This is without doubt the worst year we have had for weather since we came over ten years ago! Today is 18c, overcast, and drizzly, we might just as well be in England. The last week has been exactly the same, and we are fed up with it. Lynn and I have both had bad colds, in my case one of the worst I have had in years. The only benefit of all the rain is the lovely green scenery all around. I have had a lot of problems with the pool this year, and along with adding loads of chemicals, have had to have the sand in the filter replaced. It now sounds to me as though the circulation pump may be close to failure, more expense.
We have not been out anywhere much for the last six weeks, because of our colds and the weather. Last week we had six people staying, four just for the week. It must have been awful to come all this way and find such terrible weather. The other two are here for a further week and hopefully will get some sunshine before they leave. Two more will be joining us later today.
