Thank goodness I live in a town, snow really is not an issue if you do, all the main roads are clear, I can walk to the town centre in 10 minutes and get to the railway station in another 10.  I dont get it when people dont go out in it, unless their disabled, elderly or live in a cut off rural area, just put a warm coat and scarf/boots on and there is no problem.  Yesterday I got my post on time and couriers arrived with things I had ordered on the internet again on time.

My new leather strap/tawse arrived this week, I bought them in a lighter leather than normal as they mark less and hurt less, for people who come to see me that cant take anything too hard.  I also got a new cane which I am very happy with.  They have already had use this week and went down well.
