We've had some torrential downpours over the last few days but this morning didn't look too bad so we put on our wellington boots and walked across the fields. We hadn't walked here for several months because the sweetcorn crop had grown high and if the leaves were at all damp they gave you a thorough soaking. But now the fields have been cleared.
It wasn't a wise decision. It was treacherous underfoot and you can guess who tripped over a corn stalk, wearing her clean jacket and jeans, and fell in the mud!
