    Weather is predicted to be much the same as yesterday.

    Still waiting on sunrise but skies are partly cloudy at the moment and temps are around -6°c

    Gone very cold. We are away overnight in the camper tonight and it is forecast to be in minus figures from 1900 tonight going down to -3 and then sleet/snow tomorrow. We will find out how good its heater is!

    No. We are going to visit Chatsworth house. It has a campsite too, so thought we’d book a table in one of the walkable pubs and spend the night in the van.

    Sunny but very cold in the NW wind. A bit of a shock after that spell of mild weather.

    The thing I love about mastiffs is the way they start digesting you with their saliva long before they get around to ripping your throat out. :D

    A friend had one called Boris. He was a lovely dog, but the side of her car was streaked with slobber as he always had his head out of the window.

    Sounds like my car when I take the wife on our European road trips.

    The first time I borrowed the Subaru the owner's wife told me not to bother cleaning it before giving it back. When they saw Dexter's slobber down the back seat they let me clean it the next time. The side windows in the boot of my car seem to get the worst of it as he shouts at dogs in the streets.

    Ps. My dad seemed to like those bird coasters you linked to a while back. Suspect his friends and other members of the family will get a giggle out them too:).

    Someone round our way has an Irish Wolfhound that hangs out of the back window of their crew-cab pickup. Quite disconcerting, especially when it tries to bite passing buses!

    There was a heavy frost this morning and ice on the car windows. Our postman was still wearing shorts.

    Well, what a disaster that was! It was -4 by 10pm. The internal temperature of the van was 2 degrees and my inbuilt diesel heater (The same sort that are fitted in lorry cabs for overnight sleeping) decided to throw a fault and was not working. With only normal duvets (as we were expecting the central heating to be working) there was no way we could sleep, it was bloody freezing, so much so, our breathing caused the condensation on the windows to freeze. At 11pm we were on our way home. Luckily I only had 2 drinks in the pub so was OK to drive!

    Oh my! That brings back memories of young days before central heating - and with very cold winters. Poor you. Bet you were glad to get home. Warmed up yet?

    I remember as a lad in our non-centrally heated house back in the 60`s, scraping the ice off the inside of my bedroom window.

    My first flat was the same. My bottles of cooking oil used to solidify in the kitchen. It was horrible.
