    Walk hounds, then off to church Stretton for a morning in the hills 😎

    Later to my parents for lunch and probably the pub later

    Hoping kids football is called off this morning. Windy and wet.

    Morning. Was bright now dreary. Taking lad back to uni. Probably miss him more this time.
    Back to bike commutes next week.


    Sometimes. Maybe. Possibly.

    On/off rain here making the hound walk a bit of a gamble. Cousin having a birthday bash later on but have to drive otherwise it'll take ages to get there and back.

    Clear to the North, cloudy to the East, West and South.
    Not raining yet. Girls are going swimming.

    Woke up to Beans footprints all over the windowsills and the kitchen table in a funny route and no other evidence. Habeas corpus. Haven't completed the investigation yet.
    Suggestions please.

    A light shower day, according to forecast. Just got dumped on inc hailstones. Fort I was not far far away pedalling but outside doing some tree winter pruning so easy dodge. To be continued...

    As for Beans, get the duster out!

    Duster?! Soap and not a lot of water then beeswax polish the dodgy wotsit. I think he probably watched the pheasant who visits the garden regularly and went to the front window, then table then other window.
    He has tried to catch it. First time he saw it, he legged it into the house.

    Anyhoo, friend of a friend bought a Maine co.on kitten for £750 (with a signed agreement not to breed). I saw her at the supermarket. She had just brought it down from Glasgow and it was in a cat basket in the car. Stunning Tabby markings, 5 months old. Big for 5 months. Will be an indoor cat only.

    Godforsaken country. Will it ever stop raining?

    Trip to Kingston, then been watching cookery shows and complaining about the weather. A nice piece of pork belly roasting. We will have it with noodles and greens.

    7 months of rain, 5 months of drought.
    Climate change innit.

    However... some interesting stats here:
