The only word I can think of to describe today's weather is 'disgusting' - it has either rained, poured or deluged all day. It has at least tidied up my gardening from yesterday but that is all that can be said for it. Storm Francis I believe and hopefully he will soon be passed and on his way. Yesterday was so lovely it gave us false hope. Today is so awful that I can hardly walk my arthritis is so bad in my ankles. Still - the kitchen floor has had a birthday - I have mopped it for the first time in a long time and by golly it shows.
My soup maker came and I have unpacked it and washed it and - after a bit of help from friend S - have managed to find out how to get the lid off. Friends P and D are coming over 'in their bubble' for lunch (socially distanced) on Thursday and we shall have Tomato and Basil soup to try it out. As Autumn comes on I am sure I shall get good use out of my new toy.
In spite of wet weather outside I must now go and put out my green garden bin for collection in the mo rning, so see you all tomorrow. Have a good evening.
