It's raining, it's pouring and nothing further to add

Okay so this winter has not been cold but it has been something else.

It's been wet.

And when I say wet that is quite possibly a massive understatement. The pond is over flowing, the garden path is rapidly disappearing under murder and we're starting to get great puddles of water forming at points on the path down the side of the house.

It just doesn't seem to stop raining.

Now our standard refrain is that at least it's not snowing otherwise we would be royally ...... in trouble.

But at least if it was snowing things would look pretty, they would look nice and I could take pretty pictures.

With the rain and the mud it's just bleugh.

Which might sound somewhat disappointing and blunt but there really is no other word to describe the weather right now.

Also I discovered my shoes leak.

a lot.

When they say it never rains but it pours, they really weren't kidding

I really should know better

Well 2014 has gotten off to a great start.

And for once I mean that in a totally serious non sarcastic way.

Yes it's rained, and rained oh and rained just a little bit more, but the downsides have been more then countered by the plus points which in no particular order include studio photography, a steampunk theme shoot and another mid singles events where I actually danced.

I'll say that again a mid singles event where I actually danced.

A lot.

And know you're not dreaming that did actually happen.

But you know what they say about pride coming before a fall...

You see, I'm part of a mid singles group on facebook and a thread was started by a member from the USA about how he felt abandoned when he moved into SA and no longer supported as he couldn't meet girls in his age group, etc etc.

So knowing this story myself all too well, I tried to give advice which mainly boiled down to, don't stay inside get outside!

Now, I should have known better then this because your not going to get reasonable measured discussions in the internet will you?

Yes it basically ended up with me being accused of being a hypocrite and being in danger of falling off my high horse while I cackled aloud whilst sitting in my ivory tower as I went to all the mid singles activities.

The person doing the accusing was a married woman mind you so what she was doing in a mid singles group I have no idea and quite how I can go to activities whilst staying in my ivory tower whilst sitting on a high horse I have no idea.

But I decided to take the universes hint and get back inside my box.

in my life I know enough crazy people without going onto the internet to find more.

Later folks!
