Good morning all, from the wet and misty Pennines.
Hope the weather doesn't turn too cold, Pat; I guess your forecasters are a bit like ours in telling you the "worst case scenario", in case they get into trouble for getting it seriously wrong. (That happened in 1987 in Britain when the south of England had a hurricane which uprooted hundreds of mature trees and damaged a lot of buildings. The forecaster who'd said, a few hours before, "Don't worry - it's not a hurricane" came in for a lot of criticism afterwards. A bit unfair really - he didn't make it happen, after all!)
The wet is welcome here, except for the encouragement it gives to the slugs. We've been eating remarkably hole-free strawberries up to now.
Rebecca, I have a constant-companion cat. Not huge like a Maine Coon, but addicted to sleeping next to - or on, depending on temperature - my head at night, and currently sitting on the table next to this computer with her tail draped over the keyboard.
How did it get to 11am already?? Time for a coffee, I think...
