So far - at three in the afternoon - it has been a thoroughly wet day and coming back in after our friday lunch out has meant putting on the central heating for a while because it is so cheerless. Tess has had a long walk with J, her dog-walker, while I have been out and she was very pleased to see me home.
This really has been a very wet month. Sunday is the day that the World Cycling Championship Elite Race goes through and the weather forecast is awful. It is a good job they are all keen otherwise they would have packed up and gone back home by now.
Lunch for me was fish, chips and mushy peas followed by Chocolate Bavarois with fresh raspberries and finally a cup of coffee. On such a miserable day it was good to go out with friends W and M for a couple of hours pleasant conversation - can't beat it.
Not a day to do much now and I shall certainly try to avoid switching on for any Parliamentary News - I shall give it a rest in the hopes that after the week end everyone has come to their senses.
