Dear Diary: May 24th

Here we are with only a week left in May and we are heading for another cold spell.
We walked along the prom earlier today and a lot of the sand that was bought ashore has been relocated by the tides already.
According to the weather forecast, we are due for a storm tonight, and judging by the way the water was churning, we won’t be surprised.

We’ve tied up our tomato plants just in case of heavy winds, and as Maggie performed in the back garden at 8pm, we decided to have an early night.
This is two fold actually as it saves getting chilled should the temperature drop and also settles her before any bad weather hits. She chased a crow this afternoon and over extended herself, so we’ve given her a small dose of metacam to take the edge of any pain she may be feeling, and she’s contentedly snoring at the moment.

The sky is darkening to that purply grey that denotes stormy weather, and if it develops into a thunderstorm, then the internet router and our transformers will be unplugged as a precaution.

I took the above from our pontoon when we were on the marina.
We watched the storm roll in and actually round us!

It’s just started to rain, should’ve guessed really as Hubby cleaned the windows yesterday.
Glad we got all the washing done and dry outside earlier today.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    It seemed like spring for a bit today but it will be around freezing tonight. Remind me again why I live at the top of the world? Where is our share of global warming?
