Time Off For Good Behaviour?
St Swithin's Day is 15th July. According to tradition, if it rains on St Swithin's Day, it will rain for 40 days and 40 nights thereafter. Of course - it rained.
But what if we've already had 40 days and 40 nights of rain? Do we get any credit for that?
I can't get my washing dry. My veggies have mostly given up (sadly, not so the weeds). The cats have cabin fever. The slugs are having a field day. I'm having to feed the bees sugar syrup because they can't forage. My sandals are gathering dust under the bed, and my boots want a rest.
Come on St Swithin, give us a break!
