Well that was Lovely …

cow_parsley… while it lasted. It last rained on Bank Holiday Monday, which meant we’ve had an unprecedented fortnight of fine, dry – even warm – weather, and in summer no less. Until today when to the relief of tadpoles everywhere the rain resumed normal service and is apparently set to continue all week. It’s a bit of a shock to the system as I’ve got used to spending most of the day outside – coffee on the bench in the sunshine, editing on the laptop in the shade, a cool drink and a bowl of cherries in the last of the evening sun. We were actually contemplating lighting the fire this evening…

I still live in hope that this was no more than a harbinger of things to come, but even if the summer resumes along more normal lines, we can still say we’ve had about a week more summer than we got last year. After the spring we’ve had – and the winter we’ve had – and the autumn we had – and the last summer we had – we were due a bit of sunshine, and we got it and we even got out and enjoyed it. Can we ask for anything more?

    I’m glad it has been nice for you. This editing on the laptop, does this mean the book is in the final stages.

    Dull and windy with rain due later here. We could ask for a lot more but I think that we’d be wasting our breathe! xx
