The day the sky turned orange…

Before I start I’m just going to say exactly what others have been saying all day. The sun looked weird earlier on. It’s all I’ve seen on social media posts all day. It was caused by the Sahara desert sands being blown into our atmosphere by the hurricane that has been going through Ireland today. Although, myself and a friend were saying it was judgment day etc. It was before we found out why the sun was appearing like that. Then my friend pipped up and said he was disappointed because it would get rid of all the awful people in this world. We could still get the end of the hurricane Ophelia which has just gone through the Ireland. I have to drive home from where I am and I can hear the wind, so not looking forward to that because I’ll be going through the countryside and there’s always trees etc falling into the road. If it’s not a tree, it’s half a bush or something. I popped back to feed the cats earlier before it got very windy and even Dave didn’t want to go out. He walked towards me meowing when the wind started getting up. I let him into the room that he stays in when I’m out (have to keep him away from my cats because they aren’t keen on one another). It has to be quite severe weather for Dave not to want to stay out. 

I’m still hobbling around with my knee swollen. I’m going to use my crutches because I tried to cope without them today but my knee felt like it was bending wrongly and straining all the time. I really do not want to use them but I need to not put so much weight on it. I’ve decided to enter my first ever flash fiction story competition for Halloween. It can only be 140 characters, so it seems extremely challenging. I have to ‘stick to the point’ and we all know I’m absolutely awful at that. I don’t know how I’ve done on my GCSE law assignment because it’s not been marked yet. I’m getting a bit better at Maths, but still quite awful at some parts.
