Time to pull your head out from the sand, stop hiding under your duvet and face the sad undeniable fact that winter time is once more upon us. The first frosts are appearing for the early risers and if reports from the weather men are to be believed it could be a tough winter ahead. So, the question is are you prepared?
Have you dug out the big winter jacket from last year? Can you even find your woolly hat and thermal gloves? Have you got your thick work socks washed and ready to go? If you answered yes to the above, then good on you. Put your feet up and have a cup of hot chocolate.
