I've just been out to walk the dog, it reminded me of the time I was with Scott when we trekked to the south pole. Zane looked at me a bit strangely perhaps he had heard we ate the dogs on that trek.

Still snowing pretty much everywhere


Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity,
and I'm not sure about the former.

I didn't know that there used to be a pub called the south pole?

Incidently SB, Jimmy Savile used to wear a peculiar russian-type hat with furry earpieces, so you had better be careful

hi everyone, yes i m in my element, been for a nice walk around the arrow valley lake and then up to morrisons to do a bit of shopping. the ice treads, i bought my first pair from the pdsa shop, the second pair i bought from a shop in worcester called yeomans. i think most of the outdoor walking shops have them, they are on the internet as well. the ones i v got are only about £7, very useful. i noticed yesterday in a shop called b and m they were selling ice treads.

bought my two grandchildren snow boots, the little ones are a size 5 they look so cute but they will keep them warm together with the snow suits i bought them.

my other half works up by the airport and i have told him the m42 is supposed to be quite bad so he is staying at work much later until it clears. i used to find that everyone used to leave work in the afternoon to get home, the buses and roads were grid locked so i would pop into the pub and by about 6.00 it was fine, i even walked back half way to redditch one year and i was 8 months pregnant.

of course its a worry if you are looking after elderly people and i am only too glad that my step dad is no longer at earlswood as he would have been totally cut off.
..
take care everyone and enjoy the snow. i shall have the sledge out tomorrow

Hi all.......Jim got to Cov ok but they sent him home at lunchtime..........he was lucky with his journeys.
Our place closed at one as no customers.I took a tumble onto my knees but was hauled up by a very nice young man...bless him.

Stay safe all of you.

Good morning all


I've decided that the shopping can wait this week, I'm sure we won't starve.



Winter should only happen for a white Christmas and then leave.
