Yes - I assure you. Half past eight this morning huge blobs (can't call them flakes, they were too big for that) of snow falling and they have fallen on and off all morning. The weather man assured me that with the snow/sleet (didn't see that) would come much noticably warmer weather. Can't say I have noticed that yet - I just opened the front door to have a look and I was met by an icy blast. There is a shepherd's pie in the microwave, left there by my carer - so sorry folks but it calls. I shall save this first paragraph and return refreshed.
The shepherd's pie was beautiful - don't know how many shepherd's were used in its construction but by golly it was tasty. Served with savoy cabbage, peas, carrots and mange-tout and of course a cheesy mashed potato topping - bliss. A ham sandwich for my tea and that is me satisfied for today. (maybe a bit of coleslaw in the sandwich too).
It appears to have stopped raining at long last but I don't know whether I dare set out on my 'round the block' walk in case it starts raining again. There is not a vestige of blue sky anywhere - and it is May 8th - on dear.
As is quite often the case here at the week-end, nothing at all appears to be happening. Everyone has 'gone to earth' (can anybody else out there remember that film?) The outcome as far as I am concerned is that I can't think of anything else to tell you today. Except I heard on the one o'clock News that the Police have arrested someone in connection with the terrible murder of the Police Support worker last week - a crime which I am sure has touched the whole nation. That can only be good news. At least it is some kind of break through.
Until tomorrow dear friends......
