In the North East of England, blizzards are expected to hit from tomorrow until Sunday as an icy Arctic wind is threatened. Temperatures are expected to plummet to -3 degrees with possible snow and sleet forecast. This is not so unusual for the temperamental British weather but us Brits do like to talk about the weather.
No, you haven't accidentally stumbled upon a BBC weather report but rather, although this cold spell is not expected to last past the weekend, I relish the prospect of some cold weather. Especially as it's over the weekend, the freedom is there to do whatever you please.
I love the autumn/winter season purely for the fact that you can wear more items of clothing. I've chosen a selection of winter woolies to keep me warm. The Ugg boots are there, fashion yes or fashion no-no, the debate is of no interest when all I'll be thinking of is my feet wrapped in cotton wool.
I like to think I will be able to venture out to a local place of beauty, Jesmond Dene is a glorious place to walk and given some scenic additions of snow and ice, it will appear more beautiful.
Then upon my return, I will be able to cosy up with a nice hot drink in the warmth of my little flat, happy and content.
