Brrr freezing ....

Thankfully the predicted snown did not arrive last night, however it is still icy cold here, a day of baking ahead for tomorrow's refreshments after mass - that should keep us all warm and cosy.
Have just been browsing a few blogs that I read and found this little nugget to share:
(Something for Kate -

"A real woman always keeps her house clean and organized, the laundry basket is always empty. She's always well dressed, hair done. She never swears, behaves gracefully in all situations and all circumstances. She has more than enough patience to take care of her family, always has a smile on her lips, and a kind word for everyone.

Who else suspects they might be a man?" - author unknown.
