Rain, Toys, Clegg

It rained yesterday and it's going to rain some more today. Apparently it's all down to the seasonal melting of the Greenland ice. The sogginess of May is now so predictable that commentators are beginning to talk (seriously or in jest, I'm not sure which) about the British monsoon season.

I spent £15 in the Red Cross shop in Paddock Wood yesterday. I bought three plastic dinosaurs, four plastic sea creatures (more or less life-size), a tin full of plastic animals, a box full of plastic ponies and their riders and four die cast metal cars. All for the grandchildren and great nephews you understand (cough).

Last time I looked Nick Clegg was still leader of the Lib Dems. I can't think why.
