Here we are on August Bank holiday with what is fast becoming our normal weather!
And thats what is so shocking! Cornwall is not known as the Cornish riviera for nothing.....we are renowned for having glorious, non stop sunshine! But not any more!
About a month ago we realised that our pathway around the house was becoming a hazard to all my elderly visitors. We started the ball rolling in plenty of time to get all the crazy paving that goes right round the house replaced by paving stones. The contractor failed to arrive on the only rain free day last week so the builder started to make good! A term I've come to regard withe great suspicion.
On this occasion it meant taking up all the loose stones and filling in the gaps. These gaps have now become soggy messes.
This weather is set to go on for a week....all the old, infirm and those in prams are going to find negotiating a passage into the house a bit fraught if not actually dangerous!
I am simply fed up with it all ..... from ruining weddings to creating havoc at all sorts of venues and stopping my poor dog from lying in the sun which is pretty much all he wants to do most days not to mention the dreaded slugs!
This all started when a drought was declared...can we now declare a waterlogged condition? A national emergency needing a bloke called Noah to start building soon! Please!
