Thank god it’s the weekend. This week has been loooooong and cooooold. I really want this cold weather to go away! Thankfully, FruGuy is finally home again after being stuck in the US due to Gatwick’s closure from the snow, but I have lost out on a £70 train ticket thanks to the weather (advanced ticket = no refund!) On the plus side, we bought our Christmas tree today and it is sitting pretty in the living room making me feel festive as can be!
