And the view from the window is more like January. Apparently a warm front is coming in and hitting the cold front already here and causing havoc yet again. The good news is that it is not set to last. The bad news is the view of my garden from the computer room and bedroom windows at 11.10am.
There is about four inches of snow and it is still falling. At a quarter past eleven I am still sitting here in my dressing gown, too lazy to have a shower and get dressed.
Tess took one look out of the front door and only with the encouragement of my slippered foot did she go about two feet outside the door on to the lawn and do a wee - then back in to her basket close to the radiator where she has remained ever since.
Now I shall shower, dress and make myself some soup from a variety of vegetables in my fridge for my lunch. The chiropodist comes at four - that is the extent of my day I am afraid.
What are you finding to do on a day like this? The weather seems to be pretty general all over the country - but rising temperatures to come - don't despair!
