minus 12C today (daytime) and supposed to be colder tomorrow. Must get out and have a walk in the snow tomorrow
Ermmmmmmm, well no snow for us However it is unreasonably chilly (low 60s during the day and low 40s at night but it seems colder since it was in the 80s!!!!). Infact I have had to resort to TWO duvets at night (OH still wants all the windows open all the time - Grrr). Damn weather is all over the place this year. Time for another
lol....well its a little icy here , the drains have frozen , the ice is on the inside of the windows ( the joys of single glazed social housing) and the kids are on a major winge .
I so love winter sundays , the one hour rule still applies to the heating so they have to decide if they want it on now or tonight , little point in putting it on now because this house is a prefab with 4 inch walls that have no insulation . ive got a big batch of freezer baking to do , which at least warm up the kitchen, so i would imagine they will clear off out to friends who have heating they can afford to run ....maybe being skint has it plus points...lol
Well at the moment there is an absolute blizzard outside and in 2 hours I have to go to the Village Hall as we are holding a Car Boot Sale. If this continues I may not get out of here and I am running the main stall. Thankfully we can be indoors but I cannot see people coming out for it in this weather. I have already had one stall holder on the phone doubtful about coming and who can blame her.
Well we cancelled the Boot Sale. This is why.
Very beautiful but not to be ventured out in. I am staying close to the fire today ( well apart from having some fun in the snow with the dogs)
Stay cosy everyone
It is just not stopping and indeed is very heavy at times. I don't think I will get out of here anytime soon.
I know it's really bad at your end, talking to pals on FB from Greenock/Gourock, my old neighbour in Wemyss Bay is freaking that she can't get to work tonight, she's a sister in high dependancy at Inverclyde, dodgy
It snowed here overnight Friday/Saturday, then we had a sunny but very cold day yesterday. It was glorious but cold again this morning (not above zero since Friday) but this afternoon around 3.30 the light changed colour and I thought, 'ey-up, more snow'. Sure enough, by 4 we had thick snow falling. OH and I had agreed to go sample the German Xmas Market in the city as a treat, so we suited and booted and set off for the 2 mile walk to the cash machine, so we could catch a bus for the remaining 5 miles into the city. We looked like Yeti by the time we got there, but we had a lovely time wandering around the stalls, drinking gluehwein and eating hot food. Ran out of cash so only came home with half a Pfeffersalami (I wanted to buy a couple of different ones, but wallet did not allow). We managed to get a bus back to the cashpoint but had to walk the rest as the one bus to the village was not due for ages. So we had a nice bracing walk in the cold each way, passed a huge dog fox in a field near home who watched us curiously as we passed, the only humans on foot in the blizzard. Now drinking single malt and expecting to have to walk to work tomorrow as the idiots on the roads will be doing 5 mph and it will be quicker to walk than get OH to drop me off as usual!
Well its snowing merrily , the ice is a nightmare and ive just shovelled everyone out the door to various locations . im not at work till lunch time and its so cold that im shivering indoors despite the wooly hat and thermals, got some snow clearing to do so at least that will warm me up , trip down to mother in laws shes in her 70s and has only a single coal fire in the house so we have to go and fetch her coal in, plus shell want extra bread and milk..lol ...yet another example of the high quality social housing in the fens
Kaye, has your MiL got everything she's entitled to? Cavity wall insulation, and loft insulation?
My Mum lives in a semi-bungalow, and the next door neighbours have just moved in. When said lady came round for a cuppa, she remarked on how warm Mum's place was compared to her own, so Mum told her all about the insulation ...... lady has just had the loft insulated!
and cosy blankets to your MiL.
Dont get me on the subject of all the grants that are available, they are not however available to tenants except with the permission of landlords , private landlords see it as increasing the value of their property so many will agree, councils however can be a right royal pain , after all we have adequate insulation , all our homes are far better than we deserve as we are the scrounging class and if the fact theres no double glazing , insulation etc is a problem ,we can of course move out .
Puts away soap box , crawls back into her filling cabinet ,apologises for ranting , sorry folks
