I realise I am being selfish but the snow made everything quieter and my well-being improved as a result.
Yes, I missed hearing the birds singing but I did not miss the assault of man-made noise. At least the rain kept the latter at bay for today.

Ah, Greetings to you, Madame! Yes, indeed, I do acknowledge this... yet the thing not mentioned before was WIND. That is an altogether different matter, yes indeedy...
I may tolerate Rain. I may tolerate Cold. I may tolerate Wind. Yet all three together is... well, I wear Spectacles in addition, and so... I may as well wear a blindfold during such weather. But yes, I do not use an umbrella in the wind either. What else can I say....
Endymion said:we've had no more than a centimetre of snow throughout this whole 'Beast from the East' period.
That is a good thing to Post, as a first-hand-witness... throughout this whole thing (which is over now, though)...
Hi DC nice to hear from you. You and Endymion gave me a reason to smile!
The mention of umbrellas from you and the strong winds by Endymion made me think about the The thought of you hanging on tightly to an umbrella being whisked up high into the soft white clouds whilst singing along to Mary poppins with just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.Lol.
Of coarse you would be in no danger and after flying around taking in the beautiful views from the perspective of an eagle gliding effortlessly with the warm thermal currents, You would glide gracefully down and gently hover until you touch the soft grass like a feather on a bed of moss.
I myself while watching such a sight would be exploring the virtues of knowing how to spell supercalifragilisticexpealidociouse when I could hardly spell or understand words like spectacle?
I had not yet learnt about reading and writing so that one word was all I had to show how clever I was.
I shall miss the silence and lack of beings very much when the snow was deep. They ruin it by walking and driving through it and making it look like the inner workings of thier minds mushy mess of grey watered slop.
I love it when other beings are asleep,I can explore and have no expectations of me what so ever. Sigh,,,,,,
"...When I was younger, this was all fields..." ;-)
Exploration and no expectation of self and everything else sounds idyllic. Miss you Lone. ()()()
I like the picture you paint with your words. It would indeed be nice to float like that.
Thank You for still being upon this Forum Miss SpottyTortoise. And to LoneWarrior, I do not do the "Mary Poppins" thing, but I do honestly do the "Singing In The Rain" thing... No-One can hear singing in very heavy rain... and it is also usually a good time to water one's houseplant(s), if it is not too cold. Seriously.
Yes we do like the idea of exploration and being left to do as we choose, I like to escape with my words as well, I call it rambling on but I see it as escapism. In my mind a chance to be myself and see a world I So hunger for.
I miss you to Spotty. I miss all my friends on here,
I save my special hug symbol for a select few. X()x()x()x
four happy carefree beings with arms linked in a line dancing as one. Holding on tight as we revolve ever faster in a world that spins so fast without time for reflection or thought for just being alive.
If we hold on tight to each other we will all pull through it even in the strongest Of storms.
Just keep holding onto one of our hands and we shall be ok. Strength in numbers. Ok!
nite nite and take care ,.
I’ve lived in the Lake District a couple of times and I’ve lived in Scotland a few times, many years ago. For some reason, as much as I love Scotland and love visiting, I don’t want to live there but I reckon I haven’t finished with the Lake District yet. In fact, if it wasn’t for wanting to spend some more time with my son, grandkids and the rest of my family, I reckon I’d head back there this summer, but alas I’d rather be around my family for now.
Rain is glorious and dancing in it naked is the bomb
Ah, that’s the same in the Isle of Man, no matter how good your brolly is, it’s not gonna survive their winds! Lol!
