Oh no! My work is high up in a field miles away and is very hard to get to when it is snowing.

Noooooo I hate ice and snow.
I really do not like driving in it, it terrifies me and to make matters worse they never come and grit our local streets so even just trying to drive out of our road is a nightmare :(

As nice as it looks at first I dread the snow and ice:{

I have a near phobia of walking on slippery surfaces but thanks to ice grips I discovered on QVC last year I am a lot better now about it.

1 inch of snow and it grinds to a halt round hererolleyes

I'm also feeling the cold so much more this year since going on my diet, thermals will have to be dug out soon!

I love the snow!

But absolutely dread driving in it :(

Working out in the middle of the countryside doesn't help, I have to drive down icy country lanes -scares me big time!

For those of you in the Highlands - just remember to pack blankets, flask of hot drink, sensible boots and a shovel in your cars! I was also told some cardboard is useful to put under tyres if you get stuck - gives you some traction etc...

But my main worry this year though is keeping the piggies snug. Which reminds me, I better go and do their night snugglesafe pads now! :))

I'm going to be so scared of getting the train to and from work in the snow :(
Me too but find trains better than roads/bus in the snow.

Best thing is to be prepared in snow - I wrap up in layers, take a hat/gloves, a book, bit of food and a flask of tea/coffee and my snow grips for my boots - always feel better then!

Oh god I hope not! We've got to drive to Birmingham once a week for the next few weeks and it's hard enough when the weathers clear

Chesterfield is rubbish lol (don't get me wrong I love living here) but a tiny bit of snow and you'd think we lived somewhere remote.
I love the snow and don't mind driving in it, it's the ice and black ice I can't stand.
I've got a new car this year and it has some sort of button with traction control (summat like that) so I'll have to test it out.
My shed is going up tomorrow so at least I'll feel a bit happier about the piggies being warmer.
