Good morning. Sunny spells here for the moment but showers and then proper rain later on.
I spent yesterday sorting out my new sewing room and just 3 cartons of books stash today and all the curtains we brought that should fit here. There are non at the mo as there are shutters but I like curtains for colour, acoustics and cosiness. They can wait though til we find some good curtain rails.
In Belgium we would often get snow during the last week of November and then it would get mild and soggy for December and then very cold for a few weeks in Jan/Feb. One year it stayed below freezing right into the first week of April which is a shame as I had a friend from the old BBC GW boards staying with her daughter. In 2010, the rellies came for OH's 60th at the beginning for December and we had 2' of snow which was a shock for them but very beautiful.
We have brought our winter tyres as a form of insurance on teh basis that if we'd left them behind, we'd have needed them.
Hope OH's mission is successful Chicky.
DD - your main problem with clothes may be the differences in UK and USA English - trousers/pants, jacket/vest, vest/undershirt (singlet in NZ) and so on. Also why do we have so many words for a jumper/sweater/pullover........... Good luck with house and café project.
Hosta - hope you're all packed up in the garden and ready to go and leave your treasures.
