A fish out of water

Do you ever feel like one?

The drizzle and grey have returned
and more Arctic blasting is confidently predicted
for the weekend.
I was working in the garden without a jumper on Monday,
batteries charging nicely.
Suffice it to say,
I am not in my element.


  1. Almost all the time Lucille.

    Monday was glorious wasn't it? Let us hope for more sunny days.

  2. Fish out of water? Story of my life..
    But, as they say, if you haven't got it, flaunt it!

  3. And so I am not in my element. On Monday I saw FB posts that said - IT'S SPRING! So I thought it was safe to come back to the UK. Now I feel like Rick in 'Casablanca' who feels he was misinformed about the waters in the town. (He came for the waters, he says, for those of you who don't know the whole script off by heart as do I. There are no waters in Casablanca, he is told. "I was misinformed," he answers, bleakly.)
