Chilly throne

Pictured is the only working (I'm being generous here) toilet at new house/workplace. As can be seen our forefathers were obviously hardy folk as today I noticed none of the chaps sneaking off for a long sit with a copy of the Daily Mirror. Considering the rest of northern Britain came to a halt today we all managed to get in work even if the usual half hour journey did take two hours. Once in, the mixing of mortar and plaster required rather more work than usual seeings as everything had either frozen solid or was missing under a blanket of snow.I'm not sure how much work we got through but I do know we had a thoroughly good time doing it.

I have been loving the pictures you've been posting lately. Even an outhouse can look good in the snow...

I noticed that you have England listed as an interest of yours! Perhaps you would like my new blog:

As often as possible I will post photographs of glorious vistas, charming close-ups, and interesting tidbits of life in Great Britain for the pleasure of Anglophiles everywhere!

Work should be enjoyable even if it is cold. Conveniences are a luxury!

A Happy New Year to you!
