Good afternoon all, I have had a very slow start to the day, playing a bit of catch up with odd jobs.
Closed

It is sunny but rather chilly here, not too bad when the wind is not blowing, but very bitter when it does. The cat seems to have adopted her now normal position asleep in her bed, she has been out a couple of times but came back in reasonably quickly. I have had two short walks this morning, just to get my circulation going properly. Now I am going to relax for a while, before I venture out again. I have been checking my circulation, by looking at the capillary refill in my fingers, and the colour of my hands. The colour is a bit red, so there is a good blood flow, and the capillaries refill after I squeeze a fingertip in less than two seconds so that is also good. At the moment the cold is not causing me any issues, but I need to make sure that I maintain a good circulation while it is cold. Luckily so far I have had no ill effects from this cold snap, and I hope it stays that way :-)

Has this cold weather caused any problems for you ?

Our cats are spending a lot more time indoors. You can always tell the warmest place in the house by where they are!

It snowed here overnight and today is really cold at the moment with no signs of a thaw as yet. Hopefully by Tuesday a warm front will give most of the country a double digit daytime temperature before cooling off again later in the week.
The biggest problem with the cold weather at the moment is that I'm forced to run my gas central heating more than I'd like to keep warm.

Just back from walking the dog and it's been snowing for an hour or so. Got my big coat out of the loft earlier so nice and snug.
Got no excuse for not exercising as have a small gym at home.
