With winter approaching, the season for having a Flu Jab has come around again. I had mine last evening, for protection against the three main influenza strains that are currently circulating.
I never even left my car! All I had to do was turn up at my appointment time, check in with the attendant at the entrance, drive up to the nurses’ station (set up in the carpark) and hey presto, all done. Park up and wait for twenty minutes, then head home. All very straight forward.
We had an incredible thunderstorm early afternoon yesterday. There was a lot more lightning than we usually get and the thunder was almost continuous. I like to count between the flash and the sound to estimate how far away it is (a remnant of my childhood, no idea if it works or not!), but it was too much on top of us to do that.
We had a short very heavy shower of rain with the storm but that was all – not nearly as much rain as I expected.
Our cats are usually fine with storms but this time they both were upset. Millie hid in a dark corner, and Mittens raced around trying to find a way to escape. It must be difficult for animals, not understanding the cause of frighteningly loud noises and flashes of light. Humans have the logic process to help us deal with them.

Wishing everyone an enjoyable day 😊
