The Rain's An Hour Late...




Ten past five and it suddenly pours with rain for six minutes … Sitting comfortably on the sofa with some coffee, I'm not unduly bothered but do wonder if it's a sign of things to come.  I check the online edition of the Guardian again and it quite definitely says that it was going to rain here at four. Where will it end? And then it dawns on me... I'm not going ga-ga. I've been taken prisoner by the web.

Fortunately, after a couple of weeks of feeling like death after a bad reaction to some pills, I'm feeling almost human again and can put the laptop down and join the real world again. Perhaps plan a day out. An hour or two on the train, a good lunch and buying some new shoes will be quite exciting enough to start with … and I'll throw caution to the winds, not checking the weather before I go.

A definite yes to new shoes and a double plus for being past being sick!

Sorry to hear you've been feeling under par. Your plan for a day out sounds perfectly recuperative. Even if it does rain.

Glad you're feeling better again! Yes, go out and celebrate!

I'm all for boycotting umbrellas.

Sorry to hear about the bad reaction but glad that you'll be taking us for some adventures again soon.

Husband swears by the weather forecasts; I look out of the window. (Admittedly I have got drenched on occasion.)

Have a nice day out, why not. We all deserve a treat now and then, there are pleasure even for us oldies. In fact, we probably have more freedom to please ourselves than some younger people.

I already boycott umbrellas by leaving them on buses. We lose many that way.
