ON OUR LAST ARCTIC adventure to Drogheda, I used half a box of Persil to get traction up the hill from the cousins. Last night, with the car sunk two inches into frozen slush, we decided to spend the night 450 metres up the hill in Windsor Lodge. I was surprised to find the B&B open on Christmas because two other Drogheda hotel we've used before were locked down. I used a warm fire and a comfy armchair to read The Checklist Manifesto, had an over-sized Irish breakfast and then decided to push off for southern climes after reading Jonathan Grimes pronounce the Boxing Day Thaw on Twitter. After a warmer room than we have at home, we decided to return to Windsor Lodge as early as next month. We expect to be joined by more surgeons next time.
