This is how I feel! Totally deflated! Pissed off, and wrecked. Not through anything other than the weather.
Ok, so this is how, this summer has been so far. I never really swear, but today, as the meticulously well knitted grey and not so grey clouds rolled in again, I had to ask myself this question.
“Why is it, when it rains in this country, it doesnt know when to F***ing stop?” So April was a wonderful month, well it was sunny and dry. I was out riding last night near Parton, West of Dumfries. Good country, no question. But the amount of trees blown down, water every where and just plain dumb weather!
I know you guys over in the states have had it worse, and I feel for you all, but by now, the 2nd of June!!!!!! We should be having wall to wall sunshine! C`mon! What`s occurring here! I have it on good authority, that its due to a “kink” in the Jet stream, West of us. Oh yeah? Or its a cycle of Global warming. That would be good, at least we could rise above the daily temp of 10 deg C?? Well? Derrrr!
Sorry for this rant, but the veggie patch has also taken a hit! My potato's are doing good, (they love water!) But the Beetroots and Leek plants are doing shit! My Cabbages didnt do anything, and the Cauliflowers are dead! So for now, I`ve given up! Its back to the supermarket!
The only good thing I hear, is that fuel has come down in price, yep! True! Maybe `cos no bugger could afford to buy any and sales were down!!!!! So they had to lower the price!
The Jeep needs new tyres, Car Tax is due next month! Thats another £450 pounds! Oh Yes!….There was one ray of light, in an otherwise day of misery, Her Majesty`s Collector of Taxes, has announced that my tax code will change! I will pay less tax, yes, I will pay less tax this year! The almighty sum of £20 pounds per year! Well “ whoop di do!” let me see? What could I buy with £20 pounds?
Oh yes! I could buy two bags of horse feed!! Well i`m quitting while I`m ahead, its nearly lunch time, and there is an up side to all this, here it is, the weeds this year are truly massive!
