I see that I’ve neglected my blog for a few days. My problem is that I sometimes get distracted and spend too much time being a silent reader of many other blogs. Do you do that too?
The weather has been dreadful, rain, rain and more rain together with gale force winds. There was even a tornado that hit a village not so far away from here, now that’s an unusual occurrence for us in Wales, it caused severe damage from winds of up to 135 mph. Our climate is definitely changing.
John has not been well for about a week now with a bad cold, aching limbs, headache, symptoms that are all too common at this time of year. He usually reacts like this to his flu jab, nevertheless, I think its necessary that we take such precautions, as it could end up being a lot worse.
I’ve also been busy making a few Christmas decorations and little hand made Christmas gifts. Being creative with such things seems to add to the festive feel right now. I'll assemble a few and take a picture.
On a relatively dry day about a week ago I took these pictures on one of our walks, I guess the wind has taken most of the leaves off the trees by now, but then, the colours were so beautiful and I just loved the parts of the lane where the pine needles had fallen making a glorious golden carpet, disturbed only by vehicles that had driven that way. As we stood in the quietness of that morning, the pine needles fell gently and silently, just like snow flakes. I met up with my friend Rosie, you’ll see her on the last but one picture, she was out enjoying this perfect time riding her cycle.
