Jack has arrived in force.
Last night, the gritter lorries were out, and this morning when I let the dog out at 7 am, the car was covered in ice.
The bin men were beginning their rounds, the early one this week is the green bin for grass cutting etc. We don’t have one as it costs extra on our council tax, which already stings us over £1300 a year. The guy had to thump the lids as they were frozen shut.
An hour later and the sun’s up. It looks ike it’s going to be a glorious day, but cold.
We’ve got nothing on the agenda other than a blood test for Hubby this afternoon to do with his hospital appointment on Nov 16th.
Stew for dinner for the next three days, so that will be lovely and warming in our bellies.
The rescue helicopter was out around 7.30, but we don’t know if it was an exercise or a ‘shout’ as we are too far away from the beach to see. Hope all is well anyway. The water will be bitterly cold.
Halloween tonight though we doubt we will have any trick or treaters here. We didn’t last year, and this is really a retirement estate, so no young families. Some of the houses on the main roads have gone all out with pumpkins, creepy cobwebs, witches and broomsticks, and one has an invasion of spiders on their outside wall. I think it’s great for kids.
