A tree blew over in the garden today - it just missed The Piggery and the small tree (behind it)! That's Fairy-Magic for you!
I hope everyone in the UK is safe, the winds were pretty strong here today and it looks even more worrying for the east coast and in Scotland.
A lot of the coast around Norfolk has been affected. Keep safe, MaddyHarper.
It's been really rough up here in Scotland. One of my mum's neighbours had her car wrecked. The windows on it were smashed and there are holes in the roof. Some people have even found trampolines in their garden that weren't there the day before.

A few years ago we had really fierce winds where we stay and it was New Year's Eve. We had just completed an extension on the back of the house and were happy with how it turned out. We had sat down to have a drink before maybe going to a party at my next door neighbour's house. The power lines outside the house were sparking as it was so wild and I had told my husband it wasn't safe to even go next door. I was staying in with my piggy George and didn't want him to go out either. The next thing I heard an almighty noise and the roof on the extension ripped right back and caught the vent on the boiler bursting it and leaking gas into the back of the house. The rain was pouring into the extension. I grabbed wee George and ran to the front of the house to get him to safety. I phoned calor gas to let them know what had happened and the guy I spoke to said we were lucky the house hadn't gone up and finished with Happy New Year! Needless to say a few more drinks were had that night as we had no heating either!!
The trampoline video is hilarious with the commentary.
