I just thought I'd share my joy. As I type this the rain is pouring down and I couldn't be happier.

:cheers:

It's been raining for the past week here. I was delighted at first, the plants outside were drying out and the rain really helps my hayfever, and it's an excuse to do hardly any work! A week on and I'm sat here with a stinking cold, my cabbages are eaten by slugs and I've been working my arse off in the polytunnel the whole time, so no rest. I don't want to come off as a miserable git, I admire your enthusiasm, BUT I am a miserable git and you everyone else should be miserable too!

Don't worry, Badger - the rain passed over us during the night and was last seen heading in a south-easterly kind of direction. It's on its way!

Thanks for your loving support! :lol:

We had some as well. Was thrilled at first, until a soaking wet cat jumped on my lap - yuk.

We have had a reasonable amount, but still not enough. I'm seriously thinking about hiring out a tribe of Native Americans to come and dance me some rain!
