Hello again!

It seems like weeks since the sun shone down on us, it has been a wet July when normally South west France is bathed in sunshine, ok we normally have the occasional thunderstorm this time of year which cools us down and washes the dust from the streets but days and days of rain is just not normal. We finally got out to look at our tomatoes and found more than half rotting away, we have managed to save some for chutney if they don’t ripen.

I blame the bad weather on installing my solar hot water system, I wanted to get it working before the hot weather was over and was concerned I was going to be on the roof in 40 deg temperatures, in the end we had to dodge the showers but managed it in the end.  It has worked fantastically giving us loads of lovely free hot water even on the dullest rainy day.
