Dahlings, how are you? Really, a kitchen extension with an orangery and water feature? Me? Oh no, I am very happy with my beige linoleum thank you (right eye twitches).
Here we had a bit of snow yesterday but just a light sprinkling, I have to be honest I wasn't completely happy with the coverage.
I suppose I am a bit like Faux Fuchsia and her Christmas tree coverage - she likes it plentiful and well distributed. Well so do I, with snow.
By the way, here is a pic of the Blighty 2012 Christmas tree. It did not have uniform coverage, as Boy 1 of his own accord took it upon himself to decorate it. So there is heavy ornament application around the front and lower branches. But I don't mind. I think he shows great promise - one day perhaps he could be a window dresser for Selfridges.

Right, back to the cold weather.
Luckily I bought some boofy snow boots in the sales.
I also rolled out my new fluffy waistcoat, Mr B bought it for me for my birthday, I must let him know. It's very soft and stroke-able, like having a cat except it does not bring mice into the house or scratch the sofa, fingers crossed.
Last night I decided I wanted a Korat cat, till I read they were very sensitive and got upset by loud noises. Hmm, probably not ideal for Blighty HQ then.
It is essential to eat properly when the weather is cold.
I have been reading in the newspapers that according to the Government and various charities, it is very important to keep an eye on the elderly in this cold weather and call in on them to make sure they are alright.
Well, it's been a couple of days now since the cold snap started, and I am still waiting for my visit.
I even rang the council, I believe in being pro-active.
I talked to a very nice lady and explained I was an older lady and would very much like a young person to drop by the house, to make sure I was nice and warm. I said I wasn't fussy, a young man, 6 ft 4, blonde, blue eyes, lightly muscled, six pack preferable....there would be some light duties around the house...

Gosh, I am feeling much warmer already...
