This is what noon looks like.
There’s supposed to be cold snap coming today. Much of the north on down to Connacht is supposed to be getting at least some sleet. Does it look cold in the pictures? It is, but this is pretty normal and, it’s really not that cold. If you can manage with high 30sF then that’s about as bad as it’s gonna get. It does go right through you though. That’s why people talk about it a lot.
We made it to the other side of Christmas too. Santa got the kids most of what they wanted and we got to spend an evening with some relatives, which really counts when they’re as busy as they are. The kids got much needed scooters and legos. They really like the scooters and they’re back into going out even when it’s bad outside. I’m still trolling for work. I played three jobs since moving here and I’m still getting PFOs from the cover letters and CVs I’m sending. To be fair I’m only 4 months in and since the Christmas week have slacked off a little, and I’m actually singing country n getting paid for it, go figure. Bridget has multiple skills and has been able to cook for a living here, sort of. The post Christmas shut down is coming and that means no cooking job at the Lake for a while. Most places either severely cut hours &/ or crew or they simply shut down until March. We’ll be fine, although we may have to eat noodles from time to time. I hear it’s madness from March to September. If I’m starting to get gigs and get around I think I’ll be fine by the summer. Since B will be home more ( in theory) I can go out more in the evening. It’s a juggle.
