When I woke up this morning, the rain was hammering down on the house and everything was very grey. By the time I had showered, the sun had come out and I could see a rainbow over the rooftops. I’ll choose to take that as a very good omen. ;)
The walk in was wonderful: the sun glittered on wet streets, everything was washed clean by the rain during the night, the shopkeepers were bantering as they opened their shops. The air in the centre of town smelled heavenly, thanks to the guy with the food van who was frying bacon and onions, and the bakeries smelling of bread and sugar.
I feel good today.
