Bad timing! Here comes the sun! (real time)

It was chilly this morning. We didn't light the stove, but I was chatting with Nick this morning while he was serving me with another 20L of diesel for the Bubble stove, and he'd lit his yesterday evening, and this morning, and I'm sure he wasn't alone in that. And the sky was grey. And there was drizzle.

So Grace and I went to the cinema to see "A Hologram for the King". It was something of a disappointment. It had its moments. Comedy, human interest, pathos. But it lacked something. The story was iffy.
"A beautiful doctor (Sarita Choudhury) and a wise-cracking taxi driver (Alexander Black) help an American businessman (Tom Hanks) who's trying to close the deal of a lifetime in Saudi Arabia."
It was a 3:20 programme. When we left the cinema two hours later, the weather had changed dramatically. We were dazzled. We returned to the marina to enjoy this. What poor timing, going to the cinema when we did!

Let's hope it stays this way for the Bank Holiday weekend, and the Crick Show.
