The picture has nothing to do with today’s post. Just to set a bit of context.
The Met Office got the forecast right. Rain & high winds. I didn’t go for a walk this morning. It was to put it mildly, chucking it down. I wasn’t complaining. Sometimes it’s nice to go back to bed. I didn’t feel guilty because I wouldn’t have gone anyway.
I did get out for a walk lunchtime. It was raining still, so I wore my proper raincoat. It was the normal walk, a quick dash down to the waterfront. I think the gust of wind that very nearly knocked me off my feet, was the one that knocked the plastic greenhouse over in the garden. It was certainly upright before I went out.
Last night, I went out to make sure the car was locked. It was windy, and a bit drizzly. Sometimes I get a real urge to go for a walk, but it was late and I was tired so I resisted. Perhaps the next time I feel like that.
