Looks like rain


Water fell out of the sky this morning. That doesn't happen often in London. I got Mrs Wildebeest to stand outside with a bucket, so that we might have some kind of reserve to use when our water company introduces a hosepipe ban - despite the fact that its reservoirs are 96% full and a third of its water is lost through leakage before it even reaches our tap.

Never mind. The Gnu family is moving home next week, and we'll be giving the new garden a damn good spray before the ban comes in. If all else fails, we'll have to spit on the roses. I'll just think of Charles Clarke as I do it - that should get the sputum flowing.
