It seems that wherever we are in the World we share weather related problems: drought, snow, freezing temperatures, hurricanes and rain and rain and rain.......................especially rain if you are in the UK right now.
Many people find January a difficult month and I think it is more so when the weather outside is frightful as in the words of a famous song. Anyway, looking through my diary of county wisdom and folklore is a Welsh saying that sums up how I feel about the month so far:
'The month of January, the valley is smokey, the cup-bearer weary, the wandering bard distressed, the raven thin, the hum of bees rare, the byre is empty and the kiln is cold'
It is only hope for better things to come that keep me moving forward. How do you cope with the January blues?
