Wow – we've had a lot of rain recently haven't we!
I heard on TV the other day that in the last few months we've gone from having something like the driest summer on record to the wettest one. Ridiculous!
I feel really sorry for the people who've had water coming into their homes and causing damage and disruption. I'm lucky enough to have my home situated on high ground, so I've not had to worry about flooding.
The only good thing about the copious amount of rain we've had recently, in my opinion, has been that I haven't had to clean my van for weeks and weeks!
Usually I have a good sponge-down of the paintwork and the wheels every weekend so that people can read my logo properly and see that I take pride in my business.
However, the amount of water that's fallen from the sky, and the number of puddles I've had to negotiate, has meant that my van's paintwork and tyres haven't gathered any grime at all.
It's been quite nice – looking out of the living-room window and seeing my van gleaming in the driveway without having had to lift a finger.
Still, I'd really like to have a good summer though – so if the weather could stop messing about soon that would be great!
