I know everyone is banging on about the shithouse weather... constant, non-stop drizzle interspersed with major downpours and fluctuating temps. The hottest January night in 15 years, followed 4 days later by trackpants + wool jumpers.
Not only is it a pain in the ass and an extremely disappointing summer, for our family it means we are scraping by financially. No film/TV work means housepainting for Al but houses can't be painted in this weather. Poor weather really is poor weather. Getting the boys back into their school groove means my ability to work is restricted (that plus a healthy case of CBF)... Two freelancers in one family makes for a financial roller-coaster. It's nauseating.... and boring.
At least someone can find the fun in all the wet.
