Yes, I am afraid we are going through a miserable spell of weather. I thought it was slightly better today - big black clouds but blue sky too and when the sun came out it was warm. I thought ' strike while the iron is hot', put on my coat, put my woolly hat in Percy's cabinet and set off. The sun was lovely. I had only gone a hundred yards when out of nowhere came pouring rain - no warning, no slight drizzle - just pouring heavy drops. I turned round and came back home and sadly that it is for today - it has more or less rained ever since.
I had decided on an easy quick lunch today - so I made it and it was delicious. I made a souffle omelette with two eggs and stuffed it with quickly browned button mushrooms and served it with my favourite tenderstem broccoli. Easy indeed but a lot of toing and froing to get everything ready at the same minute and an awful lot of washing up for my dishwasher. I gave it its monthly special wash this morning too.
My doorbell has decided to stop ringing - or rather it rings when it chooses to, which is worse because people ring and if it doesn't ring inside they think I am out and go away. The electrician came to look at it yesterday and the upshot is I need a new one, it is 'click and collect' and should be here tomorrow so he will be along to install it and it is to be one with a speaker in the kitchen and one in the sitting room and has a choice of about six different ring tones!! So it will be decisions, decisions.
There is more than enough blue sky now to make a pair of sailor's trousers as we used to say when we were kids - so maybe another quick walk with Percy after tea (smoked salmon pate on brown seeded bread) - see you tomorrow when I hope to have more news than I have today when news has been a bit thin on the ground.
