At last, we’ve had a really cold day with frozen bird baths, frosted windscreens, Jack Frost patterned windows and the most amazing views across to the totally snow capped Carmarthen Fans. It is what winter is all about and I’ve missed in this mild and wet winter not having to get dressed up in warm cosy clothing so today it was full scarf, gloves, toasty thick jumper and thermal vest on day!
Suitably attired we drove to Llandovery for a walk round. We visited a local charity shop and picked up some toys in readiness for the arrival of our two grand children who are coming to stay shortly.
Such splendid bargains!
On our return I lit the fire so Holly and Rufus could settle down for their afternoon nap!
I made a coffee and sat down next to the cats with the morning paper where I was pleased to read that house plants are now back in fashion and how helpful they are to our living environment (what a surprise!) In our house they have never been out of fashion and most windowsills and shelves have a plant pot or two balanced precariously on them!
Later the car had a wash down with the by now unfrozen hosepipe and vision through the windscreen will once again be easier now the mud and gunge have been cleaned off!
A squelchy walk to the veggie patch resulted in some fresh veg for dinner. I’m particularly looking forward to the kale and purple sprouting broccoli tonight! Delicious!
