Ah, yeah, so...

It rained cats and dogs last night, and all day yesterday, and for a large chunk of last week. Last night as we were sitting listening to the rain, there was some sort of sound outside..Boo got up and barked and growled - I let her outside to go find the murderous intruder she could no doubt hear, but she simply growled into the darkness, sniffed around the back of the house and wanted back in out of the rain. We thought nothing more.

Then this morning as I was making my cup of tea, I raised my eyes to look out our kitchen window and noticed this:

That is an almighty slip, coming down the cliff/bank which sits at the back of our property. We figure that is what Boo heard last night. There have been little slips and slides up there since we moved in, but they are too small to photograph well, and we figured that things had been okay with that cliff for the past 40 years, so it would probably be okay for another 40...

Of course, another way of looking at it is - things have been okay for the past 40 years, so it is probably due to totally collapse any day now.
