Most of the Halley vehicle fleet is now back in action after its long winter slumber. It means we can do lots more outdoor stuff and we get to ride around and have fun, like me here attaching cables to the building from the basket of a crane.

New Arrivals

Fresh faces, fruit, veg, salad and mail have arrived at last

Thank you so much for the letters, postcards and packages.

I was cooking yesterday and the smell of a fresh cucumber overwhelmed me. Some of my fellow winterers hadn't seen a banana for 2 years so that caused quite a stir. Tonight for dinner we had boiled potatoes, carrots and leeks, all done 'al dente' so we could apprieciate that crisp fresh feel.
Even more exciting, yesterday I had salad for lunch: crunchly lettuce and juicy tomatoes. Mmmmmm.
