My grandmother wasn't into Shakespeare so, rather than much to do, she always said, "A lot of to do about nothing" when we exaggerated something. If she'd heard of the "drama queen" expression, I'm sure she would have used that instead. This morning when I looked out the window and saw the lovely day that had dawned after my prophecy of doom yesterday, I muttered her expression to myself and added, "Drama Queen" for good measure.
Yes, I had made a lot of to about nothing. Sure, the temperature dropped and yes, there was a bit of wind and rain. But it all came to nothing.
Driving down the road I couldn't even see any leaves and branches across the road, let alone the fallen trees I had imagined. Rather it was a typical autumn day, coolish and a little breezy but a clear blue sky and mild sunshine which strengthed during the day just enough to cast a shadow.
The sheep couldn't have been happier by the look of them - and neither could I!
