After managing to stay awake until past nine yesterday (just) I found myself wide awake again at just after four. Better than around two, that's for sure.
So I've strung and sliced the beans I picked yesterday, put on some washing and will be roasting another lot of tomatoes because there's so many and I will never manage to eat them before the next load gets picked.
It's been a glorious year for tomatoes after such a late start but in this current damp weather it wouldn't surprise me if they suddenly got totally blightificated! There's been a number of high risk periods over the last week or so. It will either be that or an early frost!
It was such a wet day yesterday although the children did manage to get some (damp) fresh air. It was a bit like the hokey cokey at times - in, out, in, out - but we managed! And I had to smile (inwardly) when little D came up to me in great distress because he'd looked EVERYWHERE for his new school jumper and couldn't find it ANYWHERE! He soon cheered up when I pointed out that he was wearing it! At least he didn't then complain that someone must have 'put it there', as another little lad did years ago. That one still makes me chuckle.
I've just peered out into the dark (and it is extremely dark as they turn out the street lights between midnight and 5 am) and it is wet, windy and yucky. We're forecast to have some very bad weather over this weekend, which is a shame. Where's our Indian Summer?
