Frosty morning

Jack Frost, you sneak in silently under the cover of darkness. Just like a spy, except you leave evidence of your visit.

We awaken to find the world around us glistening in delight, as you decorated it to remind us to celebrate nature in all its glory.

Some might say you sparkle like diamonds, but I say its better than that. You sparkle like the eyes of lovers, or that of a child discovering with wonder that Father Christmas has visited.

As the sun comes out, you quietly without even a whisper creep away slowly and gently, but leave us with the feeling of magic within us, and the promise of warmer days to come.

One day, who knows when, I know you will return to remind us again.



Hiya, I hope you are all having a lovely day, and have something unexpectedly nice happen to you today!


We have had the weather getting so crazy confused recently due to climate change, did you notice how much hotter it has been this year? Well I certainly did, what worries me is this saying: what goes up, must come down again. I am worried that after an incredible long, hot and dry year it’s all going to get really bad in the opposite direction now, and we will suffer and bad winter. The likes of which we haven’t seen for a long time now.

Please make sure that you have done a bit of basic preparation just in case, a few tins extra, and more logs for the fireplace if you have one, that kind of thing. No…. I’m not suggesting you hoard in weeks worth of supplies or anything like that, but check you have the basics in, and your car is in good road worthy condition, you have de-icer etc…

Check in on your neighbours, especially the elderly, less mobile, or otherwise vulnerable ones especially. Make sure they are ok too.
