Yesterday we had wind, rain and a bit of sun and then at teatime you could've knocked me down with a feather when we got snow.
Big fat, fluffy flakes that actually settled until we couldn't see the lawn after half an hour. It kept stopping and starting but in the end didn't amount to an awful lot.
Looking at it this morning I think I could sweep it all up and fit it in me washing up bowl.
So.....I've seen it and now it can go away.
This morning we have had the plumber here to fit a new tap in the kitchen sink and we asked him about converting to oil. He gave us a ball park figure which was much less than we thought and suggested a combi boiler which would solve a couple of problems and also give me a pantry........the pantry swung it for me....lol and I am now firmly on the side of going with oil. The money is there to get it done so we just need to decide on the when.
So excited to think that by next winter we might not have to deal with the coal fire and it's mess.
We are having a use it up tea tonight. Andy will have what is left of the mince from yesterday and DD and I will use up the cold meats and salad.
Tomorrow I am going to let Andy take me shopping....I must be mad but I will chain him to the trolley so that he can't keep wandering off round the shop and filling my trolley with c**p. I will also avoid the medical aisle as he thinks it very funny to go to the opposite end to me and shout me to ask if I need any ExLax or other embarrassing products. Sadly he thinks he's a comedian...lol.
Having had a sort out of my fabric and finding some one metre lengths of pretty cotton I went online and ordered a couple of patterns to make simple button shoulder dresses and little trousers for Marlowe for the summer. Another couple of metres of fabric and an embroidery hoop also fell into my basket so I am now excitedly awaiting a parcel. I haven't had a parcel through the post for ages. Doesn't take much to please me...lol.
As always I have laundry to do today. I am not looking forward to the trek across the yard to the tumble dryer but that is preferable to going down to the washing line through the mud bath which is currently our lawn.
I think the kettle needs to go on for a coffee first though.
Hope you are all keeping warm and safe.
