NOVEMBER 16....... 04.28AM
I am sitting on the sofa in the Living room.....wearing warm pyjamas and wrapped in my favourite cosy, cream wrap - a gift from Kirsty two Christmases ago. Lying beside is Boo....shaking like a leaf and heart beating nineteen to the dozen (as my Gran used to say!)...the rain is is bouncing off the roof and every few minutes there is a bright flash of lightning followed by a mighty clatter of thunder. These latter two are the reason I am sitting here with a cup of tea in one hand and the other hand alternating between typing and stroking the quivering wreck at my side.
I resisted getting out of bed for an hour or so, but the sound of this crying, inconsolable dog finally got the better of me...she went from padding around the room crying to lying on the bed crying..eventually I accepted that getting up was the only solution.
Boo senses storms coming a good fifteen or twenty minutes before they actually manifest themselves over us...and of course, the fact that we live in a valley means that the thunder bounces off the mountains and sounds SO loud!
The rain has abated somewhat and there is only the very distant rumble of thunder now...but it's enough for this little bundle of fluff to jump up with a start and need a cuddle every few minutes...time to put the TV on and try to drown it out..perhaps if I watch QVC I'll get some inspiration for Christmas pressies if nothing else!
My thanks to ALEXA for giving me something to think about during my three hour sojourn...yes, that's how long I sat up before heading back to bed...and even then I had to keep the light on before Boo settled again!
If you pop over to ALEXA'S BLOG, you'll find some other 'moments' to read and, I'm quite certain, enjoy!
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
