The shortest day with the most things to cram into it!!! Think we are all getting ready to hibernate and resist stuffing ourselves with chockies ;D

Don't worry - it gets lighter much quicker than it got darker
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Just realised I'm cold - wish I'd had a wood burner put in when I moved in here.  Stupid delaying it.  First job after New Year I think!  Off to get some hot food and a cuppa

Is that where the rule of not washing between X-mas ans new year comes from, the turning churns? My gran was adamant - I try to stick to it, more to have a rest from it than anything else lol. Can't avoid the car, I suppose  :&>

Never heard of that one.  And I don't like wreaths - remind me of funerals

Does that just mean washing clothes cos they go round in a machine ? or can i avoid washing myself to? heating water up on the stove to bathe in cos the pipe to the shower is frozen is a real bind. If I put on enough clothing maybe no one will smell me if I don't wash for a week.
Gone are the days when people were stitched into their underwear in the autumn and cut it off in the spring - thank goodness
Happy longest night everyone. Wish I'd gone to bed earlier and spent it sleeping.

I always assumed it had to do with washing hanging on the line, so wrong  ;D little blue, any idea where this originates? Marigold, by all means to keep warm with all the coating on the skin intact :D  Inhabitants of the Himalayas don't wash either and those temperatures are about the same now as here!  :&>
