Well this morning, I was awakened from what was a rather odd, but funny dream about the strangest of things, to the soothing sound of rain falling outside. Now I was lying there, snuggling my special Sasuke pillow and Sephy as Becky ran in with the words "Wendy! I think theres going to be a storm!" I think the look I gave her must have been one that said "When I wake up properly, I am going to kill you!" Then I sat up and there was a roar and crash of thunder and Becky was watching it out of the kitchen window.
Now I don't really mind the storms too much, in fact I like how it freshens the air. What I wasn't too happy about was the fact that the back door to the flat is frankly shit and we wound up with water coming IN! Now that was an experience where we were sitting by the back door armed with towels and the conviction that this water was NOT going to come in and fry everything electronic. What was funny was the fact that we had to mop up once the rain had finished. Neither of us were best pleased about it, but we both mucked in and got the job done.
Luckily the most damage was a slightly wet carpet that has now dried and a rug that had to go in the shed until I can get it cleaned and sorted. Although the room does seem bigger without it! We may just fling it to be honest as it wasn't really in keeping with the rest of the room, which has a modern feel to it. I do prefer a simple approach to things, even if they soon become complicated later...
I guess things seem so much lighter these days, and I am glad of this.
