Village Church coffee morning (always the first Saturday in the month) - lots there and I never heard the word 'Brexit' mentioned. Lots of mentions of snowdrops, aconites, weather in general, lambs anyone?, but nothing further afield.
Just as it should be here in our quiet little Yorkshire Dales Village. One of the reasons I like living here.
It hasn't been a pleasant day here today. Yesterday the temperature was 11 degrees and the sun shone. Today it is 7 degrees and mostly rainy.
Still, even that is not bad for the first day of February and, according to something I read in the paper, we have already gained an hour and twenty minutes extra of daylight.
Every day a few more flowers appear and the snowdrops in my garden are well out now. I do hope we don't have a nasty rude awakening like last year when The Beast from the East descended and we had a heavy fall of snow. The older I get the more I dread the cold weather and the more I long for some Spring - don't know about you.
Well folks, Brexit has passed - well stage one at any rate. I wonder how long it will be before we notice any difference at all. Or will life - for us out in the sticks at any rate - go on just as it did before?
Our little family group are having a celebration of sorts this evening (although we actually voted to remain but we live in a Democracy and the other side won the vote) and are sitting down to a take-away Indian meal. Don't ask me what we are eating. I am not all that familiar with Indian food so have left it to my son to choose what I eat (as long as it is not too hot).
After a very bad night's sleep the night before last I had a brilliant sleep last night and didn't wake until eight o'clock this morning-feel much better for it. See you tomorrow.
