Terrible weather

It has been raining since Sunday evening and it seems it is not going to stop until tomorrow afternoon. I am fed up with it. The cellar flooded last night and we were up and down emptying buckets. We gave up in the end. Luckily when we got up this morning it had all gone and when I checked last it had not returned.

Looking back over the last few months I worked out that we have had about 800mm of rain in the gauge since April.  This time last year we were about to have a mini heat wave but this year I put the heating on to stop it getting too damp. Usually the heating doesn't get used until  mid October.

 On a lighter note here is the little chap I made for John's birthday

he was in the current Molly Makes magazine. I had to redo his legs and body because stuffing the legs and inserting them in the little slits and then sewing the rest of the body did not work. I knew it wouldn't but carried on. next time I will trust my instincts!

I am sorry that you are having to deal with terrible weather. Hope it doesn't turn out like April when it rained for 3 weeks almost continuously.
Ah the little fella is too cute. He looks like that cartoon character Snoopy

You've certainly had it bad over your way. We've been lucky here as it's rained but not as bad.

Awww the little chap is so sweet:)
