I know here in Cardiff it is no where near as cold as Vienna which is 2 degrees (today it is warmer in Voronzeh than Vienna Anastasia at 3 degrees)but it certainly feels like it(.I wish it was as warm as Panama City in Florida which is 21 degrees or Damascus in Syria which is 18 degrees today.My skin would burn in that kind of heat!
This morning I am dressed like Whoopie Goldberg in Jumpin Jack Flash when her central heating isn't working. I am wearing socks, leg warmers,tracksuit bottoms, t shirt, my huge beige jumper(which is now 13 years old and has been worn every winter and by everybody) and my mothers large polar bear dressing gown. I am keeping the heating on during the day at the moment because Beauty is not well with a really bad cold and so she is home from school, my bill will be sky high in January as usually when I am home on my own in the day it is only on for short bursts. It must be really awful for older people and people on very limited incomes ,especially with the financial situation.

We've come into a few stiff fuel bills ourselves but having the kids cold is just not an option. Hope Beauty is feeling better soon.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
