115/366 The weekend

For several days my wife has been watching the long distance weather forecast with an intensity that isn’t usual – unless there is an outdoor Women’s Institute event scheduled, which there was, a driveway sale.

We had everything in place, during the week members of her branch have been bringing contributions. Every evening would watch at least two forecasts, with increasing intensity as the weekend approach.

By Friday, it was becoming evident that acknowledging a more than 50% chance of rain, it looked like there may be a window of opportunity. Saturday morning 0900 was the go / no-go point. The decision was; it’s a Go.

Everything was set up, volunteers turned up, and exercising the usual social distancing & PPE things were ready to go.

Luckily, the rain held off. It was a little bit busy, so it was lucky that nothing fell out of the sky. We did have parasols but we couldn’t have used them as it was a bit breezy. They would have taken off like rockets.

The ladies stuck at it for three hours, before deciding that it was getting too cold, with the usual efficiency everything was packed away just in time for the heavens to open. Short intense showers followed.

I decided to go for a walk during an interval between showers. It was a good job I wore my proper rain coat as that interval wasn’t very long. I got quite wet. I didn’t take the picture at the top though. I took that one this afternoon. Frustratingly yesterday I lost something, it only cost a couple of quid but I was frustrated and surprised at its loss. So I revisited part of yesterdays walk. I didn’t really expect to find it, and I didn’t. But I did take the picture and for some reason, I really like it.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
