Some like it hot....



especially in July, but we're certainly not getting it here at Scribbly Cottage. The weather has been utterly vile. The flooding caused by the torrential rains hasn't affected us , as we live in an area well-served by drain ditches and dykes and also we live on a small hill. However, the rain has lashed so long and hard it's decidedly dank and chilly of an evening and the last two nights have seen us firing up the stove in the sitting room! In mid-July this is unheard of for us! So take a long look at the photo...it's a rare beast!


And here's another rare beast ......along with his dog. The dog sleeps downstairs, but every morning, as soon as someone goes down to make a coffee, he slips upstairs and snuggles down with whoever is still in bed. He's not everso particular about where he puts his paws and a rude awakening can ensue.

Oh I have been soooo tempted to start the woodburner...but no, it is summer, and I will not, on principle, let the wind and rain do its worst...well...ok, if you're doing it too...

That stove looks wonderful - why not! We're not cold, just very very wet...
We have a bed-sneaking dog too, so that is a familiar doggy expression there - how can you resist!
