“The answer my friend, is blowing in the wind” – Bob Dylan
I stalked the garden in my new welly boots today. Who’d have thought we would be buying Welly boots at the height of Summer? They’re a winter thing! So much so that they were even on sale. Then I bought a little round pot that holds soup and hot food for four hours before it goes cold. This is winter – it must be winter!
You wouldn’t think so! Luscious green, brilliant sunshine and blue skies were abundant today – but for only 60 seconds at a time. Then the clouds rolled over and dumped another bunch of rain down, throwing in the odd hail stone here and there. Flood warnings are in place, weather warnings are a normality. It’s June!
However contrary to popular belief, we British people don’t always talk about the weather, there are other things. Like how cold it is – and it’s only June! No I’m kidding, I know we complain but yesterday the hosepipe bans across the region were lifted and things (mainly the water levels) are on the up.
To make a change from weather talk, I bought Buddy a lamb today. Not a real one. It seems that if you go for a soft toy without the stuffing (which is healthier for the doggies!) then you pay more. With the stuffing, pay less. Removing stuffing, or not putting stuffing in at all seems to be a lengthy and expensive process. It’s worth it though, Buddy loves it!
