You'll be pleased to know I can now use my Hosepipe!! Admittedly its chucked it down for most of the past month and everywhere is like a bog (hence my trousers) but Three Valleys Water has finally relented!!
I am warned that the watertable is still "very low" so expect the ban to come in after the first consecutive dry and hot days of summer.
It is blowing a gale out there!! Wonder how my flipping fence is!!
