Why is the hosepipe ban still in place? If I wash my dirty car tomorrow I could be ultimately fined! Thames Water wont relent- it's ridiculous.
How is your garden coping with the deluge? Im on thick clay and Ive given thanks numerous times for having added a buk bag of sharp sand and another of rotted manure last year. Otherwise Id be swimming in water- wearing flippers rather than wellies.
My neighbour built a sunken patio a few years ago, and that's what it is now- sunken! The drainage couldnt cope and its under water! Their attempts to pump out te water proved fruitless, the clay means the ground is absolutley sodden. The water came back within hours.
The slugs obviously dont like it either; emerging hostas and seedings (under cloches) havent been touched- yet.
