Here we are another week of joy and fun as we head towards the end of January. The weather is more Wintery finally after all the mild stuff we have had. I do love it to be dry and crisp for a walk and not mud up to my ankles.
Our Clematis has been very confused and is still in bud despite the frosts over the past few days. It will be interesting to see if they actually flower or die off due to Jack Frost kissing them. Anyway, it is nice to have some Wintery weather, because in the UK we are fortunate to have four seasons. This week, is going to be the lull before a medical storm so to speak, because next week we have two medical things happening and both are going to be life changing in different ways. Keith is having his Hernia repair operation (if it is not cancelled) and my daughter is having her third child. I will post more on both of them next week. This week began pretty quiet, after a lack of sleep over the weekend. Honestly, I do not know how he did it, but on Saturday night, Keith was tossing and turning in pain. He was moaning and groaning, which meant I was laying there wide a wake listening to him, whilst he was sleeping soundly. I even moved him and he did not wake up. Sunday, I felt like a zombie all day and to be honest my mood was not good. I would of jumped down anyone throat if they had said a word out of place. I can survive on a lack of sleep normally, but not on this particular day. Anyway, I slept soundly on Sunday night and woke up late on Monday morning, which then put me behind all day. Luckily, I had made a cottage pie and apple crumble on Sunday, so I did not have to worry about cooking food from scratch, I just had to warm it all through. All the boat chores got done at a more leisurely pace, because I just felt I could not be bothered to run around. The main thing in cold weather, is to keep the boat warm, especially as Keith feels the cold.
