Winters approach!

Looking out of the window I see that it's blowing the trees and raining...not inviting outside today.
Winter it seems has started!
Considering the fact that we are approaching the end of November this should not be a shock but this year it is!
So far I am still dressing in fairly light weight clothes...I have yet to find my winter woollies!
I haven't even had a day when I needed to wear socks....
I managed a whole winter last year without wearing tights, finding wool knee socks were a jolly way of keeping cold at bay!
This year for the first time in the three years my central heating is working well! All my radiators are hot!
But it's still time to get the polo neck sweaters out....
Winter here in Cornwall is not the threat it was in the north!
Living in North Wales meant that snow was a daily feature to contend with...the local school used to send out a jeep to pick up the children in far flung homes...
This week I found some wonderful pictures of our cars completely buried!
Here this is no longer a threat....a tiny sprinkling of snow flakes makes life just a little more interesting very occasionally!
I am now preparing .....woolly socks have been dug out of their summer hiding places...
Yesterday I found a rain jacket I had forgotten I'd got! I have no memory of ever wearing it!
I really do have to get out more!

  1. Today we are lucky, the sun is shining and it is dry.
    The wind however, is very cold and very strong so it looks as though the dire forecast for the coming weekend will probably be right.
    Like you I am reluctant to give up lighter clothes before it is absolutely necessary but have plenty of warm things waiting to see the light of day again.
    This can be a pretty chilly place but for the past two or three years we have escaped snow.
    Here's hoping!

  2. We have been in Winter for about 24 hours. Today started with cold, sleety stuff and rain and a brisk, freezing wind from the North West.

    For the first time, I needed a jacket to go out and kept it on, as our Parish Hall even with efficient heating for our coffee morning felt cold as doors opened and closed as customers came and went.

    Next week is our lunch club - I think I will need winter woolies for that. I wonder where I put my old Army Long Johns?
