So a lot of things have happened this week but how could my word be anything other than cold! I know most of the country will be feeling the same.
I think we may have got off lightly with a lot of the weather, I may be eating my words by the time this is posted, but we haven’t had a huge amount of snow, just an relentless flurry of the white stuff. It has been so, so cold though.
On Monday I had to go and pick up the kids from school in my wheelchair. There was a slight flutter of snow but it wasn’t sticking around. It was, however, incredibly cold and chilly and it didn’t matter how wrapped up I was I still felt the bite.
I vowed not to go out again this week, but on Wednesday I had to pop to the end of the street to the GP surgery, again in my wheelchair, again in the flutter of snow that didn’t settle.
I’m so lucky that my house is warm, we have only a slight draft in the living room but if we draw the curtains we don’t feel it, and we haven’t had the heating on that much during the daytime. All the bedrooms are cosy except for the Little Man’s room and he has a big duvet to keep him warm. If he gets too cold he can always come and cuddle with me, I won’t mind.
I look at the news and see how awful it’s been almost everywhere else and feel quite lucky. Yes, it’s freezing cold but we’ve had little in the way of transport disruption and the school has been open all week. The kids finally have a snow day today, I’m just glad they don’t have to go out in the cold.
My fingers are tightly crossed that the Beast from the East and Storm Emma are soon packing there bags and leaving our country alone.
Keep warm everyone, and don’t go out unless you really have to x
