Very drecih wet day here all day and dark with it.
Bought nice yarn so part knitting and rest crochet .

Ground cold and wet and so many slippy leaves on paths etc.



Hi Scotkat,
It's been bucketing down all day in the Thames Valley, flooded roads everywhere.
Just miserable, too wet to be outside.

Not too bad in the East Midlands today. Quite windy, sunny spells this afternoon and the odd drizzly shower. Dry at the moment but is this the "lull before the storm".

Quite a good, mild day in Somerset, a few rays of sun, too! - but the wind picked up and the rain started about 6 o'clock. It's blowing a gale now, wind screaming round the house! We are in for torrents this evening.

Hello Kath ~
Previous two afternoons I was outside scrubbing pavings, but I just couldn't force myself out there today. Windy, damp and uninviting. :o(

So I gave my dog a bit more of a haircut which was much more important and much more cosy. :o)

I hope all is well with you.

Grey/damp in Worcs and West Midlands. I find that the shorter days we have now mean that I struggle to get out into the garden. I was even wondering about doing a mini-blog about moonlit gardening activities.
Mind you, I could have shaved half an hour off my wandering round the monthly farmers' market in the High St this afternoon. Ahem.

Just remembered something which tickled my fancy. A caller at work (I'm mostly answering phone enquiries etc) told me recently that the weather in the Scottish Highlands was so wet they had a special word for it in Gaelic. I asked him how to spell it and he said he was unsure but guessed at DRUICKIT. It means that it's raining so much even your underwear gets wet!
It made my day.
Any northernmost GOYers heard of this one?!

Scotkat, this brings back happy memories of living in Aberdeen for a while and 1) singing along to the "Singing Kettle" songs from Fife with our kids when they were tiny, and 2) watching The Beechgrove Garden, what a programme! and what a lovely themetune, wonder if it's changed cos that was 10 yrs ago!
We used to reckon that as poor Sassenachs we understood less than half of what the presenters were saying. But still, it was just brilliant. Less of yr designer tosh, more trying to plant something with schoolkids on the side of a cliff in the middle of a howling gale. Fabulous stuff, real gardening.
