Well if it this cold at Lake Garda we dont stand any chance do we’
Snow and sleet hit parts of the country today as freezing winds continue to sweep Britain, sending temperatures plummeting to levels on a par with the Arctic.
Forecasters at the Met Office said temperatures across much of the country were hovering at or just above freezing, the equivalent of Hammerfest, in Arctic Norway, which recorded a temperature of 1C today.
Swathes of the north of England awoke under blanket of snow this morning, and the cold snap gripping the UK shows no signs of abating as forecasters predict temperatures could plunge as low as minus 11C in northern Scotland in the days to come.
The man of the north looks so cold in my GGrandads home County.
Ray had got out of bed in the early hours and saw our snow but lucky when i got up it had disappeared.
It was so cold though with a bitter wind.
Ray sneaked out with Louis for his early walk while I worked on the computer and made sure Debbie had got to hospital and she started her new treatment so we know she will be out of harms way for a week.
Siobhan received her flowers for being such a good carer to her Mum. The carers do get forgotten as they have all the hard work to do and it is a lonely job sometimes, but when it is someone so young it is so much harder. i know love comes into it but that doesn’t mean we couldn’t show her our appreciation.
So the Flower Warriors went to work
She was surprised and thought they were for her Mother so that was good.
I did put my coat on and wrapped up very warm to walk Louis. It wasn’t to bad the wind only blew now and again so we did get round but was so pleased to get back into the warm and watch a film.
I ad a beef curry cooking in the slow cook all day so the house as smelt of curry all day and we couldn’t wait to eat it, then had a Artic Roll. Gosh they have been going rund for years haven’t they and I still love a slice.
My recipe I love
My sponge that I made yesterday wasn’t as even as the recipe one but it did work. But I didn’t take a photo ha ha !! But it was lovely anyway>
