See this everyone..it is a sign of things to come...an iced up windscreen on a car = WINTER..Brrrrrrrrrrr. Both of our cars had thick ice over them. It is 8:33a.m. right now and it is 2.3Degrees Celcius....enough to freeze oil!!
So with this first snap of chilly weather..has anyone got advise on how to beat the coming Winter months? The kids all woke up frozen and we had to thaw them out in front of the heater. The baby woke up and snuggled in between us at 5a.m...her frozen little butt certainly woke me up in a quick second. Looks like hot water bottles will be the way to go. C'mon Summer....hurry up and get here already!!!
In addition to this here post, a 3:40 p.m. addition, my son's just got home from school. They had an out of uniform day at school today. Don't, just don't, for one itty bitty second, think that it comes free. No sireee/maaam, nothin' is free in public education anymore! In fact, they had to fork out a dollar for the priveledge of wearing and possibly shabbying their casual clothes! Then, next week they have a BBQ fday at school. Price of a sausage in bread with a dab of sauce...$1:80. Inflation hell yes it is.....just 3 years ago a snag in bread was .80cents. It is a crime!! I may just go get them fish'n'greasies for lunch and take it on down to them. I shall think about this some more later on. Oh yeah, and a can of sugar filled coca cola costs $1.20, robbery I say.
Further news has just reached home with the 9yr old giving me a new note from school...snags in bread are now $2..yes $2 EACH seems like a crime to me.
