We’ve been having such a gorgeous October. It’s nearly the middle of the month, and we’re still getting beautiful sunny days which I love. Every day I think ‘It’ll change tomorrow, so I must make the most of today’, but it hasn’t changed – yet! The Autumn colours on the trees look so beautiful when they’re enhanced with a lovely blue sky behind them. Perfect for taking photos.

It’s got cold in the last few days, but it still doesn’t feel wintery because of the lovely sunshine. I usually have to put the heating on around the 1st of October, but this year I didn’t need it until about 10th when it did begin to get chilly. I need my winter coat and my scarf now, and I’ve changed the summer curtain at my glass paned front door for the thick lined winter one. I’m sure it does keep more of the heat in, but it also makes me feel cosier just by being there.

What a blessing!

I went round to a friend’s house the other day where a few of us were having a get together. As the front door was opened, I saw my friend Mary standing in the hall wearing a gorgeous coat. It was pretend suede with a pretend fur collar in a lovely chocloate brown colour and it looked really warm but very smart. I said to her ‘I love your new coat’ and she took it off and handed it to me and said ‘Does it fit you?’

She explained that one of our group was giving it away and everyone else had tried it on but it was too small for them. I tried it and it fitted perfectly! It was gorgeous! It was so warm and felt lovely to wear. As I was the only one it fitted the lady who owned it was happy to give it to me! I don’t know why she was giving it away, as it looked brand new. She didn’t offer any explanation and she didn’t want any money for it.

I thanked her and explained to her that I felt very blessed to receive it because with the recent halving of my hours and salary at work my finances were a bit of a worry.

When I took the coat off, I noticed the cherry red label inside it – ‘Monsoon’! Wow! I’ve never owned a Monsoon coat before! I really like their clothes but I could never justify paying that much for fashion clothes. So I feel really blessed and will really enjoy wearing my new coat. I think someone is looking after me and keeping an eye on my finances.

It’s getting cold

It’s only just past the middle of July and it’s getting really cold in the evenings. When I go outside to watch the ISS go over, I have to put my coat on. It was clear again tonight. The current phase of visible passes is coming to an end soon, so I’m glad I’ve been able to see it while it’s had the Space Shuttle Endeavour docked to it.

It should be hot and summery in July, but it’s been cold and very wet. A heatwave had been predicted for the summer, but although we had a bit of a heatwave in June, it’s gone completely now. I wonder if it will come back for August. I find that I need some good sunny summer weather, preferably some of it spent by the sea, to get me through the cold and dark of the winter.
