Oh to be in England, now that April's there
We have seen full moon through storm clouds as in picture no 1, storm clouds gathering in 'day;light' in picture no 2, and a false impression of what a lovely sunny day we have just had in picture 3.
I know I may seem obsessed with clouds and weather, (I am, but there are worse obsessions), and it is I know, a very British thing to bang on endlessly about our contrary climate but we are entitled.
Today, after a 24 hour fast and imbibing of vile concoctions with even more vile results (too much information) I had to travel to our local hospital for a CT scan. It was bucketing down so I took a taxi.
Traffic everywhere blocked solid. Luckily I had called the taxi really early and got there just in time for my appointment.
Unpleasant procedure duly over I headed for the caffeteria and had a coffee with milk and sugar and a muffin. (not my food or drink of choice but necessary as the batteries were in need of re-charging) and rang for a taxi to take me home. Clever girl I thought, to remember to ring before sitting down for coffee.
"About 10 to 15 minutes", they said.
Frozen to the marrow and very damp despite hooded mac, nearly thirty minutes later he turned up. "Sorry" he said "it's solid traffic in all directions, it's the weather"!
