This will probably be redundant before you read it because its clouded over and they're talking about snow on the weather forecast. I'm looking out the fleece to throw over a wee apple tree we planted a month ago which is putting out leaves.
Anyway... I wrote about light sensitivity possibly linked to RA meds last week. The main reaction subsided within a week, but every time I got outside when the sun's shining (even with a hat on) I get a red face. Even just for a few minutes (less than five).
Last night I managed to catch the red face by putting an ice compress on it (one of those blue gel things) and it did subside. A friend lent me this brilliant solar hat (made by a company called Sunday Afternoon) which she got in New Zealand last year and that seems to cover you up quite a lot too.
Anyway it'll be looking for crampons by the middle of the week if the weather people are to be believed. Our poor joints are in for another shock I suppose.
XX to all
