wave  It is colder this morning, dull and damp with lots of mist and low cloud.

We had about 10 minutes of weak, misty sunshine this morning......then the thick grey clouds rolled back in........boo-hoo !! It is colder than recently (4*C currently). The forecast is for even colder temperatures over the weekend with it being below freezing overnight. I just hope it gets brighter; I hate this thick murk.   frown

Ah, it is getting much brighter now, with a pale blue sky with fluffy white clouds, unfortunately it will be dark soon, so it's unlikely to get sunny before then......fingers crossed for tomorrow, although the forecast does not predict it.   roll_eyes

Chilly (35 degrees @ 9am) but little rain today, so I have hopes!
Its harder to cast concrete when its colder, so I'm hoping that this cold snap won't linger around too long!

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

Miserably grey, dank & colder, it is only 3*C…… frown ……but it looks as if we might see some sun tomorrow although it will stay cold. Looks like snow is on it's way, especially on Monday, in my area. I have been watching small outbreaks happening (on the south coast at the moment) on this site.

We started with a frost and some sun, the sky has gone back to grey again- either way it is cold out.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

While here the cloud cover is clearing somewhat & I can see blue patches of sky showing through. It is much brighter but not really what I would call sunny......& of course it won't be long before it starts to get dark & a lot colder, probably with a frost in the early hours !!  roll_eyes

Keep warm & safe.  wave

wave Just read your blog Elsa. It sounds like you have been through a lot of pain. Take care and try to take it easy for once.  You will not be a taxi service for everyone for a while.  big_hug    big_hug  Get some rest!!

Hi Elsa, I've been reading your blog too, as I do most weeks.

Yes, take care of yourself, being one handed can be very difficult, especially in difficult weather. You don't want to slip again. I hope you can get some help if you need it.

Hoping you recover fast.  big_hug

Well Hattie....on the one hand help is at hand but many hands usually get in the way.  I'll see how I handle it....eeekeeek

It's the one handed typing that gets me....frustrating....crycry

 

But thanks for your commiserations...wave   (only the one hand you notice...and it is the left one..)wink

 

And before I get told off...ten centimeters of the white stuff and very cold...runaway

wave Yes, we have sunshine here, the sky is still a little hazy & the temperature is -1*C . The forecast predicts it won't rise above 2*C all day. I don't care if it doesn't as long as the sun shines & the wind stays away.  smile

Hi Elsa, I hope your hand is beginning to get a little better?  big_hug
