The day started so well and now the sun has disappeared. I was reading the news on my iPad with the weather report saying where would be rain and thunder and even hailstones later in the day, a real end of the world mood. I decided that later in the day meant evening and it is now the beginning of the afternoon.
I was still drifting in my lunchtime sleep when there was a ring at the doorbell. I dragged myself up during which time it rang twice more. This must be an emergency, The postman always rings twice, but three times? I groped my way to the door still drunk with sleep and Mr. Swiss appeared. He was in the back garden and only just heard the doorbell. I gave up and went back to bed to recover from the disurbance. Mr. Swiss went to the door and there was no-one there. Whoever it was had disappeared.
It was still good weather and I decided to go places with my camera. As I was getting ready it rang again at the door, but this time Mr. Swiss was there and ready. Two small boys were at the main entrance wanting to see the school colleague that lives upstairs. We were annoyed and did not let them in as their friend upstairs was not there.
I was now ready to go places when there was a noise outside, a warning, a clap of thunder. I looked up and saw the black and grey clouds approaching. The blue was disappearing slowly but surely. I changed back to my normal housewife daily clothes, and gave up. I am now sitting outside on the porch listening to the first hesitant rain drops. In the meanwhile they are no longer hesitant but threatening.
