So Summer 2011 is here - characterized by the start of the Test Cricket series and of course the weather.
Nothing but sun, wind and rain, and oh yes more wind this morning in Surrey making more work for the fencing repair industry.
We're going to have to bite the bullet and get most of our fencing replaced, it's long overdue but almost seems futile given the fact that we seem to get strong winds several times a year and the subsequent slow destruction of the fence. You'd have thought that in this day and age you could have fencing that can stand up far more to the elements. The design seems to have remained identical for more than half a century, certainly is no different to when I was knee high to a knee.
And of course if the wind and rain abate for long enough, we may get some play in the cricket. No problem though if it doesn't go, we can always watch 'Countdown' or highlights of previous matches... errrr..... no, satellite dishes don't like wind and rain and you get the 'No Satellite Signal is being received' message, till the rain stops.f
So what to do now, maybe update my blog..
Nah, what would I have to say?
