I hear there’s a lot of flooding going on. LikeLike Yup, buckets of it. It’s been raining for months now, with the occasional 8-hour heatwave inbetween. Luckily we haven’t flooded here, although I live on a flood plain. LikeLike so fast, so well done. LikeLike well done LikeLike Thank you, Taylor! LikeLike That IS short! But perfect. Cripes, I can’t even get under 600 words! Bravo! LikeLike Ha! Thank you very much. I admit, the temptation to get wordy is strong… LikeLike Love it…now send some rain across the pond. We are turning to dust in the states. :( LikeLike Thanks! And trust me, I’d give you my rain if I could! Wearing a coat and boots this time of year is ridiculous, and nothing’s growing, all the plants have drowned :( LikeLike Very nice. And as Red said, you can send some of that rain this way! LikeLike Oh I don’t know, it’s absolutely pouring down! I’ve been reading about the heatwaves on the news, it sounds awful :( It’s just as bad here though, in the opposite way. We need to go half-and-half ;) LikeLike Yes, halfsies!! :D LikeLike Sweet and very fitting too. LikeLike Thanks; I know the weather’s bad if I write about it! LikeLike Love from my day-off! Powerful slam — I wish I could identify words so clearly as the right words. Another of your skills. 8-) LikeLike Heh, thanks Judith!

LikeLike Thank you so much, Merio <3 LikeLike You are most welcome. LikeLike Clever! LikeLike Really? Aw, thank you! I’m afraid no thought went into it at all! LikeLike Short with attitude. Nice! LikeLike Cheers Stephanie <3 LikeLike A picture may paint a thousand wires, but your few words created a comple picture. :) LikeLike Thank you Hawkruh! LikeLike LOVE LikeLike :) Thank you! LikeLike Superb! Anna :o] LikeLike Thanks Anna! LikeLike That’s one thing I don’t miss, is the rain! LikeLike I usually quite like rain, but not like this! For some reason I love the damp misery of the North; it suits me ;) LikeLike What a dreadful summer you are having in UK. I feel really sorry about it especially in this special year of celebrations and the Olympics. Let’s hope the sun comes out soon :) LikeLike It really is awful; and the US is having such a tough time too. I really don’t know which is worse; the horrible heat, or the constant heavy rain. Both are destroying so much :( But thank you, and I do hope the sun comes out soon too! It’s been teasing for a while, but hasn’t stayed out long enough for my liking. LikeLike Hey sweetie, just to let you know iv tagged you in an olympic meme but you dont have to do it if dont want too though! Hope you are ok xxx http://thepickledprincess.wordpress.com/2012/07/19/the-olympic-meme/ LikeLike Thank you luv! I may jump on it next week ;) Although I loathe anything to do with the Olympics, so my answers may be a little caustic! Thank you so much for the tag, take care of you x LikeLike Send me love.
