Well Oonagh let me down, I was counting on her for a very special birthday present, but it never arrived. She obviously knew what we were in store for this evening. I did get some very nice presents from other people; thank you if you are reading this.

It went very black just before six and the heavens opened, we had thunder and torrential rain, so much in such a short space of time that our drive resembled a river, the stones were under water and you could she it rushing over the gravel.

I had left the feed bucket on the fence (empty) and we had easily had an inch of rain in less that 15 minutes. I've never seen anything like it. Most of the courtyard was under water and we had a waterfall running down the steps from the lawn.

Thankfully we got the little girls field cleaned, cut and harrowed this morning and the boys field cleaned. The forecast for the rest of the week is not good.

Faith got to have her first go on the quad today, she rode with Paul and I and loved it. She even beat her mummy who hasn't had a go on it yet. Sorry Sarah we must rectify this next time you're up and it's not raining!
