I got snow, a bit more than a sprinkle. enough to make all grass and paths white. It meant my Age UK fortnightly shopping trip got cancelled.
 The side roads around town were ice rinks, and the minibus wouldn't have been able to pick everyone up in a safe and timely manner. 
Luckily, I didn't need anything, as such, I got my flour and yeast out to bake bread, and all was well.
The fresh bread was gorgeous... all gone in 24 hours.
 I'm lazy. I use a food processor to knead the dough, it's not much effort at all.
 I discovered a while back that if you add 8g of salt (a lot, I know) and a generous tablespoonful of olive oil (15 ml) for 500g of flour it all tastes so much better.

One weeks PIP money if your on standard daily living or enhanced mobility, cheapest one I saw on a quick look was 32 via Ebay.  any way your money wont do you any good if you get hypothermia and become one of the government's stats.  please look after yourself

I don't get pip (never applied) but yeah I see your point.  ;)

You might be stupid but at least you are honest!  You put your hands on the heated blanket and tuck your arms inside and you will be roasty toasty.  Now go out to Boots or Argos and get one.  Quick, before it gets any colder.

I think I will order one and get it delivered as it seems to be getting colder, my room temp this moment is 6.6c
(I'm going to get in bed after writing this as I'll be warm, yes I'm lazy but I'm warm and lazy! haha)

Edit: ouch they are costly aren't they?  50 crikey

To all the people who commented on this post

I enjoyed my time at North Moor but in November 2017 I fell down stairs + broke my wrist so I was sent to a house with a lift + it feel's like a lot of stress/tension has gone it is in a quite village called Kippax on the southern outskirt's of Leeds, it is a big old house + the thing I like best is that I can easily move from room to room in my wheelchair. I have a large bedroom with a rustic scene from the bedroom window
