After half a day of work we went out to test my tyre repair job by riding to the French cafe for afternoon tea. The weather was unstable but holding and apart from a few drops while sitting at the cafe we got there and back in the dry.

I’ve been avoiding using the car this weekend as I’ve had rats sheltering in the engine over the last week and my power steering was not working. Although I could still drive, I was cautious about what other damage they may have done, so it’s booked in first thing tomorrow for a check and repair.

I suppose rats are also trying to get away from the flood waters as do other animals, yet somehow I have more sympathy with the native animals displaced in recent weeks as with the rats or mice trying to move into the walls and ceilings of my home… Let’s hope the python is hungry when it comes out again.
