Pouring rain! (Probably because we had put out all the garden furniture.)
Earlier in the week Himself had dismantled the garden seat because it is in need of repair. It's an old clinker-built rowing boat that had been used by the water bailiff who lived in the house across the road. The boat had been discarded and left to rot in a pile of brambles by the lake until, for the price of a donation to the local hospice, we 'rescued' it.
