Just as the weatherman said this morning - showery - heavy downpours interspersed with bright sunshine - and very cold. As I look out now the sky is intense blue and it is very sunny but black cloud bubbling up on the horizon. And it is cold. I have to keep reminding myself that it is Thursday. Going out to Ripon yesterday has thrown my days of the week out completely.
Friends S and T came this morning and have sorted my night lights out for the winter. T has the sort of mind that deals with such problems and S was not happy about my having candles in the event of a power cut. (the way things are at present quite likely) . He found that my two lamps in constant use are worn out, but S has fitted me up with a nice light for the side of my bed which I can switch on just long enough for me to see my bedside lamp and switch it on. Now it is just a case of looking for one in the sitting room. No use waiting for it to happen. Maybe "camping" lamps are what I am looking for.
I keep wondering how our friends in Florida are surviving . Our weather girl, Carol, said this morning to imagine a Double Decker bus and then realise that that was the height of a storm surge hitting the shore, accompanied by winds well over a hundred miles an hour.
Well what to have for tea? I rather fancy a tuna sandwich so shall go off and prepare one. See you tomorrow.
