Today is Thursday 30th September

Last day of September folks and the weather is on the turn as the temperature in the house dropped to under sixteen degrees! The heating was therefore put on to bring it up to our comfortable 18, which only took half an hour.
Looking out of the lounge window as I had breakfast, it was raining, the fine drizzle we call invisible rain. I’ve written a fair bit about rain over the years!

Invisible rain is the stuff you don’t really see, yet it seeps into your clothing giving you a chill.

Normal rain is basically what you see is what you get…… wet.

Fat rain is the big heavy drops that splatter on your windows and roof making one helluva row.

Stair rod rain is heavier than fat rain, coming down in straight lines, and hurts when it hits you.

Hose pipe rain is the stuff most of us can’t handle for prolonged periods as it leads to floods.

The Experts call it Drizzle, Showers, Heavy Rain, Downpour, and Torrential.

We’re going for a short walk now before it changes category.

Have a good day and keep safe everyone

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.

  1. I hope you had a great day and all! 18 Centigrade is 65 degrees Farenheit approximately). and BRRRRRRRRRRR! It was 40 F when I woke up this morning and I was freezing. Ziggy was too apparently, because he had burrowed under the blanket and was curled up right next to me. I keep my thermostat at 75 F for the winter, but I think the furnace guy programmed it to ‘sleep’ at night or something, because dang! It’s either that or my internal thermostat is on the blink ! 🤔 It’s a nice 70 degrees right now with Fall sunshine and it’s very nice, if cool. I’m sorry you had the cold invade your space. If you’d like to feel a little better, take a look at Wandering Spoonies’ blog about the hailstorm they had. They live in an RV (I think those are caravans over your side of the pond), and the things (fully the size of the woman’s palm! 😲 punched holes in their ‘house’ and shattered the windshield on their vehicle. I’ll grab the link if you wanna read. Stay warm ! You and your hubby can cuddle to generate a little warmth if all else fails. 😉

    • Hi Melanie.
      Yes, I follow her and those hail stones are huge. I hope they can get something sorted quickly.
      It’s definitely cooler now and we have a secondary setting on our heating for overnight in that if it goes below 14 degrees C (57F) the heating kicks in. Eighteen (65F) is comfortable for us, but if we do get chilled during the day, our manual override gives us an extra degree putting it up to 66F!

  2. Sounds like you are going to have a cozy day. Our weather hasn’t fully turned yet, but the trees are starting to color, and it is in the 40sF at night. I’m still picking and drying herbs. We haven’t had the furnace on yet. (We keep our house at 68F or lower during the day and in the 50s at night during the winter.) The house is holding some of the heat of the 80+F days through the night. We are looking at rain and highs in the 60sF over the weekend. I’m going to have to bring all my tropicals in soon. My husband’s basement office is going to look like a greenhouse. Are you going to be growing anything in your greenhouse over the winter? LOL

    • Hi Begonia,
      it has certainly been chilly today but the heating hasn’t had to be on all day. We keep the house at 18 C during the day (65F) and at night if it drops below 14Cor 15C the heating kicks in. We have leeks growing in the greenhouse at the moment, but that’s all. One is getting rather fat and has STEW written all over it LOL.

      • I didn’t grow leeks this year–I use them with a pork roast recipe. When the roast is done, you puree the leeks and the cooking liquid and it creates a nice thick gravy. It gets so cold here that a cold greenhouse is only possible for sliver of the winter.

    We started out cold but it warmed up to near 80 F (26.5 C). The nights are getting cooler but we haven’t turned on the furnace – yet.
