I don't think I can remember a day as cold as today has been. Up here in the Mendip Hills the temperature hasn't risen above -6C all day, although it was -3C when we went down to Wells to have some lunch and do some shopping. It's been foggy all day and the trees haven't lost the tiniest bit of the heaviest frost I've seen in a long time.
That's not snow on the trees, it's frost. It's nearly 4.30 now and just about dark enough to close the curtains and shut it all out.
I'm now snuggling up with a cup of peppermint tea and a gluten-free chocolate bourbon in our warm lounge to watch the latest episode of Miranda, which I downloaded from BBC iPlayer.
I hope you're managing to keep warm if it's as cold where you are.
