    Ive noticed a problem with the original thread, taking me to page 1 of the thread. Assuming its the same problem as my original Brexit thread (stolen by WMC lol) that there were too many pages, i have started another weather thread (stolen from lightbodyae55 lol).

    The only person who got all his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe.
    Anything i post over three lines long please assume it is an article lol.

    damn frosty first thing white over and took 10 minutes to defrost car. even longer to get my knees and back moving.

    but its brightened up nicely quite sunny in that annoying way when your driving and its under the visor even when down.

    still cold though.

    Marvellous morning – cold, crisp and cloudless.  Still sunny out there now, and not much warmer.  My car still looks like an iceberg.  Still, I’m not going anywhere, so . . .

    Sister rang last night – mother’s back in hossie with another UTI ‘delusion’ episode.  Apparently she was fine all day and then suddenly said she felt strange, sat down and was then convinced that my sister was her mother.  So off she went to the JR in an ambulance – nobody could go in with her this time, though, due to Covid rules.

    I just called my older brother – he and sister have literally just got back from the hossie and apparently mater’s a fair bit better today and might even get to come home again tomorrow pm, but they’re taking a few things in in the morning in case she has to stay in a couple of days longer.

    I wish the docs would sort this out properly.  Apparently mum has been back into the JR twice with a recurrence of the same UTI since the last ‘episode’ (non-delusional each time), but clearly it was so unremarkable that nobody thought to let me know at the time.

    My lot are a bit stoic about things like Hospital trips and dreadful health conditions. 🙂

    Sincere sympathies, Georgie. Know exactly what you and your Ma are going through. Mrs T’s mum had the same side-effect to a UTI – marching band in the kitchen, Spitfires taxying in the lane outside. Easily solved but disturbing when it happens.

    Another glorious day – cold and clear.  Still -1.2c at 11am, but it’s snuck up to +2.1c in the last hour.

    Thanks for the kind words, Tharg.  They were really reassuring the first time she was hit with this, and they’re appreciated again now. 🙂

    Mum should have had a CT scan this morning, so we’re waiting to see what that will tell us, if anything.  Sister will call when she gets back from visiting this afternoon.

    Another cracker of a morning – All Sunshine and crunchy grass.

    Hossie couldn’t find anything unexpected on the CT scan so they packed her off home with a wheelbarrow worth of antibiotics and the reassuring medical advice given in a cheery voice – “Take them for three days and keep the rest for next time”. 🙂

    Still, she’s home.  I’ll try to go up and see her next week.

    Same as. Bright, clear, cold. Doing -2C at 5.30am (bad night). Now hovering around 5/6C. No wind (centre of high-pressure thingey) so feels warmer.

    Glad your ma’s OK, Georgie. At least she got out of Infection-Central promptly!

    Beautiful sunny day 7*c, no wind, feels like a spring day.

    Has anyone noticed how little rain we are getting?

    Has become same as you, Brydo. However, I did notice lack of rain until about 3am when it chucked it down so heavily it actually woke me up!

    My son and my daughter-in-law went walking on Dartmoor yesterday with our border collie, and then slept on Paignton beach in their Mercedes Vito XL minibus. It’s perfectly set up for the two of them and provided a warm comfortable night’s sleep followed by an amazing sunrise which they watched while drinking hot coffee and cooking bacon butties on their stove. Early morning walkers commented on them “living the life” in the middle of January.

    I was baby sitting for them, and my grandchildren slept in after a later than usual “film night”. So I fortunately missed the sunrise!😀

    Bright, cold (+2c at 8am) and really quite cheery. Seems set to remain so for a few days with temperatures maxing at 8C . No complaints.

    Another glorious morning.  If the car defrosts (it should get up to 5c), I might even go for a drive after lunch.

    Regarding Sunrise fry-ups – my first ‘serious’ boyfriend also had a maroon and white VW camper (not split-screen, alas) that took us all around Wales over three weeks when I was 18.  Park, walk, eat, drink, sleep . . .

    Great days!

    Sunny dry 11*, strangely a strong gust of wind picked up but only for a few minutes..

    Few days away, nice break ☺️..

    Sunrise this morning was in bands of turquoise, pink, and ‘robins egg’ blue – the national flag of Kittentopia, I believe. 🙂

    After that a right mixed bag.  Sun, rain, Sun, black clouds but dry, now more clear skies.  Ready to drop to -2 of lower tonight.

    Garden was visited by a pair of goldfinches this afternoon.  Haven’t seen those for a while.

    Much the same here. Cloudy and bright. Chucked it down just as Mrs T set off for her constitutional. Came back early, wet and grumpy. Said to be cold and clear tomorrow which is good because we have to drive Tilly-dog to specialist vet some 30 miles north of here for attention to chipped bone in leg. Was not wanting to do the drive in freezing wet.

    Clear frosted covering, hardly a breeze, window open looking out birds at the feeders too, great long sleep I needed so much 😊.

    Mrs Ajn still blissfully sleeping, I’ve been watching her too, peaceful morning today will be a fine day, hope the same for others 👍👍

    A  lot more grey than of late. But also a lot warmer. Said to brighten later.

    Weather ‘meh’ but dry.

    Main drain under the road is blocked again.  Thames Water said wait for engineers was “up to 74 hours” so they had better come today.  This is the third time in six weeks for the same problem.

    Also, lots of fun new pain and extra nerve pain around the implant.  Will be seeing the Specialist on Thursday, but meanwhile I’m back on the pain pills (make me sleepy) plus Amitriptyline for the nerve pain (also makes me sleepy), so I’m a bit ‘out of it’ at the moment.

    Ho.  And, indeed, Hum.  🙂

    Sorry to hear that the drains are playing up again @Georgie

    Overcast here as well. I’ve just come back from a shopping trip to Ledbury. I did a click and collect ALDI shop this time and it was both very good value and truly excellent service. They even loaded it into my own bags in the boot, I didn’t even have to get out of the driver’s seat.

    Overcast but mild and no wind. Very little rain for this time of year, i feel a hose pipe ban this summer.
