Enough blue
to make a sailor a pair of trousers.

 Warm enough to find a pair of
discarded socks.


  1. Very descriptive! Glad you had a nice day.

  2. It's years since I heard that saying re sailors' trousers - it was one of my grandmother's favourites! We had an itty bit of sun yesterday, but today is ominously gloomy...........

  3. It happened here too, but only for a few minutes. Where is summer?

  4. My Mum used that sailors' trousers maxim too. I can still remember the family debates about whether or not you could piece together enough blue for trousers from between the clouds, or whether you had to find one expanse that was large enough. And then there was the 'what size is the sailor?' faction to be integrated. Hard work all round.
