Soft refreshing rain

The garden plants must be rejoicing! It has been raining steadily all day, a soft persistent rain which is soaking into the parched, cracked ground here, and I am really hoping that it will do a lot of good! Yesterday, I finally planted the dwarf French beans, the rhubarb, Marigolds and some garlic, so they will all be benefiting from the rain today. I really enjoyed spending the afternoon in the garden yesterday - I managed to do lots of odd jobs as well as the planting, and I did several loads of washing. It was a funny day weather-wise, as dark clouds kept looming and then blew over in the strong winds, so it didn't actually rain all day, and when the sun broke through the clouds, it was really quite warm.

Today has been all about housework as UJ is coming in the morning to stay for the rest of the week whilst we go away to the Norfolk coast. The house is now presentable, and I am just going to make a cake to leave for him, and then I will be satisfied!

We are really looking forward to these few days away, and hoping for good weather. It won't matter particularly if the weather isn't great, as we have packed books, DVDs and some homework to fill in the gaps! We will get out and about whatever the weather, so I hope to bring you some decent photos when we get back.

Have a good week, wherever you are and we'll be back at the weekend. Cheerio!

Yes, we are lucky to have had that rain, but the forecast is for it to get warm and dry again this week!

We are going near to Sheringham on the North Norfolk coast. I have been going to the area all my life - my sister had her first birthday there, when I was nearly 3..and now I am nearly 39!
