The high hopes we'd had for going on some outdoor adventures during the Christmas break were soon dashed by the weather forecast. Things were looking pretty dire for the week ahead but we kept hoping, quite possibly against hope, that they got it wrong. After all, it wouldn't be the first time, would it? One can only dream and I, for one, am a pro at living with my head in the clouds!
They didn't get it wrong on Monday the 27th of December, though. There was nothing for it but to grin and bear it and spend the day inside.
As I still had a whole week of freedom ahead of me, I wasn't too bothered about the uncooperative weather gods. I don't get bored easily and there's always a list of chores to be ticked off if needs must. First on my list, however, was getting dressed, indulging in the luxury of time to do so.
