I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

Friday letters – the not too grumpy edition


Dear local swimming pool,  Yes, it’s me writing to you again.  I’m just singing your praises once more – it is so uplifting to swim under clear blue skies and with the odd bird soaring in the air high above.  Oh, and the drive there yesterday was wonderful – it was such a clear day that in the distance I could see snow covered mountains. 

Dear Women’s Resource Center,  I went to a talk about you on Wednesday, and found out what a wonderful facility you are for women (and men) who have suffered from domestic abuse/violence or sexual assault.  It’s sad that we should need such a place, but good to know that you exist and can offer such excellent support.

Dear rain,  Thank goodness you have decided to stop for a while.  I see you are on your way back for the weekend, but a few days without you has been lovely.

Dear Amazon delivery person,  Why didn’t you ring the bell, or knock on the door, when you came with a parcel on a day when the rain was torrential?  I do find it very convenient that you leave parcels either by the door, or just inside the gate, if I am out but I wish you’d ring the bell too because often I am actually in!  Luckily on that very wet day you had the foresight to wrap the box safely in a plastic bag.

Dear cyclist wearing dark clothes on a dull and gloomy day,  You didn’t even have lights on your bike – you are just asking for trouble.  I think you must be a British rider here on holiday and haven’t cottoned on to the fact that everyone here tends to wear bright clothes and often have lights on their bikes even when the sun is shining.

Dear Self,  Have a pat on the back for all the filing you managed to do this week.  The files in the filing cabinet are much more organised now.

Have a good Friday – I hope your weather isn’t too wet/snowy/chilly/hot/dry.

  1. Too blue? We’re down among the salt marshes again today and it promises to be a lovely one, thank you very much. 🙂 🙂 The house is in minor uproar while Mick decorates the front room so it’s good to go out and forget about it. Gradually wading my way through ‘stuff’ that I’ve hoarded and ditching it. 😦 Have a good week, Elaine!

  2. We have too wet, but you forgot too windy 😉

  3. there’s a legal requirement to have a front light when bike riding a night… and a logical requirement for one in the rain (but also a law that you have to turn on your car lights if there’s enough rain to use your wipers and no on obeys that one so….)

    i saw that we’re in for another multi-day stretch of rain starting on Wed.

  4. Here this morning it’s glorious – it can never be too sunny. 🙂 It must be such a treat for you to go swimming outdoors in the middle of winter.

  5. I gather that you’ve had a very good week. Our Amazon deliveries are always sc ompsnied by a ring in the doorbell. Alexa also informs us when it arrives. 😃

  6. Ah, Snoopy must have been visiting me! Too wet and too windy describes my weather this week. I am sooo over rain. A lovely outdoor pool in the sun would be very nice.

Now it's your turn - what would you like to say?
