Sorry for the profanity. I know you don’t come here for that (statistically, you’ve accidentally arrived trying to find porn site Tube8.com, for which I inexplicably rank. Bwahahahaah, suckers!)
Twice this year, we’ve been on holiday with the kids – eager to show them the beauty of the English countryside. The first time, we were washed out after a single night during the heaviest rains seen since God made Noah build a dinghy.
The less said about our second disastrous foray into the wilds the better.
The little video on the right shows you what’s happening where we’re headed on Saturday. Yep, the Lakes have just had 7 inches of rain today, followed (they think) by another 6 inches tomorrow, and if the BBC weather report is to be believed, about the same on Saturday.
I guess if the car didn’t have a hole in it it might not matter so much. There’s a Google Wave invite for anybody who can lend me a dinghy by the weekend, because come Hell or (more likely) high water we’re going to the Lakes, much in the manner of the ill-fated Griswold family in National Lampoon’s European Vacation. I will not be beaten!
