Having experienced one of the driest years on record, I now see that we're about to endure a whole week of bloody (but quite welcomed) rain.
Of course it may never happen, but I think I'd better cut a lot of wood today; just in case.
Apparently Prince Charles used to call his ex-brother-in-law (Cap't Mark Phillips), 'Fog', on account of his being both thick and wet.
The combination of wet, fog, and cold is just about as bad as I can imagine.
The sort of weather when you want a nice cup of tea, a dark chocolate digestive, and a good old film on TV.
