White Out

Last night was very cold outside.  Not cold on the boat, but I wished that we had the luxury of an electric blanket.  And then I remembered this:

Oh the joy!  I had forgotten how something so simple can make such a difference.  I can honestly say that even George Clooney could not have made being in bed so worthwhile!

This morning I woke up early, Pete made me three cups of tea and then scrambled egg on toast, whilst I stayed in bed.  It was so warm and cosy, but I eventually decided to poke my head out of the hatch and this is what I saw :

Thick snow!  So, I went back to bed and stayed there, thanking my lucky stars that I have the next two days off work.  Take care in the snow and drive very carefully if you have to go out.

Aren't hot water bottles wonderful things Fran! I LOVE MINE!

Lucky you being spoilt by Pete (who needs G.C.)?

Wish I had 2 days off school too.
Instead we have exams and parents evenings! LOL!

Snuggle up and stay warm Fran!

Enjoy your snow day! Am not sure about you but I'd be dipping in a bit of dark rum into my teas to keep warm ;)

Hot water bottles rule!! You've got plenty of that white stuff there, I see. We have too. I hate it with a passion and the floor of the barge just breathes cold air...we are surrounded by ice too. Keep safe and warm Fran.

Now that's a true white out. We had one snow storm last month, but now it is all rain. Strange winter. It was supposed to have been colder and whiter. - Margy

SFT - I really did choose the right two days to have leave. I really hate driving in the snow xxx
Tanya - Rum sounds a really good idea and as I live on the water, I think I am entitled to a rum ration!
Val - you keep warm too and snuggle down as best you can.
Margy - you are supposed to have the snow, not us!!!!

I had to laugh at your George Clooney comment :)

It's positively frigid in Denmark and I feel the same way about my microwaveable rice bag.
