This month is set to become the UK’s wettest May on record apparently…and there’s more rain to come!
It’s been like Autumn out there rather than the hopeful start of summer that this month should be, with the clouds starting to part, the sun increasing in warmth and the mood of the nation starting to lift.
We were lucky last year, it was glorious and blimey did we need it as we grappled with our first lockdown and the initial effects of the pandemic.
This year has been entirely different, the clouds are grey and low, it’s been raining heavily most days and the sun…well, I’m sure it’s there somewhere!
I know it is, because on the odd occasion the clouds have parted, the sun has peeked through, tempting us with its warmth and what could be!
The flowers have still poked their heads out and braved the storms and battering they’ve received this month.
A bit like us.
Lockdown is slowly receding and we are emerging back into the world and I’m feeling beaten and bruised. A feeling of uncertainty for what might still be around the corner lingers. Will we fully reopen on the 21 June, what about this variant, how well will the vaccines work at keeping us all safe as we start mixing again? It’s looking positive but only time will tell.
I keep checking the weather forecast and hoping for better news. We still have some bad weather to contend with, but it is looking very hopeful that it will improve shortly.
As with all storms, they blow over in the end.
