Tell you what though, this dreary, wet, lowering grey sky type of weather really knocks me right down into the dumps. It's always worse too when it happens of a sudden, straight after a run of sunshine and warmth.
It's strange though don't you think, that we should greet this vital part of our planets continuance with such misery. It is after all just as important to our lives as the sun.
Did you notice the word continuance there? I'm not just a pretty face you know. I know some big words too.
Mind you if I lived in a desert I would be writing this from completely the opposite direction: Today the sun came back.
My extremely handsome son George is home for the Easter holiday. Rain or shine his presence always cheers me up. Today though he has gone to visit his Grandmother. So it's all quiet on the western front. All quiet except for the rain drumming on the wagon roof. Now there is a paradox, why when the rain comes down in gentle shower form is it such a soothing sound from the roof, yet when it pours down it drives me mad?
Mia the German Shepherd seems a bit down in the dumps too today. I'm not sure if it's the rain causing it though. I think perhaps it's the fact that EHS George has gone off for the day that has upset her. She adores EHS George, and of course he can play football with her for a lot longer than I can. She has taken to playing with a ball now. When she first arrived she didn't seem interested at all. I shall tell her that when EHS George gets back this evening we are going to the woods, see if that cheers her up.

It's still raining hard, but hey we need a drop of rain to help the beautiful spring flowers to grow. What's not to like?
Well that's it then for now. I think I shall pop down to the shop. I fancy a strawberry cheesecake. Cheer myself up a bit. Actually I am already feeling more cheerful. I always do after I have spoken to you. Thanks for that.
