Have done  a quick garden check. A couple of bulbs I planted are peeking through, sprouts are looking good,(never grown before), Pulled some curly kale and checked bag of Christmas potatoes in greenhouse only to find some decent sized ones there. Feel very pleased with myself. Should have sprouts for dinner next week i should think

Now its raining!

Bad news about the fox, next door but one ended up electrfying an enclosure.

Morning all. Lovely day. Next rain due this afternoon. Just been to caravan to move cushions, usually leave them in but caravan has damp and ewith this weather well

A village near herre had £1m. of flood defences, they were opened about 3 months ago. This is first time they have been used and they failed so village os totally flooded and main A38 as well.

Daughter lives about 25 mins from here and it sounds like her little town is cut off. 

Still not as bad as Cornwall. I hope the forkers down there are fairing OK.

My garden looks green but it is just grass sticking up through squelch. Had an e-mail to say some roses are on there way. Cannot plant them, too wet but think I may be able to heel them in, into  raised veg bed that is empty. Am I right? Help!!

What's the weather like in your area?

Bright blue sky and sun. The next onslaught comes in this afternoon.

36mm rain overnight.

One village near here has £1mill flood defences opened with great hurrah about 3 months ago. Defences failed last night! All raods to where daughter lives are closed. Tries to ring her but no reply which i guess means she has managed to get out. I can't even say staying on main roads get yu through because they are flooded as well.

Hi all. Had trouble getting on herre AGAIN

Jo whenwe came home we were towing a caravan Not ideal in this weather but we were very concerned in case wind came. Still quiet as far as that goes at moment.

Just had tea and let fire go out whoops. SCD did it!

It was great meeting sons sort of in laws without the young ones. We are ame age, and have so much in common. Perhaps that's why son etc didn't want to encourage it. 

As we have all been told not to buy Pressies for baby we have made plans HE HE HE
