The fire stayed in all night, I put stick on and some coal, away it went. We did not use any more fuel yesterday than we would in an evening, so I will be banking it up again tonight.
It was hissing down with rain when we got up, a quick go round with the Dyson, cleaned the loo and bathroom and mopped the kitchen floor.
T arrived right on time and we walked sown to the green with her little jack russell leading the way. There were quite a few horses already on the green. Just on 11am the hounds arrived with the whipper in and Master, the pick coats making a bright statement against the grey sky. The stirrup cap was passed round by hunt supporters and eventually they set off. No longer hunting for foxes but chasing a dragged cloth.
It was still pouring with rain as we walked home. DD2 had arrived so we had hot coffee. T set off to drive home and we had lunch. DB retired for his siesta and DD2 left to catch the 2pm bus back to Melton.
The wind has increased since I got home, we are forecast 50mph winds later.
There was a terriffically loud bang at one point, I though at first it was the gate, but then realised the farmer has sowed the field at the back of us and it was a bird scarer going off.
