No time to put a post on yesterday as I was busy all day, but here I am bright and early this morning and the sun is blazing through the window. It is only when I step outside the door I realise that the weather is pretty cold and decision time has arrived. I shall go upstairs, have a shower and then break open the box on the bedroom floor which is marked 'winter jumpers' and start wearing them! Unless there is a sudden drastic change for the better I think that - for me at any rate - T shirt time is over.
Very strong gales were forecast. Admittedly I never sleep in my hearing aid so if there was a huge gale I wouldn't have heard it and although it was raining when I went to bed I wasn't conscious of it raining through the night. This morning most of the gale has blown itself out and the sun is shining but on Breakfast Television Local News it said that the road was flooded through Wensleydale - this only happens when there is a lot of rain and a strong West wind together. Luckily I have no intention of going that way today.
A day at home today so now it is time to take Tess for her morning walk and then we will go into town to get petrol and a newspaper. This afternoon is packing time again.
