I was delighted to see grey skies and drizzle this morning , though less delighted when it started pouring while I cycled home from the market , it's true . But this song has been haunting me all week and , quite frankly I was getting a little tired of skipping about , chirping "Hip , hip , hip hooray ! " . Our neighbours are quite relieved , too , I expect .
Luckily before I turned into a midsummer version of Scrooge , I managed to drag Husband off to Harlingen and we had coffee and apple pie in a little cafè opposite this pretty flower shop in the middle of town
We found an elephant for Small Grandson , too , though he'll have to make do with the photo. , poor boy
And these irises are for you ...
I've just listened to the song for the first time all the way through and I must apologise for some of the lyrics . They're "very of their time ", I'm afraid .
