This is ridiculous. The snow keeps falling and then freezing and then snowing and then freezing and we have no grit on the roads and no snow tyres in this country and yes, I have said this all before, but it is crazy. Schools closed, people warned to stay off the roads unless absolutely essential.....
I did say this was turning into a weather blog. My life is being ruled by the weather at the moment. I cannot risk falling and damaging more of me. Enough already. So today, as it is Epiphany, the tree came down, and all the decorations are now packed away. I will miss the lights on the tree, and the warmth and cosy atmosphere the whole thing helped to create in my home. I don't have a fireplace, so I have no dancing flames to watch and so the tree did splendidly instead. Having David around to pop everything back into the loft helped too. He will be going back to uni soon, so I am making a list of things for tall strong young men to do before then!
And I have Shanghai Pork bubbling away in the slow cooker. It smells wonderful, and if it tastes anywhere near as good as it smells, I will post the recipe. I had to make the marinade yesterday and leave it to sit in the fridge overnight.
So that is my rivetting news for the day. My crochet hook is calling.
