EveryDay stuff

It’s Christmas…….

I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

I hope that everyone has a lovely day.

My thoughts are…..

……with those whose work takes them away from their families at this time of year, whether they be the emergency services, the nurse and doctors, those serving for their country, those on Oil Rigs or gritter drivers.

……also with those who have lost loved ones, especially those who are facing their first Christmas without them…..remember the good times with them, raise a glass to them and have the happy Christmas they would want you to have if they were still with you.

……and those who are volunteering to help others during this period.

EveryDay stuff

Beautiful winter……..

I love winter here in England (I like being inside warm and cosy rather than outside in the cold).

I love how pretty the frost is on the ground, on the trees and other objects.

I think snow is stunning to look at when it’s settled on everything.

Why is it, we’re in one the most beautiful times of year (in my opinion anyway), yet it’s also the most lethal.

I work in Highways and have nothing but the utmost respect for my colleagues who, go out on untreated roads to make it safer for us to drive on them.

These guys have to drive to their designated council depot (at anytime day or night). When they are on call, they cannot really plan anything….just in case. If they do they’ve got to be able to get to the depot when needed whether it be 8pm at night, 3am in the morning or 1pm in the afternoon. Last weekend with the snow, the guys went out 8 times over Saturday and Sunday.

They in turn have to drive the gritter lorries on untreated roads….each run takes around two hours.

It make my blood boil, when people complain that the roads haven’t been gritted, because they can’t drive as fast as they would on a dry day just because they haven’t seen a gritter, doesn’t mean to say the guys haven’t been out, when they’ve all been wrapped up snuggly in bed asleep after their night out drinking.

So a big thank you to those guys who want to have a drink this Christmas but can’t, the ones who (may)have to go out at 6pm Christmas Day, the ones who want to have a drink to celebrate new year but can’t……because they are on call for gritting to make it safer for us to use the roads…..

EveryDay stuff

That snivelling time of year……

Every morning for the last few days I’ve felt like a cold is trying to find its way out. I either get better during the day…yesterday or worse…. Wednesday.

Today I’m starting off really bad……I don’t like it!

I have friends with young babies and others with elderly parents…’s not fair on them to be around them with whatever bug this seems to be.

I was asked the other day by Tesco pharmacy if I’ve had my flu jab……she wasn’t quite sure of my reaction of….no I haven’t, and by how I’ll my parents were from it, I’ll give it a miss. My parents still haven’t got over theirs, and they had it weeks ago.

Fingers crossed this won’t develop into anything worse as we are so close to Christmas and I finish work on 20th December and go back on 2nd January.
