Friday, April 6
It snowed or sleeted last night and this morning, but now it is clear and bright, albeit not particularly warm.
The girls are at home and we have walked to the beach to collect sticks for Easter. Not just any sticks but little willow branches with furry buds. This is our first beach walk of the year, and we are scampering through snow and slush to find the branches.
We walked past Plantagen, which has been equipped with a new layout and a new logo. It is open today, but it seems that some legal freak enables it to open every day of the year.
Later we will watch television until about three in the morning, as the programmes slowly sink below the stupidity horizon.
