If you want to get ahead ...

Get a hat!


It gets pretty busy at the Christmas markets, and it seems that people who travel in larger groups have found cute ways of finding each other in the crowds!  I particularly like the Father Christmas going down the chimney hats.
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?' ....

We finally had some snow this afternoon and very pretty it looked too - until the rain came on and most of it has gone again now.

Well...usually we're moaning about nothing much when it comes to the weather....a great British habit....but when the snow actually comes over my wellie boots....I feel justified in moaning!!!!

Cold here, but no snow right now. Which is fine by me. I like snow on Christmas week. The rest of the year, I'd rather not. What is the weather "usually" like in London from January - April?

COLD! and I am not a cold lover, I'm a 98 degree,high humidity Southern (US)lover. We are supposed to get snow tmw afternoon but it shouldn't stick. The next week is supposed to be low to mid 40s which bums me out because some flower pot orders to fill for Christmas and it needs to be 60 outside for me to do the initial painting @@ The hats are awesome!

You folks have really been hit hard with the snow. I can see how the novelty would wear off very quickly!!!

It's cold here in Arizona - by my standards - you need a sweater when you go outside. :o} No snow for us, thank goodness.

Stay warm, Debs, and have a lovely weekend. I hope you'll find some time to at least crop on your own, though I know it won't be the same. xo
