Further down the country they seem to have really caught it today. Here further North it is bitterly cold, there is a strongish Easterly wind blowing and the odd fine snow falls, but nothing settling so far. Things might be totally different in the morning of course. And it is set to be like this until at least the middle of the week so best to hunker down and keep warm, which is what I am doing.
My Tesco order came this morning and it took me a long to unpack it, disinfect where necessary and put it all away. But I could manage a good fortnight if we were snowed in so no worries there.
So what to report today? Not a lot really. My Carer and an hour's chat with her as she bustled round tidying everywhere and giving me a helping hand; a quick visit from Tesco's driver - they are always very efficient and chatty. It took me ages to unpack and even longer to find the two books of stamps I had ordered (they were stapled to the back of my bill). After lunch I had a lovely half hour call from J in Australia - it is so kind of her to ring (if you are reading this thank you Joannie) - ten o'clock at night there and hot - Summer there of course - and a nice chat with my old school friend. Five or six of us, all the same age and in various stages of mobility. Good to compare notes.
No walk out - far too cold. A good read this afternoon and then this evening - Country File and the Antiques Road Show - now being made during Lockdown so no crowds, no audience and nothing like as good to watch. Then I am watching The Great Pottery Throwdown competition. Is anyone else watching it? If so what do you think to it?
Bed time calls. I am all locked up and the heating turned down to eighteen so all I have to do is undress and get into bed - and it will be welcome tonight as I had a late night last night. Sleep well dear blogging friends - see you - metaphorically speaking - tomorrow.
