By my (perhaps incorrect) calculation, there are only 41 shopping days left until Christmas ! Just thought people would like to know … and that includes today !

I fear that the recent bout of good weather – well “good” when compared to months of unending rain – has come to a stuttering halt with the arrival of the recent cold snap. So much so that there was a thin layer of frost on the car this morning, albeit I was parked out in the open.
But last night we had to put on the heating for ten minutes just to take the edge off the cold ! And I ventured out at lunchtime without a jacket, as having seen the bright sunshine thought I’d be OK – the minute you stepped into the shadows, the cold cut through you !
So wrap up and face into the winter with a smile on your face – next year can’t possibly be as bad ! And to top it all off and start our usual seasonal disorder, I saw Christmas cake for sale in a shop today ! Feckin’ Christmas cake – already … it just ain’t right !
