Monday 22nd June 2015
It wasn’t a good start to the week. I woke up to find it raining as forecast, but as it was meant to ease off as the morning progressed I decided to drive to Wimborne to do my grocery shopping instead. But as I drove out of Broadstone I hit road works on the main road to Wimborne. And when I passed the roadworks it got worse and I was at a standstill. I thought I’d take a detour, but missed a turn and ended up back where I’d turned off, only to find the traffic was moving again!
It wasn’t much better in the shop, which didn’t have the dogs’ Joint Care sticks and then managed to charge me incorrectly for an item. And to top it all I came home a different way only to be faced with – you’ve guessed it – more roadworks!
So I got home, and as the rain hadn’t really eased much, thought I’d take Max out. So we had a bit of a wet walk over to Upton Heath. It did ease off for a while, but this foxglove shows that it was wet.
And then, to top it all, it started to tip down with rain. I sheltered under the trees on the Roman Road. Max didn’t see the point of sheltering from the rain.
Fortunately it eased off again and we were able to get home without getting any wetter.
Let’s hope the week improves.

Jez and I went for a walk on Hengistbury Head, near Christchurch.
