The snow is here and shows no sign of leaving.
FL managed to get my car out to the main road for me yesterday morning and by the time I reached town, the streets were clear and I felt like a real bumpkin in my wellies and heavy coat. However, when I drove home at 5, I was stranded at the foot of the hill. My winter tyres were still in the boot of my car, rather than on the wheels, so of no use whatsoever!
It is Dexy day and there was no way I wanted to be a passenger in his car driving through the dark in icy conditions.
So I am working from home. FL has taken my car to have its tyres changed while the daylight holds and now that the snow-plough has been through. Tomorrow we perform another Risk Assessment. One day at a time. I may have to take a Knitting Day - what a pity that isn't an official category of Special Leave!
