Operation.... Dry my washing!
Today has been glorious, the calm before the storm some would say!
I went to Mums this morning to blow dry her hair and cut Eds, only with clippers, a hairdresser I am not!
I've managed to dry three loads of washing, all the big quilts, towels and dogs bedding. We put down old quilt covers or towels by the front and back doors just to help with the paw prints but by the end of the day they are black so I wash between two and four every day. I have to hang them over the banister or the dining table chairs every night to dry.
So today I've been in and out as soon as something is dry it's in and replaced by something wet.
Beavers has been canceled as two of the leaders are ill, unfortunately that doesn't help us as we've still got band rehearsal, Scouts and Youth club.
Malc is planning to drive round the long way as the road is still shut and then leave the mini bus the other side of the road block and walk back through and then walk back to go pick up each of the children as and when, he's got to do this three times! I'm not sure when the rain is meant to start tonight but I think he could be getting wet!
It'll save going round and back the long way wasting a lot of petrol.
We've been out in the garden this afternoon making sure everything is secure as we're predicted a severe storm here over the next 24/48 hours.
I've got the candles handy just in case, I've never knitted by candlelight so I'll let you know how I get on! Hopefully the candles won't be needed.
So to all you readers particularly in the South West keep yourselves warm, dry and safe.
