This was our view at 8am this morning.It lit up our facing rooms,and within 10 minutes,it had changed to dull,grey and rain..and it’s still the same at 2pm. but what a sight,while it lasted ….
Our local paper has a full page showing photo’s sent in by readers over the past couple of days,and all due to warm tropical air coming from North Africa and Southern Spain..according to our Weatherman..


Mild but wet and windy weather predicted up to Christmas..let’s wait and see,shall we ?
I’m just glad I’m an early riser..:o)

Stunning! One reason to get out of bed early. I'm usually just getting to my bed just before the sun is up at this time of the year!

We had a sky like this Saturday afternoon round about 4pm.We were at a rugby match, spent more time looking at the sky than play on the field!!!No camera with me.

Thanks Scottish,you won't see much of daylight at this time of year then..what time do you start..about 10pm ?

I'm with you on the sky watching Val,but not the Rugby..but glad you saw some of the match :o)

Thank you Hywel,I agree..morning is the best..at least I'm wide awake,and then it's all downhill from there ! Lol.

Thanks Driad..they have been spectacular in most places lately..naughty girls without your camera's..:o)

That's a shame Pam ,..if I hadn't gone in the bedroom,and saw the Duvet cover looked pink (it's cream) ,I would have missed it too..just grabbed the camera and ran ! :o) The ones you saw,sounded spectacular x

It has been mild here too. We even had midges in the garden........not that that is a welcome sight, but your beautiful sunrise would be.

12 Dec, 2013

 

Thank you Rose..do you want me to wake you up as well,with an early morning call ? Lol

Thanks Dd..oh my,that is a lot worse ,not getting off to sleep till that time!I'm fine going to bed,but just seem to wake up almost at the same time every morning..sometimes earlier than 5am..being darker in the mornings,doesn't make any difference..very quiet here too,so nothing disturbs me..hey ho !

There was an amazing deep red sky over London a couple of sundays back. It lasted about 2 hours and was the most brilliant and long lasting for a long time. The next few days were mild and sunny . Lovely pictures Bloomer. I didn't think a winter dawn could be so brilliant.

Thank you Dorjac,we have been treated to some lovely sights,both mornings and evenings this past couple of weeks..and a very welcome sight they have been at this time of year..

16 Dec, 2013

I got woken at 05.15 this morning with the sound of Megan cat purring by my ear ... I was not amused ... neither was she when I pushed her away!

21 Dec, 2013

 

That time seems all too familiar to me,Shirley.:o(sounds like you and Megan weren't the best of friends this morning then ?Lol..I had a lie in till 7am ! all because it was 2.00am before I nodded off,owing to the gale force winds,rattling the letter box twice,till OH put the proverbial sock in it ..shut the air vents off in the windows,owing to a damned building alarm keep going off.... "such fun " ..not ..
Thank you for your lovely card,and have a great Christmas ..xxx
