So Much Snow, Cold Weather & Sheep In The Bedroom

By Posted on 12 Comments 2 min read


We’ve had so much snow and cold weather this winter, I sometimes think we’ve moved to the Arctic. Seriously though, me and 92% of the UK population are getting more than fed up with these incessant, cold temperatures.

Trapped Visitors

We’ve had visitors stay overnight and on separate occasions we have had to dig their car out of the white stuff. One weekend, our guests ending staying an extra day, but that’s because they had a BMW. You’ll never get very far in the snow with a BMW.

I Can’t Feel My Toes Or Fingers

My feet and fingers have been so cold for so long now that I’ve gone past caring. It’s not just me either. Everyone we meet out and about are saying the same thing. ‘We’re fedup…..’, ‘We can’t feel our feet or fingers’ and ‘When is it going to warm up?’ I even met a lady that used to be an Eskimo and she was complaining about the cold and damp!

Sheep In The Bedroom

You know it’s cold when you have to take food from the freezer and leave it on the kitchen
table to stop it thawing!! March 1st, 2018 was the coldest night since records began here in the UK. It was so cold we herded a field of sheep into the bedroom to generate some warmth. It worked, but the smell….!

As we are the newcomers to our village, the natives are blaming us for bringing the bad weather. We get people shouting at us from the other side of the street, ‘Oy, it’s all your bloody fault… we’ve never had weather like this in all the time we’ve lived here.’ We say sorry, as if it really is our fault, but I think
this global warming argument may have something to do with it.

All Day Sunshine

We had one day last week where the sun was shining all day. Wall to wall blue skies and sunshine. It was still bitter cold, but the sight of the sun and knowing it hadn’t gone forever was genuinely warming, pardon the pun. I recall winters where snow fell much heavier than we have had it this year. It’s just that the cold seems to have remained for much much longer this season. Officially, it’s now Spring time and we’ve just had another dousing of snow. Thankfully, nothing like a few weeks ago.

Here’s to a gloriously long warm summer and may the sun follow you wherever you go.

I'd love to hear from you

      From this coming weekend I hope,Susie, but the weather forecasting over the past few months hasn’t been very accurate.

    We keep having teases – days that feel like actual spring – and then another dump of snow. It’ll be mild and the snow recedes but it’s never really left. I still have my winter tires on.
