hope everyone had a lovely easter break?? shame about the awful weather. white easter here on good friday i went shopping on my own, mum didnt come with me,was just too cold for her, bitterly cold. saturday we had the most awful gales freezing winds. glad i no longer grow my own plants from seed my greenhouse thermometer read 4 degrees celsious at 3pm thats cold i kept in and did the housework, least i kept warm lol. Easter sunday i got up at 7 it was perishing,grey rolling clouds,and by 7.30 we had a whiteout. it snowed hell did it snow. took some pictures but by 12 it had all gone english weather lol
today has been pretty much the same few snow showers, cold. as i write this,the wind is howling and its a wind frost. jolly weather lol. but it is sad. and serious for all the small businesses. here in north norfolk,we rely on holidaymakers to keep a lot of the small shops going,and easter is important to them. many are struggling now, a few bad bank holidays will finish them.
in case anyone wonders the title of this entry is not just a bad pun.( though as usual it is lol) my garden is being overrun again by rabbits. this morning i counted 7, eating the grass,least they keeping it cut short for me,and as i have stopped growing veg. they arent hurting. if they find their way round to front garden though its war. lol
my 2 ducks,and thank goodness the other 2 havent returned so it is still 2, are now with us all day,they fly in about 6ish quack loudly outside back door (who said bless???? ) until i feed them,go on pond and pull that about, then usually go to sleep under gooseberry bushes. get fed when hungry, usually fly off about 6 good life being a duck when you got idiot like me to keep them fed. but i like them lol
poor mum,cold weather meant no outing friday,has been in lot of pain. foot still pains her,gout. arthritis is biting awful for her. i am still waiting for the volunteer visiting service to get in touch, someone will come and visit and spend some time with her. like everything else with social services, it all takes time. and time runs faster when you get to mums age. take care all
