Greetings from a sunny, but cold Mersea Island. No snow here, but everything is still rather 'white'! -6 overnight. The lovely Gail gave us mulled wine around a BBQ early last evening before we all adjourned to the bar to await the food from the building next door. Gail kept us all informed on queue length and when it had suitably subsided, we gallant men sent the fairer sex to get their food first. This show of chilvalry with 'Ladies first' paid dividends as they arrived back with our portions as well. Anyone would think we planned it that way!
