I'm not that far from you, and I don't think it rained here.It actually rained for a couple of hours 3 days ago, but I get your meaning.
What an opportunity, and utterly wasted. Should have simply handed over the dishcloth/scourer thingy and said: "You'd best do it then, my little Mullengar heifer. I'd hate the wee reservoir to run dry."I remember I was doing the washing up and letting the tap run as I rinsed up and my then girlfriend said I was wasting water. It was Northern Ireland in January, it hadn't stopped pishing down for the past four months, if I was wasting water I was doing the fecking miserable, sodden, grey shitehole a favour.
