Is this what to expect in the morning (Thursday) - it is if you believe the BBC weather forecast?
Student riots (my son couldn't get into the Uni library today to study because they were occupying it), Comprehensive Spending Review, North Korea fires on South Korea and the talking point at work today? It's going to snow.
Let's get life into context. I'll have to get up early in the morning although I only live five miles from where I work because the roads are traditionally quite poor in bad weather. Generally, I don't do mornings much although I rarely sleep in because I think the day is wasted if I do. The car I have, a diesel, takes ages to warm up unlike my old version which was petrol and the screen on this one takes forever to clear. Since losing weight, the cold affects me more so it gets very uncomfortable sometimes when I'm clearing ice and frost.
A very good friend has bronchitis, another has his version of man flu and there are sniffles and sneezes all over my workplace. My son has a cough. Woe is me - how long before I submit to man flu? I've stopped feeding the fish in the ponds now, they can't digest food in cold weather and to feed them does more damage than good. The warmth of the living room this weekend is very attractive as opposed to my usual enthusiasm to get outside at every opportunity when the sun shines bright and warm.
I posted the following warning on Facebook a couple of nights ago...
Enjoy the rest of the week and take care in the cold!
