I'm just wondering if our Lovely Builder is a Weather Prophet - when he refurbed our roof he recommended replacing the old shallow guttering with a newer higher capacity type - seems like he knew we were in for tropical monsoons ........

Fg I'd planned to clean the bathroom today, and then I discovered that OH had done it yesterday!   So other than sort that pile of paperwork (and I don't think that'll get done today) there's not a lot to do - I might bake a cake - and prepare something Middle Eastern ish with some lamb cutlets and aubergines ...... otherwise a film sounds good.

I could make a C*mas Shopping list ........

We're in for a heatwave at the weekend.  Our poor plants won't know what to do with themselves
