How is it for you? The media has made so much of this weather system so it will be interesting to see how bad it gets. We’ve seen a few snow flakes today as we drove from Cheshire to London. I’ve brought my wellies with me which my German sister in law says are for rainy days not snowy days. They wear snow boots over there. Anyone got a pair?
I thought i'd be cute and do an online order for groceries to be delivered and then hunker down for the duration of the bad weather with my stockpile of food!
Unfortunately the snow was too bad and my delivery and order was canceled by Asda this morning OH and myself braved the elements at 8 this morning and slowly drived to the nearest store for a weeks provisions. Now i'm all warm and snuggly with a bowl of pea soup with extra spinach. Cats dozing on the sofa....life is good

Well the ‘Beast’ has definitely arrived! Too cold to go out and dangerous under foot anyway as footpaths are slippy around here. Feel so sorry for people whose boilers have packed up - know of 2 so far.
Boiler has gone kaput at the village school today, it can't be fixed until tomorrow, so having grand daughter for the day, OH has been out for food shopping, he bought some mincemeat so we can make mince pies
It is bitterly cold here, and snowing right now, it thawed quite a bit yesterday, but settling today, we are luckier than some parts of the country with red alerts.

Temperatures are due to rise on Saturday. It can’t come fast enough! The one family whose boiler was not working paid almost £300 today for an e ginger. The problem was not the boiler but frozen pipes.
Nice to get some time with your grand daughter Jazzy Always a good feeling to get unexpected time off school.
I will tell him Trisha he's been very challenged past few days, in bad conditions. He said today he can't believe that some people still drive as if theres no problem on the roads, especially people in 4WDs, they seem to think their cars aren't going to slip or skid off the roads but they have no more grip than any other and you see so many of them in ditches around here.
It is bitterly cold here, I have stayed in all day today and decorated the attic bedroom, nice and relaxing. It's really not worth venturing out if you don't need to.
My mum has a walled garden all round her house with a very tall thick gate which she locks at night. Since she locked it the other night, snow has fallen which has now turned to thick perilous ice in her courtyard garden. Now she can't get out because she can't cross the courtyard and no one can get in because she's locked the gate
