We had arranged to meet friends for coffee up in Ramsey this morning so left home around 9:30 so that we could do some grocery shopping before meeting them.
The garden thermometer was showing 4C but the wind chill made it feel much less than that. It was the kind of wind that scoured the skin from your face and made your teeth ache.
After packing the groceries in the boot of the car P suggested a walk around the lake before meeting our friends in the coffee shop.
My response was in the negative.
