A storm brewed up on Sunday night and continued on and off yesterday. Lots of rain. The soil here is like red clay and when it rains the mud gets everywhere. I slipped in it yesterday around the back of the house when I was about to feed Sammy and Blondie. It was on a slope about 5 yards long and I slid from one end to the other. Apart from a little graze and bruise on my arm I was unscathed, although the clothes I was wearing have been put through three wash cycles and I still can't get the stain out.
It didn't rain during last night, but it felt chilly. I seem to be going down with another flu bug which is making me shiver, so the duvet is back on the bed for the time being.
This morning I was up just before 6am as it started to rain again. It looks like it's set to continue today. I fed the dogs and they insisted they wanted to go out in the rain, so off they went. They returned an hour later, very wet and muddy.
As for me...I'm going back to bed, where I'll stay until summer returns...hopefully tomorrow!
