Yesterday I had my first taste of winter.
I was walking my dog around the local park, the wind suddenly picked up and with it,
down came a sleet like rain
With full frontal wind, I must say it wasn’t very pleasant. Wind is my least favourite weather at the best of times, it gives me earache and with sleet attached to it. .well what can I say
The unpleasant weather has reminded me however, how lucky we have been in the UK over the last few years with our incredibly mild winters
Busy, busy, busy. Must do this. ..and that. .this too
Now stop, do nothing. ..at all.
This is today, loads to do, constantly busy. My mind trigged my, “stop ” button . I obeyed and just sat, listened and watched the rain falling outside the patio doors. Maybe for 5 mins, maybe 60 mins. I never noticed
I recently bought a zebra waterproof poncho. I am going to India in a couple of weeks and it’s still their rainy season. Do I thought a fun waterproof zebra poncho would be perfect.
It’s been rather rainy here too, so I thought I would test it in the local park whilst walking the dog.
Off I went, yes people looked at me. You don’t often get a lady dressed as a zebra walking a dog in our local park…the rain came down. ..”ha ha I thought, at least I will be dry!”
It leaked. ..big time. The fury mane on my head, seamed to act like a funnel for rain to run down my back. I became a very wet zebra walking my dog in the local park
I was woken up last night by the rain.
We have been having quite a lot of rain recently and weeks more to come if the weather forecast is correct.
But wow, are we lucky in this country compared to other parts of the world. A nasty little. ..well I mean huge, the size of France huge hurricane is devastating countries on its journey.
It has pretty much wiped out the island of Barbuda and according to the news another couple of hurricanes are following its path.
Rain in Britain. .we are so lucky
We are in August, yesterday morning felt like late October. It was dark, cold and raining.
But there is also something comforting about these days, I was inside doing work looking out of the patio doors at the bleak weather. The music industry chose to play was Leonard Cohens amazing album, “you want it darker. ” .. seamed apt 😄
My afternoon was spent in a tent laying down listening to the rain, with a breeze swiftly blowing through a small opening, my dog close by taking part in a gong sound bath!
And yes, it was really good. I am currently at the consciousness tribal global gathering, I am delivering a couple of the workshops but having great fun taking part in the other diverse stuff going on too.
Rain. ….Making British Festivals Special
It’s been raining a lot recently. ..heavy showers. Wonderful late spring very heavy rain . The weather programmes have assured us that we really need it though.
Lesson learned, don’t put your umbrella in the boot esp in a bag full of useful stuff for just in case !
I like the rain and wow today it’s raining, it hasn’t stopped all day.
This morning, the local park belonged to just me, my dog and very happy ducks. It seems people don’t like walking in the rain.
I think my love of rain started when I was a child, I was given a box which was called, “Things to do on a rainy day” . Inside the box contained index type cards, each one with a fun thing to make or do .
I eagerly awaited rainy days so I could work my way through each. I was raised as an only child. …this explains a lot 😉
Wow did it rain in Wolverhampton, the heavens opened and down came the rain.
I sat in the car park waiting for it to ease a little, 30 mins later I had to move, it hadn’t eased at all.
Walking up to the high Street, it was like walking up a small stream, water entered my boots in minutes. I entered the Grain Store (pub) looking like a drowned rat, ordered food and then ….Yes my favourite comfy chair was available by the fire so I could begin to dry out ☺
Today is the last day of our official winter and it snowed. Not a lot but it did snow, now it’s bucketing down with rain.
There are small signs of spring popping up everywhere, buds are beginning to appear on trees and crocuses are taking over muddy patches on the ground. I do feel spring is late this year though?
