ANOTHER wet summer . . .
I knew that hot sunny weather was too much of a good thing, as now we are back to heavy rain and autumnal temperatures. I am relieved I don't still have horses as I should imagine hay will be at a premium once again as the end of June is prime hay-making time . . . Local farmers will be glad to have had the fine weather in which to make silage and haylage recently.
The rain and a bit of a breeze, arrived yesterday afternoon and it has precipitated ever since. Our son is down at a Festival near the beach at Pembrey, and is doubtless more than a little disgruntled about the weather, as it really isn't much fun camping in weather like this and you cant be outside to listen to the music . . .
As you will see, I have been hard at work on my "Sweetpeas" crochet lap quilt. Ive done 30 plus rows. It should perhaps be titled "Escape from the Country to the Country" as I have been watching endless recordings of EtotheC whilst working on it. I far prefer crochet to knitting as it is more automatic and I can unpick it far easier!
The old cast iron candle holder by the way, started of its life in a Belgian monastery and will come in useful for the next power outage.
I hope that your summer is better than ours . . .
