A new week, a new month and a rather depressing meteorological start.

Grey, cloudy skies made all the less appealing by rain. Not relentless rain but spells of the stuff which will occasionally be heavy. In addition it's breezy too. None of the above ingredients combine to make a particularly appetising weather feast.

It's staying changeable for the rest of the week - as is typical at this time of year- but there will be some bright interludes aswell so all is not lost and I did hear mention of things not looking too bad on Saturday.

So with that carrot dangling in front of us we can put our best, waterproofed foot forward.
