A cold one

I have loved looking, with just a hint of jealousy, at all the snowy photos on your blogs this weekend. Much to the jammers disappointment we've not had any of the white stuff down here, but it has been mighty cold. All of a sudden I am feeling the benefits of double glazing! We've never had it before and never wanted it, however there is something to be said for popping the heating on and the house warming up. Last winter we had ice on the inside of the windows! This year it's just the tap that's turned icy.
So we've warmed up with good old comfort food. Homemade curries and then pasties for lunch. I do love a good pasty and so do the little jammers. Cheese and mushroom for me and cheese and veg for them.
just in case that sounded a bit healthy there's been plenty of sugary comfort going on too...
 Waitrose do amazing vegetarian fruit jelly sweets.
And my corner shop sell trays of mis shapen tiffin. You have to get there when they arrive as it's gone in a flash. This weekend we were lucky, depending on how you look at it!
Even my shop is a bit warmer than usual. We had heating installed a couple of weeks ago and just in time too. I took a couple of refurbished cots in this weekend and had a furniture reshuffle.
 Both my little jammers slept in a cot similar to this French one when they were babies and toddlers. It's in the attic now as I couldn't bear to part with it!
For those of you that asked after my COD post I'm at The De Danann Antique and Vintage Centre, Dorchester, DT1 1NF
Do pop in if you're local.
Keep warm
