Hi everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend. I think we can safely say that Winter is now here, after having quite mild weather, with lots of rain included. We had some snow overnight as all the pavements were covered yesterday morning travelling to work.
No I didn't walk, my lovely mum took me whilst picking my son up to spend the day with him and then picked me up after work too.
What would we do without our mums?
Above is a picture of my new slippers I got for Christmas 2015 from my mum, and boy do I need then now, especially if your home is like ours with wooden floors. I was worried last night because Henry fell a sleep in his day clothes last night and so slept in his long sleeve vest and t-shirt and nappy. I did try to put his sleep suit on but he kicked up such a fuss that I just laid him back down in his cot and made sure he was covered over with a nice warm blanket and he slept soundly all night.
We did have the heating on through out the night, and my heart really goes out to those who are alone in this cold weather, or don't have heating, as it can get so cold especially at the early hours.
It is hard to balance the utility bills when it gets colder as this is when our gas and electric will start to go up. What we do is just try to subsidize throughout the day by turning off any lights that don't need to be on during the day off, and make sure we all have an extra layer on, and have plenty of hot drinks in our tummy's to help warm us up.
If you know of someone who is alone this winter then why not pop around, as sometimes like my Nan was when she was quite elderly and couldn't got out anymore, was just pleased to see a familiar face and have some company.
With the icy roads and pavements it is essential to take extra care when out on the streets as it will be quite slippery. Not the weather for court shoes or stilettos, but I bet there are those who still try.
No for me it is my boots all the time during this time of the year, unless I am running. I know you shouldn't do it but when it gets bitterly cold where your ears are stinging if no hood or hat, and fingers due to lack of gloves, it will be tights under trousers or leggings. Yes, the fashion police may arrest me for that, but all I will say "It is what I do so deal with it",
I AM NOT FEELING COLD BECAUSE OF FASHION
If ladies get away with wearing tights with sandals I sure can get away with tights under trousers or leggings.
So lets wrap up for the winter and enjoy when we can, being cozy in front of the TV and a cuppa.
Many thanks for reading,
