Stay Safe!

Well, I hope you are all safe and well and not stuck in some awful traffic jam!  I had a bad day yesterday - slipped on the ice on my way TO work - cut lip where I tried to bounce off the pavement!!  and a big bruise is developing nicely on one thigh!!  And yes, I WAS wearing sensible boots!

Then the journey home was bad - it started to snow (having rained earlier) around 4 so they said we could leave work early -around 4.30 - I got a bus almost straight away and then it crawled through horrendous traffic (it had at leasted stopped snowing) for 2 and a half hours (a 20 minute journey, mind you....) back to Sutton.  If I hadn't fallen in the morning, I'd have got off and walked, but I have to admit, I was scared!!

I was going to get a taxi back from the train station home so I didn't fall again - of course everyone else had the same idea, so I braved it and walked - lots of slushy wet snow but luckily enough grip this time, made it home at 7.40... (I did have to do some grocery shopping on the way so I could eat!!)
The journey back to work this morning - in my wellies this time - was 15 minutes on the bus - think everyone is staying inside!

So I hope you are all safe and well and not having too much trouble with your journeys here there and everywhere!  Take care, all.

Thank goodness you managed to get home and arrive at work this morning, do you always go to work so early or did you go earlier because of the weather, if wonder. Have had a good time looking at your blog, you're very creative. Have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year. xx
