It is official, I heard yesterday, here in the UK we are having the wettest drought on record! Hmmm that takes a bit of thinking about doesn't it! Nice weather for ducks and chickens. My chickens are water babies and prefer to have their freedom and get wet and bedraggled than head for their coop. They are so busy re-landscaping the garden they can't take a break from it. They continue to extend and widen borders and are excavating a rather impressive hole, I would be impressed if a Bull Mastiff had dug it, but the fact that three chickens have done it, makes it all the more remarkable for me! I don't think my other half has noticed it yet, I hope he doesn't go up the garden in the dark because he might fall victim to a large muddy hole! Well I am not going to tell him am I? What a wet and watery week. I went to 'Ladies Night' at the pool, then the flood at work, then this morning I get a call to fetch Euan ASAP from school as the school was closing due to a flood! Jeesh it really never rains but it pours. Euan and I squelched our way around this afternoon for a dog walk, walk a bit slip a bit, walk a bit, slip a lot. Mud glorious mud! The dog had a blast and came home filthy! She nearly caught a Wabbit for tea, but it looks like we will have to have pasta or something. Tonight is a rarity...the teenager has agreed to come out with me and Euan. Yep three of us, altogether. How are we going to escape this torrential rain and wateryness? Wave machines and water slides, that's how! I already heard Henry ask Euan if there were any 'Good Lookin girls' at the swimming baths...Euan replied he thought there were a few! I think he really wants his brother to come with us so has fibbed a bit!
Yippeee! It's Friday :) xxx
