Looking after ourselves


Hello Dear Reader,

Oh heck it’s so cold. We don’t get much snow, if any, in Cornwall. Sometimes, we get a smattering over Bodmin Moor and a bit around town and villages surrounding the moor. 

As I was saying, it’s cold, dark and I’m so over this winter! It may have a romantic noir about it to some but it’s strangling me!

I’m aware that I’m feeling like a pile of shit so I’m doing all I can to look after myself.

I’m eating well. I could do more but I’ll start with that.

Winter is supposedly getting worse……look after yourselves too.

More fish, green, Greek yogurt and fruit for me. 

Winter, you can sod right off! Roll on spring X

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs x

  1. No snow here in the Midlands, in fact it’s quite mild – it’s forecast for the weekend for us though. I’m actually a winter person but even I’m ready for some warmth now.

  2. I thought the same thing Froogs earlier today, roll on spring indeed. So cold here in North Somerset.

    At least it means I keep away from the shops and spending money on things I don’t need.

  3. Soooo hot here I really dislike January and go into hibernation!
    Isn’t it strange the weather around the world?
    Keep warm as we try and stay cool!

    • Spiraling the veggies makes the kids more happy to eat the veggies. Makes mum happier!!
      In Richmond nsw, it just reached 42.7 degrees Celsius.
      We all go into hibernation too- just aiming to get thru the day.
      Drink lots of water and stay out of the sun -the only way to go.

  4. I have no less than two more months of deep winter, hoping to start thawing by Mid March, so I can relate. I had an out of office meeting and it felt so good to leave and be driving in sunshine as I so often leave and come home in the dark, and few windows in my office building. Depressing. Made some crunchy, cheery coleslaw for supper-think summer!

  5. I grew up in Cornwall, now live in AU, give me a snowy winter over this heat anyday. I remember growing up we did get a few days off school due to snow. Living on top of a hill in St Day had its benefits, didn’t take much snow on the roads to keep the buses away 👍

  6. I am in England for my first time and off to Paris today. I have enjoyed many sunny days over the last week. Last night we came back to London during peak hour and I thought the snow would make life bad. But we were going in not out and everything was fine. The train strikes have caused us more problems. One week here and I love England.

  7. I am in France and they predicted -16 degrees next week and guess what, I ran out of heating fuel!!! Thought I had at least another 500 litres but a leak in July put paid to that. We have started with the snow but so far so good driving wise. The other positive is that it has been sunny so I can take the cold if we at least get sunshine. Spring is still my favourite season though so roll on spring. Anna

  9. Hi, I too am in Queensland Australia and spent today with 38 degrees C with high minimums at night, but I prefer the heat to the cold and try to spend my winters in the northern part of the continent. Thanks Melinda

  10. I too have had enough of the cold. The wood stove is working overtime and the draft excluders are doing their job. Gas and electric still in credit which has not always happened in the past. Eating plenty of greens, stews etc to fend off the cold.Finding the dark evenings a pain and I need to take up a hobby to keep me occupied as the tv selection is dire. We have a dog that does not care how bad the weather is he still wants a walk.so I am looking forward to better temperatures. Spending time on line looking for money saving ideas , budget decorating etc

  11. I love to read these posts from different countries. I am in Wales, no snow, moody children who are desperate for snow and time off school and a mad collie who likes to out in all weather. I work in forestry, so lucky to be outside most days getting a bit of what sunshine we get this time of the year. I do however absolutely love our seasons. The dippers are getting ready for spring down on our local stream and it won’t be long until the daffs show their heads. In the meantime I am enjoying my woodburner, a couple of candles and good winter food! Won’t be long til Spring when you can throw open your French shutters Froogs. How lovely.
