A cold Halloween

Well, I've decided to leave my broomstick at the back door tonight, it's just way too cold and windy to be out flying around on a night like this! As my nana would say "that wind would take the nose off you"!! Seriously though, it is sooooo cold outside, and because it's so blinking windy I don't think we're going to be able to light the fire :o( Last week I lit it when it was windy and the whole house filled up with smoke, we really must get an anti down draft thingy fitted to the chimney pot! There's a story to that actually, when we first got the chimney opened up and swept last year the chimney sweep told me we would need what I thought he said to be an "anti-dandruff" thingy, I thought he meant that the soot would start falling in or something, what a wally! Yet another blond moment to add to the collection! Anyway, seeing as it's Halloween and all that, we thought we'd put a little pumpkin in the window to scare off all the ghosts and ghouls, not sure if we'll get any trick or treaters this evening or not - we'll see!

Hi, Glad you found the blog at last, you'll be able to see all that's going on up here now! It's soooo cold, not got the thermals on yet, but had a big woolly jumper on all week! Happy Halloween too, we didn't have any trick or treaters funily enough, think it's maybe a bit too dark out here for them!!! Have been busy making pot pourri tonight so I stink of oranges and cloves!
Speak to you soon,

Love, L x
