Hosepipe Ban Lifted

I've interrrupted the house porn posts to let you know that United Utilities have lifted the hosepipe ban on the North West of England. An advert in our local newspaper this week told us the good news with the following explanation:

"Significant rainfall from mid July to mid August has allowed us to announce an end to the ban."

That significant rainfall was my Summer Holiday!

We have a "watering your garden" ban from late Autumn to early Spring here!!! But no watering ban in the heat of Summer when the average temp is 36/38c and can easily get up to 44/45c.

I'll never understand United Utilities!

Well that might mean we have a chance of some sunshine.... Its rained so much here that we've not needed to water our new grass - which I guess is a good thing (although far from ideal for our summer holiday)
