In the house made of wood.

It has been raining in the south west for days now. Not just manageable rain but bloody great down pours accompanied by gale force winds. I have been quite frightened lately that either the patio set is about to come crashing through the living room windows OR that the glass panels at either end of the big balcony which have been flapping scarily are about to smash to smithereens on to the decking.

Often in the mornings the sun comes out for a customary five minutes and dries up the world. This means all the wood panelling contracts again. It sounds like this…..CRRRRRREEEEEAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKKK. Yes really. Sometimes it sounds like this SNNNNNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPP. I’m a bit worried as to what is snapping although I can’t see anything.

The storm has also ripped all the flowers off my geraniums outside. They look like i’ve been at them with a blunt chainsaw.

Hurumph.

    That glass should be made to stand the movement, (building regs. BSI standards yada, yada, yada) I wouldn’t worry too much about it….though tying the patio set down might be a good idea ;o)

    Love the new banner incidentally :o)

    Weather is similar here. I went to the shops earlier and nearly drowned. The Thames looks a little bit on the “peaky” side. Thank god I’m on the 3rd floor!

    I like the new header, too. šŸ™‚

    I’m glad you’ve not been blown away. Time to put on the wet suit and flippers? šŸ™‚
