Cold weather update....

The river's frozen solid, my central heating has gained a mind of its own and decided to come on, even though it should be swtiched off, what more? Yesterday the school children at Slade primary school had to use a different entrance because, at the usual one, the gates had welded together due to the frost! This morning a neighbour's car wouldn't move from the middle of the road as it seemed that his hand break had frozen. It makes you wonder how on earth they cope in Scandinavia, Alaska and Siberia doesn't it....

They probably grow big beards and build lovely log cabins made for the purpose. They also probably wear hats with racoons all over it, like Davy Crockett. But, we have lots of cats here in Tonbridge, so they could be put to good use, they're always scoffing the native birds. Oops, that'll get Animal Aid going .

Does annoy me when you see all kinds of crap having been lobbed into the river to try to break the ice.

Annoys me too; pity these idiots don't throw themselves in and do us all a favour!
