Grey Skies and Scrumpy

On what can only be described as the greyest and wettest weekend for a long time, I decided to make my annual pilgrimage to Worcester to pick up my cider ingredients. Knowing that the pressing of the apples would not be complete until late afternoon, I decided to make a day of it and called in at the local Nature Reserve.

As the morning went on it got greyer and wetter. ISO 1250 f4 and only getting 100/125 SEC, I decided to throw the towel in and go help with the pressing of the apples.

Can only pray that Santa brings me a 1DX for Xmas

On a brighter note, I now have forty gallons of apple juice, 30 Ibs of sugar and 5 kilos of raisins nicely bubbling away. So now all we need is patience and someone to cal the first Cuckoo...
