As we seem to be lacking the Summer heatwave which has been (forgive the pun,) warmly anticipated since approximately April, today heralded the start of what felt like mid-Autumn. The wind was howling outside, the temperature dropped and it was the type of day where you want to spend the afternoon wrapped in a blanket, with the heating on,toasty warm, sipping a mug of hot chocolate with marshmellows, watching a film and cuddling up to the person who you hold most dearly, well, who you hold most dearly most days of the year.
Today is not such a good day for me. The cooler weather has affected my joints, causing them to seize up if held in the same position for a couple of minutes,making them more painful and the pain has started spreading, currently to my hands.I feel a wee bit sorry for myself if I’m being completely honest. Mr RR, however is being stalwartly optimistic, pointing out the silver linings and trying to keep my spirits up. I don’t know what I would do without him.
