The water container I bought in Nantwich has been put to good use & Mark has kept the water tank topped up meaning I was able to do some washing yesterday.
On Tuesday we ventured into Stafford by bus as we needed container for diesel plus other bits & bobs. It was bitterly cold & Mark's patience is in short supply on shopping trips ;) so we weren't any longer than necessary.
We walked through the shopping centre into a small indoor market & found a 20 Lt diesel container for £12.99, bargain! A warm up & lunch stop in Costa Coffee followed by a dash round Sainsbury's then back on the bus home.
Turners Garage is just across the bridge & their diesel is a reasonable 66.9p per Lt so with our new shiny container we are making regular trips to top up the tank.
I got some nuts for the birds & hung them in the tree opposite the kitchen window,
Sid likes to sit & watch them, just as well I think that he's not going outside !
A not very clear picture of the local "ice breaker", he has been past a few times, up to the service point & back - it's so cold though that it soon freezes up again.
No thaw yet, forecast for tonight is -18c, according to The Guardian, Russia is "hit by big freeze" with temps of -15c. So that makes it colder here then, brrrr......
A very merry Christmas to all of you out there,
stay warm & safe.
