I hope everyone is safe, well and staying warm. You know I keep saying I wish I could hibernate through Winter? Right now, I mean it more than ever...
here. A little before 3am last Friday morning I was awakened by such a heart racing, scary as all got out crash!
Our bedroom window is always open a little and I'm guessing the wind had caught our window and slammed it shut with the aforementioned nerve shreddingly loud crash. This is seriously so not the best way to be woken out of a sleep honeys, it's really not. I've seen way too many horror movies to be woken up like that!
I have to say, Hubby was incredibly unfazed by it, but he's never been a stressed out kinda guy... ever. A dear friend once said that Hubby was "so laid back he was positively horizontal" (lol Miriam honey xx) and she's completely right. The world could be ending and he'd be in the kitchen making a cuppa :) (don't ever change sweetheart xx)
Unforgivably though, other than causing me to just about have a heart attack (not to mention that I already have (way too) high blood pressure so i shouldn't really be getting freaked out like that) Storm Gertrude scared our furbaby!!! There she was all hugged next to her Daddy happily napping and crash!!
She's already a very (really very) nervous wee dog so she doesn't need some dumb storm scaring her under the duvet, which it did, bless her. She shot under the duvet and hugged her Mum, poor baby. Scaring our furbaby was enough to make me very unhappy with Gertrude but look what she did to our garden...
With already shredded nerves and Gertrude, if anything, just getting started outside, we all gave up and went downstairs to follow the storm on the news while it tried to lift our home out of the ground. Of course I couldn't have known it at the time but this was to be the start of a far too exciting weekend :/
Long story short honeys, I have no idea how I managed to get through my shift at work on Friday (I didn't get home until after 11pm) but thankfully I did. The weather continued to bug everyone all through the weekend with (really) high winds, heavy rain which eventually turned to hail stones, sleet and a little snow, which of course was washed away by the next batch of driving rain yesterday :/
As I write this the rain is lashing against the living room windows and the wind is howling outside. The product of (according to the BBC weatherman) Storm Henry. The Met office have already named the next storm after Henry which is to be called Imogen apparently. Did I mention I want to hibernate through Winter?
While trying to pretend yesterday was a normal day and not one resembling the end of the world I snuggled on the sofa under a fluffy blanket with Jade and had fun knitting :) More about that tomorrow though honeys, lack of sleep is really catching up on me. I feel drained so I'm going to go have a shower, get into my jammies and then off to bed with the dvd box set of The Munsters :)
Till next time dear ones, stay warm and safe. Be careful if you have to be outside and hey mother nature, we've all been good, can we have Spring now please? Huggles always honeys xx
