I was feeling optimistic today you know. The temperature became noticeably warmer in the afternoon, we even had the first blue sky for several days and a flock of 20 swifts arrived over work, and spiralled around for a bit.
I even began to feel a slight shiver of optimism that I might actually get a game of cricket tomorrow.
Unfortunately a heavy black cloud the size of Denmark arrived over town, and delivered the heaviest rain shower we've had all week. I looked out the window despondent not only at having to cycle home through this grim weather, but also because I imagined the cricket ground I'm due to be playing at tomorrow getting boggier and boggier.
It's not been cancelled yet, but I imagine it will be tomorrow morning.
OK I suppose I'll be dragging my fat behind for a run.
