I took the precaution of repostioning all of my willows and spider/dragon plants (dracaenea) to warmer and less windy spots indoors. Bring it on.

I suspect that the real situation might be somewhere between the arctic conditions reported in the Daily Express and the somewhat more moderate weather forecast by the Met Office.

The prospect of another six weeks on my crutches has me hoping there will not be icy conditions - going anywhere is a bit of a struggle at the moment, without that being added to the mix.

"going anywhere is a bit of a struggle" seems you are getting a taster of how daily life is in your 'dotage' years (grin) I can sympathise though as was on crutches with foot in plaster Dec 2005 and snowbound.

I'm hoping for a late heatwave instead of snow and ice - I'm trying to be an optimist.

I had never realised quite how limiting a whacking great plaster cast and a pair of crutches could be. I find walking pretty tiring, and because the consultant surgeon told me to avoid putting any weight on the repaired foot "under any circumstances" I'm in a perpetually nervous state.

I'm told - by a client who specialises in sports injuries - that the first ten post-operative days are the worst, and that it all gets easier after that. I'm currently on day nine, so we'll see.

My wife says I'm just a big baby, and that I should 'Man up'. I don't know where she picks these phrases up.

Just think of the usual chores you are unable to accomplish at this time. That surely should convince your dear lady to be a little more sympathetic, don't you think?

Sorry to read here of your misfortune, Peter, but until now I wasn't aware you are somewhat incapacitated. Can you say here what caused it, perchance? TC.

I think he went to kick the cat and missed. I think the sport is called caterwauling.
