That wasn't so bad, but then I have had a headache for 48 hours so I am probably a bit immune.
I was looking forward to going out and playing in the snow but it's too cold. I will wait until the weather warms up a bit, maybe twenty degrees C.

Only a drop of 30 degrees, more of a thermal shock, it's a wonder I haven't shattered.

I'm sitting here eating my toast and marmalade which I shouldn't be eating, but she didn't see me nick the marmalade out of the cupboard. I just have to get it back without her seeing it.

Well Phil, as long as you don't ruin her day with a coma I suppose there's no great harm done, it's a good job she is there to keep you under control most of the time.

I don't like being surreptitious, but If I didn't life would be so bland. Anyway I'm sure she turns her back intentionally sometimes, realising that I'm not about to be too stupid.

You'll get over it quicker if you open a bottle of something strong.

I'll rephrase that if I may, You'll get over the shock of it quicker if you open a bottle of something strong.
Right, due to unacceptable number of IE crashes this morning I am about to upgrade this laptop to version 8.
I also need to go sleep.

You young kids, I dunno,a whiff of snow and you fall to pieces, never like that in my day, hauling 10 ten of coke and coal up Avenue Road,
and that's before breakfast, if we had any, and then up to poultons in Great Lister Street to get the veg in, then Dale End Marsh and Baxter
for the sliced corn beef and pork pie, then down to the House that Jack Built to see if they had any cheap cups, so that we didn't have to drink out of jam jars.
Kids today.

John

Done all that, been there, and I've got the tea shirt, but it doesn't make it any warmer. I remember one winter when I was about 13 going with my uncle in his old ex G.P.O. Morris Van out to a farm on Packhorse Lane Wythall where a tree had fallen down and the farmer had said he could have it. It must have been one of the coldest days on record. My uncle Dave sawed and chopped it into fire sized logs loaded it in to the van and he was stripped off to the waist while I sat in the van with my clothes on and half of his as well over the top of mine. I still remember how cold it was to this day.

Yes Phil, they were made of sterner stuff in those days, I put it all down to the food, or lack of it, how many kids eat stew today with dumplings
and porridge for breakfast, I don't mean ready brek and all that mamby pamby food, good wholesome grub that sticks to your ribs.
If we had a cold (very rare) no medicine for us, a large spoonful of real blackcurrant jam in a mug of hot water, and we were as right as rain.

Sorry I don't eat porridge half Scottish or not, oats are for feeding to the livestock not people. I don't eat stew or if I want to be posh casserole. I don't mind a good thick vegetable soup though I think its just the idea of boiling beef that puts me off. I think it takes all the taste out of it.

Good for them Lyn,my kids and grandkids are the same, because I brought them up that way, I say to them if I take them out, where do you want to eat, the answer is always the same, anywhere that does roast dinners and apple pie and custard, getting very hard to find these days.
