Friendship Warms The Heart On A Day Of Bitter Cold


Yes, another award arrived today! I am honoured to receive the Your Blog Is Fabulous Award from Priscilla at Priscilla's Cottage ~ Thank You Priscilla. Your friendship means a lot to me and I am glad to have met you in blogland.

This news was just what I needed on a day of extreme cold weather here. Now I don't want to turn this into a weather blog, but I thought you might be interested to know that when I came home from work (by train) this morning; the temperature was -21 C and the wind chill -30 C. I felt half frozen by the time I had walked to and from the station and there were warnings that exposed skin would freeze in 30 minutes. You certainly couldn't see much more of me than my eyes!

For this award, I have to list five addictions, so here goes:

Tea ~ which has to be at the top of my list. I can't get through the day (or night, when I'm working) without a cup of tea. My favourite has to be Taylor's English Breakfast Tea, but it can be difficult to obtain here at times, so I have to make do with something else much of the time.

Chocolate ~ need I say more?

The Archers ~ I never used to listen before I had access to internet radio, but now I hate to miss my Sunday omnibus edition on Radio 4. I just discovered when pasting this link that there is a website for Archers addicts!

Warmth ~ does this count? I hate to be cold and I have even been known to take a sweater with me when going out in the height of summer.

Reading ~ I can't imagine life without a good book.

I believe that I only have to tag one person for this award, so I am nominating Tracy at Pink Purl. I always enjoy a visit to Tracy's blog as it is so warm and welcoming.
