Default Wish is was in NZ

There are 2 old age pensioners here in the UK who are stranded in their house snowbound, running out of food, talk of gas & electricity being switched off and you lot are sweating like pigs in NZ and could not care less. Holidays my a..e.

LOL...sweating like pigs is a harsh analogy

Brrrrrrrr is mighty cold ! Just waiting for our big dump of predicted snow kids so excited and most importantly wanting to know if school will shut

Love the open fire, hot chocolate and snuggling under blankets watching T.V with the kids

Good luck Margaret you are not too cold

Caught the tail end of news report re shops selling out of cat litter.....thought it was because cats are reluctant to go out in snow to do what they do naturally in gardens (tho our old cat used to do it on the lawn....did hate snow tho) but no....its not cat owners buying up the cat litter!! the lovely Angela (AngelaandJim) has just told me that cat litter is being used on footpaths and pavements instead of grit.....just hope somebody has told the cats!!

we too are snowed in today, so we all having a day of quality time (that will be a laugh ) our hill is so dangerous and the bottom is a main road, so if we go down it we may either crash into a car or wont be able to get back up the hill x x x

It's another snow day in Tonbridge - schools closed (including mine yay!!!!), trains not running, Gatwick still closed and people panic buying cos it's going to be like this until Sunday at least!
Just back from week in France with family and friends (they all ski but my mate and I do not) and funnily enough, they don't get taken by surprise when it snows.....in winter.....

I found out today that the 92 year old lady that lives next door to us has just eaten her cornflakes this morning with water!!! The day before we had asked if she wanted anything and she said "NO" - but could we get her some milk next Saturday - we have got her some milk now and it is only Wednesday!!! Keep your eye on your elderly neighbours.
