Liking this week…
Cold weather this week the weather forecasters are getting all excited about cold weather coming in from the north east with possible snow. Being the furthest point from the north east there is no chance we will be having snow but it has turned cold out there. I admit I like it when it’s cold as I feel justified in having the heating on and curling up in the evening with a blanket is the only sane thing to do. I have though had to get tough and insist the children wear their coats. This of course means I am now seen in their eyes as over protective and over reacting.
Community spirit is alive even for a cat. Our beloved cat, Felix, is poorly. Now this won’t mean much if you’re not of the cat loving camp but to us it’s a vigil of hugs. A rush visit to the vet was needed last night and not being able to find the cat box had to borrow a neighbours. It’s turned all very Coronation Streetish in my terrace today with neighbours asking how he is and passing on their best to him. After enduring the indignity of a thermometer up his bum and double dose injections, I can happily report he isn’t any worse.
Not liking this week….
The recent floods Cornwall – it was sudden and devastating. As quickly as it hit the news it’s been forgotten again, but not by us who live in Cornwall. Not only have friends been knee deep in water and mud but schools, markets and businesses have been closed too. Some businesses wont be opening again as the devastation was too much. The knock on effect has been felt by everyone.
New street lights even darker I know I am a lover of the darker evenings but the recent change in the street lights have made our streets even darker. The council have changed the street lights to newer sky friendly ones. Now that bit may be good but the street is now lit with pool of light. It does have a Victorian feel about it as you plunger into almost darkness in-between each lamppost.
