This picture is just here to remind me that the sun did shine a couple of weeks ago even though it has rain solidly all day today! I think this is Uppark, a house owned by the National Trust. Walked Wrecks around the locality today and most people were very sensibly staying indoors. A few brave Mum's walking to fetch their children from school,,,most though were in their cars. My children when they were at school used to call children who always went by car in the rain 'the cardboard kids'.!
Whilst walking through the graveyard three gravediggers were filling in a grave, sad for the family of the person who had died to be saying farewell in such atrocious weather....and poor gravediggers, what a job on a wet day.
Met a 'Lollipop lady' waiting to see the children across the road, nice and dry in her fluorescent coat and hat...but she said the rain was running down her neck!
If it drys up this evening I may go on another Nightjar walk on Canford Heath, I know I saw them last week but I want to know where they are so that I can go and see them when I like and take the rest of my family.
