Yes, read the date above in the title before I tell you that the rain is beating down on the window and also pouring down my drive. I did get a dozen antirrhinums and four lavender bushes planted before it started to rain this morning but I certainly didn't have to water them in - more likely the rain will wash them out looking out of the window.
I spent the afternoon at the hairdresser getting my hair permed - what some women will go through in order to look passable (all that is possible at my age). But it's done now and I am home again. And meanwhile Tess had a lovely walk with her friend H - all round a nature reserve. And she managed to get round before the rain really started. She came straight in, ate last night's tea, which she had not eaten, and is now curled up asleep in her bed next to the radiator (yes, the central heating is on again Derek).
I left the Hairdressers at four o'clock and walked through the market place on the way back to my car in the carpark. All the market had packed up and gone (it was pouring by this time) and I was surprised to see that most of the cafes and shops were also closed up. I had planned to treat myself to a Cornish Pasty for my tea along with a salad, but Andy's shop was empty and in darkness. So I ended up having my usual standby of a jacket potato with butter and grated cheese and a salad which I made while it was cooking. I must say it was delicious, particularly as I followed it with a bowl of Perthshire strawberries - sweet as honey.
Forecast is equally bad for tomorrow and then set to get cooler. Flaming June anywhere?
