It has been quite dry and we have been watering both the vegetable and flower gardens. Today it is raining. Great - no need to water. There has been thunder rumbling through all afternoon and more is forecast overnight and into tomorrow.
I just poked my head (and camera) outside and took this photo through the gloom.
I think we have all the provisions we need for Christmas Day. Tomorrow we will start the preparations. Still picking beans although I think we have enough. Will make the trifle, sort out the vegetables we need. Make the marinade for the lamb and leave it overnight ready to go in the oven early on Christmas morning.
The rain is forecast for tomorrow and Christmas Day but, luckily we don't need to go anywhere. Everyone is coming to us.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.
