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!
