Thunderstorm Season

Where we live we tend to miss all the extremes of weather. However, today we are in the centre of it all. I love thunderstorms and this one is a good one. We had about an hour of strobe lightning making us feel we were in a film like Close Encounters or War of the... Continue Reading →

6 weeks later…

I keep meaning to do a post, and then something comes up, and later I realise that I didn't do my post, and think I will do it now, but manage somehow to get myself sidetracked and BOOM! Forgot to post again. I do not know what is going on with me. So, forgive me... Continue Reading →

Bloody Rain…

I don't know how many UK readers I have, but I am sure if you live in the North as we do, you are sick of the rain by now. We live on the coast, and we also have our own microclimate, however, for the last three weeks, we have had nothing but rain, rain,... Continue Reading →

Snow Play Time…

The so-called "Beast from the East" arrived overnight and we finally got about 3 inches of snow.  Now, those of you know my blog, know I love snow and have been waiting for a good snowfall since 2010, and today it arrived, but it did not last too long as the sun came out and the...

What Snow?

I love the snow, and each year we have to go and look for it, and this year is no exception to the rule.  The whole of the country seems to have snow, be it think 12" or just a smattering of the white stuff, but here, in our little microclimate we do not have... Continue Reading →

Tuesday Catch Up…

So-called plans…

We joined the national trust this week and thought, what the hell, let's go to Lyme Park, spend the day there, and of course, take Harper with us. We have not been there for about 6 years. Even though we would not be able to go into the house with the dog, we were happy... Continue Reading →

To Hot to Drop Stitches

Because of the unprecedented fabulous weather we are having at the moment, I am writing this in the garden in direct scorching sunlight with Stone Sour on my headphones, and so I have not been doing any knitting, not a jot in the last 10 days. Rather than sit in the lounge, or on the... Continue Reading →

Fog

I love the fog, especially when I was a Kid in the 70's it used to be thick as pea soup, and of course called a "pea-souper". However, these days it seems to be ice cold, wet and not too thick. One thing that annoys the living daylights out of me is drivers who don't... Continue Reading →
