Wet in Godzone :-(
We were supposed to collect the chipper at 7.30am, but after checking the weather decided not to bother. Very grey skies and then a bit of rain, but not a lot at the start of the day. Before the rain started in earnest I managed to salvage some of the larger pieces of wood for the fire, chopped some logs into smaller more manageable sizes for the fire before I had to come indoors.
After coming indoors I started to feel really cold and just didn't seem to able to warm up. I suppose it was with getting so wet outside, but whilst wielding my axe I was feeling fine. Hot cup of tea and rugging up warm didn't seem to work for ages ... I must be getting old!
As you can see from the first image in this post, nobody wanted to play out! Sandpit, slide and swings are all deserted ... pretty miserable!
