Despite the persistent promise of gloomy wet weather, we've actually had a lovely couple of days here. We had a very civilised Barbeque last night on the patio and despite the evening chill in the air it felt very summery. I think the rain's now due tomorrow (and we certainly hope so or Janet's Carnivorous Plants may be getting a bit thirsty soon.) And of course there's no work tomorrow. Praise be for bank holidays.
