Not quite to plan

Why do I get sick when I’m on holiday?  I’ve spent much of the last 24 hours lying on the settee or in bed with a hot water bottle and a cup of water as I have a poorly tummy.  Caveman thinks it my body’s reaction to all the stress of the past few months.  He may well be right.  Either way it’s not how I wanted to spend my time here.

Right now however, I do feel a bit better thankfully.  We did pop out earlier to Ripon which is just about 5 miles away.  I had hoped some fresh air would help but it didn’t really at the time.

Despite my incapacity there’s lots of things going on today! 

The main one for me is that today is the final day of Blogtoberfest and I am so proud to say I have blogged every day as intended.  I’m so proud of that.  I am going to write about it properly, hopefully tomorrow.  I’ve also decided that I’m extending my daily blogging at least until the end of my holiday!

It’s also Halloween today!  Are you all dressed up and going out ‘guising‘ (as it’s known in Scotland?  I love fancy dress but I’m not particularly a fan of Halloween.  I’m amazed this year the number of events, coverage on the tv and things you can buy for it.  Oh I do sound old ‘it wasn’t like that in my day!!’

And the other thing that’s happening today in the UK is the end of British Summer Time.  I don’t know if this happens anywhere else in the world, but in the UK we move our clocks forward by one hour in the spring and back one hour in the autumn.  It is quite a controversial subject as many of its origins no longer apply (linked to fuel / lighting use and farming) and it is often suggested that it is ceased, but particularly in the north of Scotland it would have a major impact.  I don’t have a preference for it changing or not, I can’t see it as a major issue for most people, but I guess those it does effect will be quite severely affected.

So that’s me today.  Taking it easy here in Yorkshire while all sorts of other things happen all around. 

Are you looking for today’s sheep picture?  3 sheep looking at me strangely in the early morning mist as I stood there in my pj’s with a camera!

So Happy Halloween, Happy end of Blogtoberfest and Happy end of British Summer Time!

    We change the hour in Romania, too. And my grandparents used to say it’s a good thing, because for one night in a year, you can cheat time and sleep an extra hour…nHope you’ll be well soon, so you can enjoy the rest of the holiday!
