After a briefly warm interlude,
the clouds have rolled back in
and the heavens have opened.
But if we want green,
and no hose pipe ban,
we're going to need a replenished water table
after the driest April on record.
This little one is back.
We will have her for her first overnight stay soon.
The guest suite has been prepared.
And I managed to finish this jacket before she grew out of it,
but fear it might not meet with her approval
as it is not pink.
Yes, that's the way the land lies despite no obvious gender bias
being put into operation for her clothes, toys or furnishings at home -
up until now, when she is able to make her preferences crystal clear.
