Friday! Refuse collection day. Once a fortnight we put out the recycling bins as well as the usual household bin. A bit trickier today as it was a hard frost last night -6C.
Places further inland had it much colder...Woodford was down to -14C.
"There is a risk of severe weather affecting parts of England and Wales."
I put salt on the back-doorstep last night so it was a bit safer this morning.
OH is a 'star' in this weather...protective in the nicest way...letting me stay toasty warm indoors whilst he did the bins for us and our neighbours.
M next door is going to have new double-glazing fitted. When she bought her place, she was told all windows needed replacing so 2-years later having saved up she's booked a local firm to do the 'necessary'. Hope the weather improves and they doo a good job for her. Doubtless OH will be invited to supervise.
On the opposite side H is in residence, and he loves having a wood fire burning brightly. He's been burning some of the Yew OH felled.
