Monday/Tuesday.

Here we are Tuesday already. Yesterday we had our usual trip to a very stormy St Andrews I just love it when it is like this unfortunately the tide was just turning when we were there and we did not get the real effect of the wind which was onshore . The tops of the wave were blowing off and the sand was blowing along the beach but I think it would have been better around five in the evening once the tide was farther in.


Today it is bitterly cold I think the wind is coming out of the north and is holding the temperature down a good few degrees it has been so bad we have not been out for our walk today. We did do our recycling of glass this morning and this afternoon I had an appointment at he hypertension clinic for my checkup all the news was good blood pressure was normal which for me is fantastic. Stuart is now finishing a painting he started last week and I will potter on here and maybe finish my book have only got about ten pages to read, that way I will get to start a new one tonight when I climb the stairs to bed, hot water bottle under arm for cold feet.
All seems very quiet here today no more new entries to read everybody must be busy. More and more of our AOL friends are joining us soon we will all be together again.So I will say goodbye till next time and go an finish my book. Love
Joan.

That photo is stunning, I love the look of the waves. Glad all was well with your bp. I have no books to read at the moment, must get something. I find it much quieter here on J-Land, it seems to be the same few people posting each time and lots of people have gone missing. It does seem a shame. Keep warm.

It's gotten quite cold here as well Joan, but then I guess we are nearing the end of October so it's to be expected. That picture is lovely!
