What a surprise...

HOSEPIPE BAN
AND
WATER RESTRICTIONS END!



After a couple of (typically British) weather obsessed weeks, this will definitely be my last comment on the subject of the rain – other than to say that the weather so far today is living up to expectations. Heavy rain is forecast, predictions are for the wettest July since records began!

Somehow I DON'T think I'll be to be needing my sunglasses...

  1. Just so that you don't feel too depressed... all is damp here too!! Tim is painting his "office" in the longère and I think I'll hibernate today [with a good book] and think about bottling the épine noire we've just made.

    1. Hi Pauline,

      Just so long as you don't hibernate with the epine noire and bottle the book ...

  2. Following on from the wettest June, at least it is consistent! Daughter returned from her school trip to Paris on Saturday looking tanned, I am my usual winter pale!

    1. Hi Diane,

      I'm just moaning. Some places, like Hebden Bridge, really do have something to moan about!

  4. Out of interest, have you seen folks pulling out their hosepipes now the ban is lifted?

    Just wondered.

  5. Hi GaynorB. My British friends are always complaining about the rains. This time there was flooding all around.

    1. Hi Denise,

      For once I really do think we have something to moan and complain about. I have never known a summer like it.

      It seems that our part of France, although better than the UK, is far below expctations.

      I suppose, unless there is a vast improvement, we'll just carry on moaning ...

  6. It has been too dry, then too wet. Now we can complain about it being too cold because it jolly well is. There does not seem to be any chance of it being too hot.
