nice surprise

I have won £10 worth of garden centre tokens. I wrote a letter to a weekly garden magazine and sent a photo and they are going to print it. We are hoping to get to the garden centre this week but they have forecast severe weather again. Heavy rain and storms.This is the wettest summer here since they started records in 1914 or there abouts.

Poor Rachel is going on a trip to Bath on saturday and the bad weather is set to keep up over the weekend.She is such a nice girl and has fitted in here nicely. I am proud to call her my chinese daughter, and such is her nature she really feels like a daughter.I shall worry about her all day on saturday, on a motorway in a coach in all that rain and will be extremely pleased to see her home again.
We have shopping to do fridays but i think we will go tomorrow and hopefully it will be dry.Poor benjie hates the heavy rain, and goes out reluctantly. It is amazing to think the met office have got it so wrong. In May they predicted we would have a hotter than average summer. I think we should sack them all and listen to the old farmers, lol.
