Midsummer madness

On midsummer night you should do something fabulous, and as the stuff on the box is positively appalling tonight, you are going to have to make your own entertainment. The suggestions made to me so far include "sprangling our mangelwurzels" and "spurtling our furtleberries". If you have any idea what these might be, please feel free to share. Alternative activities include: looking mournfully at the drenched hay field; having to water the veg in the polytunnel, because no matter how hard it rains, the rods can't penetrate plastic; hunkering down with a good plate of nosh and the DVD of Casino Royale. Daniel Craig wins hands down. Also hands up, behind his back, etc.

Mike's watching bloody Sharpe, which seems to go on forever every time it turns up, again.
So I'm back on here, cathing up.
Isn't it wet? We're going camping for the weekend - oh joy.

It's been gorgeous here tonight. the Grey Mare and I have been cantering round other people's fields with a couple of ex-racehorses. Joy!

I went to see The Painted Veil witha friend - only to find when we got there that there was a mistake in the brochure! Still we got free tickets for next week so we went to the pub....
