Well, we finally were able to food shop yesterday (Friday). I struggled with exhaustion the whole week. Everyone living on the east coast of Norfolk and Suffolk was on high alert – we were expecting flooding in certain lower lying areas and people were advised to evacuate. Except, some refused to leave their homes. Fortunately, there hasn’t been any flooding in those places (yet). The danger is not yet over. Thankfully, we live on a hill safe from flooding. Yesterday, we saw a fine sprinkling of snow and moderate ice, after temperatures became freezing. Up to now the winter has been a mild one round here.
I love flowers. In a former life I had fresh ones every week to decorate my dining room/living room. They were modest bouquets bought from supermarkets in Germany where I used to live. I was an expat for almost eleven years in total! A lady I worked for, who was in her 70s would usually receive a bunch of them too, from me, once a week! She didn’t have any close family and I liked bringing a smile to her face. She called me her Blümchen Mädchen (Flower Girl).
I hope you enjoy the flowers below. I took the photographs myself whilst in the supermarket. The employee, an elderly gent, standing by the door, wouldn’t stop staring at me. I said, they’re lovely aren’t they? and there was a small smile in reply.
Have a Beautiful Weekend my friends, keep warm if it’s cold out there where you are!
