brrrrr

If it's blurry, it's only because my hands were shaking and my legs were numb. Does anyone know if they make flannel-lined jeans?

J., who is visiting from warmer climes, is looking rather chilled, but bearing up well, and appreciating the excuse to drink warming grog, warming hot honey liqueur, warming hot cider, warming hot wine and eat warming hot trdlo, warming assorted cookies and warming fried cheese. Now we're looking forward to the pre-Christmas Open Air Slaughter of the Carp.

Czech informants have also confirmed that some families still take home said carp and keep them in the bath for a few days as an alternative (something to do with filtering out the muddy water). Fortunately, we only have a shower, and I have laid down strict rules about the acceptable use of the washing machine after Ye Grate Fludes, I II and III, and Ye Majorre Delyuge IV.

They DO make flannel lined jeans. I have two pair.

I don't know if you can get Eddie Bauer in your neck of the woods, but that's where I got mine.

LL Bean makes them too.

Hmmm. You still out there EAP? Miss you on the Cassie Edwards threads at Smartbitches!

Still, here, thanks for asking bookwormom. The CE threadtaculars are in part responsible for blog silence this last week...

Rest of the silence was simply down to too many festive roast potatoes.

PS. Thank you to you both, sallyacious and bookwormom for suggesting where I might get some flannel-lined jeans. Still considering this...
