Not much sleep again last night, the howling wind kept all of us, Betty included, awake - she was up and down like a yoyo, jumping off my bed and running downstairs every time there was a noise. We apparently had 50mph winds, so not as fierce as some areas. There's no real damage in our garden, pots and small things blown around (hence the noises Betty kept hearing) and some of husband's veg supports blown over, but that's it by the looks of things. In previous storms we've had tiles blown off the roof of our utility room, 2 or 3 times, but not this time. Next door's small polytunnel has been trashed, and their giant trampoline was lifting.....they've anchored it down now. Husband's been out with Betty and said there are lots of small bits of wood blown off trees, and rubbish blown around (it was dustbin day yesterday, a couple of our neighbours are a bit lax with putting out/taking in their bins). The wind is gradually starting to ease off, thankfully.
Well, I haven't become a zombie yet (still time though, Sue in Suffolk 😂) following my booster yesterday, although my upper arm does feel a bit like a lump of hot lead. No other after effects noted.
It's definitely a day for staying home in the warm, I'm going to get on with some crocheting this afternoon, it'll be nice to have a lapful of warm wool! Making burgers this morning for us to have for dinner - with salad, although I might change that to chips or a jacket spud, as it's the weekend! (we relax our low carb regime a bit at weekends, and it's not really salad weather....well, that's my reasoning lol).
I really need to get on with family and friends Christmas cards, I've done all the 'ordinary' ones, although not written in them yet. I've designed a couple in my head already, just need to get the ideas down on paper....erm, card....now.
I am actually looking forward to starting to decorate my little tree - it's the 1st December on Wednesday, so I've given myself permission to make a start then (it's all your fault, Cherie and Joy!! 😂😂).
