    The railways used to sell it in huge quantities to make what are now known as "breeze" blocks. According to books I've read about the British railways the younger apprentices were sometimes known as "clinker monkeys" because one of the first jobs they were given was scooping the clinker off the tracks where it had been dropped when the fires were doused.

    Gorgeous. :)

    Speaking of showers, I think I have seen more rainbows this week than in the rest of the year combined. Nearly.

    Seems Glasgow has a bit of bother though. You've been lucky! It hasn't stopped raining here all day (and yesterday and the day before...)

    Aye, it's full of Glaswegians! ;)

    Sorry, was witness to a Glaswegian at work getting overly precious (as they do often do) and was reminded how loudly and often they'll tell you they're the best folk in Scotland (and by extension, the world). ;)

    So true! :D

    Well, true insofar as they say it. Not true in a factual sense. It's like they're overcompensating for something...

    Raining, but at least the wind's dropped. With the jet stream stuck over us the forecast is for rain as far as it goes.

    Tick......tick......tick......

    Waiting for the first snarky comment.

    Looks like quite a nice day today, hopefully bring me out of my own black cloud.
    We are going down the mines on the Edge, at Alderley Edge this afternoon. They get opened up every so often and they do small tours. Been meaning to do it for years. If I am not seen again, it may be a replay of the Thai footballers, considering how much rain we have had!

    A very chilly 3.9C and dropping! Sun just about to make an appearance. No wind, no rain (yet).

    Allegedly 10C here, but doesn't feel it. Grey and promise of light rain later.

    Still raining. It rained all day yesterday, and quite possibly all night. No sign of it easing up.

    Grey and wet. Lightish rain at the mo. Can guarantee it’ll be like it all day as we have been given a stall on the outside edge of the covered market hall with a possibility of rain coming in if it gets very heavy.

    Amazingly the rain has stopped and there's blue sky between the clouds.
    Won't last though.
