I’ve just managed to take Rick out for his afternoon walk between showers. It has rained on and off all day and some of the downpours have been very heavy indeed. The beck in the village is running again after almost drying up completely last week. Barff Lane is completely under water and we had to turn back as I didn’t want to paddle through the muddy water. The Yorkshire Dales got very badly hit yesterday by torrential rain and many homes got flooded. I hope Weaver in Leyburn has stayed safe and dry.
This time last week we were basking in the sunshine and enjoying the garden. Right now the flowers are looking very sad and soggy.

The good news is that the builders are arriving on Monday or Tuesday next week to start work on my kitchen. Bring on the dust and rubble!
