This is getting beyond a joke. Other than feeling somewhat besieged by the constant rain, we're fine. I've got the dehumidifier running in the conservatory to stop the whole house feeling damp, but though the bottom of the garden is underwater yet again, there's absolutely no danger of us being flooded. The forecast suggests that there might be a brief respite on Sunday and Monday and I'm hoping to get out for a shopping trip, but otherwise we're just staying warm and dry indoors.
My heart goes out to the poor souls in the North of England who are taking the brunt of this abnormal bad weather.
