Well, that was quite a day, wasn't it? I'm not sure what was worse, the strong winds or the teeming rain and both together were - powerful. I gather it's wasn't just the UK - Europe has had problems too. One of the major storms, for sure.
No damage here as far as I can tell, although over the cul de sac had some fencing down.
Beth wisely decided not to venture out and over here so the higgidy pie went back in the freezer (It hadn't started defrosting) and I hunkered down with knitting, Kindle and telly to have a cosy day inside. It's funny how much cosier one feels when the weather is doing nasty things outside. Thankfully, as far as I am aware, I have had no damage - even the bird table has stayed upright - but I have to check the roof tiles once it is light. Next door seems to have lost a very small corner panel of their fence and over the road there's a couple of panels down but apart from that, things seem OK round here.
Today we are supposed to be having strong winds still, some hail and then rain showers later on.
Apart from the weather, it's the usual Monday things - knitter knatter, helping in FS and tuition. A little bit of clearing up might not go amiss either. That's enough to keep me out of trouble, for sure. I'm supposed to be meeting Jeff at the allotment this morning so he can carry on with the heavy diffing but it will be so waterlogged, I've emailed him to say if he'd rather not, don't worry. We can reschedule.
Now the jumper is finished, I've gone small and am making a pair of fingerless gloves with some gifted sock yarn. The needles may be very fine but it grows quickly enough and it's nice to be making things that don't take a fortnight or more to complete. The pattern book also has a pattern for socks and I might have a go at them too. It's good to have thicker socks when indoors or when wearing wellies.
What are your plans? Have a good day, whatever they are, and I hope all is well with you and yours.
