It was rather cold this morning, -9C which for here is mighty cold. Maybe we are seeing the impact of global warming which for the UK could mean that things get a lot colder as the Gulf Stream with its warming effect moves away from our waters.
A normal day at school which dragged on a little as we had somebody come to do a workshop on teaching basic gymnastics after school. It is good to brush up on such things but the enthusiasm wanes at the end of a school day. I tried to join in with the practical work but I could feel my knee and spine protesting so I stuck to watching instead.
I saw an odd sight on the way home tonight. At the point where a tiny lane turns off the back road, to Upcott, was a small table with a pet carrier on top. Attached to this was a sign on a piece of paper but it was too dark to see what it said. I wish I had stopped because now I am intrigued. Was this a roadside stall (sometimes seen but not often), with produce inside the pet carrier to keep it safe from the many crows and buzzards around or was there something live in the carrier? I doubt it but if it is still there tomorrow I'll have to stop to satisfy my curiosity.
The weather man is predicting overnight rain as well as low temperatures so my micra is now at the top of the hill in case of ice.
