THURSDAY 29th January 2015.

What a mixture of weather.  Had  some snow too,  though it did not lie as the ground was very wet.  Then some sleet.  Oh! Such joy!  Going to be some snow/sleet on Friday and by Sunday a gloriously sunny day! Out from very early over to Soutergate Village where the views over the estuary were simply magnificent.  I never tire of admiring the wonderful place that I am privileged to live,  and work,  in.   Had a good day and got on well.  There was a  bit of disruption with traffic again in town as there had been a water leak in Daltongate so to carry out emergency repairs the road was shut off.  And it will remain closed on Friday too they say.  Had a  very good night at The Quiz.  They especially enjoyed the round on Quotes from Films.  The Rollover was NOT won so it will be about 100 next Thursday.  See you there?


WEDNESDAY 28th January 2015

A pretty lousy day on the weather front with sleet showers occurring throughout the day.  Shap and Kirkstone are closed due to snow drifts.  They are always first on the list.  And high-sided vehicles are banned form the A66.  Glad to be in Ulverston!   Popped down to PC World to get some DVD disks.  Pretty bleak down there too.  Had  a LDSB and settled down to read the papers and attempt the crossword.  Got so involved with my music that I was later than usual going to The Rose.  Brian has broken 2 fingers and has them strapped up.  Ouch!  Had the last one in The Hope where there is always a pleasant welcome and an even more welcoming open fire!

TUESDAY 27th January 2015

Out first thing across to Broughton.  The views were spectacular and a permanent joy.  I am lucky to live in such a  wonderful part of the world. Had another productive day and enjoyed myself.  there seems to be a total standstill on the former Stables Furniture Shop at the corner of Soutergate and Church Walk since the Heritage people got involved.  It is an eyesore and it may remain so for some time yet,  more is the pity.  Those happy chappies at the Met Office are forecasting a deterioration in the weather with some sleet for today followed by isolated wintry showers for Thursday accompanied by high winds.  I wonder how much pleasure and satisfaction they get for producing such forecasts? 



Another day in the, very full, and exciting,  life of a Lake District  Market -Town Estate Agent.

I am proud to be

THE ONLY NATURALISED ULVERSTONIAN IN THE ENTIRE WORLD!

To help enrich your day,  I try to include  much more information than you might normally expect on an Estate Agent's website. This is for you to digest and enjoy.   If you have an idea you think I should adopt, and would  make my website even better, then please, do get in touch by sending an eMail to;   ralphspours@btconnect.com   NOW!

What the Cumbrian skies bring us today :
Rather damp and chilly. Possibility of some more sleet but also some pleasant sunshine in between. aaa'

Remember to only bet what you can afford to lose, as its all just for a bit of fun.  The Bookies win in the end! 

Have you ever wondered how bookies  have wives dripping in gold jewellery, manage to live in classy houses and drive flashy cars?  Just think about it for a moment or two.  You will soon figure it out!

Good Luck!
