typical, I'm going camping and all the forecasts seem to say it will be. Going to Pembrokeshire and really can't face the prospect of a week of rain. Not after last years monsoon. I'm seriously thinking of trying for a last minute holiday to Spain.

I think it is sad going on holiday to northumberland next week. Not camping but have done one holiday where it rained every day and was a little trying. Were staying near the beach - I want to go on it!

It's so annoying when the sun is blazing this week.

Christ is it? All over the country?

LawrieMarlow Wed 03-Aug-11 13:17:47

I agree. Plus children are away seeing their grandparents and I feel I'm missing out on nice weather with rhem if that makes any sense.

VivaLeBeaver Wed 03-Aug-11 13:20:05

I think Friday is officially the last day of summer.

Lawrie, Ive had a rainy week in Northumberland, never did get to go on any of the nice beaches.

Please God. This heat is killing me. Am pg and it's making me feel sick and headachey. I can't do anything.

Typical. I can foresee a rainy week in a caravan in Dorset! Am sweltering at the moment.

LawrieMarlow Wed 03-Aug-11 13:25:34

I will go on the beach even if it pisses down every day <determined>

we had 2 weeks of torrential rain, in our caravan in dorset, last august. came home after a week, because it was so awful. This year only booked for a week, becasue of that. we are going in 2 weeks time, for a week. And you say it will probably be awful? oh god. I can't stand it.
I am so fed up with british weather.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 03-Aug-11 13:33:31

it doesnt look that bad to me once you hit mid week with an improving picture from wednesday onwards. Fear not!

VivaLeBeaver Wed 03-Aug-11 13:33:43

Oblomov, it will probably be fine in two weeks time. That's because I will be back at work in two weeks time. I always pick the wrong week. It's lovely before and after I'm away and shit the week I go camping. Every fucking year apart from two in the past ten years.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 03-Aug-11 13:34:43

although next weekend looks grim atm which means make the most of thursday and friday next week!

VivaLeBeaver Wed 03-Aug-11 13:35:14

Oybk, thanks for a bit of reassurance. We,re going sat to sat so maybe we might have three ok days. Will have to go and research rainy day activities in Tenby.

LawrieMarlow Wed 03-Aug-11 13:36:07

Can't you make it nice from about Tuesday please?

VivaLeBeaver Wed 03-Aug-11 13:36:37

Or Monday?

GypsyMoth Wed 03-Aug-11 13:37:34

So too cloudy for the perseids?? The moon kind of scuppers it this year as well

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 03-Aug-11 13:42:33

I'll try Lawrie grin you never know, Tuesday is an age away meterologically.
ILT - isnt it always the way! I hope it changes by next weekend!

LawrieMarlow Wed 03-Aug-11 13:47:20

Thank you smile And by nice I mean not constant rain grin

AngryFeet Wed 03-Aug-11 13:50:17

Is that the weekend of 13th/14th August OYBBK? Crap, I have a garden party for 40 people on the Sat sad

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 03-Aug-11 13:56:21

it is, but dont lose hope because it may well not come to that, if high pressure builds on thursday, then perhaps it will keep the low pressure at bay (hopeful, despite what the models say)

AngryFeet Wed 03-Aug-11 14:24:45

I am happy for it to piss down all next week but it must stop by Friday or I will kick off in spectacular fashion!

VivaLeBeaver Sun 07-Aug-11 17:26:37

Well I'm here, on holiday, camping. It's pissing it down, same as yesterday. Today there has been thunder and lightening to go with the very heavy rain. For some reason met check won't open on my iPad but theweatheroutlook is saying better tomorrow and tues. Though the forecast on my phone says rain for next five days..........

It's going to be a usual seaside holiday of never going on the beach I fear......dd cried today.

piratecat Sun 07-Aug-11 17:35:07

viva, according to the Met office it will be dry for you mon, tues, wednesday.

tuesday looks like the best day, with lots of sunshine, so most likely a great beach day for you.

i hope its fine for you.x
