The forecast rain system has arrived and given our dry soil a much needed drink. Not lots of rain but some good heavy showers have been passing through. Tomorrow is meant to be sunny again so I am enjoying the slightly cooler temperatures the rain has brought with it.

The sun has only peeped through a couple of times, with the skies being mostly dark and overcast.
I like to stand in the door and watch the rain and breathe in deeply of that earthy fresh smell that happens only when dry ground is first drenched with rain.
I was writing an email to my daughter this morning while sitting on my bed when Mittens came racing into the room and joined me – complete with her dirty wet paws and belly. My clean bedspread now has grubby paw prints dotted over it, so I wasn’t that happy with her enthusiasm in greeting me.
The rain has a downside that we will have to rectify before winter arrives – water seeps into the connector box on our TV aerial and I lose reception on around half of the available Freeview channels available.
This afternoon I have been watching Eat Well For Less and learning about the high fat content in most takeaway foods. It is most annoying when suddenly the screen goes black with a message saying I need to check the connection!
The joys of modern living J
Hope everyone is having a great day,
