It's raining

 she's got everything she needs

she's an artist, she don't look back,

she's got everything she needs

she's an artist she don't look back,

she can take the dark out of the nighttime

and paint the daytime black... Bob Dylan


apart from that, well, here we are just a few days in to 2021 and already it feels like 2020 Part Two. Today sees us here in North Kent enduring our second day of non-stop rain and cold Northerly winds. Weather forecasts promise yet another 24 hours of this weather, in the meantime fields are starting to flood and gardens round here are leaking from every orifice.  Dark skies, the sun a forgotten spectacle, the buzzing of summer meadows, bees, butterflies and swallows like a distant planet and yet, in a long few months, I'll be talking of hard dry ground, praying for those precious few drops of rain to wet the dust. I guess, like birthdays, these things go round and round, they get better, they get worse.

In the mean-time the rain and the wind continue to batter the conservatory windows, I fall asleep, I wake up, I fall asleep, and the 70 odd sparrows around my bird table jostle for every last seed of budgie mix. 

15.30 and the light is fading fast, cars have their lights on, winter at it's extreme, two months to go until Spring peeks over the hill.

  1. If it’s any comfort it’s pouring down in Italy too and Italian rain is extra wet. We’ve had 4 wet days in 5 but at least we had one day of sunshine which restored us. Also it’s light till 5. Keep dry.

    2. I’m so excited my broken Marriage has been restored. “We recently made up, even though it was difficult. It’s been more than a month now, and everything feels like it’s returned to normal. He has began to treat me better, and it’s been a healing process for both of us. The nightmare that had lasted for almost 2 years before we broke up is finally over. It’s like we fell in love all over again! We’ve both put the past behind us, and are trying to move forward – and for the first time in a long time, the future looks a lot brighter. I can’t express in words how grateful I am Dr Great! It’s like we’ve finally rediscovered those things about each other that made us fall in love in the first place. All of the worrying and stress has simply vanished. Thank you Dr Great for saving my broken Marriage and brought my husband back to me!”. Me and my husband are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Great. If you have any problem contact Dr Great now and i guarantee you that he will help you contact him through

  3. The rain does seem to be over your side of the country which makes a change as the weather here has been ok so far. Cold and dry with occasional sunny bits. Fine enough yesterday for me to paint our fence.
    Have you listened to Bobs latest album, Rough and Rowdy Ways, its very good, I like it.
    If only they could get this mass vaccination programme off the ground things might start looking better. But Spring will arrive.

    1. Well as a lifelong Dylan fan since c.1964, I've found the latest album very disappointing. I'll still go to his concerts, if they ever happen again but really feel he's almost at the end of the road as far as his new stuff goes.

  4. Just the same in south east Kent, Derek. Ashford is grey, wet, cold and murky. Romney Marsh lives up to the second word of its name. Cycling is impossible and would be extremely unpleasant at present.

    It is the arsehole of the year (but at least we have had our first jabs and follow-ups due on Saturday!)

  5. First jabs! - lucky you indeed. I'm 73 but not expecting mine this side of March.

  6. Well, Derek our apparent "advantage" over you is that we are both 82, wife with pancreatic cancer (hopefully cured with a serious op.) and me having had prostate cancer (22 years ago now!) and two strokes and a heart attack recently. So pretty vulnerable to Covid

    We would both be very happy to go back to when we were 73 and wait for the jabs!

  7. Blimey Avus, you both warrant every bit of help that you're getting, good luck.

  8. What worries me is that 2022 sounds like 2020, too.

  11. How I Got My Husband back... Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr. Wale can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr. Wale If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him +1(978) 406-9575 or Email him at : everlastingspellcast@gmail.com or or view his website for more review https://everlastingspellcaster.website2.me/contact
