We are promised a clear bright sparkling morning followed by an afternoon of persistent rain. This rain sleet and snow is expected to continue till June. There is an old saying. ‘Never cast a clout till May is out.’ Old sayings work for me.
The title is not a reflection on any new found organisational ability but just on the time scale of things as they happened today. Up before the Lark, as usual. The geese had been awake for a lot longer from the noise they were making. We ventured out as dawn was breaking.
One of dozens of Greylag Geese…………….they are not all flying as a flock, there are continual arguments, not the quietist of birds at the best of times but at the moment the din they create deserves an ASBO.
We then went for a wander…………more a hobble in my case.
Back towards Keswick…………the source of fleeces.
I had a kindred spirit die over a year ago. The Telegraph Crossword kept us in touch it was a race. I couldn’t access the paper till half six. He got his at six……he said seven was start time but I bet he cheated………………Who wouldn’t, I know I would. Anyone out there wants to text on Telegraph crosswords get in touch. These are still the best I can find for word play.
I love language but can’t spell words to save my life. If you go here MIDMARSH JOTTINGS. It proves my point.
I was born sinister, forced to write wit the pen in my write hand………..sorry that should read… With the right hand. I could not spell Mediteranean or accomadation. So was pronownsed thick or fick as the Derbyshire teachers called me…….They were not far off but at least I learnt………..took me sixty years!
That’s all the weather is awful. we will see what tomorrow brings.
