I feel that change too Dita, nippy round the ankles and shoulders. I am quite glad not to be in my usual Good Friday place. That church, even with heating on, is draughty esp. as we stand singing in front of big old windows.
This is the second Easter after 38 years that there has been no choir. Normally we always covered Maundy Thursday evening, Friday afternoon, Saturday night vigil followed by midnight mass, and again mass on Sun plus a few hours of practising during that week.
Sundays the church has been open but with 50 seats (distanced) where 300 should be, and those seats are bookable in advance. No thanks, I gave them my best years, choirs are not due back till May/June.

It has taken nearly till now for the mist to clear, in fact the sun is trying to peep through yippee!. It is never the less very cold which is a little dis-heartening, and it may snow next week. Yuk!. Have a great Easter everyone xx

Good morning on Easter Sunday, cold but a bit of sunshine. I have only one gripe today. A visiting ginger tom with an ugly face has started coming round in the hope of getting indoors. I knew Trixie was being extra territorial because a cat was bothering her, and now he is more bold and I have found him once on the back outside window sill and once on the front. I shoo him away with my angry face, and must remember to shut casement windows each time I go upstairs. :doh:

Today it has been one extreme to the other and my heating has been on to off to on again like a yoyo. At one point the sun was streaming in and windows flung open but the downstairs windows only when I was in the same room. Ginger-watch!

Been a beautiful sunny morning, the odd cloud stealing the blue sky only occasionally, but so bitter -- and shock to the system when you fancy your chances for warmth as you open the back door-Cor! Blimey!.

Bitter indeed, some freak changes lately. When we last had a mini-heatwave in March was 1968. That was the year we moved into this house, I was 25 with a year-old son, and my daughter was not even a twinkle in David's eye.

Good morning! A hailstorm last night and heavy frost this morning. But sunny so far.
When the Ocado delivery came yesterday, my fruit orders were out of stock and I'd finished my existing fruit so must go into town for some.

There hasn't been any hail storms here, although yesterday it did have a few light snow showers. Today has been mostly sun with a few black clouds hovering around, plus bitterly cold but without the frost. Hope you manage to get your fruit Vannin xxx

Bright sun and 22ºC today. Might go out for a coffee somewhere!

Still wintry out there, but have escaped the snow so far. I think some other parts of The Chilterns had it.
