An oceanographer neighbour tells me that climate change may make Scotland milder .... but possibly 60% wetter. I didn't think Scotland could get any wetter. Yesterdays non-stop rain and this mornings unrelenting downpour tells me that I'm wrong. Think chilly monsoon. Sophie is, of course, in her element. The family diva is able to pursue her penchant for walking through, rather than around, puddles. On the farm track she halts for a lengthy break of day drink.

'The Font' positions a small mountain of dog towels in the porch. Our fluffy companion will spend her day trying to transfer mud and water from the garden into the kitchen. Angus decides this is a day for doing 'paperwork'.
