It is the sort of cold today that gets right through to your bones. Central heating full on all day and still I am cold. How I miss my old Aga and my wood burning stove now that I have moved into my 'modern' bungalow. I really don't think I shall ever get used to it when really cold days descend on us.
It is the day when friend S takes Tess for her walk. Tess so looks forward to it and goes wild with excitement when she hears S at the door. She always comes back tired and hungry, eats her tea with gusto and settles down to sleep in her basket.
I would like to settle down to sleep early tonight in my bed because last night my God-daughter stayed and we stayed up quite late talking together and then got up at crack of dawn as she had an hour's drive to work and had to be there for eight thirty. Luckily, as she had to drive 'over the tops'
to get here the weather was not as bad as we feared - sleet and wet snow but that's all.
A pleasant afternoon today with a couple of friends calling and an hour's chat over a cup of coffee - what could be better on a cold, miserable afternoon?
