A certain sector of the school finds it impossible to understand or follow the school rule (and indeed, law) that there will be no smoking on the site. Hence the optimistic sign on the exit to the side alley. Unfortunately they are sadly misguided here, the path is still on site and so there will be lots of disappointed smokers once again when detentions and letters home are dished out.
I have just spent half an hour in the garden clearing up glass from the, once again, ruined greenhouse following another horrendously windy night. With accompanying torrential rain. Despite sporting ear plugs I had the third in a row awful night's sleep, filled with uncomfortable dreams and waking unrefreshed. Calmer conditions are now forecast, which is a boon to me. There are April showers and then there are April showers, if you get my meaning?
