A New Week, But Old Weather

After a night of strong wind the low temperature and the cold weather are back. It’s hard to remember such a depressing Spring. In fact I’m not sure there has ever been such a depressing Spring.

This week I’m going to try for daily posting again. I’m going to make a start by posting this simple complaint about the weather.

The year is now one third of the way through and we’ve had about a week of decent weather.

I’ve made very little progress on decluttering and the well-regarded decluttering book I bought has been absorbed into a pile of books and can no longer be seen. It lacked pace and plot and was generally a bit dull, to be honest, which is why I’d rather read detective fiction and let the house fill with clutter.

I may start decluttering again if I can find a book about a woman who kills her husband because of his untidy habits. Or vice versa.

Breakfast was two sausages that I cooked last night and put to one side. The paprika was an unexpected extra. I was too lazy to fry eggs and mushrooms.

After breakfast, washing up and answering overnight comments on the blog it is now time to set off for the shop.

We have 15 items to pack and send off, including three which were only put up for sale on Saturday. The Budgerigar society badge sold for Β£6.50. This gives me an excuse to use the photograph again.

    We have slightly higher temperatures today (6 Celsius) because of the high winds, I assume. Yesterday and the day before it didn’t get above 5 C and it has rained almost incessantly since Friday morning. We did have a few warm days and sunshine the week before last so Spring hasn’t been a complete failure!
    De-cluttering can only be done with a light heart. Don’t even think about it now!

    I’m with you, Quercus. In Maine, indeed in much of the country, the weather has been weird and hard. I’d like to blame Donald Trump, but thank goodness he doesn’t control the weather. πŸ˜‰

        I’m thinking of the opening scenes of Flash Gordon (the one with the Queen soundtrack) when Ming the Merciless is messing with our weather.

    Another entertaining post, Quercus. When I was a little kid my parents occasionally left some of their fish and chips out. I would come hopefully into the kitchen in the morning. Nothing like a few cold chips.
