Well you have all been busy this afternoon. 

Jo there is now flood prevention on that road from Worcester, Trouble is we couldn't get to the road too much water in between

When Kids were small our child free friends used to come on Christmas Eve and OH and friend OH would get steadily more drunk while trying to stick those stickers that are never on the toy when you get them! 

Have to catch up on all posts later. Becks not touched that ****** doll.

AAH! The fun trying out the toys. You have to make sure they are suitable. Can start again now with little one

Just written my christmas list - what I would like - much better than leaving family to guess and early so that they can sort it out with OH. 

Will start on menu later then I can begin to get dry foods in so that I don't have a whopping bill closer to the event.

HOORAY - stopped raining, but I think there is still a lot up there!

I agree. Felt really disappointed this morning

. Have always hung the calender so that the lovely photos can be seen, 2013 is too small. Us gardeners do use them for writing on. I guess looking at the spaces I will no longer be able to write what I have done ie seeds sown on it. Just too small.

Malvern Hills

Yesterday I recorded 4.5mm od rain. It hasn't stopped so today there is 25mm of rain ie 29.5 mm I am wondering how much there will be by the time it stops.

Set out on a journey to go up to Staffordshire today but had to turn back as so many roads flooded. Went through 3, but the last one was the sort where we weren't sure if car, would come out, so deep. Turned round and rowed home.

So dark

Hi Pepperted.

I have not been here long. The information you can get is really good. 

I used to manage with a little plastic greenhouse affair and grew hardy seeds using it. I have had a proper greenhouse for a year and love it. I am still trying to get the hang of vegetables, so that there is something all the time.

on their way to garden near you!

I miss the arrival of the redwings - old house. It was always a competition to see if we could get the Christmas holly in before they devastated the tree

We have had 4 starlings this year greedily gobbling through all the fat I put out. I was surprise d as I thought they migrate, loads of little birds.Strangely very few blackbirds. I was wondering if it was something to do with the wet and the fact that they tend to be ground feeders

Morning All

Today we were supposed to go up to Cannock Chase. as we got in car a geat long list of road closures because of flooding including the main road, the only road that gets us to the motorway.

So we squashed onwards to give it a go. When we hit the 3rd complete flood over a road, deep the sort you're not sure if the car will drive through. we phoned our appointment and cancelled. Then we heard motorway was blocked - crash so here we are nice and snug and warm, drinking tea and relieved we are not out there. 

As meeting was important we will have to do it another day!!

I guess Severn will br over the banks soon if not already. Didn't get far enough along to see

Rain gauge said over last 24hours had 25mm rain
