It’s back

But unlike a welcome friend, I wish it would simply sod off.
I’m talking about the rain.

We had to take one of the yellow rain suits back this morning as the hood had not been seamed properly.
Not that it was a problem, the sun was out, so we didn’t need to wear it at the time.
It was changed without fuss, so we are definitely ready now, but I admit I am in no immediate hurry to test-drive them.

Actually, we’re supposed to have thunderstorms this afternoon, so I was glad Hubby dropped me off by the grain house on the way home and I walked the dog along the lock front and back to the Marina.
She performed as expected, so although there is no rush or necessity to take her out again just yet, when I go up to the ladies shortly I’ll take her with me.

For years, the weather in the UK has been the brunt of jokes and one of the favoured topics of conversation. I suppose it’s one of the safer subjects as no-one can be held responsible and it doesn’t tax or shaft you for a percentage.
It’s not that I actually mind getting wet, it’s just being able to dry off that is proving a challenge these days, but we won’t be defeated.

According to the Environment Agency website, the water level here has risen by half a meter. That’s a LOT of water when you consider the area it covers.
Mind you, we are living in a Marina and the river Avon is just over the way, so there is literally water, water, everywhere (but we have a lot to drink!)

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
