    Been under the weather a bit today

    Taking care of the lad who has full blown flu and been off school two days.

    Further complaints about the manner my wife parks her car - she completely blocks the pavement. I said I'd pass them on - for what good that will do as she doesn't listen to me.

    Now lad playing a storm on his keyboard. He's not bad...

    Replaced the laptop display today. Found a compatible display - but it cost £60!!

    Client rings up and offers six month contract. I say 'yes'

    Time for a cuppa. it ain't been that bad a day.

    Bus not on time at 1 minute late (Shock! Horror! This Is Switzerland!)

    Sunshine. Coffee, tea and beer consumed at a pavement cafe, albeit with ski jacket firmly zipped up.

    Plan B going according to plan to the point I am looking at new working premises.

    With the odd hiccup, of course, like people not available to take delivery at the appointed time.

    Too many Christmas parties going on at the moment. Bah Humbug!

    P.S. Delivery van appears to run on fresh air though. Tried filling it up today and it took very little outlay.

    Day after I buy window scraper - I don't need it.

    Walked lad to school very slippery - he was doing Gangnam style on the ice.

    On way back - nearly a collision between motorcycle and car.

    Made way to office

    Angry caller rang said she had appointment but the office was closed...oh yes I thought.

    Bill from leasing company - even though the lease has expired. Bastards!

    Time for a cup of coffee to warm my hands.

    My method involves 2 litres of warm water from the hot tap (not boiling water from the kettle).

    Voila!

    Melted frost, warmed windscreen that won't mist up on the inside & about 10 times quicker to do.

    Ain't lost a windscreen yet, but I suppose there's always a first time.
    Its a habit from Canada. Warm water will quickly freeze in -35C you see.

    Got tired of scraping the windows with my dishcloth. Bought a scraper from Lidl for £1.50 and 5L bottle of windscreen wash for £6.

    Still freezing my ass of in the office. Its gonna be a looong cold miserable time in here I reckon. March can't come soon enough.

    Glorious sunshine all day yesterday.

    Went for a walk and took a bunch of photos at lunchtime.

    The snow decked landscape is very pretty in sunshine.

    Frigging cold last night.

    Back to grey today.

    Snow decked landscape has disappeared behind wall of fog.

    Ice covered car windows - No scraper. had to use dishcloth.

    Office is barely heated - my hands are like ice and I can see my own breath.

    Can't put up with this all day.
