Well, always one to talk (boast) to soon, what should happen Wednesday night? The Heavens opened and covered Kent in snow. At one point over the weekend both bridges onto Sheppey were closed so we were well and truly cut off. People predictably stripped the shop shelves of all the basics and it was almost comical to watch people trudging past the window with bags and bags of bread. What is it with snow and bread? Our local newsagent resorted to hiding basics out the back and offering to sell one loaf at a time to his regulars. Which Craig is. *smug grin* I didn't leave the house for 4 days and got VERY creative in my cooking by using up cupboard and freezer stock. This did however result in what Craig called my best stew EVER! So we'll be doing that again.
This was the view from my front door... the furthest I was prepared to venture. They are quite blurry because it was still snowing when I took them.
Our little local library - yep - sorry Vivienne, the library is literally opposite our house...
Right next to the free residents carpark.Which is right next to the huge green and little park... I really shouldn't moan about not having a garden should I? But come the spring and summer I will be again.
It's all started melting today and the schools re-opened. Trains resumed service and the shops restocked their shelves. Normality is restored...
Until the next flurry.
Hope you've all stayed warm and safe wherever you are. Thank you for stopping by!
