Brrr going back to the wintry picture this week. We haven't had snow here in London but it has been very cold with a lot of frost.
It's Friday so time to join up with Susanne and others as we look back on the week and count our blessings. Join in here.
1) Firstly as it's been so cold I'm thankful that we can keep our heating on without worrying about whether we can afford to. Energy prices are still very high despite a lot of Government assistance. We did dig out the hot water bottles this week though and I need to check if we still have an electric blanket - not sure if that made the move here or not!
2) A trip out with the Knit and Natter group. We went to a Wool Show in nearby Waltham Abbey and then on to a pub for a Sunday roast dinner. I had a really nice time. There were only 6 of us so it was easy to keep track of conversations around the dinner table - we were lucky enough to have a round table which I think works better for conversation with a group of people.
3) Living so close to countryside. Despite the cold weather I've been out for a walk a couple of times this week and, although we're in London we have woodlands on our doorstep and getting out for a walk really lifts the spirit.
4) Online grocery shopping. Another regular thing on my list here but it does make our lives easier. In fact online shopping in general. I bought a lovely kit to knit a pig for Ella at the knitting show but found I needed more needles so I've ordered them online. Hopefully they will come soon as I'm keen to get started on it.
Although it's knitted on quite small needles so I think it's going to take some concentration.
