Coming over to sign my house purchase contract on 22nd Dec, and moving in between 5 - 12th Jan. I imagine (given my run of luck) that I will be moving during the worst winter weather on record.

Apologies to all of you I might have inadvertently jinxed. Rolling Eyes

It's had that feel in the air for a few days now.

Even I have noticed the drop in temperature, I might have to change from the ubiquitous shorts to long trousers sooner than I had planned.

We haven't got snow, but the temperatures certainly dropped at the beginning of the week and the wind yesterday cut right through you.

When the dogs went out at 23h30 last night for their pipi it had just started snowing here. This morning it was as if someone had dusted everywhere with icing sugar; very festive and much better than wet weather. Prompted me to bake my Christmas cake today. As someone who used to be affectionately called "celery legs" I aim to keep my legs out from April to October. With the spell of excellent weather we had in October, there was much to be done outside so I have just washed and put away my shorts......and I am no longer sporting "celery legs".......

.........oh and I forgot to wish you good luck with your house move Wormwood. Shame you'll miss the Christmas markets, but, you've got all that to look forward to next year. Starting the New Year in a new location will be awesome I'm sure!

Thank's Blakevine - Looking forward to coming over, yet dreading the process with equal measure.

If you could manage to arrange it so that the snow falls now - and then leaves off till sometime in February that'd be great. LOL.

Oh I think that would be very selfish of us, not letting you join in the experience of a snowy Limousin winter! Very Happy

Couldn't agree more. A long walk, with the dogs yelping, bouncing and scampering in deep snow; rosy cheeks; pinched nose and icy feet and fingers and then back to a roaring log fire, with a cup of Hot Chocolate.

Just think; a few years ago, we would have been slaving away in a stuffy office with the constant pressure of "that report is late"; "I'll need your stats by lunchtime, latest"; "you're required at the meeting, this afternoon"; the constant ear-bashing from directors, managers & councillors; the incessant stream of meaningless e-mails; the insistent phone call wanting to know why you haven't followed up that 'urgent' demand from Mrs Grouch (Grouch by name, Grouch by nature); those pointless inspections and incomprehensible audits; the endless form-filling and pontificating blue-sky thinkers; those laughable training managers with all their ridiculous phrases and those picky personnel from HR, who never did a decent day's work in their lives.

God, how I miss those wonderful times!!!!!!

Dear God tocyvi you must have been working at my place! Your description's just reminded me why the whole move thing is not that bad.

Yeah. Let it snow.

Hi Wormwood. Once you're settled in, I'm sure you'll find it's a lot better than "not that bad". The Limousin area is one of the best in France; it has everything you need and want and you can reach most other parts of France in 5-6 hours.

Forgive me tocyvi - I'm just getting a little stressed about the whole process of upping sticks and shuffling across to join you. After a week or two I'll probably wonder what all the fuss was about! Laughing

Once I've got that ruddy Aga in - the weather can do what it bloomin' well likes.

Far from being cold and snowy, the weather is ridiculously warm for the time of year; I've got daffodils coming up, flowers on azaleas and rhodos and there's even a few clusters of flowers on the cherry tree! It really isn't good to see this. By now, we should be seeing low temperatures and night frosts. Instead we've got miserable, grey, days with temperatures into double figures.

There are still flowers on my geraniums, and I don't mean inside ones either.

Mind you, the mud is dreadful due to all the rain but the forecast is for sunshine for a few days now so hopefully things will dry up a bit.

Told you I'd end up moving in the worst weather on record. Bet the blizzards start around the 10th LOL.
