What's the weather like in your area?

We've actually got sun at the mo! WManchester.

Had more snow overnight, still not a lot, & it's still snowing as well as the sun! Was below freezing again at first light. Birds have their first food top-up of the day. Will give them afters later.

No need to move cars around until Wednesday afternoon, so hope the gritter lorry repeats it's trip down our road. J.

Now awiting on return call from plumbing/heating co. 'We assumed job complete, hence the invoice', says lady. Nooo, still need electrics to fan doing & some special loft tile I think. Plus the s*****g boiler!

This is going to run & run I think. Not convenient for us/me until mid Feb what with all the appointments have. Mind you that should suit them, as always booking a couple of weeks ahead for jobs.

Freezer dripping nicely. Nearly done, then to clean it & put back onto fast freeze. Have advised daughter thinks about getting a frost free one! 2 friends swear by them. J.

Back again. Glad most of us all nice & snug inside.

OH had more snow his end too, so he walked to work! Probably safer than driving with thiose hills around there though.

My outing tomorrow has been cancelled, so daughter doesnt have to move her car after all. She could take me to my scan on Wed as we're going out for meal afterwards anyway. Ah, daughter says doesnt know way- come on she's been there before. Ok my car wont be iced up etc. So she'll still have to move hers out of way or nobody going anywhere! I could drive hers, but she wouldnt be a happy bunny.

After investigating freezer decided to defrost it after all. So 3 cool boxes/bags outside back door! Use one of those sprays which saves the pan of hot water & a lot of effort. Would also highly recommend those freezer liners that you can buy.

Now have bowl of breadcrumbs waiting for birds next snack! Found some Xmas goodies too- hmm, dare I? J.

Morning Jean,

Nice pic- you have got a lot more than us. We're pretty close to M/C centre as the crow flies, so rarely get it too bad. Except backing onto open ground, facing East, so it can whistle through there sometimes.

Need to actually do something. Back later. J.

Oh Bjay, how awful. Stay at home till it lands? Yes I know then quite a long drive, but at least it's daylight. Ah, slight snag, Monday morning rush hour. Poor you & OH.

Wonder if OH got more snow? Woodhead/Snake passes both closed, as per usual. J.

Morning all.

'B'boiler again, am phoning company anyway today so.........

We've had, & still having more snow. Fine sort, but more than before & does look very pretty out there with all the big tree branches dusted. Daughter just done morning birdfeed patrol.

Now to catch up. Take care folks. J.

I have abandoned all thoughts of defrosting freezer tomorrrow. Huge full tub of icecream, plus daughters' 'special' one, new! I shall have a root around in there though & start the chuck out/must use it senario. May 'blitz' the kitchen instead, long overdue, but depends on motivation & energy.

Bjay, thx again. That way one of us will remember. Have decided to suss out the dahlia tubers actually in a Parkers GC next week. Still time then to do an order e/w if not up to what I want. Since no real detour to go there after the hospital, why not?

Now do I want to do some ironing? J.
