A cold start to the day brr, how's your day going? Mine so far, I've received a Morrison's food delivery, which was half hour early, so had bed head to open door. I'm longing for a coffee but got a sleeping cat draped over me, pinching my body heat.

    @Adrian_Scope I'm glad it's not just me then, I must say made me laugh at pig pjs. Your going to need some strong coffee today if not a nap. I managed to just get a coffee, the cat decided he wanted to munch out of his bowl, so that was my exit to the kettle.

    I’m having an OK day but just had some bad news (no one’s died or anything just something not good) so I am a bit upset.

    We have just walked the dog and are going to drive to the shops later to get some supplies :)

    Yes definitely a cold day - I’m pleased to find out I am getting the £25 cold weather payment. That will really help.

    @66Mustang morning, sorry to hear you have bad news. Good news on the cold weather payment, it's freezing today, I'm sat with blanket over me with heating on. Enjoy your shopping trip later.

    Cold here too, in fact it’s supposed to reach as low as minus 10c here tonight. Now that’s nippy. Funnily enough we had a delivery at eight pm last evening from amazon, they do try don’t they. 

    I was thinking about making a snowman  but I do not want to get my hands frozen, I get a little arthritis in my hands so better not. Sadly I have no grandchildren so can’t help them make one either. 

    Apart from that im fine today and after a snowy start the sun has actually just come out! First time in three days or so. ?

    @leeCal glad your day is going ok,  -3 tonight where I am. And it's 1 at the moment, can't keep my feet warm.  Who says you need kids to build a snow man lol. I'd love to build an igloo, we don't have that much snow and it would probably collapse.

    Building an igloo, hmm. I have earned a living as a carpenter but I’d draw the line at building an igloo mainly because I’m not sure what type of snow is needed. The Inuit have twenty six different names for different types of snow I learned thirty years ago but it never said which one was used to build igloos with, ha ha. Compacted I’d guess. 

    Not to mention that ice hotel they build every year somewhere. My sister has been in it but I don’t remember where she said it was. North of us I’d guess ?

    @leeCal I'm thinking you might need hard proper snow for an igloo and very low temperatures. I've watched a documentary on that ice hotel Joanna Lumley.  I really couldn't stay there the cold don't like me. It looks good tho how they've done it.

    @janer1967 hopefully the sofa gets sorted out, 18 months not long enough for a new sofa. 
    Vaccine good luck with that, I was ok with mine.
    Get your son to get his school work sent. Then put kettle on.

    @Cressida gosh you've been busy. Hopefully you can relax by the fire soon. Sounds fab a real fire. I would have to get some bread on that for hot buttered toast, like we used to back in the day. What book you reading?

    Sorry I deleted my post as I thought it was a bit moany! Lol. I have a toasting fork and now I'm craving toast ? I'm reading the Thursday Murder Club atm. I've got a raging headache now so just watching gentle TV. Re-watching Poirot for the umpteen time. During lockdown I have found myself watching predictable TV with a happy ending ? I hope your day has gone well.

    @Cressida nooo wasn't moany at all. At least you can relax now, get that toast on the go, sounds an interesting book, I do like poirot occasionally, I've been busy off and on, chilling out for a bit.

    Had a great day, helped someone, had my boiler fixed, my handyman came round to beef up my home security and I had a video chat with my first husband who is now my BFF.  Feeling blessed
