Pansy - Drizzle for me is wet air that you can just about see. Rain is when you can see and feel and often hear it without trying. We have the latter at the mo. Lovely stuff - wet enough to confine us and dogs and cats to barracks for the next hours or so.
M-U - we moved here to lessen Arthur tendencies and I've had very few twinges but blimey I felt stiff when we got home from dance class. One hour of non stop Paso, Cuban bolero and Samba then 45 mins in the car equals one Obxx feeling over 27.
I have nearly a 100 red onions sets growing in modules and nearly ready to goo into proper soil and I bought some Jerusalem artichokes at the SM today to plant in another bed and a selection of brassicas that would appreciate being planted out. That's tomorrow sorted then.
In Belgium I always provided a coffee pot and freshly made cake or biscuits for builders of any persuasion plus a table and chairs so they didn't have to eat lunch in their van. Anyone who was only there for a couple of hours was offered coffee. Happy workers do a better job.
Here in France they refuse coffee and also go away for a 2 hour lunch at home or back at base so no need for treats and, in any case, the bloody oven wasn't up to cakes and biscuits or anything else for that matter. New oven good but no workmen since.
