A very difficult choice today, it was rather wet and I didn't venture beyond my back gate (it's actually in the photograph). Had Chris our local postman made more concessions in his mode of dress to the weather he may well have made it to the SIJ, as it is he'll have to be content with the runners up slot on the not SIJ.
I've often referred to walking out from my cottage. Well here is the back view of that cottage. It was originally the workshop of my 90 year old neighbours father who was a wheelwright and made farm carts, stairs and coffins. The first floor loading bay door has been kept in the gable end. There were only 3 walls when it was a workshop, so the "new" fourth wall round the front has a more modern look and more windows in it.
There's only a stream flowing down the lane when it rains heavily or for a long time, otherwise it's relatively dry. As you can see it's a wet day.
