Drip ...Drip... Drop ...

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
As you fall all around

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
What can compare
To your beautiful sound

Drip, drip, drop
When the sky is cloudy
Your pretty music
Can brighten the day

Drip, drip, drop
When the sun says howdy
You say goodbye right away

Another British Bank Holiday Monday dawns.  Ergo it's raining. 

Hey ho!  It's not like it's a huge surprise or anything is it?!

So many people on my Facebook feed are bemoaning the weather today.  I don't see the point in moaning about something over which you have absolutely no control.    There is no doubt that we NEED this rain - it's been falling steadily for most of the day.  A gentle, steady, drenching rain which will no doubt please the gardeners amongst us. 

I'm more than happy to be inside today. I'm not at the dark and gloomy place, I have Lindor chocolates and some rippling to do!  

 The Superbikes (and lots of  kid's films) are on t' telly so Wondrous Man is happy, DD's gone away to the seaside with her boyfriend so she's happy, there's biscuits in the house so KTT is happy, and HTH is pretending to be invisible so we won't tell him to get off the settee - so he's more than happy!! I cleaned the chooks out this morning so they're happy.  The cats are no-where to be seen so I can't vouch for their collective happinesses but hey, you can't please everyone!

Happy Happy Happy!

Back to work tomorrow for me but even that can't penetrate my happiness shield - just four days breaking rocks (in the hot sun) and I'm away from the place for NINE WHOLE DAYS! YEEHAH!! 

Oh yeah - and we have a haunch of venison cold cuts of this beautifully spicy ham for tea! ~~~~>

Hey one's glass isn't just half full, it's positively overflowing!  **

Don't let the weather dampen your spirit - enjoy the rest of your precious day, whatever you happen to be doing.

See you soon 


** remind me of all this bloody positivity malarkey, say, on Thursday, when I shall once again have lost the will to live!!   ;)


  1. How could you ever tell that face to get off the setee? It'd take a cold, cold heart.....


  2. Harvey is very handsome! Our 2 had to go out for their walk wearing waxed jackets today, to save the mad shaking that goes all up the wall in the hallway when they get back!

  3. We could use a little of that drip, drip, drip here. We have not had rain for awhile, and the air is smoky from nearby forest fires. We have been enjoying beautiful weather this year, but there is a price to pay.

  4. The ham looks delicious. No rain here over Easter, but definitely chilly.

  5. Cor, that ham looks fab!
    Yep, it was drip, drip, dripping here too :o( typical that today when OH is back at work the sun is shining!
    Err, raining Easter eggs on my blog? That chocolate's gone to your head! lol ;o)
    Enjoy your break from that 'w' place :o)

Working from home

I've taken a precious day of annual leave today.  I've really struggled this week with feeling so yuk and I needed the restorative ...
