“Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it!”
― Maya Angelou

It’s hard to ignore the weather – storm after storm has been attacking the UK and the latest is due in about an hours time where we are. The weather is appalling. Yesterday it was beautiful and the water levels had a chance to drop just a little bit – today they are right back up again.

Everyone is wishing for a break from the rain – but then we’ll likely have a hosepipe ban (although maybe we’ve had enough rain to last us a year already!) Stockbridge, a lovely little town with beautiful shops and a quaint high street, was busy piling up the sandbags yesterday. They were barricading parking spaces on the main street to stop cars driving into the floods and swamping their front doors.

As we waded through knee deep river that had spilled over onto the meadow, I spotted some Ladybirds floating downstream and clinging to bits of branch. We rescued the few that we could! It was quite bizarre though, there were around 20 little ladybirds perishing in the flood water.

Buddy again enjoyed himself immensely, and I’m hoping the deluge of photographs will make up for a busy week! Tomorrow I have some estate agents to photograph (I know, never thought I would be doing that!) and this week I have lots of work to catch up on after missing a few days due to training the past few weeks. Then the uni work will need some attention again soon as I crack on with the last few assignments and the final batches of revision notes. Photos will continue – but they may be last minute!
