After last weeks cold weather, this week has been positively balmy in comparison. So far, I have been able to get out for a walk every morning and tomorrow is looking good as well.
Having said that though, there have been a couple of mornings where there has been quite a breeze blowing. I’ve taken to wearing my balaclava as a neck warmer. I probably don’t need to, as the coat I wear has a high neck that does up quite tightly, but I’ve got into the habit. Where it has been breezy, there has also been a chill to the wind, on one occasion, it was causing three or four degrees of windchill. On another occasion, the wind was so brisk that I was concerned that my hat might be blown away, so it was good on both occasions to be able to pull my balaclava up over. It was also very comfortable.
Of course with the variable weather comes the dramatic skies and spectacular sunrises, we’ve certainly had a couple of of those, here’s a couple of examples;
I have to confess, I don’t always relish getting up at half past five in the mornings. Mostly it helps if I wake up a little earlier than my normal get up time, or especially if I have a purpose to the walk. For example if I want to photograph something specific, or if there is something I especially want to discuss on the #Breakfastclub. Sometimes, it is just nice to go for a walk and enjoy the weather.
