“Have we fast-forwarded to Autumn?” I asked my husband one morning, upon looking out the window and it was grey, wet and cold. I actually put on one of my thick cardigans which I’ve kept away thinking I won’t be needing it this summer. Yes, it definitely feels like Autumn is back this week. Grey and wet have been the recurring theme the past few days.
That’s what happens when you’ve had too much sun and good weather, it slaps you back on the face, as if to say, “You can’t have too much of the good stuff. It’s bad for you”.
Thankfully the weather seems to be improving again. Ever since I’ve moved here, it’s been part of my routine to check the daily forecast, although yes, I know you can never really rely on it, especially down here in Cornwall, where the weather is known to be volatile. Hopefully, the promise of good days will deliver.
I actually blame the bad weather for catching a cold and temperature. I felt it coming. My bones were beginning to ache. Managed to take T to her swimming lessons yesterday. But when we came back, I was shivering and by bed-time I had a full-blown temperature, which actually knocked me down. After helping T get ready for school, I went back to bed and didn’t get up till way past 1pm. By then, I felt better. Even managed a bath and I’m glad by the time T came home from school, I felt actually better.
Word of the Week: Rain
In other news, our trusty old Nissan X-trail’s days are numbered and we are badly in need of a new car. Talk about bad timing and all that. I guess new furniture for the conservatory will have to wait. Ho-hum.
What about you?
Did you have a good week?
