Rain, rain go away....
Well, true to form it rained like crazy on my first day in England. A month's rainfall in just 24 hours. Last year they had the worst flooding in decades. I swear the government will be deporting me soon if this keeps on.
Still, it's been an interesting 24 hours in country. So far I've seen two arrests, a major traffic accident and witnessed a guy saunter off with a load of copper piping nicked from a building undergoing restoration. Some people would say that I have a gift for attracting trouble.
Lydia, on the other hand is having the time of her life playing with her cousins, Maisie and Josh so she has not really noticed the appalling summer (how can they tell?)
