Terrible weather

Isn't Life Terrible?

It all started on Saturday, though that day presented us with bright sunshine all day long. However it was also very windy as was the following day, which was also wet at times. They told us the temperature was about average for the time of year but because of the wind it felt quite cold. I stayed indoors over the weekend. The whole of this week promised to be little different, not a bit like Spring at all. As I write this on Sunday evening I have no electrical work scheduled but if my readers will remember my saying that is often the case at the beginning of the week. Pottering about in the garden or going for walks is less attractive a pastime when it is wet, windy and cool so if the lack of work continues away from home I shall be very bored indeed! Because of my unfortunate circumstances at home I have reluctantly ceased continuing with my domestic projects. I feel I am just being taken for granted so the work has stopped for the present at least. I don’t wish to be housebound though despite the bad weather so I will have to venture out sometimes won’t I? I make it sound like being in a prison and in fact it sometimes feels that way. Perhaps I need an interest outside of my home but I’m not sure what that could be. The problem is that I am still available for electrical work so I have to be free to do it. I have either to retire completely and be available to do something else if that is what I desire but I cannot see the point in that idea. So I bide my time and simply wait to see what develops and hope the weather gets better in the meantime!

  1. “… if the lack of work continues away from home I shall be very bored indeed!” I’ve had to face that problem and know how frustrating it can be. For me, as you know, the answer was ukulele lessons and groups, but it took a lot of effort to face the problem and DO something.

    I am fortunate in that there are plenty of jobs around the house to keep me occupied for the foreseeable future. More importantly, home life is good, and I continue to pray that it soon will be for you too.

  2. Oh Angela it isn’t the fact that I’ve nothing to do at home, there’s plenty of things that I could be doing. The problem is now due to a lack of interest or motivation on my part and you know the reason for that. As for joining a group, well that sounds like a great idea and in fact I have searched for suitable groups in my area online but I am not drawn to any of them. If I were to join such a group it would only get me out once a month and at best once a week (not usual for most of the groups) and the rest of my time wouldn’t change at all. Occasionally I meet people in my line of work who play an instrument and I could invite them to my house and start a group myself. It only solves a very small proportion of what to do outside of my normal routine. The whole idea though just isn’t my thing whereas working is.
