Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr – cold or what!!!!

Yesterday it was a very cold day brrrrr  & it’s still cold today!!   When I walked round to the bungalow someone had washed their car and thee was quite an expanse of  water  frozen on the road and it looked like a skating rink!!  I avoided it as I’ve no desire to end up with any broken bones.

Joe was round at the bungalow at 8am yesterday as the Gas supplier wanted to check the meter and by then time I arrived at 11 he painted the bedroom.    I’ve not been sleeping to well recently I wake up and the can’t get back to sleep.   After we went for a late lunch at the Harrington Arms at Sawley and sat beside a lovely open fire – it was really cosy.   Sadly we had to leave to return home

I’m frozen today which is not like me as I’m usually warm -  suffering with ‘p0wer surges’ every so often so I don’t often wear an overcoat.

I borrowed a fellow crafters Sweet Summer stamp  set to make a few cards to show on my blog . Sweet Summer is one of the free stamps sets featured in the Sale a ~Bration 2011 leaflet
