Brrr!!! It's Freezing

As I suggested to John after our wet and cool summer, we are having a very cold winter. It has been around 0c for ages and is dropping to as low as -12c at night. I think the cold will last a long time yet, even if this goes it will come back before we see Spring.

I was finally able to go back to my normal pool today. They have been closed nigh on 5 weeks and had a new heating system put in at a cost of £100,000. Needles to say it has broken down. It was partially fixed yesterday so they said we could swim today. Well I went and the pool was only 26c which is cool to say the least. I have no idea why, but for me, even though I swam vigorously, I did not warm up but got colder. I only did half a mile and that was it, I was losing the ability to move. Now at home in my heated house I am still cold and typing this feels very odd as my hands are frozen along with my legs despite my layers and warmth. I have no idea why I get so cold. Perhaps its the drugs I take, maybe the one for blood pressure? The Atenolol which is a beta blocker? The aspirin? I don't know. I just know I am bloody cold and will go back to bed shortly.

The puppies and Shameless are doing very well at 9 days. Shameless is being a royal pain about eating. Refusing food and insisting on me trying to find somethig she will eat. No more. Today is the day I quit that. She isn't sick and she will eat eventually.

Have almost finished a new pair of socks in Regia Kaffe Fasset colour design line. Juts plain st st.

It amazes me how anyone can justify the bombing of children. It amazes me that anyone would believe that this will end the hatred. It amazes me how people take sides and don't see both sides are as wicked as each other. Nothing will change until they accept they are the same.
