Hey! It's snowing! And the only place in the entire countryside it's settling is in our garden. Literally, I look out of the window over north east Fife, all the way up to Dundee, and everything is lush and green - but there's a white patch that is our garden. Brilliant! I love living in the lee of a hill. On the other hand, it's brass monkeys out there, and with my ongoing sniffles I feel no desire to get out and exercise. Yesterday I did a full weight loss programme on our elliptical machine - 49 minutes of my life I'll never get back. Jesus it's boring. A thrill a minute watching the level bounce from 4 to 7 every 3 minutes. Yaaaaawn. But at least I didn't have to go outside.

I have a bet with Pro that I can lose more weight than him by February 29th. And the prize?

An ice cream cake.


Meanwhile, I've found a recipe that might actually feed me 'n' my 9 mates next Christmas - although don't count on there being any leftovers.


Right, I'm off for a wee lie down. This weather is depressing me.

We almost never see snow in this part of Texas. When is does snow, it doesn't last long, so I'm always excited by it - no way could I go back to bed.

Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Cheers. I feel quite a bit better today, although the cold has moved to the annoying back of my nose - but at least I've got my sense of taste back! Huzzah! I'm off to Glasgow with some pals to stay at the swanky Hotel du Vin, and if I couldn't taste anything it would have been a disaster. We've got a walk to do in the Lomonds first, up Ben A'n - so with any luck I'll not fall and break anything.

Pro (oops nearly outed him there) refused ice cream today. Be proud!
