Gray, wet winter morning
The clouds are thick and low, the rain is steady, a perfect day to settle down to the dreaded tax return. Tax returns are such a joy! Our Government some years ago in it's wisdom simplified our system from the time honoured once a year to - oh joy! - five tiemes a year, four quasterly statements plus a whopper for the whole year as well. Now how simple is that! It certainly gives the accountants something to do studying up the annual changes in the system in a book the size of the St.James version of the bible! As for me, it needs a day just like this (4 degrees C outside and wet) to motivate me to get it over and done with....I hope.
