It's absolutely chucking it down

Tony has gone to Manchester to watch the footie.  Barking mad if you ask me.  I have offered to run up and down a field and kick a ball and spit if he wants to give me the season ticket money and the thirty quid petrol money :-)   I am sitting here in the conservatory listening to the rain hammering on the roof. The garden will really soak it up and the flower borders will be all fresh and beautiful again. It has been a really strange day of glorious sunshine and heavy downpours.  On the way back from my walk this morning I watched a huge black cloud coming my way. I hadn't been home long when the heavens opened and boy did it rain. I think the forecast for tomorrow isn't too bad but Sunday looks pretty miserable.. It's funny how quickly I forget that we have had weeks and weeks of sunshine. My lovely son is in Tenerife with his girlfriend... He will come home with heckuva tan as he only has to look at a light bulb and he goes brown. I have to build up gradually and I do go a nice golden brown as long as I am careful. I think I may be rusty in a day or two if the rain doesn't stop. The noise is deafening and I won't be surprised to hear of flash floods on the local news. I bet the farmers are glad they got their harvest in.

  2. Here in the South it has rained heavily all day. We have been longing for it and now already we are wondering if it is going to stop. As you say we soon forget all the sun we have had and saying that it was too hot. We wanted rain but of course not for it to go on and on. The British do love to complain about the weather.

    1. It can rain between 2am and 5am every night... Not a lot to ask is it. :-)

  3. The worst part of the heavy rain is that it batters the flowers, that and when the cats go out to use their toilet ( the garden), they come in with muddy feet. lol

  4. "I have offered to run up and down a field and kick a ball and spit if he wants to give me the season ticket money and the thirty quid petrol money :-)" - LOL! I would, too :)

    All we want is for things to be orderly, right? Rain and sun in the right amounts, at the right times!

  5. I wish you could send that rain to us in California. It has been so dry here. I water the garden early in the morning, so the flowers and veggies don't fry in the hot sun.
