Good morning all, just about.

Hope all are well, b*****y awful weather! I'll have a nice cup of tea please Becks no sugar, I'm not hard to please.  Is Jess's nursery open?all the schools etc round here are closed.

Bjay, what an awful time you have had, my sympathies are winging their way to you~~~~~~~

Love the pictures, the iris certainly cheered me up, everything here is under 6" of snow

It's bad enough getting food from the freezer in the garage,I couldn't face defrosting it, it would take a week. I take it Jo's is in the house. Hope you get your heating sorted soon, you could do without the hassle.

Must go now, things to do.Where to start?  Don't feel like doing anything

Have a nice snuggerly day.

Morning Peeps,

Hope everyone is ok. The snow has caught up with us.

We have cancelled the trip to Stratford on Avon, decided it's not worth the risk, and re- scheduled for 11th Feb, hopefully we will be snow free by them.

Glyn, will get back to you with recipe for Pea and Ham soup when I have a bit more time.

Back soon.

Just a light covering of snow at the moment, hopefully we have missed the worst of it.

We have had a sprinkling of snow, if it was rain it would be drizzle, just a light covering..

Does any of you watch Michael Portillo's Railway journeys 6.30 BBC2? this evening he is visiting Lincoln,and the Cathedral, about 3 miles from where I live, Take a look if you have time, I think you might enjoy it.

Trip to Stratford looks like it might have to be cancelled but will decide on Sunday. I have been watching Father Brown this afternoon and have caught up with the soaps.

Lovely pictures of the dogs, our cat hasn't been out for days takes one look and then at me, I can see what she's thinking, "you must be joking" turns round and heads back to the sofa in the snug.

Kate. Sorry you have hurt your knee's ouch!  and Jo hope you are soon feeling better, a suntan always makes you look better, no matter how you feel

Don't know which is worse, our cold or the heat in Australia. The heat I think.

Cheers for now

Good afternoon all.

No snow here at the moment, we have been extremely lucky so far, we have just got the remnants of previous fall, but b**** cold none the less.

I have just been making a big pan of pea and ham soup, and am now getting bored with having to stay in doors I have a fear of falling and breaking a leg,  I don't seem to have the same sense of balance as I once had.

Lots of lovely snowy pictures, one thing about the snow, every ones garden looks the same.

Keep warm and safe.

Geoff!!! what are you like, they don't get any better.

We have been to Morrison this morning, maybe a few more people about and it'sd not as cold as I expected, but then it always gets warmer before the snow

Just going to do a bit of baking whilst the oven is on cooking chicken for tonights tea.  Few lemon tarts and jam turnovers.

Can't see us getting to Stratford on Monday

Take care all those who have to go out.

Hi Becks, you'll need all those clothes, its -3c here today. We had to go out yesterday and it was awful, so cold it made your face ache, so the more clothes the better perhaps a balaclava might be useful

I see we have the weather forecast back

Good morning all.

What a busy lot you have been since yesterdays visit.

We have decided to do supermarket shop today in case we get all the snow they are forecasting, with a bit of luck we won't get as much this far east.

We are due to go away for a few days on Monday, but it looks as if we might have to postpone, but will wait and see what happens.

Our daughter is taking vit D pills after she damaged her foot. They did some test and said she had a deficiency so she take one a day, goes back for more blood test later this month.Seems quite a common condition, although she eats a good diet and is out everyday walking the dog. Apparently a lot of children are getting rickets as they don't play outside so much these days, too many computers, tvs etc.

Bjay.- What about buffalo chicken you can do it with wings, or drumsticks, nice and spicy, goes down well at ours. Lots of recipes on the internet Is it a hot or cold meal?

Must go a do something

Enjoy your day.

Very cold -3c at the moment and not likely to get any warmer as the day goes on.Sun trying to get through mist,the trees look beautiful with all the frost hanging from the branches.

Keep warm if you can.
