Looking on the bright side…everywhere looks beautiful covered over with glistening gleaming snow – even our scaffolding around the roof took on an elegant shape when all the poles and planks were coated in snow. Now the scaffolding has been taken down , the snow filled skip has been removed and we should be back to normal….but we hadn’t anticipated so much snow and ice!! We’ve had frozen pipes, ice covered roads and very expensive oil delivered for our tank. Good job we’ve a 4×4 or else we wouldn’t be able to drive down to the A40 and go to our wonderful local store to get essentials. No papers though…papers haven’t been delivered to this area at all as the delivery lorries can’t get through! All this doesn’t mean to say that we are staying at home and struggling…no – we’ve been out and about enjoying long walks up the local roads and highways and down to Aber Marlais estate.
My Christmas shopping has been put on hold until we can find out what the weather has in store. Our family should be returning home for the holiday but travelling might be tricky so we’ll have to wait and see.
Best wishes to you all for a good week of planning, shopping and preparing…it’s such an exciting time of the year…enjoy it all…even the snow!
