And with it came the tights.
A northerly wind seems to have plunged the temperatures to lows I remember only too well from last year, and with this has come my donning of the tights once more. Not pretty. But warm, so sod it.
Shame my top half didn’t begin to thaw out on my 4 miles of windy negativity, but there you go. It was good to finish the day with a run out. Tomorrow promises to be horrible at work, not a good sign, but there is light in the tunnel. I’ve set a completion date for 11th December, so the house swap will be all systems go from now.
Mountains of packing, furniture dis-assembly, boxing up and panic may leave blogging in a back seat for a while. Might leave everything in a back seat, to be fair – i’d tee’d up two able assistants for the 27th (my original completion plan) but they’re now busy, so it looks like i’ll be loading a lorry and then unloading it with just me and Cathy. I’m not sure i’ll have the energy, certainly won’t have enough time, but I like a challenge, so there it’ll be. Don’t know how we’ll struggle the sofas out alone, though – hopefully with a bit of inspiration and a bit of luck.
Thankfully November’s done now, though. 201mm of rain is a record by 76mm in my guage. Simply loads of rain again last night (30mm) – if we’re the driest region in the country, the rest of you must have webbed appendages by now! I’ll be interested to start recording a new location. Might even get a new guage, if i’m lucky.
