Rupert

I'm looking out of my office window and it's raining — where on earth has the summer gone to?? I even had to resort to trousers today instead of shorts — my goosebumps were getting goosebumps! This time last week we were on a family holiday in Cyprus — they were having a bit of a heatwave with temperatures around 5 degrees higher than normal making it a very hot 35 to 40 degrees. Seems very uncharitable to complain about it being too hot, then come home and complain about it being too cold — such a very British thing to do! It's been a sad week since then — my old horse Rupert had to be put down. He was living out his dotage with a wonderful lady who has lavished so much care and attention on him. Sadly it was his time to go and it has left a very big hole in my heart (he was a very big horse!!)
