Well I woke this morning to the sound of the rain lashing against the window…it was really giving it some welly. I opened the curtains and yuk is all I can say. The road we live on is what is termed as an ‘unadopted’ road which means no-one takes any responsibility for it, as a result in the summer it’s a dust bowl and in the winter it’s just a length of track full of pot holes! This morning the drains were having trouble with the sheer volume of water and it was laying in the potholes.
To the front of the house, where there used to be a lovely old house, which has since been demolished the builders were building!! And they’d brought their friend along with a crane…oh the joys…I did consider going back to bed and starting again!!
We settled down for lunch and you know when you’re inside and the house is warm, your clothes are dry and you have a full tummy, life isn’t so bad! Charlie was curled up in his basket snoring and we watched a movie.
On my sideboard I have some lovely sweetheart roses that have passed their best so I took a quick snap and played around on Photoshop a little more this afternoon. I’m still loving it, I go on to YouTube and look for tutorials, there are thousands there…keeps me out of trouble!!
Ah Tea Time…what shall I have….in the kitchen I found some scones that I bought the other day, I toasted them, it seemed the right thing to do on such a grotty day. They were delicious with a massive mug of steamy hot coffee!
The Hubster is now off to work so I’m going to meet a friend with her dogs for a very quick circuit around the woods whilst it’s dry, well dryish!!
