Good Afternoon, after the weather we have had in the last almost 48 hours I suppose we are lucky to still be almost dry. We have had 46 hours of pouring rain there has been lots of flooding up here dams almost bursting, but of course it will not be on the national news as it is happening in Scotland which is of no consequence as any news that happens up here ever is. Just listen the next main news program and you would hardly know we exist up here in the frozen north. Rant over.
We have not been out very much since our Inverness non trip just a bit of a weekly shop and the morning paper today. At the start of this entry I said almost dry that is because we have been getting water in our front door through the letter box have never had this before it must have been the way the wind was blowing will have to watch out for this during the winter. I has been a very wet summer if I can call it that in June we had 117% of our usual rainfall and I shudder to think what the July figure will be when it comes out in our local newsletter next month. Stuart has not managed to get the grass cut for the last 2 weeks as it has never been dry enough think I will have to buy a goat or maybe a sheep or two. Lol
Have been doing my collecting of free DVD’s again with the Daily Mail ,this time it has been Vanity Fair, Middlemarch, A Room With A View, Mansfield Park, Tess of the Durbervilles, Pride and Prejudice, David Copperfield, Emma, Tom Jones, North Hanger Abbey, and my very favourite Rebecca. I think I have managed to collect most of them even though we don’t live near to W H Smith or Tesco where you collect them free with the paper. Am looking forward to watching them come those winter days or even a summer days when we can’t get out on one of our excursions.
We have the plumber in just now as our toilet is leaking and I have had to have a boil to collect the water that has been dripping don’t know what has been causing this but hopefully it will be fixed today. I think that’s it for today oh forgot to mention I have my buddy list up and working again I have not had it since I changed to my laptop it will be nice to see all whose online etc again. Till next time .Love
