Well here we are at another year. Christmas was lovely, a real Family affair this year. Both Sons here, Step-Daughter, Daughter-in-Law, GrandDaughter and Mother, so it was lovely.
No 2 Son has had another Birthday (29) and we had, what is becoming tradition, a meal out with friends.
Then there has been the snow! Boy! Has there been snow! The photo above was taken on the 20th December, not a very good picture as I had to try and snap it through the windscreen, but the little blobs you can see in the road are phesants .............. traffic jam Hillsborough style!
This next one was taken yesterday and shows that, yes, it is still snowing and the drive is an ice skating rink. I am housebound. Starting to get a little stir crazy, but I have no washing or ironing, my wardrobe has been cleaned out and a big bag of things for the Charity Shop is sitting waiting for me to be able to get to it, the kitchen cupboards are all nice and tidy and those bottles of miscellaneous things that are probably
harbouring something potentially lethal have all been discarded.
My house is the cleanest it has been for ages, but I am BORED! I want to be able to go out! It is even too cold to go and sit for long in my lovely haven, my workshop. It is even too cold to sit for too long in the house, we are considering lighting the fire for this evening as I am sure I saw a brass monkey looking for a welder in the bathroom this morning.
This is was we woke up to this morning, freezing fog that has hung around all day, so no wonder the outside temp has not gone above minus 2 all day.
