Thanks, Stephen I have a sort of excuse this time, I had an early appointment in the Medical Centre, so I was pushed for time and it slipped my mind.

 An update from yesterday evening.

6 pm update - Here on Fuerteventura Golf nowhere near like forecast whilst our shade temperature did get up to 27C about 1 pm it has been much cloudier than forecast all day and we have the odd shower this afternoon.

We do have mixed feelings about the Weather here compared to back in the English Lake District Windermere area which first thing was -3c 🥶🥶🥶 and during the day has had a least 100mm of snow 🌨️🌨️🌨️, even the snow plough/gritter had problems 😳😳😳

6.20 pm - Just had a message from a friend who lives between Windermere and Kendal and they have had 300mm, a foot, of snow 😂😂😂
