Three Months

Photo copy: Maggie May

The weather continues to pour with rain and the air feels cold and everything is dank and depressing outside and yet, the Government still says we are in a drought. Some areas but not ours, are undergoing a hosepipe ban.
As the rain has been steadily coming down for practically all of April, continuing into May, I find this hard to believe and it is a great pity that the rain cannot be saved and that it just drains into the sea. Many areas are now under flood alert.
Still the ducks are happy.

I walked up the hill to the hospital for my three monthly check up this week wondering what they would say. However, I suddenly realised that I felt better than I had for a long time, so was fairly optimistic.
After examining all the likely places for lumps, I was given the all clear for another three months.
That really does give me a boost.
I have been assured they would fit me in quickly to see a consultant and give me a scan if I had any symptoms, so that is good to know.
Harry has an appointment to see a neurologist next week, so lets hope that he gets good news too. In the mean time, his new cancer drug is making him feel much better.

So things are looking up..... if only this wretched weather would change.....

We sure could use some of that rain. We are in the midst of an extreme drought.
Sigh!!

Wonderful news, Maggie! I hope Harry gets an equally good report.

It's raining off and on here, too; I wish I had a dozen rainbarrels to save some of it for later this summer:)

Great news for you both.
And yes, wouldn't you think an island surrounded by water, with this much rain would be able to conserve and use it?

I am pleased to read that things are looking up for you and Harry. There are still some aspects of life that are unaffected by the weather.

Maggie, that's the best thing I've heard all week! Thanks for sharing it with us, it's made my (bank holiday) weekend.
And yes, it is nice to know that if you have anything suspicious, they will see you quickly.
Enjoy the weekend! I hope the weather improves, it's been awful here too, and cold, but sure, it's good to be alive and healthy!

That's brilliant news, you must be dancing through all that rain!

I agree; the drought is so ridiculous isn't it, surely they should be doing more to save all this rain.

I'm always surprised when rainwater isn't harvested in a drought.
