Flooding!


We went for one of our favourite short walks yesterday, but didn't get far. We may be in the middle of a drought, but it's hard to understand, isn't it! This is usually the site of much swimming in the summer. Ahead of the bench is a flowing river. It was odd seeing the current flowing around, but the flooded bits staying still.

We popped out there again just before the sun went down today... the water had gone down about 4 foot already. It was sad, as there had been a swan's nest, and it had obviously been torn apart. We found one swan's egg, and also what looked like a rather large crayfish. ... lots of wildlife devastation. I feel very sorry for those with homes caught in recent flooding.

oh how sad.
It has gone crazy with dry a March and such a wet April, May isn't looking too good either.

to raise the comment count ...
and now to the village block swap:
I'm done with all the castles and could get them ready to ship this weekend, so they will get to you in time. I just have a last question, are we doing signature blocks? so that everyone knows which block is from whom?
Hope your house will be flooded with village blocks soon ...
