Still no rain

We have a 20% chance of heavy rain. Yet the rain radar map shows it bypassing us, so we shall see.

Nearly 7 weeks now and neither us, Ruby or the garden, know what to do with ourselves. It is forecast to be hotter and drier for the next 10 days at least.

Ruby has been on her raw food diet for one week. She leaps up and down in excitement when she sees me coming with her food. Poo has diminished greatly and it practically has no smell, oh joy of joys. On the fruit and vegetable side, she has had small amounts of carrot, broccoli, cucumber and courgette. Also one or two slices of strawberries, apple, pear, banana and some blueberries.

On the meat front she has eaten tripe, chicken and lamb. To come are beef, rabbit, turkey and venison. Fish will come next along with eggs and leafy vegetables. Hopefully she won’t have reactions to any of them.

She seems to have gone off her Whimsey chewing sticks so has now got dehydrated fish skin sticks to gnaw on, which help clean her teeth. They stink mind you so she has to have them outside. We shall find something else for the colder months that won’t smell the house out!

School holidays have just started here and already the roads are busy. Have a great weekend everyone.

    1. Same here. The bedroom night time temperature is always 24C no matter what the outside temperature, weird!

  2. Rain in the Manchester area today, and we have had some at home this week, but we need a lot more. Our hosepipe ban starts on 5th August.
