I expected the portacabins to be cold so wrapped up warm accordingly.
I expected the roads to be icy with the cold and snow so drove carefully.
I expected to be further from any shops so made sure I didn't forget to bring lunch.
I expected to be further from a garage selling cheaper fuel so filled up in advance.
I didn't expect it to be quite SO cold!!
I didn't expect the water pipes to freeze leaving us using water from the drinking bottles to fill the kettle and pour down the loo to flush it!!
And I didn't expect the frozen pipes to burst when thawing out, flooding water into the corridor and resulting in having to share the 'men's facilities in a separate cabin outside - Brrrrr!!!
Add to that poor mobile coverage, a dodgy land line system and a view out onto a blank wall and, well, you can't blame me for hoping today would be a 'snow day'!
Well, I managed to get there despite a bit of slipping and sliding, the toilet is fixed and I'm ensconced in my little office with the heater on high so things are looking up (and if the weather is anything to go by, I might yet get a snow day this week) :-)
Tag Square Bee for November.
Bye for now
