Set out this morning at ten oclock to walk the ten miles to brothers house to get our daughters back who ended up stranded there last night. On the way we had to go via brothers dogwalkers house and collect his chocolate lab who got stranded there. The flipping dog kept sitting down cos it didnt feel like going any further in the conditions.
Get to brothers,collect daughters,deliver dog,load daughters onto sledges,pull them a mile to mrs barkys work where her car was abandoned last night,dig it out,crawl up the road at 2 miles an hour.
Was convinced we would be attacked by a gang of marauding polar bears at one point-packed snow on roads and pavements-no gritters,no snowploughs-where the hell are they??
On the way we popped into the coop for milk and the place was stripped bare as if armageddon was coming-no milk,bread,tinned goods etc-shelves absolutely empty! The world is coming to an end!
I need a massage,a warm bath and coffee,but am now unable to move from the couch-legs have given up.
