Andrew was so right last week when he mentioned in comments to look out for unseasonable weather that was on its way. After the beautifully warm and sunny week before the days certainly went downhill from Wednesday – cold very wet and very windy, turning into the coldest start to May for a long long time. There was even snow up at Lake Mountain just an hour and a half from here.
Then Elizabeth bemoaned the fact she had to resort to google to change celcius figures to fahrenheit – I’ll let you into a secret Elizabeth…..lol so do I. Australia had turned metric just before we arrived in 1972 and the ‘new to me system’ was so much easier to use so apart from giving dual figures for blog readers I never think about converting. We did learn the equation at school but that was a very long time ago so like many things in my life I take the easy way out now and get help 😊
See what happens when I
rummage through things decide I’ll do a little clear out. This was the end result of the day I found the Mother’s Day card and the ID badge. Things I was going to put into their proper place had sort of graduated to the spare bed, add to that the boxes I was looking through plus the Hoover that lives in a cupboard directly opposite not being put away….because it was going to be used when I’d tidied up the room……the spare wool blanket that lives in the same cupboard just dropped and not returned when we decided to put the weighted blanket on our bed instead…..
It’s not that I have a short attention span – it’s more like I want to move on to other more interesting things – so if that’s the extreme you ‘may’ get to see the other but in the meantime until the mood is right I just glance (and shudder) as I’m passing and leave the room looking like a bomb hit it 😊
I will just show you another little treasure I found in one of the boxes. Many of you will remember my Aunty Pam who I wrote about for a few years . Her slide from a perfectly normal beautiful (in more ways than one) person to one with dementia (Alzheimer’s Disease) was awful to see. I’m still on the mailing list of our local association and this arrived in the post the other week. A puzzle book to keep your brain active. 25 pages with lots of different sorts of puzzles…..all I can say is thank goodness they put the answers at the end 😊
Its Monday morning here, it’s raining again outside, it’s nearly time for coffee then what….maybe I’ll take a look in that bedroom door again ….or maybe……..
What are your plans for this first Monday In May?
Whatever you do ‘May the 4th be with you’
