Dh and I are having an early night tonight. We've both had busy days today, even so we went for a half hour walk this evening and got some food shopping on the way back. We've just got in, I've boiled the kettle for a hot water bottle, made us both a cup of tea and now we're both reading in bed (except I've stopped to quickly post this!) Just wanted to say thanks for everyone's continued support of my blog. It's freezing again tonight. Wrap up warm everyone!

|I dug ovrr three beds. Same again tomorrow!|
Being British I LOVE talking about the weather- I think it's genetic ;) and for weeks now everyone has been saying we need a cold snap after all this wet weather we've been having, to kill off the bugs and make it feel like a proper winter and get everything drying out. Well today it has arrived here in the South with Dh reporting it's -4 outside (that's cold for us - please don't laugh anyone living anywhere that is 'really' cold! ). I've gone rogue and put the radiator on, something I rarely do in the mornings. It is usual for me to wear coats, gloves and a hat inside in winter.
Burt has eaten his breakfast and gone back to bed. As it's supposed to be wet again within the week I will go to the allotment today. Although I won't be able to do digging, I can weed and get some exercise. I was reading about the Land Girls working their socks off harvesting beets in ground that was frozen solid. If they can do that I'm sure I can manage a bit of weeding! I'm going to make a big soup at lunch time to have over the weekend. Dh has taken on extra work as we're saving whilst waiting for work to begin on the roof, and I am bringing household expenses down as much as I can.
In addition to the allotment, today I will be cleaning and tidying the house, going on a walk and later on, getting the fire on and doing some reading. Plenty of hot drinks and maybe warm scone with butter and a cup of tea :)
Have a lovely weekend, stay warm!

Firstly, I'd just like to thank everyone for all their lovely comments and support yesterday. I did get the fire on in the evening and Dh and I played cards. I then had an early night reading one of my new novels written in 1947.
Today, it's been raining on and off but I really wanted to 'do' something. As we've gotten a bit behind with our walking (we're doing Ilonas 1000 mile challenge at Life After Money blog) I suggested we did a ten mile walk. Dh and i love walking but we've never done 10 miles in one go before. We decided as it's so wet and muddy to stick to mostly country roads and pavements. The first 5 were pretty easy, then it started raining which wasn't as much fun, luckily it stopped for the last 2 so we dried out a bit. We did it!
It feels like a great achievement. This evening I have some planning to do for some games and a treasure hunt I am planning for when my nieces visit so I better get cracking!
