It's cold again here. Everyone is moaning even the tourists coming for Christmas.

Only have Christmas Eve in this week. Out for lunch Christmas Day. Haven't thought about next week yet.

Glad all is going well Barbra. Fancy naming the storm after you :-D

Hope you all have a good evening.

:-) <3

Barbra, that is great that you only need one session of RT. Keep resting and enjoy your Christmas now you are on the mend. What a lovely neighbour you have.

Pat, cold here but that is to be expected, I would feel very aggrieved if I had gone to a warmer place and found it cold!!

Joan No sun here, damp, drizzly and cold. OH's turn to cook this evening so it is bacon and egg, beans and chips. :-D :-D


AnninGlos Report 21 Dec 2016 15:43

It's the simple things in life Joan. :-D

Sunny here today but cold.
We had to go to town as I had a chiropodist appointment and OH doesn't like to be left out of getting lunch in Wetherspoons. We actually had brunch as we were in there early and had the veggie breakfast with added chips. Got neighbours coming in for a drink tonight (just 2 of them) so didn't want to be cooking a meal before they came. Not too bad in town when we were there but starting to get busy when we came home and the bus was crowded. didn't actually go into the shops except for a couple of charity shops looking for books. :-) :-)

Last night out tonight so a quiet Christmas Eve. We are out Christmas day but in Boxing Day. Glad I've got a diary.

Dark and wet today, thunder in the distance. Dog keeps going into dining area to get under the table. :-( It's only 13 C. All roads up the top of the mountain are closed because of the snow. This is the live cctv link to the ski run up Troodos.

I agree Ann when the tourist is going to a warm place and find it's cold and wet. BUT it is our winter and with a little bit of reading they would find the average temp. for December is 15 C, although many days usually climb towards 20 C, and that the rains come Oct/Nov - May. It's is colder than normal but some expect summer temperatures. I feel sorry for some but others are just silly. Last night a young man in a short sleeved t shirt was complaining how cold it was and he only has 1 jacket with him, a thick one for going back to UK. The jacket is too thick for indoors and he's got lots of short sleeved tops and long trousers but no jumpers with him. :-( He knows a family out here so has been offered a couple of jumpers but they belong to someone in his 70s :-D

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas whatever you're doing. Enjoy it, see you next week.

Good to be signed off Barbra, well done. Yes, very windy here today and rain expected later. Popped to local shops for papers and a few bits, the local Tesco Metro was very busy but with people having small amounts we were soon through check outs, which were all working.

didn't stay out long as, our great grandchildren being of the sharing kind, I have the cough they had at the weekend. Well when you don't see them ofren you have to give them a cuddle don't you?

Pat, even when we go to warm places I always put in a couple of sweaters or cardigan/jackets because you often get a chilly snap and evenings are always colder. And surely people know that Cyprus may be warm in Summer but it is not the tropics. Stupid people really. Actually we had a great week there in October a few weeks ago as we had a heatwave and no rain. But we did know thatw as the exception.

Disturbed during the night because of a thunder storm. Nice day though and 16 C.

Had a quiet Boxing Day but now out every night until New Year's Day. Can see the dog throwing herself onto the settee in a couple of nights time and having a sulk. She knows every time one of us goes for a shower around 6 pm followed by the other that we are going out for the evening. She's quite happy with a couple of evenings a week but more than that she gets sulky.

Had a lovely Christmas meal and yesterday I made a veg soup which we had for lunch then a very light tea as we were both full from the day before.

Hope you all have a good day. Put your feet up and enjoy whatever's left in the fridge. Often concoctions made with leftovers are great. :-D

:-) <3

Busy week. Today only 7 C when I walked the dog this morning. We've had several thunder storms this week and plenty of rain down here and snow up the mountain.

Out tonight with friends for a meal. Don't know how long we will be out as Oh's back playing up.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2017.
