It snowed today - albeit briefly. What did manage to stick then fled before some sudden bright sunshine.
Nevertheless, it is still cold; and I remembered fondly my trip to warm Malta last year.
Strangely enough, even when in Malta, I was reminded of Staffordshire - when an Arriva bus came flashing past me. Arriva, which runs many of the bus-routes in Staffordshire, recently won the contract for Malta's bus services too.
