What a miserable day. It was dark and grey this morning, but at least not as cold as the BBC weather app was predicting. My day started with work – a couple of calls, a few documents to review, a few emails to respond to and then I logged off, later than I would have liked, but at least I am on annual leave now. Hurrah! My laptop and work stuff has been cleared away. Out of sight, out of mind! I hung my washing out (with my fingers crossed) and then went out for a run. It started to rain not far into my run, but I kept going. The rain got heavier and I was rather wet when I got back home – five and a half wet miles.
I didn’t fancy popping out for lunch today, so raided the fridge and cobbled something together. BB was quite happy. I then got stuck into some chores. It was definitely weather for chores. When I was tidying up, I realised that BB needed a new prescription, so as the rain had almost gone off, I walked down to the surgery to sort it out for him. The rain got much heavier, with the result I was absolutely dripping when I got into the doctor’s surgery. I picked up some provisions for tea while I was in town.
I made a fish curry and fancy rice for tea – both boys really enjoyed it. A hit – which I may try to replicate, if I can remember what I did! Later I did a big pile of ironing. I always seem to generate lots of ironing in the summer, when it is too hot to iron.
This soggy foxglove was completely bent over by the rain.
