It's a miserably wet Bank Holiday Monday. The sort of day when its best to get snug and warm indoors and read a book or chat on the phone.
But some hardy folks from the canoe club, who presumably hadn't seen the weather forecast, had been talking of heading up river to practice stunts where a canal meets the Thames. Rather them than me - especially as what's this above?
Yup the Thames Bubbler is out again. After all according to the news we've had a month's worth of rain today and that must be straining the Victorian pipework causing overflow into the river and hence needing its oxygen to keep the waters alive.
As for me, time for another cuppa.
