Friday morning post

I am thankful that its friday! I love the weekends! This is going to be a good one for me, as I am off to dublin today. I have my PA Frances coming first though at 9 this morning, its just going on for 5 AM here now. She’ll do some housework for me, and I have to go to the beauticians to get my nails soaked off and get some waxing done. I’m not reapplying the nails for a few weeks, I need to give my nails a break for a few weeks.

Once she leaves at 11:30, I’ll get ready and will go to the train station at 12:30 and get the 1:25 PM train to Dublin, the train takes around 3 hours to get there. It runs straight through, so there is no changing trains or anything thank god!

I am just hoping that Nitro will be ok on the train, its been a while since he’s been on one. And he’s older now, so I am hoping it wont stress him out too much.

The weather here is meant to be super bad this weekend, we’re getting another storm, this time its storm dennis. So I doubt me and Pat are going to do anything much, other than stay indoors, the winds and rain will be too much.

But I plan on having a nice weekend anyway. Planning on catching up with pat, its been far too long since we’ve seen one another.

Just not sleeping

Its gone 1 AM now. I am still wide awake. I cant seem to settle down tonight. I feel too wound up to sleep.

I tried watching tv. But I wasnt able to find anything good. I tried looking at amazon prime, and on netflicks, but all I kept doing was scrolling, and not settling on a show to watch.

So then I called my friend Pat, the friend I’m going to see this coming weekend. We chatted for an hour or so and that did distract me from my thoughts and stopped my mind from racing.

Now I’m debating, will I try to sleep, or will I make some tea and read my book for a while.

Its pouring rain outside, the noise of it is soothing to me.

Storming and bad weather!

Hows the weather for your part of the world today?
Ours has been awful. Rain and wind all day. I looked up how many inches of rain we get in ireland each year and seari told me we get 46 inches of rain per year here. Thats some amount of wet weather!
We’ve got a storm warning here and we’ve had it all day since early this morning. It is supposed to be finished at 7 PM but so far its still storming hard!
I got soaked just going in and out of the car being dropped to and from work!
Hopefully some of you have better temps where you are!

A bad storm

We had a very bad storm last night. I was so glad to be snuggled up in bed. It started at around 7 PM. It lasted right through until around 4 AM. There was a lot of rain, and very high winds. There is a lot of damage around the city now because of it. Fallen trees and stuff. It was hard to sleep with the wind. But eventually I did sleep. And this morning its calm again. However we’re meant to have another storm tonight. The one last night was called atyia. Nice name for a storm, I thought.

Weather alert!

We’ve got a bad weather alert here where I live!
There are going to be high tides all day tomorrow and on wednesday as well. We’ll get a lot of spot flooding!
There will also be high winds and a lot of rain!
I have to work tomorrow, and I will also have my slimming world group tomorrow evening. So I do need to go out in it.
They said on the radio that the winds will start up tonight! And the rain too!
We’ve been having so much rain lately!
At least we havent had ice or snow yet!
I can handle rain! I will just stay indoors with my heat on!

Wet weather!

Omg! Its pouring out there! Absolutely bucketing down!
I just let Nitro out for a minute or two, he rushed back in again!
I am so so glad I am not out in that!
I pity anyone whose homeless! What an awful night its gonna be!
They are predicting rain from noon today all the way through until 6 Pm tomorrow evening!
I hope I don’t have to go to work tomorrow! I hope I am not needed! I just want to have a duvet day!
Its kinda looking like it might thunder, hope it doesn’t. Our kids are so scared of storms. So is Nitro!
At least I have heat! I have my heat on now, and the house is lovely and warm and toasty.
