Things that make you go 'hmm'…
Back to reality
Just a very quick post to say I am back from sunny Nice and don’t I just know it. The weather here is horrendous and I received a phone call from the Environment Agency to say there is a flood warning – and my house is ‘likely to flood’. The river is certainly the highest I have seen it and is spilling into my garden this time. I have been watching it anxiously all afternoon but it has gone dark now so I can’t see properly if it is still rising….
It has finally stopped raining but as more is forecast for tonight, along with severe gale force winds tomorrow, I am very worried. I am supposed to be going to a party tonight but am very loathe to leave my house unattended. Of course, both my boys are away so I am torn quite what to do. If the water starts to get too close to the house, I suppose I should start to carry precious stuff upstairs. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that!
Remind me why I bought this house? Oh yes, the pretty stream running through the garden…..
Update: It’s now the next morning, I did go to the party and had a great time and it finally stopped raining so the river level dropped. Phew! Panic over!
I am back to making books, will post a new one later if I get it finished in time.
