This morning Bluemeanie and I woke bright and early, packed up the car, and started on our 7-hour journey (6 hours of actual driving time) to Haguenau.

The drive was straight-forward, and we even saw some snow on the ground next to the road on the way.  The most eventful part of the journey was being stuck for about 20 minutes behind a broken down vehicle when disembarking from the Eurotunnel shuttle.  I took the above photo in the shuttle, without a flash (which is prohibited on the shuttle) and am quite chuffed because I customised the white balance manually.

It was good to be back in Haguenau this evening, and to chat with Mme Wolff.  I was last here at the end of October with Pinkie. Mme Wolff said she was pleased to see us as her house is empty, except for her (6 empty bedrooms) and she said she doesn’t enjoy sleeping in the house alone. So actually Bluemeanie, Mme Wolff and I each have a floor to ourself.. (I?m on the top floor).

Tonight they are forecasting a temperature of -1C rising to a maximum of about +1C tomorrow.  However tomorrow Bluemeanie and I head South for Switzerland, and the ski-slopes!
