I think the weather today reflects the mood of all of the Toon Army supporters: grey and gloomy. Keegan has resigned and we are looking for another manager. Anyone else prepared to drink out of the poisoned chalice?
I won't say another word about it. Fed up!
I would like to say that despite it all the weather has improved but that would be a large porky pie ( lie). Other half and I did roam around the block last night and it was ( briefly) warm and still and ( most importantly) dry. It was a real delight. We were clearing our respective heads from a day of relentless proposal writing and bids, and after an hour we felt much better. There were lots of lovely sail boats on the lake ( looked like kids under instruction) and a few tourists buzzing about admiring the fabulous views.
Today, however, it looks pretty much as per above. Very wet, very dark... and the central heating is on. We have braved it out the whole summer and have finally cracked. It is too miserable to put up with being chilled a moment longer. I feel sorry for people who won't be able to afford to put the heating on at all this winter because of the soaring fuel prices, especially the elderly, sick and those with small children. It must be such a worry for them.
We have decided to have a real fire in the winter most nights and try to keep the heating down in the rest of the house. I love autumn winter nights when the candles are lit, and the fire is burning and we are all sitting cosy together.
