Summertime and Daleks

The grass here is almost white. We’ve had no rain for it seems like months. Every few days I walk up our lane and water three trees we planted in the Spring just before the drought began.

Even so, the amount of sunshine has been good. I heard on the radio that 70% of people in Britain suffer from Vitamin D deficiency. We need the sunshine. Just back from the OBOD summer camp. More kids there than ever, and I left as the ‘wide game’ was being prepared. This year it will be based on Dr Who at Stonehenge. As I left the field Belinda arrived carrying a bag of rubber drain unblockers. It took Stephanie back in Lewes to explain: ‘Daleks’!
