Les gens qui ne rient jamais ne sont pas des gens sérieux

Be who you are and say what you mean, those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind

I'm leaving the frozen centre of Poland and heading for the frozen North of England.

I'm going to meet my first cousin once removed and catch up with the rest of the family and a friend or two.

Be good while I'm gone and remember to water the plants. I'll be back on tuesday evening.

Stop exaggerating, and put the heating on. It's not that cold here in Warsaw. Perhaps you're one of those Yorkshire folks who are careful with their money and respond to hazards like frozen toilets by putting an extra sweater on.
Anyway, Britain's heading for a cold snap so the grass won't be greener on the other side of the Iron Curtain.
Where are your roots in Yorkshire? I was born and bred in Dewsbury, but schooled in Wakefield for obvious reasons!

Well, Varsovian, I'm actually a London lass but my dad's from Leeds, which is where i went to uni, and most of my family live in Cumbria... which is where I'm heading today.

And yes, it is bloody cold! Any part not covered up outside goes numb straight away. I guess I'm not acclimatised yet. Gimme a couple of months.

Back online again
I passed through Leeds Uni (teacher training) on my pointless trundle through life before eventually ending up in a fantastic prep school in Banstead nr Sutton, Surrey. Wish I could have stayed there, but my wife was unhappy staying in England worst luck. Still, can't complain ... much!
What brought you to Poland?

Have a great time in the UK, Becca. Hope you enjoy meeting your niece.

As for the coldness, today really upped the ante...time to put on a hat on a regular basis when venturing outdoors and I've got to remember to get my boots out. Brrr....
