This Plus That Equals…. The Weather

This plus that equals…. the weather

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about the weather. It’s all anyone can talk about at the moment, will it snow, won’t it snow? Even without the threat of snow it’s all anyone can talk about!

Feeling Calm weather
We had a bit of snow last year


Will it, won’t it? All I know is the people in the supermarkets are panic buying and owning all the bread and milk will not change anything so stop fighting over it the aisles, it’s embarrassing. 

I actually quite like snow and can’t bring myself to get het up about it. The school will be open or it won’t. I will be home looking after the kid or taking to easy on the drive to work.

OK the levels of snow last year were excessive and after day 3 I was bored, day 5 we were all bored and had run out of bread and milk. Though I hasten to add, none of starved so fighting in the aisles and being horrid to staff, still embarrassing. Embarrassing and mean.  

Feeling Calm
My Christmas lights looking pretty in the rain


My least favourite weather type, it’s wet and irritating. 

That being said I will not let it ruin a day out. So many times we’ve arranged to do something and it rains, we live in England after all. If we’ve made plans we’ll see them through, we like to get out and about, so we own good waterproof clothes. 

As they say, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing. 

Silent Sunday
Look at the sun, cheers me up just looking at it.


My favourite kind of sunshine doesn’t actually come with heat. No, no. I love nothing more than a bitterly cold, calm Autumnal day with clear skies and bright sun. 

The kind of day to get out walking at the coast, or anywhere really. The cold means I get to wrap up, and winter clothes suit me more than summer. The cold also means any walk gets finished off with a hot chocolate, mmm mmm. 

I’ll take any kind of sunshine though, I honestly think a little sunshine makes anything better. 

Feeling Calm
Me and my kite


This used to be up there with rain. But I decided to embrace the blustery days and last year at the beach acted like a child and made my husband buy me a kite!

It’s always nicer to find a way to enjoy yourself and if that takes an owl kite then so be it. 

I just wish my lovely trellis had made it through the storms the other night, the roses won’t be the same again. 

Feeling Calm
It was scorching last summer


I don’t handle the heat so well. Unless I’m sat down in the shade with a book and a drink, then I’m a happy camper. 

I like the summertime and the ease it beings when going out, a nice warm day is perfect. But the heat and the humidity, they are not for me. 

I’m still looking forward to the summer, paddling pool fun, beach days and endless ice creams.

  1. Did you get much snow? We had enough for a snow day but it froze so the second day was no fun. The third day was surpisingly warm but by then the ice was getting dangerous. Thanks for linking up with #stayclassymama

  2. Define, “bitter cold” lol. The bad news today is that my car which always starts and lives in underground parking did not. The good news is I just heard a newscaster say it might only be -35˚ F instead of the predicted -61˚F.
    Very cool gif, you don’t see them on blogs anymore it seems and I agree with you about sunshine, but I’ll say less bitter cold (for me double digits below zero with wind) and more one of those crisp autumn days.
    I think you’ve got more toys than pool water in there.
