Oh No - I Woke To The Sound Of Rain ...


So that means the summer is completely over.

We Brit's are "celebrating" St Swithin's Day ... as we were reminded of by James in his message a couple of weeks ago ... So, the poem we will all be quoting today is :-

St Swithun's day if thou dost rain
For forty days it will remain
St Swithun's day if thou be fair
For forty days 'twill rain no more

If you don't know what I'm talking about then just have a read here and get caught up with some history ... and maybe a little bit of folklore, as well!
