The Wonderful British Weather....

So my two week holiday started yesterday...the day dawned gloomy but warm and first thing on my holiday agenda was a lovely long walk with Polly!
Polly always get good walks and plenty of exercise but it's nice when I'm not tied to a schedule and can meander along and take in the countryside a little more.

The walk was great and when we got back I sorted dinner out and we ate...just something simple before settling with a cuppa. My idea was to enjoy a few chapters of my book with a cuppa whilst my dinner settled and then off to the allotment...then I remembered I live in England....

Rainy Afternoon.
Yep, you've guessed absolutely poured down with rain!!

It didn't start that bad though...first of all it was really light 'misely' stuff so I decided to go to the allotment anyway...I even got a few pics so I can show you just how bad it is.

I don't think they need any explanation. It simply is a mess...though I know it won't take long to sort out. With the rain I thought I'd have a look and jot down what seeds I need for this year...surprisingly I don't need that many so that was quite a nice surprise...I did think as the weather was bad that I would get some seeds sown but that was when I found out that I was totally out of the visit really was a bust and I went home!!

I did actually manage to get a little done today...first port of call was sorting out the glass from the greenhouse that will no longer be. The good glass was stored in the shed...(at least I have plenty of spare panes now) the broken glass taken home and disposed of safely, the shed sorted out, the slab path sorted and a few weeds pulled!!

I will get down again tomorrow and get a little more done over the next few days and at the weekend show you my amazing progress (at least hope I will!!)

Well thats about all I have for you in this post...pray for good weather for me over the next few days!!


  1. I think I'm getting a touch of English weather here too. It looks similar here and it's been raining a little at a time for the past several days.

  2. I hope you get some good weather, the forecast here looks good for the next week so I hope it's the same where you are.

  3. There is always that dread in my stomach the first time I visit the allotment after winter and it never is quite as bad as I think it is going to be. Like you said, yours shouldn't take long to clear - the thought is always worse than getting stuck in! Happy allotment season, wishing you fine daytime weather and gentle showers at night! Xxx


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
