Arlene and two adopted dogs.

Just a blog from someone who loves to communicate with other dog owners

East or West

In Britain we are accused of being obsessed by the weather. and, yes, it’s probably true., but when you live on an island in the latitude that we do the weather is so diverse you just have to keep an eye on it to plan your life, |We can get three seasons in a day far less a year.

One saying is ‘Rain before seven, dry by eleven’ well it’s not always true, but often it is. The temperature can vary by as much as ten degrees in two days. It’s anything but dull.

BUT, my main reason for posting this is the fact that where I live seldom gets a mention in the weather report. They tell you Wales and the West all the way up to Bristol, and South East to Kent and England and as far up as Lincoln I live bang in the middle of the East/West divide way down on the south coast, ten minutes and you drop off the cliff and into the Channel, but do they mention CENTRAL Southern England ? no ! so do we follow what is happening in Wales or Kent? which could be rain in one and bright sunshine in the other. Do I wear a bikini     bikinior take a brolly,? th_brolly

They have forecast snow on Sat eve sunday morning, but they’re not sure exactly how far along the coast it’s going with a snow.rain divide. so perhaps I should add snow boots to my wardrobe th_bootssnow

Oh well i’m as wise as you are, so i’ll let you know after the weekend what Mother Nature threw at me. Take care and keep warm and dry, or if you’r lucky enough to have sun, don’t get burned.


  1. Hi Sheila, temperature is set to rise a tad over the next few days, no snow, but sleety rain, yuk Ruby doesn’t want to go out in it, I’ll have to use some friendly persuasion come bedtime. I expect Wile-e feels the same, I don’t suppose it’s much fun when all you have is a thin coat and no shoes. 🙂 hugs to him anyway not forgetting you too XX

  2. Hi Sheila, and Wolfie, nice to see you here, It’s started to chill out there again after a little mild [ish] spell, with a little bit of sleet to accompany me on my evening dog walk.
    Warm hugs from we 3 and wrap up warm. XX

  3. Probably not wise to go out in a bikiini just now!!Snow predicted for this eve/night here but so far I’m sure it’s far too icy cold and it’s sure fraying Wolfies temper very badly!

  4. Tis true Arlene it’s gonna be cold that’s for sure , well you would certainly look really cute in those Boot’s , yes I can picture it now LOL . Hope you and the gals don’t get caught out with this mixed weather going on. Here it’s turned to slushy rain , very cold and as far I know is going to be the best temp 6c mmm well there you are.
    Hugs Sheila and Wile-e xx
