Nightmare Before Christmas!

This morning we drove the very icy and foggy 12 miles to Tesco Banbridge for more essential supplies - actually just a cover for getting John / and all of us 'Annie Lennox - A Christmas Cornucopia' a brilliant CD released for Christmas. 

The tracks are as you would expect, beautifully produced with a spine tingling blend of spirit, nostalgia, melancholy, and joy. 

A must have for this time of year - you could still download it! 

The journey was as nothing compared to the pandemonium that met us in Tesco. They are open 24 hours today, and yet with all the pushing, shoving and general grumpiness you would have thought that this was the last shopping event ever. I guess that the combination of ice and snow plus impending holiday festivities had pushed some people over the edge!

Still it was well worth it, to get the music of Annie Lennox, and for the frosty scenes.

Corbet Lough. Closed for fishing!
