Not sure if this count as a close run thing but the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland came within 3 days of leaving the European Union without any arrangements to deal with the complex interactions that have built up over the years since the UK joined the Common Market back in the 1970’s. The agreed extension appears to allow the UK to leave the EU anytime in the next 92 days. As I, like most people, are sick of the whole thing I don’t intend to restart the countdown clock. Enough is enough and whatever happens happens.
On a much more positive note (I’m not sure that is the case given the flooding we have continued to experience for the last few weeks) it was a beautiful morning to capture some images. Today was the first real frost of the season and as I passed people preparing to go to work there was a continual scraping of windscreens and spraying of antifreeze. I am starting to think that the River Soar is my River Stour and Jubilee Park is my Flatford Mill. Now I am not for one second suggesting am the next John Constable but rather I do visit the same area again and again and try to milk every last drop of creative juice out of it. I will let you decide if I have succeeded.
