It was starting to rain when I took this picture a couple of days ago and it hasn't stopped since! How fabulous is that, after such a hot and dry summer. We were worried about some big trees but this should set them up for a while longer. If it clears up tomorrow I should get out and pull some weeds while the ground is still soft ... or perhaps I could go to the bookfair. Or maybe the shops. I spent a happy couple of hours trying to find plain black work shoes this afternoon - no luck of course because I want them to be incredibly comfortable while looking like they're agonisingly painful ... not sure such shoes exist. I want them to look like this-
and feel like this -
I may be out of luck. Still, it was nice just to potter around on my own out of the rain and try lots of things on and not buy them. I know it doesn't sound like everyone's idea of fun but I very much enjoyed myself.
