Hello, . Up early once more here ‘. I don’t know why, but it may be the total absence of drumming rain. . Yes, I kid you not, all is drier and a lot more silent today, but it is still a very dark morning with very heavy cloud….which promises that this seeming end to [...]
Hi, . So here I am, writing to you once more to the rapid accompaniment of heavy rainfall, like an encouraging counterpoint to my tapping out my daily post. . I am actually getting quite used to the continuous rain now, after all it is only 28 days since St Swithin’s day….so there may well [...]
