Its Gill thats waiting for a boiler.

We've had tiny snow today on and off but nothing like Florence. It waited till I went to corn the chickens and then it came down harder than it had all day.

Yes ,sorry I meant Gill!
Of course,always pours when I have fill the car with fuel,never fails.
Tesco came at 8 right in the middle of a blizzard.Poor driver he looked frozen and the rd was white.

Here's hoping the sun will come back tomorrow!

Thanks Florence, I'm having the gas metre put in on Friday then I need to find a gas safe engineer for the boiler. I had another company put the gas pipes in last week.
Shame I couldn't find one company to do all three jobs instead of three different people. Hopefully it won't be to long before we have at least hot running water.
What a luxury that'll be ;-)

We had some snow before but not much so OH was okay driving to work, he works nights so it can be a bit slippy in the mornings before the sun hits the roads. He said he saw the gritter out before so I think we're in for a chilly night.

I hope you have the sun tomorrow Florence. The poor delivery driver, I bet he was glad when his shift ended, so he could go home and be warm.

Loved the way you described the blizzard as looking like a pillow fight Island lol :-D :-D :-D :-D

Well thankfully or weather is now cooling down and we are going into our more normal Autumn weather pattern.

Interestingly, there are two potential cyclones off the North-West coast which could merge to make one super cyclone :-0

Hopefully they will just become neighbours and not friends with benefits :-D

Good morning Chit Chatters. :-)

Lovely bright and sunny morning here. Bit chilly though.

Not so clever when I put the bins out at 6am this morning. Mine was the only light on in the street. Maybe because so many are working from home, they do not need to be up so early.

Wrap up well, keep warm.


ZZzzz Report 7 Apr 2021 08:37

Morning all, I used to be up at silly o'clock before I retired and not many others would be up at that time, 5:30 ish.
Weather is bright but minus 1 degree so I won't be going anywhere just yet.


MotownGal Report 7 Apr 2021 08:55

Zzzzzz I still wake up at silly-o-clock!

Years of getting up at 5.30, and tip-toeing around so I didnt wake anyone else.

I was taking the dog out for a pee at 6am.

Only me and the other daft dog walkers around at that time. :-D ;-)


AnninGlos Report 7 Apr 2021 09:02

Good morning all, a sprinkle of snow overnight but just frozen on roofs and tops of cars now and that is melting, 0 degree here at the moment

Since being on my own I wake up at all odd very early hours. It is a good nights sleep for me if I wake up at 0600.

I don't think I will be going far either today. might have to resort to the dreaded HW.


LaGooner Report 7 Apr 2021 09:18

Morning all, I have just put the bins out and it's a bit chilly out there. I am now thawing out with a hot coffee :-D

Morning all.

I wake early, no matter what time I go to sleep.
It comes from getting up with OH, when he used to commute to London.
I don't mind that at this time of the year though. It seems to be a bonus part of the day, when most people are still asleep.

I often make use of our cheaper overnight rate of electricity and put a wash load in the machine.


ZZzzz Report 7 Apr 2021 09:41

Oh no not the dreaded HW, have a cup of tea or coffee til the feeling passes :-D


LaGooner Report 7 Apr 2021 09:42

HW :-0 :-0 :-0 :-0 I shall have to sit down at the very thought of it :-D :-D

Good morning all

A light snow covering overnight,it's a cold and frosty morning I've been and deiced the bird baths and pleased to be inside with a hot drink to warm me up. Wrap up warm if you're going out and stay safe.
