After all those weeks of sunshine it now never seems to stop raining. We’ve had thunder and lightening and even hail stones on the last 4 days. We’ve had a mysterious leak in our pantry. Mopped up but no idea where the water came from. Good day for doing some indoor jobs but instead I’m surfing the net! How about you?
No, rain here for a few days. I have just been listening to the weather forecast, apparently we are due for intermittent showers tonight, some heavy. It's very grim outside, grey! I write a daily 'to do' list. I have done a bit in the garden, but the ironing will be transferred to another day. It's been on the list since Monday!
Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.
We've had plenty and well received too, garden looks better for it and my sunflowers have grown so much because of it...I'm winning! Had some brilliant rain here this morning, almost tropical size droplets but still warm and humid.
This is why us Brits are always talking about the weather, because it's so freaky, one day it's like winter, the next your baking hot and then it's tropical
There is a lot to be said for being part of a group, and the support and friendship that is gained from this.
We had two relatives celebrating their 90th birthday's over the weekend, needless to say it rained so our social distancing in the garden plans got a bit challenged (we joked that it was a shame they weren't born in the Summer!). It's tipping it down here again today, it looks like a drab November day out there!
I woke up to a sunny day today but by 10 in the morning it’s pouring down. Hopefully I’ll still get to go for a walk with my son today. I have to make the most of him while I still have him.
We’ve still not got to our van. I’m really looking forward to going but we’re going to try to take as much of our food as possible. With hubs being so disabled it’s all up to me and now I have a dodgy shoulder everything is so much harder. If this was our old van I’d know what I was going to but I’ve only managed to spend a few hours there. Just enough to make the bed and shove all the stuff I didn’t have time to find a place for into the little room and close the door. I’ll do what I have to do and then rest and take everything else slowly.
We don’t much care about the weather. It’s true we’re all obsessed with it but when I phone my dad it at least is something we can talk about.
I’ve talked my dad into celebrating his birthday a month late. He’ll be 91 on Monday and I feel bad about going to the van just before his birthday. It’s not as if we can go over and take him out. There’s nowhere to go and he’s not really well enough anyway. Hubs would find it difficult to sit in an upright chair for long, my dad doesn’t get along with YS and OS will be working. If we leave it for a month my cousin will come down from Scotland and I could make a bit of a spread. It would be better but I feel mean leaving him alone.
