The weather forecasters have predicted more sever storms, not good news for the many who are still trying to recover from the storm ravages of 2 weeks ago.

Then of course they cheer us up, stating that in the years to come we can expect both and increase in the number of storms as well as there severity.

So with those thoughts in mind I felt it time to reflect on brighter days.

Whatever your weather, take care and….

Great Granddaughter Esmee visited today in full expectation of checking out our Christmas Decorations. With an questioning ‘where is the tree’ we had to admit to being slow in getting the decorations out (mind you we always leave it till nearly Christmas).

But her disappointment was soon dispelled when she spotted out Advent Calendar….she counted off the days and discovered a small chocolate treat hiding in pocket No.6.

 

One little lady well pleased with her discovery

December….. The Days get Dark so Quickly

Sundown-in-December

Sundown in the Derwent Valley, Derbyshire

Maybe it is me, but whilst I have been aware of the days getting shorter as we approach the winter solstice, I do feel that as soon as we pass into December, the pace picks up and dusk arrives far too soon. 

Night or Day, as always show vigilance in these uncertain times….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
