This morning we had sunshine - first time since we got back from France. Swimming in the Mediterranean seems very far away now! Every morning this week it has rained and Lucy and I have been for our walk under dripping trees and grey, misty clouds. The garden, never a candidate for Homes and Gardens magazine anyway, seems to have given up the struggle for this year and is bedding down for the winter already.
Admittedly, it's nearly the end of September but, hey! some of us are still waiting for summer!
AND to make matters worse, not content with their 'Back to School' campaign before the summer term is over, shops all over the country are now laden with Christmas-related goods! Whatever happened to taking life as it comes?
