The day whan we failed to miss the rain!

The day started fine and warm and people were predicting a beautiful day, but I was unconvinced, and my pessimism was justified, it started to rain at lunch time and continued until mid afternoon, in fact pretty much the whole time between the times we were planning to be at meetings. But I wasn't put off!... I went out for a walk any way... in the pouring rain! It was quiet down by the Lake today, not surprising really, but it was nice... I got very wet but I saw lots of lovely things which I failed to noticed on my drier walk the other day, like lambs and ducklings and uprooted trees... Meanwhile Ian finished writing his sermon. Later we went to a rehearsal for the evening meeting which was being recorded for radio by the BBC. It was great, I just love the opportunity to sing with other people for a couple of hours! - especially accompanied by a talented group of musicians.
Ian and I went and had a great meal at a little Mexican bistro between the rehearsal and the evening meeting when the recording was made. The service will be broadcast on Sunday 5th August in the morning on radio 4.

A few wet photos







The day ended fine and warm. It was a beautiful day!

Damp but beautiful.

I need to channel Ian, I'm going to a quiz evening for school and I'm in the teachers' team. But I don't want them to think I'm a complete dummy *g*

The ducklings were particularly cute, I stood for ages in the rain just watching them, they were swimming and paddling around right next to me, even their mother seemed quite unperturbed by my presence even though I was wearing my very bright pink raincoat!

Hope the quiz night was fun, Ian said he was happy to lend his brain but fears he might be too late!!!!

When I said I might be too late, I meant because the quiz is tonight. Any other suggestions are misinterpreting what I said, possibly in a wilful manner.

I really quite like that very grey picture of the lake... and the ducklings were gorgeous, there were 3 of them but I could only ever get two of them in the same picture at one time!!

The ducks would make a good wet weather icon!
