Last night rain drummed on the roof as a storm broke, cooling the clammy air. This morning lovely noisy torrential rain streamed down the windows as thunder crashed. If you listen you can hear the claps. Eventually the sun came out and the rain dried up.
Tonight 'A' who is not exactly the handy man but will have a go at anything, decided that there was a problem with the water pressure and that he needed to do a spot of home plumbing. At first I thought another cloud had burst until I realised that it wasn't raining and the sound was actually inside the house. A mini Niagara was running down the kitchen wall...There was a lot of running for towels to cover anything that might get damged and holding them up to try and quell the waterfall.
We're waiting now for the real plumber to arrive.
Meanwhile comfort food like this roasted butternut squash with goats cheese with it's crumby garlicky topping is perfect for times like this. You can find the recipe here.
