  1. I take it you aren’t moving now? In December it sounded like moving was a real possibility. I’m glad someone likes January. Once the last of the festive tinsel has been swept away, I want nothing more but to hibernate until April.

  2. You’re the first person I’ve ever heard say that about snow. I live in dread of icy streets and horrible commutes whereas everyone else in the entire world seems to suddenly be ridiculously happy. It’s as if they all attended a class when they were young teaching them how not to fall on their faces which I missed. I wish you luck also with the painting I just know 2015 I’d going to be a magical year.

    1. I’m the same as you. Even in my 20s I would shuffle about like an old lady if there was even a trace of ice or snow. I try to will myself to walk normally but I just can’t because of my fear of falling and breaking my leg.
      And it terrifies me to drive in the snow.
      I’ve lived my whole life in snowy places so it’s not like I’m a recent arrival to such conditions.
      I have a great fear of falling and hurting myself and lying there for hours till someone finds me frozen.

  3. Oh dear, you wouldn’t want to be here in Massachusetts. We just got walloped with over 2 feet of snow. I hate the stuff. I plan on not stepping outside for a week.
    I can’t imagine getting milk at the post office. Here they are government owned and soley for the purpose of mailing things, buying stamps, and getting your passport. Do post offices in Britain also act as grocery stores?

    1. Hi Dawn, all the main Post Offices in towns and cities are for stamps, passports etc, but sub-post offices in villages and on the outskirts of towns sell all sorts of things and are privately owned, so the post office part is a sort of franchise I guess.

      1. I see. We have sort of the opposite in my town. There’s a convenience store that has postal services in one section. It’s manned by store employees not official postal workers but I guess they have a contract with the government to be a satellite post office.
        This one in my town is the only one I know about so I have no idea if this is a common thing or not.
        So instead of going to the post office for milk, we go to the store to mail a certified letter for instance or rent a postal box, buy stamps, mail stuff.

  4. Hi Alison, there is nothing so therapeutic as clearing, cleaning and painting is there? I’m so happy that you feel in a place to do it. We are in the process of clearing out and tidying up our little loft and I feel as if a weight is being removed from the top of my head.

  5. If I didn’t know better (and I don’t) I’d say you gotta lil crush going on these days. If it’s true, aint love grand?
