Taking a Battering

Here in the U.K. we are experiencing some very storm weather. I have never seen so much heavy rain with some being Hail Stones. In my corner of the U.K. I have been very lucky.

My ground floor flat is in an old Victorian house. It’s situated on a hill over looking the town.

As I watched out of the window the wind was “Gale Force” most of the day. At one point I watched as it blew my small greenhouse over the back yard onto its side.

You know how you mean to do something but never get round to it? Well, I was going to dismantle it ’till the spring. The wind had provoked me into bringing the greenhouse indoors and I placed it in the porch way, still insitu. I may or may not dismantle it a later date.

Despite this horrendous weather there was hope in the garden. My pots planted with bulbs were growing well. I have Snowdrops and Crocus out. Even some Wallflowers too.

Last Winter my wooden fence fell down in the wind but the new one stands strong.

I have been watching on the T.V and looking in the paper at all the water and its flooding up along the Thames. being from that area originally I knew a lot of the places shown.

I was planning a family get together in the summer. To go on a boat trip on the Thames and then a picnic on the large grassy area beside the Thames at Reading. As a child I spent many happy hours down by the locks watching the traffic of boats pass through. I wonder whether this will materialise?

The other factor is will I be well enough to go as still waiting to see the surgeon to see what treatment I will get. Appointment is 5 March. he’s on holiday till then – as from23 January. Long holidays they seem to get!!!!

Spotty & I were not able to go out today – not even just up the road but they have promised a better day Saturday.
