About Turn!

Well I Never, Fancy That.
I saw 3 separate weather forecasts, not intentionally, this morning. 
All gave exactly the same predictions, Lots of rain today, Even more tomorrow followed by a bit less on Tuesday.

So right now the sun is streaming down, it is warm enough that doors and windows are flung wide open, Ben has been sunbathing just inside the kitchen door.

I watched some of Sunday Brunch, just to see a Baked Roasted Cauliflower Cheesecake.
Guess what we are having tomorrow.

Today I am making a Pork Masala, I saw one of my favourite chefs, Parveen Ashraf making it with chicken on James Martin,s show yesterday. I have Pork so that is what I am using.

Apart from that we are counting our blessings, many of the surrounding areas are flooded. Carmarthen is suffering and motorists are advised not to go there.
Parts of Neath are under water, and at least one village has been readied for evacuation.
As we are on the side of the valley the water has run straight past us. There are parts of the road where new rivers are running across the tarmac, but none deep enough to be dangerous.

My heart goes out to those who are bearing the brunt of this storm, there is very little that you can do in the face of nature.

Whilst this weather remains I will be taking the dogs out for an extra walk, Rufus and Herbie did get their normal 10:30 walk. I work on the premise that if we walk then it will not rain, if we do not then it will pour down. A bit of reverse psychology, in the same way that a child (and teenager) will do the exact opposite to what you tell them.

I am off now, to make hay and all that.

  1. Really wet and windy here along the south coast, it's still not cold, so a day inside playing with my sewing machine.

  2. Well, we live well up the hill from the river, but are still very much affected by the flooding. You are lucky you're OK where you are.

  3. It's chucking it fown here in North Herts and has been all day. It's not a floody area, thankfully, but I really didn;t fancy the walk I had planned.

  4. I was wondering how you were faring with the weather when I saw the forecast. Glad to read you are ok.
    Very wet here, but warm!

  5. We got a bit of snow last night, but the upcoming week is supposed to be very nice for a change (hoping that is true). Stay dry and warm.

    God bless.

  6. Lots of rain here but fortunately no flooding...the lanes do get a bit waterlogged but this time it's gone as quick as it came, thank goodness. Although I watched most of the show, I missed the segment about the cauliflower cheesecake, so will be interested to see how it goes for you.

  7. Beautiful day here, finally. Supposed to be in the low teens all week. We had the roof over our deck replaced today. It's Sunteck and got smashed to pieces during the hailstorm we had in August.


I love to read comments so take the plunge and join the conversation.
