Looked very overcast when got up and started to rain at 10am. Another wet day. Had hoped to get a walk in before I go on holiday. Has it really been four weeks since we went for a walk? When did we last have a BBQ? Today being St Swithens Day I hope we don’t have rain for the next 40 days and nights. After the NZ’s went I spent most of the day either getting bits ready or doing things to make life easier for Chris while I am away. Our last guests for the cottages arrived from Cornwall late afternoon with a gift of clotted cream and some biscuits. Very welcome. Will have to get up early tomorrow to get ready.
