More snow

God it's grogeous out there, but damned cold. BBC cambs has some pretty pictures at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/cambridgeshire/weather/weather_gallery/jan_2003_snow.shtml

Cycling was a challenge, made it about halfway to class with only a certain amount of wobblyness, and then the combination of skiddiness and the fact my brakes were beginning to seize up made me decide to walk instead. Byt the time I got the rest of the way I was practically dragging the bike through the snow, the back wheel is barely turning any more! Still it was a nice walk and brough a rosy smile to my cheeks. And I looked like the abominable snowman with a 1cm layer of snow on my front from going head on into the blizzard some of the way, though it's stopped before I got there.

Can't seem to get the software to log in to send my usual weight update, but the details and graphs are at: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~eleanorb/weight/ as usual, if anyone's interested. Frustrated to have put a pound on this week despite having been really good, but I think it's simply water retention from hormonal changes. (I'd say I was pre-menstrual, but I've decided to run two packets together and skip the menstrual bit this month</tmi>). First reached this week 3 months and a week ago. I *will* lose some next week though.

Wondering what the trains will be doing tomorrow, they're cancelled into Cambridge tonight due to a stuck set of points, but if they're running at all tomorrow I think we'll try make it down to London for Kake's party anyhow. And at least we don't have to go into work, having booked the day off for that reason anyway. Will try and take some pictures too, it's too dark at the moment to do anything justice though.
