It has rained solidly since daybreak. We played 7 games of croquet in the pouring rain. By the time we had finished we had had more than enough and were wet through.
Then life changed. I went out to dinner then Eclectic Friend and I went to see The Kings Speech. What a truly excellent film. Now I can see what all the fuss and hype has been about. Now I can see that Colin Firth has become a truly great actor.
I cannot say that I enjoyed the first 7 hours of the day. But the rest of the day has been as good as it gets.
