Ark wanted. Must be waterproof and in good condition

This is seriously not funny. It has now been raining most of the time for three weeks, and all of the time for three days. And it's cold. People are lighting wood burners and putting on heating.

Hello? This is, if I'm not mistaken, July. We call that summer, in the trade. Holiday time. Is someone having a laugh?

According to Metéo France it's all because the Azores anti-cyclone has settled in 'the wrong place'. Well, if you happen to be reading this, Azores anti-cyclone, would you like to get off your backside and move? Like, now? Please?

Must go. Off to weed the paddy fields.

Well, you could always come to England. I can't claim it's hot, but it is pleasant, dry, and we had a l-o-n-g lazy seven hour lunch in a friend's garden on Sunday, when it WAS hot.

Hmm. Thanks for the thought, but a wet and chilly Ariege will always win over a hot and dry UK for me! Still, glad you're being able to profit from being outside.

It's still raining, BTW ....

Sorry, all arks in our area are highly sought after. We are experiencing sunshine at the moment but this year has certainly been a wet one for us as well.

Glad you're getting a bit of sun at last, Sandee!

And (sshhhhh) it's just stopped raining here, and there's something I don't recognise in the sky ....
