God, its minus nine degrees centigrade today. At 8:00 am! No wonder I've resorted to the silly wollen hat, scarf and old mans gloves.. Getting too old for this malarky.

Still. It was sunrise as I drew away in the train this morning, leading to the once a year statement:

"Aye, the nichts are fair drawing oot!". A sample of this language can be found here - good luck.
