So, there we were around 7.30 one morning last week, the Senior Partner and I lying in bed, drinking tea and listening to TMS (Test Match Special) on BBC Radio 4.
It was day three of the Pakistan v England Test Match in Abu Dhabi, England were bowling and Pakistan had a long way to go to catch up.
During a lull, CMJ (Christopher Martin Jenkins) described the scene before him as " a misty, moisty morning".
He said he thought it was a line from an old fashioned nursery rhyme, one that I had never heard of.
I googled it to find out more as I think it describes exactly the view that I had through the window this morning.
One misty, moisty, morning,
When cloudy was the weather,
There I met an old man
All clothed in leather
All clothed in leather,
With a cap under his chin.
How do you do?
And how do you do?
And how do you do again?
By the way, in case it interests you, England were 72 all out in their second innings. Shocking!
