I gave myself a small pat on the back this week.
We have not had rain for weeks. I have been washing almost every day to make use of the sunshine. The memory of the month of rain still lurking in the recesses of my mind so I keep up to date in case it returned.
It did. With a mighty downpour.
Well done me, I thought. I got my last load of washing off the line before the rain came.
I went past the washing line the day after the rain cleared. What did I discover under the line?
A full washing basket of 'dry' laundry.
