Unbelievable that this time next week it will be May! Nearly half the year gone.
Looking outside the weather looks pleasant in the sunshine but in reality the easterly breeze is strong making it feel cold. Does not effect the hedgehog, frequently seen during the night entering local gardens but possibly having trouble since no rain for a few days.

A continue of the tale

The beginning of the week saw a big increase in garden bird activity but the last two day has slowed in conjunction with a strong easterly cold breeze.

Wrong again.

Weather and accompanying forecasts are very unpredictable at the moment. Both differs then expected. Today was to be sunny and warm but the morning we got was cloudy and cold.


Another cold day although the weather forecast indicated it to be warmer day. Still damp with heavy mist so no change there. This must be at least 7 days now we've had very damp mist.

Visited Trimdon Grange this morning. Roads busy and the local supermarket and meat wholesalers seemed packed.

COld & Damp

I was going to continue working in the garage today but after yesterdays freezing weather and today looking and feeling not much better, I've decided to work on computer projects. Managed to finish the electrical job in the garage yesterday but had to stop other work at 17:00 due to the cold. See how it goes today and the weather tomorrow before planning anything else.


By the end of yesterday I managed to unload waste, consisting mainly of cardboard and household window units at the recycle centre, plus household metal scarp at the scrap merchant. Then as the day got dark empty the remainder of the van contents, mainly rubbish again, before tea and before I froze.

This morning I continued emptying the van for a time before dinner and deciding to finish for the day due to the cold. Now going to have a long 5 minutes and warm up.


Snow! Well that was not forecast last night for this morning. An inch or more has fallen and lying this morning here and very, very cold too.

New Month

The start of the last month of the year and it is frightening. Time passes so quickly now as I get older. Also feels like deja du as today we find the Covid outbreak, diminishing in the summer, is suspected to get frighteningly worse due to a new variant.

Weather warmer yesterday has felt colder this morning, forecast even colder tomorrow before a few degrees warmer on Friday. Now yesterday the forecast was for a warmer weekend but now it's the opposite with temperature not to increase above 5C all next week. Do they really know?

Very cold.

Another very cold morning. Freezing in fact, plus it feels even colder than yesterday. Very icy underfoot, care needed while walking on the paths. Still snow lying, especially in the fields and park.

After the storm


Very cold but clear blue skies at the moment. Decided to stay in and do exercises at home rather than a walk. I'm definitely getting soft.

A lot colder.

Past week in general, though I thought otherwise, the temperature outside has been above average. This morning I suspect it is below average. It feels it anyway as the breeze that is suspected to pick up during the day, is coming from the artic. Through daylight hours the expected temperature will be between 3C - 7C.

Very first thing this morning the weather looked beautiful. Even warmish. Now more cloud has arrive, darker and feels cooler. Well, could be worse I suppose. Photo: pumpkins on tree log.

Felt the cold this morning and it's only mid November. What's it going to be like when it gets really cold and the snow starts falling. I can see myself like a big teddy bear wearing umpteen jumpers and coats to keep warm.

StEdmunds Church, Sedgefield


Good job I went out this morning. Turning dark, colder and a persistent drizzle at the moment.

StEdmund Church & grounds.

Fresh morning.

A cold, frosty, sunny and fresh morning. Walk was nice though. Even saw a ladybird …….. in November!

Cold n' busy.

Too busy to walk today. At least busy I forget about the cold. Getting old and moaning too much.

Weather not bad this morning. Slightly more cloud than yesterday against the blue sky with minute drifts of drizzle appearing now and then. Still relatively cold.

A bit of exercise at home rather than a walk this morning before continue working on computer.


It's the 1st November so it is not surprising it is cold this morning. Very cold in fact. A fairly strong northernly breeze is making it worse too. I just wish it wasn't cold. I'm becoming very soft.

No news at the moment from the printers on a delivery date for the Sedgefield Calendars. Hopefully see later this afternoon if any update.

Miserable Weather

It's looking a bit awful outside from my window this morning. Strong breeze, low cloud, damp, fairly dark mixed with the odd spit of rain. Oh I forgot, leaves falling like snow. A day definitely staying at home.

Web Work - cont.

After a morning out, taken up for personal reasons at Gateshead, back now continuing on designing and software work to be applied to web store. The date is still valid for all to be completed by the end of this weekend.

Weather not good here this afternoon. Decent morning but rain is falling made worse by a breeze and falling temperature. It is now Autumn now, so to be expected.
