Bother

Driveway so iced out that I had to don microspikes to cross the flattest part without skiing back to the start, put my wife’s car in the driveway drainage while sliding sideways having just tapped the gas to pull out, spent an hour sanding and trying to get the car un-stuck, my wife wound up calling out of school because of the conditions and my stunt-driving in her car. Now to make a coffee.

Is it too early to load it with Ireland’s finest?

No pictures of the ledge-scrambling for obvious reasons.

Tuckered

Hiked two mountains requiring crampons, ate a quick supper, went ice skating for a couple of hours. Time to brew up a tea, eat some fruit, and sleep like a corpse.
