I have decided to keep this image on my screen all day, I opened the door this morning to be greeted by not only frost and freezing temperatures, but also rain just to add that little extra to an already cold day.
I am finally up and about, the back is still twinging a little, but at least I can move without to much trouble. I was dropping my son off at work this morning as I am feeling better. The journey to the car from the front door was treacherous, ice everywhere which now had a nice layer of water thanks to the rain.
We set off and it wasn't long before I found the roads were like ice rinks. I carefully went around a roundabout which was really slippery, the car behind me actually ended up facing the opposite way. I was glad to drop him off and get home for a hot cuppa.
I don't think I will go out again today, the last thing I want to do is slip and end up stuck on the settee again.
If anyone is thinking of going out, please, please, please be careful, the roads and the paths are dangerous.
Todays upload is one from the Tynemouth Lido on the same morning as my upload "Shadow Boxing".
The sunrise was wonderful with a fantastic colour. The birds had been flying before I took this shot, but had landed as the sun rose, it was as if they were trying to catch some of that beautiful colour and warmth after a long cold night at sea.
Shortly after this they were spooked and all flew off again, I am just glad I was lucky enough to get this before they went.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
