Rain

I'm sitting in the junk room at home, trying to warm up after spending the greater part of the morning in the rain, watching our middle girl take part in rugby training. The rain started as a light mist, but following a trip to the club-house to buy hot drinks had turned into a consistant …

Miserable

After waking to a blanket of grey skies this morning, the weather has been growing steadily worse.
