Oh, the water Oh, the water Oh, the water Let it run all over me
- Van Morrison, 'And it stoned me'.
It's been pouring rain for days. We've kept ourselves entertained by dancing in the lounge - Fleetwood Mac, Van Morrison and Billie Holiday have been our loyal companions. If there's a break in the rain we venture downstairs to splash in muddy puddles and play with the dogs. Then it's into the tub where the clear, cool water rinses her clean.
Of course, amidst all the sweetness and joy, there's been tantrums aplenty... but that's a story for another day.
