Twenty-eight days later. (Original video)

Exactly four weeks after I posted this sunny video postcard from my garden, it began snowing.

The figure in orange is our postman, and the background music is Heaven For The Weather by The Streets, a good track from an otherwise awful album.

Carry on.

Original video 2010-12-19: Cheer up, it might never happen.

Before you start complaining about the summer heat, let’s take a look back at winter. There is no speech so no transcription, and the background music is Perry Como with It’s a Good Day.

On a personal level, it’s also payday and a long weekend, so I’ll catch you next week and next month.

Carry on.

Original video 2010-12-18: Sweeping brush vs snow.

Transcription:

"I’m just about to clear the snow away from the driveway but it’s at that awkward depth where it’s not quite deep enough to use a shovel but I think it’s going to be a bit too deep to use a brush. so I don’t know how I’m going to get on with it, but let’s find out.

[Music: Fatboy Slim - Slash Dot Dash]

"Well we did have a little bit more snow falling, but fortunately nothing too serious. I’ve put salt on the path and I’ve made sure that all the paths stay clear as best as I can just now. As I film this, the sun’s actually just coming out but we’ll see how long that lasts. Anyway, time for some lunch, I think.

"Carry on."
