The Moon.




Good Evening, just a normal quiet Friday here in Tayside, cold and damp. I have updated my book journal at last its been five weeks since I managed to finish a book have been very slow of late always very sleepy just now so don't get many pages read.


Why is it every time there is anything happening in the heavens it is thick cloud and we see nothing. Whither it be a sun eclipse or a moon eclipse the cloud always has to spoil everything. Today our Moon is at its nearest for the year it is going to be much bigger than usual it would have been quite spectacular but I don't think we are going to see a thing. I have been very interested in the heavenly bodies since I was a little girl and Dad and I used to watch the phenomena together. I think I mentioned this before, if my wonky memory recalls.You know these pictures you see on the telly of these great big sunrises or sunsets oh how I would love to see a great big sun like that.


Oh I nearly forgot to tell you about a film Stuart and watched yesterday afternoon. We had been for our walk came home frozen and a it miserable so we made a pot of coffee and put on a film we recorded a week or so ago. It was 'Ladies in Lavender' with Maggie Smith and Dame Judy Dench. What a lovely film it is very gentle no bad language a good story lovely scenery it is staged in Cornwall by the sea. It was a great film for a winters afternoon. Later last night I noticed a coincidence it was on Channel 4 yesterday afternoon at the same time as we were watching it. I thought that was very funny although we did not have to watch all the adverts. If you get the chance watch this it is worth your time.


Before I go could I take the liberty to remind you all to order your repeat prescriptions to see you over the festive season as surgeries will be closed for four days both weeks and I would not want you to be without your meds.


Till next time Love

Hi Joan I hope Stuart is feeling better now ~ I have been taking a long time reading I think it is all the work that needs doing for Christmas is taking my mind of finishing my book ~ and I agree about the thick cloud stopping us from seeing the eclipse ~ it is so dark here and not a star can be seen in the sky ~ I watched Ladies in Lavender and agree it was a lovely film ~ Ally x

Great reminder about the Prescriptions Joan! I got to see the moon both on my way to and way home from work last night and it was beautiful There was a halo around it, not sure what that meant but I expect it means something! I think my ex mother in law used to call it a moon dog.

It was also very overcast here so we didn't see much of the moon at all. So, there is nowhere to get your prescriptions for those four days each week? We always have some emergency pharmacies open here but then again nothing ever really closes completely. xx

Good idea about the meds. Will have to check and see if we can get that film.

Blogs I read.
