What is your weather like? (2)

Stockton, N.E. What a day yesterday we had four seasons in a day after the bright start then lights on we got the weird orange glow before it turned into sunshine again and a temperature of 18C. No high winds a breeze would describe it, the west side of the country got hammered and we got away with a sandy spray, should be OK for strictly then with the strange orange colouring.

Today up to now brightening and still warm.

Stockton N.E. that was a flash in the pan from my earlier report, the sun vanished the lights had to go on and the sun glasses returned to their hiding hole never to be seen again. The North Sea strikes again nothing to do with the other side of the Pennines storm. Oh well roll on tomorrow.


PS seen sights like that Papa Jo but I was in the Sahara at the time.

Stockton on Tees things started dull and dour though now brightening by the minute. Sun glasses and sun cream later as the forecast tells me it will be sunny and 18C at noon and 20C at four this afternoon.

Now where did I put those sun glasses all those months ago?

Stockton on Tees, the misery yesterday suddenly left as so often happens on the Coast we had a change of weather to sunshine. I had a house full of visitors and a dog who was enjoying herself in the garden, with a very depleted larder and fridge we come to today.

Sunshine, azure sky's, gentle breeze and warm. Do not question it Frank just enjoy, "Yup" I will.

Victoria us men who have reached a certain age, bow the head say thank you and walk through, both participants leave with a smile and one feels they have done the good deed for the day. The Engineers crede, "Way up the situation on the run, make a decision, follow it through, do not upset the apple cart" live for the moment, I do.


Strictly is back!

GWRS sorry missed your message i was watching Strictly.

Some one must read the posts on here because they actually showed quite a lot of footwork. I got on my knees and blessed the Lord of the Dance, there was a Quickstep that not only was a quickstep but was danced to the correct music well done SUSAN. A tango where the feet at least followed some of the correct steps, well done RUTH. Two wonderful routines by GEMMA and ALEXANDER, to me it was being let loose in a candy shop too much of a good thing.

I love the Head Judge she definitely knows what she is looking at but at least gives constructive advice at the same time and Craig got his nine paddle out, wonders will never cease.

Fairygirl Daughter, "What is wrong with people theses days"? There are not enough hours in the day for them to do all the inconsequential things they need to get through. Check phone constantly held in hand no matter what, driving getting on a bus, stopping in the narrowest part of a shop aisle or doorway then being downright nasty when asked to move. Stopping the children in mid flow, WE ARE ON THE PHONE are you blind? Must see so and so about Zumba lessons, must see Frank pole Dancing??? now there is a picture. What happened to sitting talking over a nicely cooked meal instead of a wobbly plate on the knee with bought in junk, what happened to cooking a meal from fresh, it took me thirty minutes from start to finish or twenty minutes to prime a one pot meal then leave it up to the oven for a couple of hours. I watch and wonder, how did we manage without all those whizz bangs, the mind boggles.

Stockton,. Usual North Sea Weather, Wet and miserable up to 13:00 Hours then just miserable for the rest of the day. Reminds me of when I sang in the School production of the Mikado.

The flowers that bloom in the Spring tra la just cannot arrive soon enough, Northern winds that freeze my old bones tra la followed by frozen white stuff tra la makes me all grumbly and gruff, and that's what I mean when I say and I sing, please bring back the flowers that bloom in the spring (a lot of tra la's) the flowers that bloom in the spring.
