Rain rain go away.....

I've packed for sun, cold, wind and rain. Having just got soaked doing a last minute shop at Sainsbury's, I've upped the waterproof gear. All three dogs are in the car already and are steaming up the windows, David is going round checking all the windows are locked, Mac is trying to find Blue Dinosaur (without whom we cannot leave despite the fact that Blue Dinosaur has been more or less ignored since Green Frog arrived) and I'm wondering if we'll actually be driving or floating to East Sussex. My aunt (who lives in Ashford, about three quarters of an hour or so from Pett Level) is "under three inches of water and my back passage is soaked".

I hope that you're all okay where you are and that you have a fab weekend!

Have a lovely time. It should dry out. Shouldn't it?

I guess when you read this you'll be home again, not too soaked and a clear back passage... Oooh, sounds painful..

Have a lovely time dear heart. My mother said the exact same line to me earlier! I told her to get some special nickers and she hung up!

I do hope you have a great time, no one drowns and you can get the wet dog smell out of the car.

OM - we had rain, then sun, then rain, then sun, then thunder....on a loop all weekend!

CJ - we weren't as bad off as those poor people suffering in Tewkesbury. I feel for them so much, we had a little bit of a leak but no damage done.

Gwen and M&M - we bought a rubber dinghy but I worried that the dogs would put their claws through it!

DM - what is it with women of a certain age and their back passages? Do you think we'll be like that?

Lady M - we stayed afloat but I can still smell wet dog.....

I'm a mum of one, wife of one and owner to several dogs, a variety of breeds and sizes. I live in the up and coming area (or so they say) of Nunhead and have mad neighbours, strange friends and certifiable relatives. I shop locally, although I do defect to Sainsburys once a week - shoot me now local shopkeepers.
