Get a hat!
So, tonight is the Christmas 'Do' at work. We are going to the members cocktail bar of a local restaurant for a hot buffet meal and a 70s disco. It should be fun and I look forward to trying a few new cocktails! Thankfully it's Friday night so no school tomorrow. The Christmas crop I was supposed to be going to tomorrow has had to be cancelled :-( the weather in that area has been awful which is such a shame.
However, the weather up in Sheffield is even worse than here. My son just rang and said that the snow is up to the top of the tyres on his car! They walked to uni yesterday and by the time they came home their jeans were wet up to their knees - he says he has never seen snow like it. It was pretty to start with but after a few days the novelty wears off. My daughter stayed overnight at a friend's house on Wednesday and it snowed so much in the night that although the main roads were gritted and ok to drive on, she couldn't get off the drive to get onto the road, it took 3 guys to push her onto the road. And she only has a little Mini!
Still, there is nothing us Brits like more than a good old moan about the weather - too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry .... always a good conversation starter 'So, what is the weather like where you live?' ....
