So, can you remember what last Monday was like? The chances are you can't -- after all, every day now just seems to bleed into the next as we all behave like hamsters on a treadmill, running constantly to try to keep our jobs.
But I shall give you a little reminder -- on Monday afternoon the skies opened. Remember now? There was a feckin' monsoon about four in the afternoon that thoroughly drenched the city and anyone who had the misfortune to be caught in it.
It was the kind of sudden, torrential downpour that seems like the apocalypse is about to happen -- pitch black afternoon skies and sheets of rain that seem almost impenetrable.
