Down Came the Rain

At last a drop of rain

At last we have been blessed by a drop of rain.

This has come in the nick of time but there isn’t nearly enough to avoid a hosepipe ban in the very near future.

Family Reunion

We were visited by my brother and his wife today for a nourishing meal of chick pea hotpot (prepared by Mrs Tootlepedal) followed by a triumphant caramel custard and a tour of the garden. This was very nice and they have just gone off to spend a bargain night in the Southwaite Services Travelodge. Chacun a son gout as they say.

This afternoon I finished entering 1875 into the Eskdale and Liddesdale Advertiser index which we are compiling. We started at 1848 and we have entered over 30,000 items so it will be a long time until we are up to date.
