A Damp Day


A set of pictures to show what’s going on. Mrs Tootlepedal is putting up a radiator shelf as part of the decorations in the sitting room, the tomatoes and peppers are showing some progress in the greenhouse, the clematis is looking lovely and the brown water in the dam behind the house shows how much rain we’ve been having lately compared with months of drought. The fact that Mrs Tootlepedal’s mind has turned to decorating shows what a turn for the worse the weather has taken in general. Our reservoirs are still pretty empty.

I managed to dodge the worst of the morning showers to go round the early cycle run starting at 8am. We had two end to end cyclists in for B and B and they had had a punishing mixture of extreme heat and heavy rain on their way up to us. I don’t think it looks as though their ride north will be much better.

I’m off to the Archive Centre for our usual Thursday evening work session and then on to the pub for some research.
