" It's me, Storm Eva, I'm so co o o old, let me in at your wind o o ow oh ow"
She's trying her best to get in down the chimney too. She's a bit of a screaming banshee. She's lashing the windows with her wintry tears. I just had to google dictionary the word wintry because I thought it was right but then I tried wintery and Google said that both were fine. However, wintry is old English apparently so that's why I used it.
I'm just hoping we don't have the power cuts Storm Desmond brought! My heart goes to those in Cumbria just up the road from me, dealing with reflooding.
I made these yesterday! The gingerbread man was filled with chocolate fresh cream, had his features picked out with white chocolate and was delivered to my next door neighbour-but-one as a thank you for providing me with flasks of hot water during the power cut. The snowman just got a dusting of snow and will be scoffed today with frothy coffee!
Right I'm getting up. I think the HG might be taking Mr 18 to work as its so foul out there. Words cannot convey the viciousness of the wind and rain right now. I wish he didn't have to go. The apprentice wage of £3.30 an hour doesn't seem enough to make me want to send him out in this!
Miss 21 also has to go out in it for her hair doing! I'm thinking I'll advise her against having it styled after the cut!
Well, I should get going and started on the day. I'd like to wish you all a very peaceful heartwarming Yuletide. May your turkey be moist and your sprouts not soggy!
Lots of love from
