Global warming

I am trying to remember the last time I was warm. I mean really warm, not just wrapped up in 100 layers of clothes warm. It has to have been pre Brussels.

It is freezing here. It is so freezing we have already had one set of burst pipes with resultant flooding (Boxing Day of all days) and the pipes have frozen again. As a result I have not been able to use my washing machine for over a week - that's how long the pipes out to the wash-house have been frozen solid!

Then there's the oil. We got a delivery on Christmas Eve, and another one is coming tomorrow!

Last night it was so cold here I put my thermals on under my pyjamas and my dressing gown over them before I went to bed. And an extra blanket over the duvet. I was just about warm enough cocooned in all that fabric to get to sleep.

Worst of all, Friday nights rugby has already been cancelled because of a frozen pitch, and next weeks game is even apparently looking doubtful!

So I'd like to know where this global warmng thing is happening and maybe move there. What we're experiencing would more accurately be called global freezing. Brrrrrrrr
