And in Britain we...

You may have noticed that I have used the excuse about the weather to moan about my fellow Britons...moaning! Indulge me, I'm British and I really enjoy moaning.
At the moment we are in a drought situation with hosepipe bans and such. This is because for decades we have had rain on average three days a week and this has dropped in the last few years. Yes, we are an island surrounded by water and, no, we have not replaced the drainage systems left by the Romans centuries ago.
This week has been quite wet and windy. I have been able to use the old saying to children that used to annoy me when I was a child and it rained hard - "We needed it!" So I have had a distraction from my continued problems with Gloria's health. She has been referred to another specialist in the last hour.
Regardez my picture of the fence taken on my Android mobile 'phone a moment ago. I'll do something to aid its plight in a moment.
