I’ve just been reading through some recent and not so recent posts. We are all very different, thankfully, but I wonder if anyone is feeling the same as me?
One poster had remarked on the ripened hips and berries, and wondered if it was the sign of a bad winter – I think that’s an old wives tale, at least I hope so. I do like a crisp, cold Winter day, with that icy blue sky, as long as I’m suitably dressed.
When DH was alive, he was not only a very good and competent motorist, but also had the advantage of driving a 4 x 4. It was a godsend in bad weather, compensating for my flimsy little sports car, which handled like rollerskates on ice! In very bad weather, I’d use his and he would sometimes offer to take me to the shops, because our development is accessed via quite a steep incline from a country lane, which gets little to no sun and would be littered with neighbour’s cars unable to get a grip!
It’s made me start to think about the coming months and perhaps stocking up my cupboards with extra tins etc. in anticipation of bad weather and not being able to get out and about. Not exactly hibernating, as I love being mobile and sociable, but perhaps taking some sensible steps in anticipation?
In addition, I’m not good walking on ice or in snow and find myself locking up and taking tiny little steps - probably more likely to fall?
Does anyone else feel like this and what steps might you take?
