The Second day of Christmas

    

                

Good Afternoon, What a morning we had here Stuart and I we planning to go up to Perth to have a wander round the Sales. Just before we left I remembered it was bin day so I went out the back to get the bin. So far so good as I came down the side of the house I thought the pavement looked a bit shiny what I thought had been rain was actually black ice all the road and the pavement were just one big sheet of ice. As I proceeded towards the pavement off our drive I started to slide me and the wheelie bin.  I had on a pain of leather soled shoes which were flat thank goodness so I could not get a grip at all.  A neighbour across the road had to slid across to help me On how I wished I had my skates on then I would have been in my element. I thought Stuart would call off the trip but he thought it would be OK once we got on the motorway which is only about a quarter of a mile away.  Sure enough once we got out of the cul-de-sac we live in all was well.  The pavements up in Perth were not great but got better as the morning progressed.  The shops were busy at M&S were doing a roaring trade The queues in there were horrendous I put back what I wanted as it would have taken all morning to get to the top of the queue.   Did get a nice pair of leather shoes in a nice shoe shop reduced from £55 to £10 in a lovely Taupe colour so I think I got a good bargain there. Well I think that's about all for now as I will have to go and do some reading to get my answers off for the Journal Tournament that we are doing just now. They are due in tomorrow and I still have some answers to find. Loads of love,

Glad it was only a slide and that you did not fall.  Black ice is so treacherous. Sounds like you got a great bargain there, we have no money left for sales lol

Oops and I have just commented to Ally suggesting she move to Bonnie Scotland to get away from the snowy winter weather. Must be milder here than in your area!!  Glad you didn't hurt yourself.

Black ice is nasty business.  I'm glad things worked out though.
