I awoke this morning to sun streaming in through the window, bright and cheerful. It’s certainly a welcome change after the last few weeks of dismal, wall-to-wall grey clouds, rain and more rain, wind and more wind. The weather in the UK so far this year, has been truly awful. I am filled with awe when I see the ferocious intensity of the crashing waves, the destructive roaring power of the wind, and the relentless advance of encroaching flood-waters. And when I see on the news the devastation of flooded homes, livelihoods destroyed, fields become vast lakes, roads turned to waterways, I realise that I’ve come off pretty lightly.
