What a lot of things happen in a week.
Trees have come down all over the place.
Strange how a whole row of identical trees can be standing in what appears to be identical conditions, but one succumbs to the wind and falls.
The floods spread to the Thames Valley and now Parliament seems to be panicking and help is coming in faster than it did.
The Dutch have sent in massive pumps in order to help get rid of the water and there are now appeals for money to help The Somerset Level victims, in major supermarkets.
I've just come home after going out for a walk in glorious sunshine. I was over dressed and therefore too hot and I should have taken my sunglasses. It made a welcome change from the rain though.
Shouldn't we be taking Global Change more seriously with so many unusual weather patterns going on throughout the world? Is there anything really that we can do anyway?
A friend's nine year old boy said to her the other day, "Am I going to have to pay for the mistakes others have made in the past?" She answered that "Yes, it seems like his generation will have to." A bit of a sobering thought.
While the storms raged around us, I managed to finish this 1000 piece jigsaw that took a whole month to do and nearly drove me crazy! All those faces! I was seeing them everywhere!
