    5.9 this morning. It’s cold, windy and a winter storm warning issued. We could get up to 30cm of snow by Monday morning coupled with high winds, it could get rather nasty.

    Thanks. I’d like to take credit but I know it was the bottle of malbec Mr C and I shared while watching the National yesterday. Have to say that as I haven’t really had much of a drink for ages, I hogged the lion’s share.
    Will probably be back in the 6s tomorrow (unless we crack another bottle - there’s a thought)

    Hope your wife is improving under your ministrations.

    Thanks @DJC3 she has risen from bed. I suspect mostly to admonish me for not doing everything in the approved manner - there is her way and the wrong way apparently;)

    Of course! I always reload the dishwasher after everyone has helpfully put their dishes in, in a totally higgledy piggledy manner. I have also been known to go out to the washing line, take all the washing down and rehang it properly!
    I completely understand her angst.

    Sounds familiar but after 35 years she still thinks I just don't know how she wants it done and don't find it hilarious watching a grown woman fuming over the way I have filled the dishwasher! I also certainly never paid my sons to fill it wrongly just for the reaction from her.

    It became a game. I told them off for annoying their mum and she would tell me off for getting cross with them -"they were only trying to help":angelic:

    Glad to read that your hubby's been able to leave the intensive care unit, @Glenmac. This must be a load off your shoulders. Please take care of yourself.
