Being British there is always the weather to talk about. In fact I suspect it is our main topic of conversation. It is either too hot or too cold, too wet or too dry, too windy or we could do with a good strong wind to dry things up a bit. Maybe there are one or two days - most likely in Spring - when the weather is 'just right' for us all. And we wallow in it.
Well today was definitely not one of the just right days. You wouldn't call it a grey day - more of a black day. Great black clouds have puthered across the sky all day and the rain has fallen heavily. In addition the wind has been too strong for me to walk far.
Luckily it is the day when friend S sometimes calls to take Tess for a walk and she called today and braved the weather to take her up to the top of the road and then into the field. Tess would love that as I know she misses the grass.
Now, at five o'clock, it is pitch dark. My son has just been and helped me to organise my garage in a better way. That doesn't mean I shall be able to get my car in but I shall be able to use my tumble drier. I think the car is destined to stay on the drive but when I look down the road almost everyone seems to leave their car outside overnight. Do you leave your cars out or do you put them away? I would be interested to know because several folk have told me it is actually better for the car to stay outside.
