It was blowing a gale force wind on Sunday which in turn made it feel freezing cold outside. However that didn't seem to stop the snowmobilers and there seemed to be plenty of them out and about on the trails. Its not something I have ever done is snowmobile, as I am not big on outdoor activities when its minus 100 outside!!!
I was talking to my mother on Sunday and she was telling me all about the going's on in Britain with the rotten weather they have been having. It seems to me a lot of problems stem from the "Health and Safety" issues, maybe someone from Britain could explain it better than me. What we both were saying that people have gone soft. My mother was telling me when she was born, she was born at home and her god mother made my mother her first snowman, out of the snow that has blown in through the crack in the bottom of the window panes the day she was born. Yes it was a minature snowman, but the windows were that drafty and old. No one had central heating like they do now, and the year she was born was a bitter, bitter cold winter.
We lived in the country and very rarely were the schools closed. My mother was saying the city schools are closed, as some teachers can't get to work.......so why close the school, get teachers to take extra pupils in their class. Over here if its too cold to let the kids out at recess/playtime, they have indoor recess, where the teachers do something fun with the kids. Things are a changing as they say and I don't think for the better do you?
On a more positive note when we were out on Saturday I picked up a couple packet of seeds. A packet of cress, as I love egg and cress sandwich. Over here parsley is the garnish of choice, but quite often in Britain its cress (please correct me if I'm wrong.) So I have a craving for an egg and cress sandwich, so plan on growing some.
I also picked up a package of heirloom sweet peas.
Now granted our risk of not having frost will not happen until after May 24th, I can dream what my garden will look like and there is nothing more lovely than a bunch of sweet peas.
Did you remember to put your money in your pot for the daily savings club?
Today's money saving tip:
Turn off the television. One big way to save money is to watch less television. There are a lot of financial benefits to this: less exposure to guilt-inducing ads, more time to focus on other things in life, less electrical use, and so on. It’s great to unwind in the evening, but seek another hobby to do that.
I want to make some changes to my blog, is there anything that you would like to see more of? Or anything that you want to see less of? Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated........
