Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain….

  • The garden is happy… it’s too wet to cut the grass and there is no need to water the plants (hooray!)
  • They can’t enforce a hose-pipe ban (can they?)
  • I can happily sit and watch the rain rather than rush around like a lunatic trying to get all those summertime jobs done.
