I thought there were no figs ripe

But then in the evening I went and checked, and there were three ripe ones!

Today, based on a weather forecast of no rain and light winds, we had planned a long canoe expedition, but in reality (not in the alternative dimension that is weather-forecast-land) it has rained pretty much continuously since 8am, and shows no sign of letting up.  I'm guessing this is the rain that was forecast for yesterday, then, given that yesterday's forecast was for rain which failed to show.

I and the dogs all got very wet on the morning dogwalk, and getting wet again in a canoe seems an uninviting prospect, even though it would give me a chance to test the bailer that I cunningly made from an old paraffin jug.  Tomorrow, perhaps.

Since we dutifully cleaned all the things yesterday when we could have been canoeing,   today looks like a day of writing and drawing all the things instead.  Hey ho!

The joys of British weather! We went out for lunch today and then strolled around a bit and then there was this conversation:

Him: Shall we go along here?
Me: Um
Him: It's not going to rain
Me: points upwards at a collection of large black clouds
Him: Perhaps we'll head back to the car
We arrive back at the car just as the first very large drops begin

* points upwards at a collection of large black clouds * seems like the kind of weather forecast you can actually rely on. At least a bit.

We were surprised by this morning's rain, too, but found a cafe in which to shelter from the worst of it.
