Out early for my dog walk this morning, the sun had yet to properly rise, but the sky was already looking quite red and foreboding. Seagulls were flying inland, which is often a portent to inclement weather.
Before 9am the heavens opened dropping big, heavy raindrops. Good for the garden and allotment.
I returned to the next article I’ve been preparing for my Regatta blog, got it finished and submitted and then thought that I would make some of the courgette muffins that I’d just been writing about. Thirty minutes later muffins are emerging from the oven, so that will be what I’d be having for lunch.
By 2 pm the rain was gone and the sun was out, and it was a pleasant, relaxing afternoon.
