'Salina was already in the living room, having been awake since 4.45, just finishing breakfast and playing happily with a phalanx of My Little Pon
I went in to brew coffee and fill the water filter, make the tea, arrange my brain and gird my loins for the walk I had promised this morn.
Negotiations were made on the timing of our promise (she opened with waiting until a certain level of digestion had taken place - I must tell you one day about my leftover turkey pies).
V wandered out to the scent of the coffee (while I finished the washing up - shhhh, not sure if I am more embarassed that my mother will find out OR that my one New Year's Resolution lasted only a week) and weather was discussed.
"It has rained a lot" observed 'Salina.
We all agreed it looked and felt like more.
"So, its been sunny then raining then sunny then raining?" I enquired.
"No" she countered. "It was raining then sunny then raining then sunny. Otherwise it would be raining now."
