Yet another dry and warm day. All areas of the country have had less than 20% of the rainfall usually expected for September (I can hear the weather lady saying it has been the driest since records began in 1910.) but I expect rain will arrive eventually. I was at work all day with the little ones again but once I got home I still had time to fit in a couple of hours putting mortar in between the slabs and repairing broken corners.
I always enjoy my drive to work, such a contrast to biking through city streets or battling the crowds on the underground. This morning on the first half of the journey along the lanes I passed: my neighbour out walking his dog and chatting to someone in a van, somebody out for a morning ride and a dead rat. There were a few more cars out on the main road but I didn't really come across any traffic until I got to the traffic lights at the edge of town. I love my country life.
