This cold weather is getting boring now

This is the third week now, since it went cold and snowy and it is not showing much sign of changing yet, all the side roads and pavements are still covered in solid ice about a couple of inches thick, making it hard to get about and I am still having to walk to work because the local council will only salt the main roads, hard to believe that at the end of November, Cumbria had the wettest 24 hours ever recorded in England at just over 12" rain when Cockermouth got flooded and Workington had it's bridges washed away, I don't think we have ever had so many Government ministers and national politicians rushing up to see how things were, making sure that they got their faces on TV, you would think there must be an election coming soon. Thinking of visitors I have just been watching ITV's new series "The Lakes" recorded last Summer, if you were eagle eyed you might just have spotted my house from the ariel shot of Windermere thankfully the garden looked tidy and all veg seemed OK. Another victim of this weather is the work on my new greenhouse that has ground to a halt as it is just too cold to start handling the glass but hopefully it will be finished soon and I can get my shallots planted.

On Saturday I got to Goodison Park to see United play Everton, even though we lost and the score was 3-1 it was a great game with United playing some of the best football and up until the 83rd minute we could have nicked it having had a great shot from Danny Livesey strike the underside of the bar 5 minutes before Everton scored their second goal after getting away with a dodgy foul in the build up to it, their last goal was a penalty when they caught us on the break in the last thirty seconds as we had one last attack and only left the goalkeeper back, but at least his was a good fair foul. Now as they say we can concentrate on the League although we are still in the Johnson Paint Cup with a tough semifinal draw against Leeds United but they are now't so we should see them off.
