St Swithin's Day


Oh no - We have just had a few minutes of rain as I drove back from seeing DJ - That now means it will rain for the next 40 days!!

For those who don't know what I'm talking about -

If it rains for on St Swithin's Day, then it will rain for the next 40 days - a tradition that goes back a long time, as you can see here.

btw - Is it just an English custom - or do the rest of the world watch the weather on July 15th??
