Today has been pouring with rain and I got a thorough soaking when out doing the grocery shopping.
After drying off I realised that I needed to go out again to pick up a prescription from the pharmacy. By this stage it was a fine drizzle, enough to frizz the hair but not drench the clothes and I decided to walk down the road.
Off I went. Something seemed to be sticking on the bottom of my shoe. Oh no, chewing gum I thought and scraped my sole along the path. A few more steps and I felt a wet squelching. Looking down I found, to my horror that my shoes were disintegrating. These shoes were not cheap; they are a reputable brand; they should not fall apart!! And then I remembered they are around 20 years old and nothing lasts for ever. So the bottoms fell off and they are no more.
Then I can move on to Xanthe's X for the top of her box. I am successfully finding many other "want-to-do" projects which will delay the return to Arabian Nights.
Tonight the weatherman forecasts 21 degrees celsius and 96% humidity for us so it could be a restless night.
