It keeps trying to snow today, in fact it did snow for a while earlier. It has also been sunny and it has also poured it down with rain. Most changeable. Of course, it is now dark – something which surprised me a bit more than it should when I turned round just now (it was light the last time I looked)! One thing it has consistently been throughout the day though is cold.
I shall not complain too much because it was certainly colder this time last year. It has been quite rare for it to drop below 0 this winter so far. In true form, it did yesterday morning in time for the Broxbourne Club Head – every year the conditions have to be truly unpleasant as if there is an un-written rule! As seems to be becoming a trend, I didn’t make it again. The last two years it has been due to the weather, this year it was due to the head bashing I mentioned in my previous blog post. I can confirm at this time that it was mild concussion and not only did I have to leave work early on Friday, but both a doctor and paramedic (the latter a friend) advised rest and a recommended avoidance of rowing for a few days lest I hit myself with a rigger.
So, I have had two long sleeps this weekend and feel much improved on them, ready for the final week of work before the big ‘Christmas Day’. I cannot believe it’s that time already. However, I am going to enjoy the rest of Sunday first with Sherlock Holmes, dinner and possibly a nice hot bath. Oh, and a spot of ironing, but not everything can be fun and games!
