...Or, I think I know what you mean.
Q: What two things will guarantee dark skies and rain storms?
A: Me hanging out my washing and/or deciding to write a post related to sunshine and warm days.
So I am abandoning my intended post about warmness and brightness and general sun-ness and will instead share something from this (early) morning's walk with M'Faithful Hound.
It was not raining and The Dog was in fairly fine fettle - having just finished a course of steroids to deal with her IMPA - see The Dog (Don't Break It). (Which reminds me, I really must update Witch's story). (Enough with the brackets).
