The Sunday Times ran an article where they were suggesting that Meteorological activity in the Pacific is going to spill into the Atlantic then ride the winds and currents to bring us a wet summer.
What the hell are you doing reading the Sunday Times? That's not for Scots northern-resident ragpotting educationalists. It's for London drivers, the movers and shakers,, possibly also the slightly lesser types (who get moved and shaken) and for looking up how much it will cost to swap your merc/audi/bmw. Or perhaps tho you are reading it for research purposes? Ah yes, I see.
BTW, hope you noticed the MS Comic Sans typeface on boat?
No - you all missed the point - I'm just glad that I have a motorsailor and that I can watch everyone getting wet from the warmth and dryness of my wonderful wheelhouse, cardigan, slippers and cocoa in hand - perhaps even a duster to get a bit of housework done.
Anyway I'm glad I take the Sunday Times - excellent Business, Travel and Money sections and none of they daft English Poofers writing about germutlich and ersatz like they do in the Observer - Jessies.
Well thats a sad story. Normally all we need to do is be seen to be arranging a garden party - I believe you call them Barbies? (How quaint - they are dolls over here). The heavens normally open then. You seem to have taken measures above and beyond the call of duty and I can't think what to suggest.
You have me thinking, I wonder if there's a future in exporting rainwater?
Yeah, we tried lighting a BBQ, even tried lighting a wood powered one as the gas one didn't create rain. Still no go. We are going camping again tonight for the weekend so hopefully it will work this time.
Just got back, nothing....even threw out the ultimate rain bait and slept in the open sans tent for two nights. Not a bloody drop, only a nosy goanna that wanted to see if I was edible. It went off in the direction of the unfinished sausages in the frying pan as they smelt better.
