F’s room is particularly nice to be in during a storm. The rain beats down on the roof and outside the windows, and there is a window at just the right height for watching. From this window you can look across seven or eight rooftops – it looks like an outdoor set for Mary Poppins. This storm brought with it gigantic drops of rain which bounced off the parapet and chimney tops and glistened in the western afternoon sun. She watched until the rain stopped.
