What filthy weather!

I can't remember a June as wet as this. I woke up at 2 this morning to find that our roof was leaking and water was dripping into the end of my bed. It doesn't bode well for my visit this evening to the launch of Peter Varey's Life on the Edge. Cambridge is a very dull place in the rain. Nor does it bode well for the Wynkyn de Worde Society summer outing &ndash; bring a picnic and pray for sun!
