Time for tea!
As these words are being written, a howling westerly gale is blowing. It has replaced, at least for the time being, the incessant bitter north-easterlies that blighted much of south-east England, but it nevertheless continues the utterly wretched spring of 2021.
Not a mean to be deterred by such matters, however, CPRE Essex’s man with a camera – Gordon Ridgewell – is celebrating his jabs and the hopeful demise of Covid-19 before too long.
So he says Cheers! to one and all. Do raise your cups, glasses or anything else you think appropriate and join Gordon in looking ahead to a brighter future.
