Miserable, cold, wet, grey, it's a total tragedy, I forgot a cup of tea this morning. Sorry, did you think I was on about the weather. This is more important, I mean I had to pour it down the sink. That poor tea bag, all those innocent leaves, oh do I feel faint now, there's only one thing for it, I'll have to put the kettle on.
Isn't the weather awful again. The garden is under about an inch of water, it just can't drain quick enough. I had to take my son to college this morning, that was fun, plenty of lying water, flooded areas and spray to contend with.
I do feel sorry for the people who are suffering with flooding, I can't imagine anything worse than having an unstoppable force such as water penetrating and ruining your beloved home.
It's not as if the insurance companies jump straight into action either, some of the people are effectively homeless for up to a year waiting to get work done, work which is possible to complete within a month.
Today's upload is from a while ago and was taken from the hide at Rowlands Gill near Newcastle. I couldn't believe my luck when I spotted this Red Kite flying overhead. The day had been rubbish up until that point, nothing really doing, a swan and a duck, that was about it. I grabbed a few shots of this beauty. The sky was superb and clear as you can see, I thought then whilst cooped up in the hide how wonderful it would be to be truly free like this bird. All that open space, peace and stress free, what a dream.
V2 is for Mick, Happy Birthday mate, have a crackingly rusty day.
