Rain, rain, enough already.

Boy, can it rain. Moody great clouds, you’ve made your point, yeah? How about you go somewhere else now? It’s been raining for weeks. I daren’t go down to the cellar because I just know it’ll have flooded a bit, and the labels will have floated off our wine supply. And our tinned tomato supply. And maybe even the twinnage’s baked beans. Oh, and can you imagine what it’s done to the industrial quantities of tissues that the Stoic Spouse buys in bulk? (And I do mean in bulk. Seriously, come the apocalypse, you really need to pop round to our house: we have non-perishables a-plenty.)

Did I tell you about the time the Stoic Spouse went down there without bothering to put the light on after it had rained lots, and I heard him plodding down the steps: thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, thud, SPLASH. “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!” I shouldn’t say this, but his comic timing was perfect, a fact that was understandably lost on him at the time. Sorry, Stoic Spouse.

Oh, and whilst we’re on the subject of the cellar, rumour has it – stop me if I’ve told you this already – rumour has it that there was once a tunnel from our cellar (we live in a converted brewery, remember) to the pub over the road, presumably so the beer made here could be effortlessly transported to its destination. I don’t know whether there’s any truth in the rumour, but I’ve often wondered about poking about a bit down there, trying to find it. Wouldn’t it be cool to be able to scurry through the tunnel, just in time for last orders?

This was going to be a post about yarn, and the ever-expanding rainbow afghan, but it’s been derailed by water, wine, and beer. Tomorrow there will be a post about crochet, I promise. Unless you fancy some wine?

  1. Oo – a tunnel to the pub? Perfect house! Looks like you need some racking in the basement for the Stoic Spouse’s bulk purchases!

  2. Not quite perfect: I should live in a vineyard. 🙂

  3. I certainly know what you mean about the rain !!!!! the tunnel sounds quite probable it really would be great to prove the rumour, our cottage doesn’t even have foundations and the amount of rain we are having is beginning to cause a little concern

  4. Would be amazing to find the tunnel. Mr H would move in in a flash! Hate to tell you but the local forecast is for at least 10 more days of rain! Sorry 🙁

  5. Living in a brewery AND a tunnel to a pub! Beer really must be good, that’s all I can say!

  6. Arrrrr this rain just doesn’t want to go away 🙁 wow cellar leading into a tunnel …worth exploring 🙂

  7. I’m so sorry to hear of all that rain! My poor arthritic joints are aching for all of you. ;( Won’t it be nice when we can all have more pleasant weather ? {Sigh} In the meantime, we’ll just keep on crafting to save our sanity. I have to agree, though that snow is better than the amount of rain that you are all suffering. I have my fingers, toes, and eyes crossed for you for an end to the rain.

Please do leave a comment - I love to read them.
