Good Old Fashioned Snow

The snow has sent me back a few decades.
Apart from lighting real fires with coal and having porridge/porage for breakfast every morning, I got my pensioner bus pass out and went on the bus to the shops with a shopping bag. Mind you, so did everyone else. The buses were full and only a bit late and everyone was chatting away. It was easier than digging the car out and de-frosting all the important bits and the sun was shining brightly and the snow was only ankle deep.
I've also put on a vest under my top and a hand-knitted jumper over it so that the central heating can be left on 21 degrees most of the time. I work in Celsius because of all the years I spent in Oz so 21C would be 70F.
The bedroom has been shifted up to the top floor so that work can commence soon on the new bathroom. I anticipate a suitable quote for the work this weekend. Will I ever finish? I'm now dreaming of a new kitchen and I badly need a loft ladder to easily access all the storage space in the roof and then......
Cheers Gillian

Wow, your remodeling planning is stuck in the overdrive mode. Maybe you should start a new knitting project, it's cheaper and you can bury it in a basket until it's finished! Thus, says the woman who is perpetually unsatisfied with the state of her own home! Happy Friday, keep warm.

You have always been a busy bee doing something wonderful to your home. Well at least if you dont like the snow you can come to Oz for a visit, lol! I hope that you dont get too cold over there, you might have to do some more knitting!

It's the time of year for home-making. I find myself doing a lot of cooking - helps to keep warm. I'm also indulging in clear-outs and throwing away stuff in anticipation of finding another house some time this year.

I loved your pies, plates and pussy postings earlier - was too lazy to comment at the time. Mostly I am in hibernation mode.
