Welcome to my two new followers, dreamer and connie.
DB informed me this morning that according to Radio 4 weather forecast for next week, we are in for a Siberian chill down to as low as -15 plus snow! Whether that happens or not is yet to be discovered, best get inside things that you may need just in case, such as kindling, logs and coal. Always make sure you have emergency food rations in stock - things to make bread/scones or cake, hot drinks and dried or UHT milk. If you have a mini gas stove, make sure you have gas canisters for it. You never know but hopefully it won't happen.
It is currently 1:15 in the afternoon as I sit to write this, the wind is howling, rain has been beating down almost non-stop since around 7pm last night and the temperature is barely 3 Celsius!
Some of our £126 savings from the sealed pot have now been spent. We treated ourselves to a drink and pub lunch (just got back) and spent £15.99 on a frying/saute pan with lid (reduced from £25) from Mr. Sainsbury.
The rest is in the bank earmarked for Christmas presents, most of which have already been bought in cash and this will bring our money back up to normal.
DB has been into the freezing cold attic to fetch me some wool to have a go at knitting some fingerless gloves from Frugal Mummy's blog, although I think I will take longer than a couple of evenings! The wood stove was lit around 11 this morning and we are fed, watered and relaxed.
