It’s always sunny 3 days to the future…

I have moaned before about the rain, but it seems relentless and has followed us to Northern Ireland. Every day it’s raining, then the sun comes out for about 30 minutes along with every dog walker, then rain, rain, and more bloody rain. Yesterday, I decided to go to the town park and walk around…

Bloody Rain…

I don’t know how many UK readers I have, but I am sure if you live in the North as we do, you are sick of the rain by now. We live on the coast, and we also have our own microclimate, however, for the last three weeks, we have had nothing but rain, rain,…
