I Hate Snow

That is what I saw scribbled in snow on the front of a car. When I woke up this morning, I could see the owner warming up the engine. After breakfast, I took a peak at the balcony and saw that he has abandone his effort. Apparently the driver has given up as the snow became heavier. Oh Well. Am attempting to head to work as normal but am hoping the snow fall will be lighter before I head off.



Well, only less than 5 weeks before I return to sunny Malaysia. Can't wait!

Snowing In Aylesbury

After hearing the people in the office talking about severe weather warnings, it came in full force after I got home. Will try and take a picture while walking to work tomorrow to show the full scale of the weather impact! Below are pics from my apartment window.

2010 London New Year Parade

I attended this years parade anticipating to see huge balloons like the below but not even one made an appearance. Where have they all deflated to?

However, this year's event was no short of a crowd, marching bands and cheerleaders. Here is a taster of what is was like (apologies for the single repeating picture from 2004, unsure how to get rid of it from the embedded gallery feature)

Despite the crowd, it was still cold and we left towards the end of the 3 hour long parade that started at noon.
