Grey days

Today it was one of those English grey days where the sky seems to sit on top of you like a heavy brick oppressing you. Everything here seems dimmed and grey and flat, and there's not texture in objects around. People look pale and bleak and lifeless. Even after having lived in this country for 14 years I still feel oppresed by days like these. I miss sunny clear-skied Madrid winter days. Oh, how I miss them!
I don't like grey days. I want black (rainy) or white (sunny) days. So with that thought in mind, I took out the cow I made a while ago to show her the depressing view. She didn't like it either.

we have had a beautiful day today, it started badly but by mid morning the sun was out and the sky was so blue, it was beautiful. lets hope the blue sky comes your way tomorrow, it would make you and your cow very happy I am sure.
