shoulder as I was far too hot with it on.
During the festive season we decorate the wings of our mill with ropelights. When I started doing that - about 10 years ago - it was always a mixed
pleasure: on the one hand you'd be looking forward to the result, on the other your fingers would freeze off
I recall climbing the wings of my
mill wearing a shirt, sweater and a solid wind-tight Northface jacket - and still shivering. This year I just wore a vest over my T-shirt and found
myself sweating.. it was 15 degrees Celsius that day.
Also, my grass keeps growing and growing. I used to stop mowing it in september since it had stopped growing by then. Then it stopped growing in
oktober, now I even mowed in november and actually this year it does not even stop growing. Alas, because it is too wet to be handled by my
cyclo-mower I have no options but to wait until it the grass dries again. I sure don't look forward to say february or march; sure, the grass would
be dry enough, but as it keeps growing, it will be too long for the mower anyway and I'll need to resort to using a scythe first
Anyway - yes, the weather is changing. Not sure if that's permanent, if it's within the bounds of what can be expected and if not what causes it and
what we can do about it. If anything. The new climate control agreement may help, but I wonder if we aren't a bit late .. I clearly recall that
scientists warned us about this in the 1970s and we choose to ignore them. I hope we're not too late, as the idea of celebrating Christmas in a
T-shirt and boxer shorts is not really appealing to me..
