What is this wet stuff falling from the sky???
My friend Rolo asked me where we were finding all the sunshine over my way? Well, I have to say, we had a week of GLORIOUS weather - in fact, it was positively warm but then, this morning, all this wet stuff started appearing - it took me a while to remember what it was - RAIN - as it's been the driest July on record apparently, where I live 'Down Under' so I was a bit surprised when I woke up this morning to see puddles (I LOVE puddles - just made for running through aren't they??) and saw water coming from the sky. So, it's been a wee bit squidgy and damp today and this afternoon, the rain started LASHING down, I mean LASHING and the wind was absolutely howling. I LOVE this weather - it reminds me of home, Ireland! But, I am always a bit worried when this weather hits as to the walk situation - rain is all very good and I know we need it for the farmers and the dams so we have enough water over summer, but walks are the highlight of my day so there were a few anxious moments:
