Rain fell heavily all morning beating on the window panes so hard that it was impossible to see out.
Then IT STOPPED! Blue sky without a cloud for about an hour and then the rain came back with wind.
So now it is blowing a gale and rain is coming out of the sky horizontally.
OH WAIT I SEE A VERY SMALL PATCH OF BLUE SKY. What will be next?
I am compiling a list of adjectives for rain. I understand that the Innuit have 30+ words for snow. I will post my list when it is done.

The world must be getting smaller as I was musing to myself the circumstances which brought these guys to a small theatre in West Cornwall.
My life has been made richer by this encounter.

I watched the Tour de France and just am amazed at those guys 13
days on and still smiling well maybe grimacing but still fantastic. The Alps stages were "incroyable!"
Woken at 5.12 a.m. by a man calling his sheep dog and then went back to sleep until I finally woke properly and realised there are no sheep in the fields around here just cows. I wondered did I dream it but no my husband heard it too. Very strange indeed.
Dreams and reality sometimes seemed to be interwoven but usually easily untangled and explained. but not this time.

Caillebotte - Paris Street in the rain and Winnie the Pooh playing leap frog.
Does it matter what the picture is aren't they meant to keep the rain off?

I enjoyed three different types of salad leaves with my meal last night.
Watercress. Rocket. Baby Spinach leaves.
I tried to decide which one had more flavour.
Watercress : hot and peppery with a fantastic crunch leaves an after feel of hot flavour. Remain crunchy for a few days.
Baby spinach : pleasant flavour and nice to munch
Rocket : Crunchy with a medium hot taste. Beware leaves lose their crunch quite quickly.
I think I have decided.

Eating a piece of pizza sitting on Lemon Plaza a total stranger spoke to me saying what a good photo it was in the paper and how much better the weather was this weekend than last.
I trawled my mind but am sure I have never met her in my life.
How nice of her to be so friendly.
The Tour de France came to England yesterday.
Saw the last 10k on TV. Wow look at the speed of those guys. Impressive they can only be superhuman.
I intend to follow it through France particularly on the mountainous stages when it is awesome.

This is great.
I am growing my own salad in the kitchen.

I heard this morning that it has been the wettest June on record.
Guess what? It's raining again this morning.
I can hear the seagulls dancing on the roof. Is there too much rain even for them? Can a seagull get waterlogged?

It reminds me of when John Macarthy was freed after his kidnapping in Lebanon. Where I was (Glen Roy view point car park) and what time ( 1 pm).
I wonder if this date 4th July and 6.45 am will be etched in my mind as strongly.
I feel sure these dates stay firmly embedded in my memory.

If you have been in England for the last few months you will kmow how much this means to me.
There was a patch of blue sky but now it has gone.
Is it possible to suffer from SAD when it is related to rain rather than daylight?
I have spoken to friends who are all feeling pretty waterlogged.

Sometimes you do something you didn't know you were capable of, were slightly scared of and having done it you surprise yourself because you realised you really enjoyed it.
I did that on Saturday and feel really good with myself. How cool is that?
I am on the rope with the green hat with Richard - my legs aren't strong. He was ace!
The weather was dreadful but hey ho we still went on.
