More wind tonight, the worst of it (35mph) to hit around 3am tomorrow apparently.
I hope I’m not awake to hear it.
Even though neither the radar picture or the hourly forecast show rain in this area at this particular moment, I would bet money on icy rain hitting the boat five minutes ago.
I mean, it has that distinct ‘hard’ wet sound, not quite as noisy as hail but not as gentle as the kiss of snow.
Maggie is curled up on my jumper, fast asleep, but you can guarantee that if I moved, she would be awake and agitated in minutes. I’m thinking of getting her out for her final wee (if it’s not raining that is) and having an early night.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
