Storm Hits Southern UK 28th October 2013

I want to apologise to anyone who read my previous post about last night and today’s storms. It was a little insensitive and has been deleted.
After reading news reports and weather forecasts I was really quite nervous going to bed last night. The wind had already picked up quite a bit and it was expected that Sevenoaks and South of England/Wales would be the worst hit by winds of 60-80mph.

I was seriously expecting to be woken up in the middle of the night by a tree smashing through our window and I’m very very thankful we weren’t. The wind howled quite aggressively most of the night, I know this because I was up most of the night tending to P2! Thankfully it didn’t wake P1 as she went to bed very worried about it.

I feel extremely lucky that the weather forecast wasn’t quite right for my area. I’m so thankful that my girls and my hubby are safe. We have enjoyed having an extended weekend with him which makes me feel very guilty for the families that are having to delve into their wallets to fix Mother Natures disaster!

Are you all ok after the storm???
