Friday Forecast...week 44...2/11/12

autumn colous
Pretty Autumn colours on a dreary day.
Well again it has been a while since I posted.

The weather has been a mixture of dry, drizzly or torrential rain.
With some dense fog and drizzly mist thrown into the mix.
Light and strong winds have come and gone throughout the fortnight too.

Days have been cold enough at times for heavy coats, hats and gloves and yet at other times mild enough to go without a jumper.

Yet with all that has been thrown at us I am grateful for what we have and my heart goes out to the devastation that has befallen America by the hands of 'Superstorm Sandy'  and I know that I have no cause to complain about the turning seasons.

The clocks went back an hour last weekend though I have to admit that I turned them the wrong way initially so we were up rather early last Sunday morning!!

I have been very busy over the last two weeks and also not feeling 100% which has added to my silence on my blog. School holiday have been with us but the weather hasn't been very welcoming on visiting the allotment so I have busied myself decorating and getting the kitchen sorted after the recent sluice pipe disaster. Now there are no holes in the walls and it looks lovely once again.

I had a new cooker delivered yesterday which the fitters then said they couldn't fit as it doesn't pass regulations so now I have to get in touch with someone else as I had the last one fitted by a corgi registered person and they said it passed specs. Apparently new specs have not been brought in over the past 20 years so it is a wait and see moment for us.

The only other thing to be left done is have the faulty drippy tap sorted and the plumber is booked for next Friday....I hope I can get the cooker sorted by then too!!

Today has dawned fine and bright and I am undecided whether to get the garden tidied up or go to the allotment. The front lawns desperately need another cut before I put the mower away for the winter and the debris from the recent winds makes everywhere look a mess....decisions, decisions!!

On a plus note I have started another knitting project and I am going to try my hardest to get back to posting regularly and also want to catch up with all my favourite blogs too.

Oh we also visited a place called 'Little Jacks Farm' last week. It was it's first opening and so free entry for the weekend. They had some lovely fresh produce for sale and some nice bit in the garden centre, I bought myself some lemon grass to go in the garden...hope it's hardy enough to get through the winter as it's not something I've ever had before. Anyone have any knowledge on this?

Well that's all for know.

Will have more for you tomorrow.


  1. It sounds as though you've been busy, especially with the kitchen. Hope you manage to get the cooker situation sorted out soon, and also that you get back to feeling 100%, I think there's always lots of bugs flying around at this time of year.

    1. All sorted on the cooker front Jo so very Happy.

      As for feeling 100%...I'll settle for feeling 80%.

  2. welcome back!!
    hope you are feeling better..
    starting to get cooler here too, but anything is better than last weekend and Sandy. the devastation is incredible.
    stay warm!!
    and happy November.

    1. Thanks Annmarie.

      My heart goes out to all those that have suffered Sandy and I hope they soon have things sorted out.

  3. We have had so much rain here lately that I'm feeling a bit soggy :) I even spotted a bit of snow mixed in with it this afternoon.

    1. I forgot to mention that we had some snowfall last weekend. It was about 4am but it was definitely there. Hopefully won't be seeing that again for a while!!


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
