Yup, it's that kind of day. I don't normally complain about the rain - I just take it for granted that it's going to rain and if it doesn't, well, Bonus!

However it's been a very mild easy winter in Dublin and it hasn't rained for ages. I can't remember the last time it rained, but I've been blatting about very happily in just my leather jacket for the last few weeks.

So when I woke this morning I was a bit confused by all the greyness and rain, then my confusion gave way to a mild and gentle unhappiness...

I lived in Portugal for a while in the late '90s and I routinely went off on my bike for weekends in just a tee-shirt and jeans. No woolly sweater, no waterproofs, just a toothbrush and sleeping bag and a few bits and pieces. It was very liberating.

Upon my return I went to see my parents, neglecting to bring my waterproofs, and got stuck there for three day's 'til the rain let up...
