Pissing Weather!

Winnie trying to get into the festive mood
This weather lark has been somewhat irritating. The train service to and from the North Wales coast has been cancelled due to the flooding and my trip to Manchester today to visit old friend Nige has therefore been postponed .
Now, we had not planned a giddy-kipperish trip round the gay bars of canal street ( a sedate trip to the corner house cinema and a civilized bottle of white was the planned excitement of the evening) but I am disappointed not to have escaped the blustery brown wet of Wales.....for the blustery grey wet of inner  city centre Manchester.
The weather continues to reek havoc.....Chris' family beach hut has just been washed away from Broadstairs' beach.....

  1. What a pity about the little beach hut. Could it be put upright again, or has it gone completely? Perhaps if the latter, it is maybe providing sanctuary for some large fish now.

  2. Oh dear, those winds and floods sound daunting, best to stay home safe and snug. I am sure Winnie approves that plan.

  3. Just different shades if wet hey? Hope the beach hut can be recovered.

  4. Not at all nice - the effects of the weather, I mean. Must be a consolation (to some extent) to have Winnie help keep your spirits up.

  9. Goodness crazy weather everywhere.
    I don't buy little outfits for the The Square Ones (I am making Kilts for their Christmas presents though) but I bought a Christmas Tree hat much like Winnie this year for thehamish. He wears it with that look on his face that say... "oh no you didn't"

    cheers, parsnip

  11. Winnie seems to be sooo adorable and of good nature. :)

    I thought you'd all be used the the shitty weather over there since you were born, raised and live in it. I for myself just can't wait for our first big blizzard and have my plans cancelled. It's so much more fun to make snow angels...

    and shovel the snow to make huge snow banks! :)

    Hugs

  14. Winnie is adorable, but I'm so sorry about the flooding. Franklin is showing off our Christmas decorations today in his post.

    Love,

  17. Just finished reading a very lady-like, lace-decorated tea-time blog to find the next one on my reading list was titled 'Pissing Weather'. I almost snorted my English Breakfast. Still chuckling.

  20. This weather is just disappointing many for the holidays.
    We have cold temperatures, ice and snow.
    I'm sorry to hear about Chris' families home.

  22. I've experienced fire, drought and earthquake, but never flood. Living in water-starved California, it's sometimes hard to fathom having too much of the stuff. Winnie has the sweetest face -- love those triangle ears perched on top of her head.

  23. Sorry to hear about the beach hut. Hope the weather clears for you all soon. ♥

  24. Amazing how localised weather can be. I have family visiting Dublin at the mo who are experiencing reasonably mild, cloudy but fine weather yet not far away in Ryl there are awful floods. An awful time of the year for floods - cold and wet - poor things. At least when it floods here it is not cold.
