I looked up what doldrums mean and some say it comes from the old mariners describing a belt of weather between the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean.
- All in a hot and copper sky,
- The bloody Sun, at noon,
- 'Right up above the mast did stand,
- No bigger than the Moon.
- Day after day, day after day,
- We stuck, no breath no motion;
- As idle as a painted ship
- Upon a painted ocean.
- Samuel Coleridges " Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner"
- Enough of that, it's a beautiful day, the washing is hanging on the line a new raised bed
needs to be made and I need to make up a potato salad for the Coronation Street Party we are going to.
- And there are baby cygnets in the moat, it's time to find better waters to sail in....
