Well they always say there are rarely more than two hot days together in an English Summer. Well here in North Yorkshire the last two days have been pleasantly warm and sunny but today I wake up to dull, cloudy conditions with a light rain falling. But much preferable to the weather in Coverack in Cornwall - a really desirable holiday destination just gearing up for the season.
In the village last night they had a flash flood with the river rushing through four feet above normal. It was all over in minutes but holiday lets and residents' houses alike were flooded. The Dunkirk spirit seems to have prevailed and the villagers assure holidaymakers that all will be back to normal in double quick time. Let's hope so - the holiday industry is the main source of income down there and also of course many people are looking forward to their holiday break.
Two hours of hard work last night at our Ukulele practice evening - very enjoyable but intense concentration needed. Today I am out to lunch with friend D - we meet about once each month to catch up on our news. That is the extent of my activity today so I may well pack a few more boxes, although I have nearly reached the stage where I can afford to relax until I get a firm moving date and then bring in a few helpers. If I am not careful I pack something and then realise I need it (e.g. shoe cleaning kit).
