Most of my working life has been spent in libraries, but in my younger days I trained and worked as a nurse. Now I have given up paid employment to cultivate the art of not working, and save my life at the same time. Life isn't always easy, but it's what we've got. Carpe diem!

Rain at last
Yesterday it rained all day, after weeks of hot sunny days. Thank goodness. Everyone is grateful, especially my farmer neighbours. My water tank was almost empty and I was on the point of ordering a tanker load - at around $200 a pop. Now I don't need to, the weather gods obliged and after a few hours of steady rain my tank is full again and the garden is refreshed. I could almost see the courgettes and tomatoes gratefully absorbing all that lovely water and swelling up before my very eyes. My runner beans have gone mad, and I can't give them away because everyone else's have gone mad too!
