I live in the Midlands, which has little to distinguish itself except some fine archaeology and an interesting statistic: we get double the rainfall of Blackrock in south county Dublin.

Fortunately I don’t let a little rain put me off and so never listen to the weather forecast when planning activities. Otherwise I’d never do anything.

The forecast always predicts it will rain when chances are, it won’t. Or even if it does, so what? This is what jackets are for. My motto is; “there’s no such thing as bad weather; only the wrong clothes”.
