What has amazed me these last few days is just how much my mood and well being is influenced by the weather. Yesterday when I did my annual posting of Christmas cards tour it turned out to be a lovely sunny day, and today it has been a welcome repeat. Just the sight of the sun and I have become a different person! Okay, its weak and emanates no warmth at all, but I am amazed at the effect that it has on my well being!
I went down into town again this morning, it was chilly but not as cold as it has been. Not the ‘creep through your bones’ kind of cold thank goodness after which I usually take a good two or three hours to thaw out from.
I took the camera with me again and took some snaps of the park looking all forlorn and empty of children, then into Tesco’s for a few bits and pieces ( I hardly seem to need much when K is not in residence, I can’t think why!) where I also took some pictures of all the Christmas plants on sale. I love Poinsettia’s they always remind me of Christmas time, in fact if I could have carried it, I would have purchased one. Might buy one on Sunday when we do our main shop and always get a taxi home.
Then into the town itself where I bought a pizza slice from Hartley’s for my dinner (shouldn’t really eat it, and will no doubt be paying the price this afternoon and evening with griping tummy pains and bloated silhouette!) followed by buying another treat that I also shouldn’t have, a ‘Galaxy ‘mistletoe kisses’ chocolate bar (oh well, in for a penny, in for a pound I always say!)
This afternoon, I might read a book or watch some of my recordings from my PVR. K has rung me with a report that one of her friends had been ill this morning in the day care centre and she was quite upset. It’s her fancy dress party tomorrow, and I have asked her to take lots of photos with her camera, so I will put them on Flickr and Live Spaces as soon as I can following her return on Friday.
So, looks like if I want to stay happy and gay, I have very little choice but to ‘up sticks’ and go and live where it is sunny all year round!
