QUICK UPDATE

On Sunday we did a 300 mile road trip, stopping for lunch and a saunter through the rain forrest. This is beautiful countryside, if a little wet at times! But being from England this is no hardship to me. Unfortunately I had been watching the weather forecast both for here and New York before I travelled. The weather had been really good right up until we arrived then it turned bad on us. I had packed for good weather so I am basically stuffed. I had to resort to buying a umbrella in New York and yesterday I gave in and bought myself a warm cardigan. I remember last time I came to Seattle I had to buy a macintosh but I never learn. The story of my life.

Today it's tipping it down again so we are going to a shopping outlet and then lunch. Luckly I'm with friends and it's good to actually stay at home and relax with them. I'm having a wonderful time.

The next place I visit is guarantee sunshine, so that's when my packing of light clothing will work! I hope!!

Nuts in May

Nuts in May is behind the times - it's getting brighter and much warmer here now you've gone! I hope you don't get blamed for bringing English weather to Washington.

Where are you off to next, then? Are we going to have another competition?

That makes me feel better Maggie, I would hate it if I was here in the bad weather when it was hot and sunny at home!

Retiredandcrazy said...

Now DogLover, you have just rained on my parade! And it may amuse you to know that I am getting the blame for the weather, both here and in New York. Lets hope my next stop stays as warm as it is now.

Nevada? not! You are on the wrong continent Ash.

Wrong continent!?!
