The weather has taken a turn for the better, at long last.
Gale force winds have eased off and the sun is shining in a pale blue sky. Still pretty cold though, with the temperature struggling to reach 8C. I drove to the supermarket this morning and, as soon as my hands touched the steering wheel, I regretted not digging out my gloves from whichever drawer they are hiding in.
Still, it did my heart good to see the sea sparkling in the sunlight as I drove along the coast road.
The supermarket had a special deal on my favourite wine. Too good to ignore so I bought two cases! The gentleman in the queue in front of me turned around as I placed the 12 bottles onto the belt and raised one eyebrow. "Having a party?" he asked. I just smiled back and said "No, this is just to last me over the weekend". He did hesitate for a minute before finally chuckling.
In the garden our silver birch tree has lost most of its leaves now, all blown away by the gales. I remember when we brought it back from the garden centre in the back of the car. It wouldn't fit in there now.
Car manufacturers please refrain from testing new models in wind tunnels, There are thing far more important: Will the car be big enough to move a mature silver birch tree and two cases of wine?ReplyDelete
And be self cleaning...Delete
No paying for car washes or having to suffer ignoramus 4x4 drivers.Delete
I wish that I had had a sister. Instead I had three brothers. As a teenager, having a sister would have helped me to feel more comfortable with girls. I also attended an all boys grammar school. No wonder I felt so awkward at first.ReplyDelete
Yes, single-sex schools were perhaps not the best for developing teenage confidence in that respect.Delete
Will you be my sister JayCee?Delete
Would I have to buy you birthday and christmas presents and comfort you when you feel sad?Delete
Drat! You saw straight through my cunning plan!Delete
A very unusual berry colour and I'm not quite sure what I think of it.ReplyDelete
I suppose it must be like Marmite.... love it or loathe it?Delete
My sister certainly perks me up. I am grateful for her.ReplyDelete
Me too. I can't imagine being without my sister.Delete
