What an interesting week it’s been.
I know the UK is getting a bit grumbly because there’s not a lot of bread kicking about, but I’m all on board for an extended winter.
Five days ago the ‘Beast from the East’ made it’s grand entrance into Glasgow, causing the city to essentially shut down from Wednesday afternoon to Fridayish. I mean, I’m typing this now and it’s currently still snowing. The streets are still covered in a compact hybrid of snow, ice and dirty sludge. It feels like walking around in brown sugar.
Being from Texas, this is the probably the deepest snow I’ve ever stomped about in and I find myself constantly staring out the window like an excited puppy to gaze at all the snowflakes.
So, I welcome the Beast. It’s allowed me to work from home, watch some films, triple layer my socks and of course, get my home-baking on.
