I Can’t get Warm Today!

I can’t get warm today!…I have put the heating on FULL and I am cozied up on the chair by the fire in the sitting room.  We have snow again, but its that silly kind that really should be rain…at least it has started to melt.

I have been looking through my old photos and decided to show you some of them…piccies that I havn’t looked at for ages and some that I had forgot I had altogether!  So rather than actually blog about more snow (coz I have actually had enough of it all now!) I thought I would show you some Happy pics 🙂 and that way, hopefully the snow will get the hint!

Don’t the winter months seem so long, those ‘orrible dark nights…errr! I hate them and yet summer flies past!

I can’t wait till Spring…I have decided that is my favourite month…because here in the Happy House’s Garden, there is so much to get excited about…the beautiful flowers and shrubs that appear here are fabulous.

…and its also a time for sorting and re-arranging….and I love all that kinda thing.

My feet are starting to warm up now, well they should of done really, as I have 6 pairs of socks on, with Uggs and the fire on! Phew! and thats not including the central heating! which is on FULL!…STILL!

Really I should do some exercise…the washing up needs doing! does that count as exercise! in my book it does! as I have been sooo lazy lately…oh yes, lazier than little Maxi above! although wherever I am…Max is not far behind! Bless him I am sure he thinks I am his Mummy! I know most of you think he is a puppy, but Max is in his 7th year, but is soooo small, he is ever so sweet and doesn’t eat much, if you give him something to eat and he doesn’t fancy it…he will hide it somewhere in the house! he is sooo funny, as he digs the Rugs up as if it was mud in the garden and shoves food underneath them, ahhhh! ain’t that sweet! yes it is! Until you trip over it!!! Arghhhhhh! that ain’t a pleasant experience! LOL!

Just had dinner…Yes I decided to move and actually I am feeling quite warm now! Infact I am feeling quite sick! My feet feel about 200 degrees and I am feeling very dizzy! I think I will have to go out and get some air!

Or take some of my layering off….I think perhaps that scarf and hat took me over the warmth threshold! Especially once I fired up the stove to make dinner! LOL!

Yes! I will have to look into seriously getting fit soon.  Perhaps starting to take Max for a walk again will do the trick….no-one wants to take him out in our house, as he never has really grasped the idea of cocking his leg and just doing the one poo! (sorry about that!) Nope Max will poo at every lamp post and wee like a girl! LOL!

Rosie has just left the house, she will be staying around a friends house tonight and they will be going to college together in the morning….rather than go upstairs, she has decided to borrow my Uggs for the trip to college in the morning…at least I am starting to cool off a bit now!

The House is quiet once more and I am sitting back on my cozy chair by the fire!…which is now turned OFF! Phew its hot!…I am watching ‘Great British Railway Journey’s’ with Michael Portillo, I have found this series very interesting indeed, today he has taken a steamboat tour of lake Windermere….which looks sooo beautiful…I Want to go too!.

I have come to the end of my photo’s…I hope you have enjoyed them and they have helped make you feel happy 🙂 I had better go now as my feet are beginning to feel a little cold again! obviously bad circulation! Eek! all this feeling hot and cold throughout the day is hard work in itself….Goodness only knows what the heating bill will be like!

Oh and I must just say…not that its an overthought or anything, but my lovely son Daz went back to Uni on Sunday and I am missing him soooo much, we had such a lovely time, he was with us for about a month and I loved looking after him although the fridge was always empty! and there was never any peanut butter left for toast in the morning! my toiletries have all been used up and there was always wet towels on the floor!..But this week I have been pining like a lioness that has lost her cub (paw me!) He has grown into a lovely guy and I am sooo proud of him 🙂

Roll on Spring, more holidays and warm feet!Love Happy x

    Thanks, for the canister info, Happy…I've never heard of that store, which probably means I can't find it in the US! I've had fun looking through your new pics…lots of Cath Kidston in your home! Another place we cannot visit here! Love to visit it in your home!

    Well if you want exercise but don't want to overdo it, just get Max's most stylish coat out, pop on a pair of snazzy wellies, elegantly wrap yourself up and power walk to the nearest field, guaranteed exercise and fun too. My dog poops for Britain and wee's like a girl so we go early in the morning and at dusk no one see's us then!Love the photos bright and cheery!Nickyx
