Today's tea: fish pie, funny carroty-broccoli stuff and salad, late but nice.
Cyclists in the snow: these lunatics clearly have some kind of death wish as they weave between sliding traffic, half blind in a blizzard.
Music: Raw by Confusion.
Radio Scotland: endless traffic prattle, broadcasting texted rants and observations about the absence of guidance, leadership and coordination by the "authorities" during the freeze. No surprises there.
James Naughtie on R4: predicable and not that funny, naughty schoolboy error nicely blown out of proportion by the BBC.
Facebook: like X-Factor in a way, you love it and loathe it but it keeps families connected and the Forth Bridge has an FB page!
Brushing the snow from the cars and the path: Oddly satisfying, presently pointless.
Weather forecasts: fantasising that they are completely wrong and tomorrow will bring a massive thaw.
Cheap grub: BLT from Sainsburys reduced to 39p.
Cats: troubled and confused by the snow but now sleeping in close proximity.
The Trip: BBC2 2200.
Waking up warm at 0600: and wondering about the weather conditions.
