It's been raining all day today. So an opportunity to light the stove and sit cosily in the cabin looking out at it. No work could really be done, so I've been putting my feet up with a good book (Sophie Hannah's _Lasting Damage_ ... Maybe a bit far fetched, but I can't say for sure as I haven't finished it yet).
We did pop out this morning though, to transfer the money for Singapore, send cheques to the surveyor and for insurance, and to get in some more groceries. Delicious pork pie for lunch from Porters, and from the market some wonderful vegetables... Runner beans, little carrots with the leaves still on and the most extraordinary green cauliflower, the like of which I have never seen before. The florets are't just green, but spiral; it looks like some geometric work of art. What it tastes like we shall find out tomorrow, as tonight we are having dinner at Izzy and Dave's, so we also popped back to the Real Ale Store to pick up a selection we hope they'll like.
Goodness, I do believe the rain has almost stopped.
