So yesterday I went off to uni wearing a summer jacket and sandals. I was comfortable as I made my way to the train station on a fine and pleasant morning.
Later, however, the weather had other ideas. It decided to rain and didn’t let up.
Coming home from uni, already tired after concentrating on a dissertation workshop, I ended up with soaking feet as I dodged huge puddles and passing car spray. I was cold, tired, wet and hungry.
I know, I should have worn boots and a coat but in my defence it was a nice day and the day before I somehow managed to run over my previously broken toes under the airing cupboard door. I mean how does a person manage that? Don’t ask me but my poor old toes always seem to end up under one door or another. So to be honest, I didn’t think I could bear to trap them inside boots.
As for the coat, it gets hot when the sun shines and walking a long way with a big coat is tiring. I did however, have my loyal old brollie, which by the way, kept shouting at me all the way home to put it in for a part exchange.
So it seems there is some substance to the saying never cast a clout until May is out.
Well hurry up June because I’m tired of winter clothes and footwear. Let the sun shine.
Do you think it means May the month? My mum said it was referring to May the flowering bush.

I have never heard that, Shirley. My mum always said it and I always presumed she meant the month.Does the may bush flower in May?
It certainly looks lovely.
