    I think we're not getting it so much here in the east, but I look forward to seeing footage of Northerners sweeping shit water out of their homes.

    Looks like Wales may bear the brunt of it. Looks like we may squeeze through in that less severe patch between Wales and Dartmoor.

    Good Morning. I do wish these storms would go away. It’s winter, it should be a snow storm or nothing.

    It's absolutely pissing down, innit? At least it's made my decision for me as to whether to go out this afternoon - no.

    I hear you. I have plans for today and tomorrow, but today’s has been sacked off on the grounds that I am NOT going out in that, and tomorrow’s can wait and see what the day will bring.

    Are these really storms? Didn’t we just used to call this winter weather?

    Naming it is another AMERICAN IMPORT, isn't it? I think we only started doing it a few years ago. Before that it was just weather.

    Yeah, the naming thing is all that's new. That seems to have taken weather described as "stormy" to being An Actual Storm in people's minds.

    Why do we need to humanise weather? I think random nouns would be more fun.

    Makes it easy to blame.

    But I agree - Storm Guava, Storm Condiment, Storm Phosphorous, Storm Ombudsman...

    I've been to three shops this morning. Tesco, Asda and the tobacconist. Each time I got out of the car the heavens opened and I entered each establishment looking like a drowned rat.

    The rain is horrible. I was hoping to go home from Glasgow tonight but I just don’t know if I can face it.

    Would you travel to Thailand right now? We've got family due to go in a fortnight but are now debating whether to go or not.

    At the tobacconist yes but Asda and Tesco were mostly dog-related purchases and Mr F's low-fat/fat-free staples for the week. In the tobacconist I purchased something that James (the proprietor) had hidden under the counter for me. Nothing as exciting as illegal drugs or owt, it was a menthol flavour-card that you put in loose tobacco to make it menthol flavour and they're a nightmare to get hold of at the moment because flavoured tobacco will be banned from May so everybody's stocking up on the cards now. He saved me the last one out of the box because he knew I'd be in this weekend. It felt as naughty as when the butcher in the village used to sell me chops with kidney on when offal was banned (during the mad-cow crisis). :D

    Apparently there are 50 mph winds and its raining heavily. A look out the window suggests otherwise. I think Dennis is a fraud.

    I just looked out of my window, it's bucketing down and somebody's wheelie bin just skidded down the middle of the street on its side. I'll send Dennis up your way next.

    It was kind of rhetorical. Life is for living babe, whatever makes you happy.

    Cheers, chuck. Hopefully the pennines take the brunt though and it's just a trickle when it gets here.

    We don’t really have much wind but the rain is of biblical proportions. I was meant to be out with the girls this afternoon, but BUGGER THAT.

    It lives on! I was getting a photo in someone’s front garden but it was very cool to see it. :disco:

    I can also confirm that there were no other tourists there :D

    I'm so not used to having nothing to do and nowhere that I have to be shortly. I even rang the nursing home to see whether they'd changed their mind about not visiting for several days to help my dad get used to their routine, they hadn't. I've washed the pots (things that can't go in the dishwasher), emptied the recycling and nearly got blown arse over tit down the side path and am now going to hoover the bitchcave even though it doesn't really need it. I'm considering hitting that bottle of Advocaat with some lemonade, getting drunk and having dirty freezer food for tea.

    So here’s a question for you:

    I was supposed to be going (with the giant) to Montenegro in April for a friends wedding. Me and the giant were sharing with a few of my other friends and we split things 5 ways.

    Obviously when things went tits up, he was no longer coming. But as things are back on track, I wanted to invite him again. Now, I know, he was never going to get an invite back to the wedding but since we are away for 4 days I thought he could just do his own thing on that day.

    I mentioned to my friends yesterday who went ballistic. And have basically said ‘I am very very sad’ for doing this and why would I want to ruin my friends wedding.

    I guess I can see there point (Not about ruining the wedding though?) but they are are refusing to build bridges by not meeting him, and they have never once said to me about splitting the villa 4 ways instead of 5, knowing I will be out of pocket.

    Am I being completely selfish? I asked them first, it’s not like I’ve put my foot down, which I’d have every right to do since I’ve paid for the extra person.

    thoughts?

    Basically, am I being a dick?
