It’s getting better

Well, we’ve had some more snow overnight, but it’s only a dusting.
The main thing is that the wind has dropped, and it’s currently 1º with a real feel of minus 7, a massive improvement on the last few days! It may even creep up to 3º with a real feel of minus 5 later this afternoon. Hurrah (sort of).
Hubby decided to wipe down the windows this morning. And only made things worse, so whilst I was walking the dog, he was there with a bowl and cloth washing off the sand and salt that has been having a love affair with the glass.
Apparently we can expect a mixture of rain and snow tonight.

I walked Maggie round the Avenue as these past couple of days we have not been venturing far because of the wind, not only almost knocking us off our feet but freezing us to the bone and beyond.
Our walk was surprisingly pleasant, though naturally she had to say hello and sniff all her grassy friends she hadn’t seen for so long. The fresh snow has almost gone now, and the pavements are mainly clear though I was really annoyed to see so much dog muck where people hadn’t bothered to clear up either their grass or pavement deposits.
Maggie did her business and when we got back, I suggested going up into town to get a couple of baguettes to go with day three of our stew.

We decided to walk, not only in a bid to increase the figure on my distance spreadsheet which for March is looking pretty pathetic so far, but to actually see what things were like.
Not bad actually, not bad at all, as the main road is clear, though there are more walkers than traffic. The side roads leading down to our estate are still glazed and a little dodgy in places, but nothing like it was, so after getting our bread we went into the cafe and treated ourselves to toasted teacakes which we shared with Maggie before returning home.
It is really mild now, though we felt the wind in the open spaces on the walk back.
Distance clocked up including the Avenue, just over 2 miles so far today.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Our snow us melting and the only drama today – still no milk in our local shops.

    • Bummer. Hubby and I have the skimmed UHT milk as when we lived in the cottage, it was miles to a shop, so we’d buy a month’s supply at a time. Now we find it hard to tolerate fresh milk and if we visit MOH, we take our own as he has the full cream variety which is way too rich for us!
      We’ve been in the supermarket today and deliveries are getting through as the shelves are well stocked. They also bake bread on the premises, hence our baguettes which are lovely!
