Another heavy fall of snow overnight. By tea time yesterday, when it was beginning to freeze again, some of the snow had gone. This morning it is even more wintry. But at present the sun is shining directly into my sitting room and kitchen windows and thus warming the bungalow a little.
Today should have been our Poetry meeting but sadly friend W has had to cancel it. Nobody would be able to get through (some of the group come from Richmond). In all the years it has been going this is the first time it has been cancelled.
Friend S can't get her car out to come and take Tess for her usual Wednesday walk, but friend J has rung to say that she will take her this afternoon. Thank goodness for such helpful friends. Tess took one look out of the front door and refused to go into I actually put her on the front step (twelve hours since she had done a wee).
My son has just rung to say that he can't get his car out of his drive - and in any case he lives down an un-made-up lane which is also impassable. Our local Comprehensive school is closed.
But, I have to say, sitting here in the warm with a cup of coffee and looking out on the wintry scene is rather pleasant. (the only thing missing is today's Times which hasn't arrived yet).
