I am definitely affected by the weather. Today for instance it has rained all day, almost nonstop. It drives me nuts. And d'you know what, it is getting worse. The weather I mean, and my attitude to it. It is so bloody difficult to keep this place nice when everything is wet. Wet clothes, wet boots, wet dog, wet cat, Arghh!
Bonnie is getting me down. In and out she goes, and every time she comes in she jumps straight up on the table, and leaves little wet pawprints over every thing in sight. Sadie the German Shepherd comes in, soaking wet and even though I quickly wrap her in a towel and dry her off, once I let her go she shakes herself from head to toe, spraying droplets all over the place. And if I'm not careful she will climb onto my favourite chair and soak that too.
I can't get on with anything when it's raining either, and goodness knows I'm not short of things to do. But I get despondent, and just mope around, feeling sorry for myself. What a pathetic wretch I am sometimes.
It could be I suppose that because I spend most of my life outdoors, I am more affected when I cannot get out. It might sound odd, but in this wagon, when both the doors are open, even when I'm in, I'm out. That's what they call living close to nature. Most of the time I love it. I can deal with most types of weather, but not the rain. Not when it keeps on and on and on and flipping well on..
Bonnie has just come in, she has jumped straight onto the table. I am going to take some photos of her and her pawprints. Excuse me a moment, I'll be right back.
Can you see what I mean. If I left any of my writing or artwork uncovered, she would destroy it. She sometimes does too. I just told her off. She doesn't have a clue what she has done to upset me. In fact she pays no attention. The only one who feels bad is me, for shouting at her. Sorry Bonnie.
I wouldn't want to be without these two housemates though, even though they drive me crazy. I suppose we will just have to get along with each other, despite the rain.
It is changing you know. The climate. We definitely get more rain than we ever used too. I might buy myself a campervan and take off to sunnier climes in the winter. I could do that, I am a retired man.
Guess what the weather forecast is for tomorrow? Yep, more rain. Not that they always get it right. In fact they get it wrong most of the time. It will probably be dry and sunny tomorrow.
You see, you must stay positive. I always do!
