I gather there is a shortage due to EU tariffs! LOL! Or maybe global warming is to blame!
No, I've never heard of it, but had a quick look on the internet and it's on youtube. I will NOT pick up a hairy toe again when out shopping!
Oh my goodness! Do you know the poem ‘The Hairy Toe’? - not for those who do not like the moaning of the wind!
You are right, I sold my last house as it was on a slight hill, it also had a chimney, and the wind whistled down there, one day it was so bad, I turned on the TV and vacuum cleaner for hours, just so I couldn't hear the wind.
Oh dear - you wouldn't like it here - when it blows it really blows and it's noisy! I would love to sleep right through the night. Why is it that some people just close their eyes and they are out for 6 hours and some of us are lucky to get an hour? Not fair!
I know. Now it's completely different, I never sleep through the night, and I am terrified of the wind especially at night, I hear everything.
Irene - that's amazing. I remember waking up about 4am. There was no power and the noise was like an express train. I looked out of the window and the sky was a mustard brown colour and all I could hear was 'crump, crump, crump' as one after another great trees went down.
I must admit, I did too. When I woke up in the morning, I thought some sort of war had broken out, as there were branches of trees all over the lawn, plus a fallen tree across the lane 20 yards from our bungalow.
That was dreadful - and Kate slept through the whole event!
Definitely! 1987 was bad enough.
The Daily Express (enough said!) reported it as people thinking it was the 'end of the world' - obviously still playing that game we had at school 'End of the World at 3pm on a Friday' (which we always hoped for as it was double French!)We still have the orange sky now - I'd rather that than be on the south west coast of Ireland!
We had exactly the same down here Bren.
