Frosty frosty!

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.

About pensitivity101

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.
