    The marsh isn'tt so full at the moment, but high tide at 11:38 will be the crunch.

    As well as the water in next door's and next door but 1's gardens, the pig sties in my garden have water in them too, about an inch or so deep.

    The garage, being about 18 inches higher, is dry apart from all the water that's come in through the roof/walls(breeze blocks).

    The canal is overtopping its banks, fortunately on the side facing the river & not us, which I've not seen very often.

    Hopefully it won't cut through enough to burst its banks.

    The river water is making an inneresting noise as it travels towards the sea.

    You'd have no chance if you fell in.

    The rain came back and still persists, though the wind has dropped a bit

    Hello peeps

    Brunch was very nice - HWMBO, me, and a couple of friends at The Rooftop at The Trafalgar St James hotel. Nice food, a magnum of Veuve Cliquot Rosé, washed down with a bottle of normal Veuve Cliquot. Not bad for four people.

    One of the presents my friend bought me was a Gin based quiz game so we had a good laugh playing that after we'd finished eating. Not sure the other tables enjoyed it as much as we did

    We then went to Duck and Waffle Local for pudding and coffee.

    Whiled away a good 90 mins there at which point it was time for HWMBO and I to go to Iberica Victoria for our dinner. The guest chef was Nacho Manzano a two Michelin starred chef doing a one day pop up at Iberica yesterday.

    It seems he's back to do a week long stint later in the month too, slightly extended menu to the one we had:
    Nacho Manzano brings exclusive Spanish flavours to London | Global Blue

    The 10 courses plus snacks and wine pairings were all very delicious although I definitely struggled to eat any more than a couple of mouthfuls of the last three.

    Still feeling full up! I don't think I need to eat again for a few days.

    Not much of a crunch.

    Much less water there now, though the monsoon has returned unbidden.

    Managed to overcook the rice pud to extinction. but it recovered with a little boiling water.

    The lamb it has aroasted and will be sampled shortly.

    The long tailed tits have been enjoying the fatballs this morning.

    BBC News just pinged my phone with the news that a “major incident” has been declared in South Wales

    And I’ve just heard that my parents lost one of their trees overnight - a sliver birch. It didn’t damage anything of note or fall on the neighbours or anything like that, though.

    Lunch: roast leg of lamb, overcooked rice pud. 1.05 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    All nice enough.

    Still can't get a proper handle on the rice pud.

    I've been surprised by the lack of trees falling over in the recent storms.

    It's been pissing down again for a while.

    There's all sorts of detritus floating down the river at remarkable rates of knots.

    The ducks seem to be enjoying the water on the marsh.
