Baby, It's cold outside.

Good morning to all, well the snow has really fallen overnight and there are no cars attempting our road as yet. I live on the top of a hill and as soon as there is any snow the buses divert and don't attempt their usual route. Let's see, shall I go out and build a snowman or go into the craft room.......
snowman or craftroom....... yeah right... I'll get a coffee before I climb the stairs!!!!
. Brrr it's mighty cold though and just when I thought my mis-haps were behind me, the flaming boiler broke AGAIN at work leaving me with no hot water and no heating.
There I was boiling the kettle and using a jug to wash clients hair. It's a good job for me my customers are more like friends and could see the funny side of things.
One of my clients organised hot drinks while another decided to get a workout going on, a bit of running on the spot and a few star jumps, OMG, how funny was that, and they paid me too!!!!
Someone even suggested, 'same time next week' ha ha, now there's an idea.
I managed to have it repaired by 7:30pm, didn't fancy having burst pipes as well.
Well it's time for a new challenge over at Songbird. The theme for the next two weeks is
