Another day where clouds cover the earth, Does winter ever end? No wonder those living in the far north suffer depression and commit suicide! Imagine six months of darkness! A couple of months of cold, rain and cloud depress enough quite how they manage up in Lapland beats me. They do drink a lot it must be said and that cannot be good for them. No wonder the Vikings long ago loved to move to Scotland as the weather was more acceptable! That tells you something!
Yesterday the sun shone brightly as you can see, cheering everyone and allowing the pigeons to think that Spring was on the way and they began to chase the girls through the trees. This morning they were sitting in the branches of the same trees digesting their breakfast and looking for woolly hats to wear.
Of course this week has been mild and the gutter press are screaming that next week it will be "warmer than Greece." This does not say much as Greece gets cold in winter also of course and there is much snow on them thar hills. Hopefully this will actually happen but the press are never reliable sources.
Interestingly the other day I read that Wiki, the source of all knowledge, has banned the use of the 'Daily Mail' as a source grumbling that the 'Mail' is "..not a reliable source." How right they are! Will the 'Daily Express' and the 'Sun' follow I wonder?
You can tell nothing else happened here.
Trapped indoors by housework, trapped indoors by weather, trapped indoors by stiff knees and trapped indoors by laziness! Not actually in that order.
I am not getting out and about at the moment, there is little worth reading in the news, little exciting happens and I am not yet finished any of my books.
My memory is so poor these days I am unsure if i went out this morning or just imagined it. I think I need a matron here to look after me. I am beginning to wonder if I should go to bed or just wait until someone phones and tells me what to do next.
Life can be so exciting....
