Blimey what a weird day. After spending an hour chatting to Doug and discussing among other things the fact that today it hadn’t been raining, I then promptly drove up to New Galloway to my Cub meeting through roads that are fairly well flooded. How come I didn’t even notice that it had rained that much? I’m not sure what planet I have been on today, an even odder one than normal obviously.
My Cub group are great, I was there tonight, they don’t half come out with the funniest things bless them. One was rather concerned that the Scout hall might get flooded and float away, and what would we do then because the electricity would go off. The fact that the hall is on a hill higher than most of the rest of the village and so if we got it then the rest of the place would be in an awful mess didn’t seem to have registered.
The other brilliant one was on sunday as we walked between the cenotaph and the church, they were discussing their breakfasts. I started to pay more attention and stop spotting the conkers
when one announced that she had had courgettes for breakfast. Really? Asked another, yes she replied, they were warm and one had butter melted on it and the other had jam and they were lovely and flaky. Ahhh I see, croissants! Brilliant.
