Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.


Come to the Middle East they said, always hot and sunny they said…

and it rained and rained and rained...

and it rained and it rained and it rained…

Yet another dismal, wet day. The sky is dark and full of menace. During the night the lightening strikes repeatedly to create blinding flashes that burst through your bedroom curtains,  arousing you from the deepest of slumbers. Then there is the thunder…

wet weather warning!

wet weather warning!

There we are, right underneath that big, dark splodge of purple. The rain is lashing down, the roads are flooded and rainwater is leaking into our home.

We sit indoors watching the drips of rainwater form pools that slowly creep across the tiled flooring. The area becomes a slip hazard from hell and woe betide he who dares to venture that way.

Sometimes we sit on the verandah and marvel at the natural phenomenon, reminiscing about rainy days in England; welly-boots and pack-a-macs, umbrellas and plastic carrier bags hastily fashioned into rain hats. It is cool now, negative ions fill the air.

This weather is set to entertain us for the next seven days or so – a brief respite from the 40+ degree  heat of late.

happier weather

warmer times past

And it just gets better and better and better…
