What a lovely day

Recommended Posts

Not a cloud in the sky, easy fresh breeze, brightness, birds singing, bright colours of the daffs and tulips out.....Spring best season of the year.:)

Disagree.

'Tis the season of development.

Plans, whose slow fermentation suspended their animation in the still of winter, suddenly burst forth, sprouting monstrous carbuncles, crawling with nailgun-wielding maggots, polluting the air with percussive pops and their raucous wails of "got any more four-be-twos down there Kev".

And then the constant hum of mowers and powered arboreal butchery.

Oh once more for a moment of frigid peace!

Hopefully today will be better.;)

humpf.

Developers are taking a day off. Cue upsurge in mowers and strimmers.

Mowers and strimmers are the devil's work. Not only do they disturb the peace, they also remind you of all the gardening chores mother (sorry, must try to be more gender neutral) parent nature is racking up.

Bloody nice weather, it's making me feel half cheerful for once, can't have that. And it means I can't slob around indoors without feeling guilty (I've only popped back in briefly, I've not spent the day sat by my computer!) No lawnmowers though. That was yesterday's noise.

 

edit: It's gone very cloudy and a lot cooler now, good, I can go back to being grumpy.

Winkie:"Lovely day!"

HPC'er: "Raining somewhere, I expect.."

 

 

      Scotland

 

    It was a day peculiar to this piece of the planet,

    when larks rose on long thin strings of singing

    and the air shifted with the shimmer of actual angels.

    Greenness entered the body. The grasses

    shivered with presences, and sunlight

    stayed like a halo on hair and heather and hills.

    Walking into town, I saw, in a radiant raincoat,

    the woman from the fish-shop. 'What a day it is!'

    cried I, like a sunstruck madman.

    And what did she have to say for it?

    Her brow grew bleak, her ancestors raged in their graves

    as she spoke with their ancient misery:

    'We'll pay for it, we'll pay for it, we'll pay for it!'

Not so much as "we'll", rather "I'll".

Having let my guard down to the glass-half-full lucky people on this thread, I thought , what the hell, let's have shave outdoors (it's a thing, trust me).

Got myself all set up, shaving mirror clamped to tree etc, and what happens? The skies turn a nasty shade of grrey and a bitter easterly whips up. Brrrr. Had goosebumps on my goosebumps.

Last time I listen to you lot!

And then I find Robot Wars has been cast aside in favour of the "Masters". Even they've fallen for this lovely weather rubbish. You can keep your wind-swept fairways. Give me a hanger and artificial light any day.

:lol:

This life view is something I come across very frequently in Dumfries & Galloway.

Im just enjoying a nice day and acknowledge that it is one in social exchanges but I bump into some locals who will utter a reply like that...we'll pay for this!

FFS, what is wrong with them? IMO they are failing to embrace the present! It's like they're trapped in a mindset of eternal punishment if they dare to enjoy any nice things about life!

Now the weather is a bit greyer it's fading, still got a runny nose though!

I went swimming in Dumfries once. It was horrible.
