late shift

As if it wasn't bad enough that I've been lumbered with the position of chauffeur for the little one after scouts on a Friday night....I now appear to be a taxi service for the big one's social life - which this month involves a lot of parties. I did well tonight, got away with just the drop off. Her friend's mum gets the unenviable task of collecting them later.
My turn next week. Oh yay!

oh snow

It snowed last night. Not much. About 5cm. With no more forecast for today. But did that stop BloodyAlbertFromNextDoor from shovelling his drive? LOUDLY? On a Sunday morning? At 7.40am? No. It did not. 
Thanks for the wake up call Albert. Much appreciated.

FYI it's all melted now. So that was a waste of bloody time. Again.

hat weather

I look crap in a hat. My head is too small I think. Or something. Cos they really don't suit me. But I didn't care today. It was freezing. And anyway, the rest of my outfit left something to be desired. This cold weather is doing nothing for my fashion credentials.

cloud coverage

It's the clouds. That's what make it worse. The sodding clouds. They make everything darker. If it was cold with a bit of blue sky it wouldn't be as bad. But the flipping clouds keep hanging about. Mostly chucking out rain.

On a positive note I saw something amusing tonight. A lady jogging. Wearing a head torch! Ha ha! Just ridiculous.

getting on my nerves this January:

1. It's dark. ALWAYS.
2. Everyone twitting on about diets and healthy eating.
3. It's about as far as you can possibly get from the summer holidays.
4. Everyone twitting on about gym membership.
5. It's dark. And cold. And wet.
6. Those cheery souls who post a picture of a flamingo with the caption "Ooh it's cold and dark so here's a picture of a flamingo to cheer you up!" Really?
7. TV and radio people talking about the Nutribullet as if it's just been invented.
8. It's dark. And grey.
9. The amount of joggers on the streets when I venture out. Even though it's DARK.
10. It's dark. STILL.
