The cheapest solution is to wait it out until Blighty gets back up to above freezing temperatures, and it thaws out....however I'm waiting for the certified professional to come out while I'm sat huddled in the kitchen, AGA plates up, with my gilet on! I've also loved my new Ugg Boots since the 'Beast from the East' visited. Cosy enough not to have to faff with socks and sturdy enough to negotiate the frozen stuff underfoot.
So todays outfit builder shows both my cold weather hero items as well as a Weekday 'It's not enough' sweatshirt; after some people on the South Coast lamented that our dusting of snow was a bit feeble and not enough to make even a snowball!
The children and I however have had great fun courtesy of 'the One Show' after seeing a lady in Siberia throwing a bottle of boiling water up in the air to make snowflakes. Obviously I recommend adult supervision and some ski gloves, but definitely a great practical science experiment to try in these freezing conditions! I'm assuming they don't have condensate pipes in Siberia, where temperatures can reach -60!!
I'm still waiting for the boiler man to come so until then keep warm, click on the links to shop and thanks for stopping by.
