I can almost hear the plants in my garden singing for joy today. It has rained heavily more or less non stop all day here in the North East. I have not had to carry a single watering can and I suspect my rain water butt will be full which also makes life much easier. Hopefully the rain will have passed over to the West tomorrow and we shall see the sun again. Simple pleasures but good ones.
It has been far too much for Tess and for me too. I have spent the past three days doing very little. I am not driving until I have discussed my slight loss of consciousness with my Doctor on Monday and I am sure he will tell me not drive for the time being. Taxis into town cost very little from where I live (four pounds) and with my new walker I might be able to walk a little further anyway. And various good friends are being helpful with lifts too. A delivery from Tesco and a batch of Teady meals delivered have set me up nicely - I am just having to readjust my life style.
Looking out of the window at 8.58 I notice how the nights are beginning to draw in. It is still raining and the sky is full of big, scudding black clouds - but it is also almost dark. Dare in say Autumn draws on?
The electrician is coming in the morning to finally finish putting the new lights in my kitchen and not a moment too soon - I really need them now to make that bedtime drink. See you tomorrow.
