Year in Photos (8-Mar-11)

March 8, 2011

This evening was the first time in a long while that I have left the office in actual daylight.  How great is that. Those long daylight evenings are finally looming on the not too distant horizon 🙂


Year in Photos (6-Mar-11)

March 6, 2011

I took today’s photo in my bedroom, as the Saturday morning sunshine was streaming in through the window.  Beautiful.  Warmth & brightness, lightening up the room and reminding me that Spring might be just around that corner 🙂



Red sky at night …

February 24, 2011

… Shepherds delight – or so the saying goes.  Not that I’m sure what that saying means though.  I know it’s one of those old sayings which foretells the weather but I don’t actually no what weather conditions it is meant to foretell.

Anyway, this evening as I left the office, there was a beautiful red sky.  It was so gorgeous that I just had to take a photo of it.  My mobile phone didn’t really do the beauty of this justice, but it at least gives a glimpse of the scene.


Snow day

February 19, 2011

Well just when I thought that Spring was finally on the way, when the evenings were getting a little bit lighter, when the sun was beginning to shine, when the plants were beginning to sprout, when the birds were singing, when the ….. and the list goes on. As I was saying, just as all these things started to make me think that Spring would soon be here, what goes and happens?  Yes, it snows! Out of the blue, the cold descends and those little white flakes begin to fall out of the sky again.  😦

Much as I love the snow and yes, it looks lovely as times, I’ve had enough for this winter.  I want Summer now, or at least Spring would be a start.   Anyone with me?


Windy climes

February 4, 2011

Ok, so looking at my photo today you might think that it has absolutely nothing to do with the title of the post.  Right?  Because, after all, the title is about the weather isnt it?  And the photo, well that doesnt seem to match, does it?

Well if that’s what you’re thinking then you’d be wrong.  

Granted this photos doesnt actually show the weather and believe me the winds going on outside at the moment are very real indeed.  You’d almost think we were flying off to Oz as I type!  So what’s the link with the photo?  Well if we were at Hogwarts right now, perhaps you’d be able to hear in the photo what I can actually hear at the moment: the wind swirling & whirling around inside my chimney.  And the photo?  Well that’s the fire at the bottom of my chimney.  Soooooo indirectly & perhaps rather metaphorically, my photo does show you the windy climes that we’re experiencing at the moment.

Best wrap up warm & keep a tight hold of that hat then 😉





Bleak outlook (Year in photos 2011)

January 23, 2011

Hmm, well today’s photo of the day doesn’t foretell good news for the week that lies ahead now, does it?  😦  Look at that cloud and the rain and the “cloudy colder” well that’s just the icing on the cake now isn’t it?


Here we go again (Year in photos 2011)

January 7, 2011

And the snow came a tumbling down – again!

Yep, it has returned.  That white stuff is currently falling out of the sky at an alarming rate here & the world – or rather my little corner of it – is similarly turning a rather cold shade of white!  Hmm.  I hope we’re not going to get inundated with it all over again like we did last month.  I know the snow looks lovely & I do like it, honest, I really do.  It’s just that it’s always sooooo inconvenient & it causes sooooo much hassle when you’re trying to get on with your ordinary daily lives.

Right now it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon, so I think I might be sitting at home for a while now.  Working from home syndrome returns with vengeance!  Hmm now I wonder if I can find a silver lining in that? 😉

The snow returns!
