Alpha Challenge #24 - St Swithin's

OK so my special day wasn't in my dictionary but I couldn't miss this special day here in the UK.

St. Swithin's Day is 15 July, a day on which tradition says that whatever the weather is like that day, it will continue so for the next forty days.

I included the rhyme about this on my page.

And to keep in line with the The Craft Barn's Alpha Challenge and word definitions I added a couple of "SW" words which are in keeping with my theme; for the rain > Swim and for the sunshine > Swell and Swelter.
