    Storms in 2020

    I did add 'like everyone else' when I said I have had enough. I've had my share of heartache don't worry, losing an eye at 14 years old wasn't easy.

    Storms in 2020

    Windy again here. Had enough now, just like everyone else I would think. I would like to wrap up and do some tidying in the garden, but not with this wind. Or sweep the footpaths at the front of the house, but no point if the wind hasn't stopped.

    Storms in 2020

    Dies down and sounds like a calm interval, then it picks up again. It's just died down at the drop of a hat, hopefully that's the end.

    Storms in 2020

    Wind picked up here again last night, it just came out of nowhere. Still bad now. I'm staying in today. It's the falling debris that bothers me, otherwise I'm not worried about being blown around.

    Storms in 2020

    I have my blinds closed. I find it frightening to watch. I find the weather and the power of the elements Interesting, but it's the possible heartache it can be responsible for that I don't like.

    Chamomile Tea, any other tea that tastes better but does the same job?

    I am sure you are all wondering how I am getting in with the chamomile tea!!!!!!! Well, to save keeping you in any more suspense, I am still drinking at least one cup a day. I love the stuff, but have to take it easy, just incase!!!!

    Not nice weather here. I think we should have little cyclone's on the screen like the hearts! Honest, I think it would acknowledge storm Denis and help it to feel it has nothing to prove and to leave asap.
