December 2017 Extremely high winds are forecast due to an influx of sprouts over Christmas . My New Year’s resolution to avoid chocolate is not the only dark cloud on the horizon January 2018 We have eaten the last of the sprouts so the prevailing winds have subsided! The air pollution warning is now on amber alert. Many areas of the country will be suffering from deep depression. This is due to a heavy cloud of debt lingering after a cyclone of over spending during the festive period February 2018 I’m in the doldrums as the period of deep depression continues, for some people it will last for many months. A blizzard of bills are expected and it has dawned on me I need to observe a degree of self control next year March 2018 Arid conditions are felt in my wallet and I’m under pressure to pay off the monsoon of bills. The pressure is rising and I can feel the chill factor if they don’t get paid April 2018 I am continuing my diet so there are nor’easter eggs for me May 2018 My neighbour is expecting her baby so we have advanced warning of flash flooding, which may occur at any time during the month. The baby is to be called Gail. We are hoping she will be a ray of sunshine and not wet and windy. June 2018 I am going to be child-minding Gail so I expect a lot of damp patches and prevailing wind. I hope Gail is temperate as I don't think I could cope with a howling Gail! July 2018 We are due to get a visit from the icy mother in law and are predicting a degree of turbulence. She breezes into our house and always gives us such a frosty reception; it takes a long time before she thaws. I can only tolerate her in small doses, I hope she backs off otherwise I could reach boiling point. August 2018 I’m going on holiday and will be found sunbathing on a beach in Hawaii. I am hoping for sunshine, as I do like a warm front! September 2018 From past observation there will be a tide of Christmas tat on the shelves. I will promise my hubby that I’ll curb my spending on my current account and not eclipse last year’s hail of debt. October 2018 Hubby has issued me a severe red warning not to overspend this year! November 2018 I have reached saturation point with the tsunami of cards I have to write … I hope the postmen do not have another lightning strike this year. December 2018 Yippee! Sprouts are back on sale in the shops. More strong winds are predicted which may reach gale force at times! FICTIONAL POEM Weather Forecast 2018 contest Sponsored by Viv Wigley 12/30/17

Thanks Vera:-) it's so so lovely to see you back on soup:-) I don't know where it comes from I just let my muse have free rein and let her crack on with it lol. I'm awaiting surgery to remove a breast lump in early January as the biopsy I had was 'indeterminable' but apart from that I'm fine thanks. Hope you are well:-) sending my best wishes for 2018:-) hugs jan xx
