Blogger Ate My Homework.
My day got off to a good start today when a beautiful double rainbow appeared in the sky as I was driving to work. It then went downhill when I realised half way through the morning that my blouse was on back to front. Yep highly professional as usual. Then got a whole lot better as I was sitting eating my lunch and a woodpecker landed in the tree right beside our patio door. I have never seen one so close before, though it did insist on lurking on the other side of the trunk. Unfortunately the day took a dive when I typed a huge post which was absolutely brilliant, my best yet, award winning writing.....honest.....which then disappeared.
Anyway what I was rambling on about was the imminent arrival of winter and trundling around seriously out in the middle of nowhere little roads where if I were to break down or hit a famously hard Cornish hedge I would have to walk miles for help. So this year I thought I would get organised early, my friends have probably fainted at this stage. My boot is now full of a blanket, boots, coat, hat, gloves, scarf, de-icer, screen cleaner, torch with SPARE BATTERIES! I think I excelled myself with that little extra. As I flit around to various overheated locations in my work role I am often dressed as if it is summer, so actually getting out of the car to walk far would probably see me off. The AA has an excellent winter driving check list here http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/seasonal/winter-checklist.html It advises carrying snacks in the car in case you are stuck anywhere, I would be eating them if I was stuck in traffic for five minutes!
So over to you, what are your winter essentials in the car?
I promised you a chutney recipe, I know how excited you were, but I am still sulking about losing the damn thing that took ages to type out so I will put it in my next post.
Welcome to Deb :)
Sorry for any typos, I'm pressing the publish button before the damn thing eats my post again.
