Bloody rain (and wind)!
It's raining again! It feels like it has been raining non-stop for weeks. A slight exaggeration maybe as there have been a few nice days but on the whole it has pi**ed it down consistently! To make it worse my house is at the top of the hill and the back wall faces south west; directly into the worst of the weather. The storms come straight off the sea and seem to aim straight for my back door! It has also been really windy; at night it blows down the chimney and shakes the walls either side of the chimney breast and during the day it drives the rain against the windows and means that you get soaked just walking a few yards. I have been waiting for a clear day so that I can wash the bikes but so far we have not had one and the forecast for the rest of the week is more rain!
