    I hope all of you enjoying the HOT DRY SUNNY weather in Egypt won't keep on about it, while we back in the UK are cold, wet and soggy with snow coming everywhere (so they say). I've now put a photo of the Red Sea next to my computer just to remind me of blue sky, sunshine and the sun twinkling on a blue blue sea. I'm off to practice my Mary Poppins act with my brolly and hopefully the wind will blow me south to Egypt.

    What good weather in Hurghada?? I'm just back today and spent the last week with my fleece on!! The sun was always shinning but the wind would cut you in two. Tried one day to lay on the beach but it kind of defeats the point when you are covered in goose bumbs!!

    Be warned, if you are going out soon, make sure you have a few fleeces for during the day and long trousers for night.

    Yes, i am back today too. It rained last saturday first time in 8yrs and we actually saw a rainbow.Wind all week and a sandstorm on wednesday. Pretty chilly, so take those fleeces and cardies. It was nice yesterday though as the wind died down and people actually on the beach sunbathing without coats on.. So wont be visiting in January, i will stick to hotter months.

    The definition of rain in Egypt seems to be a grey area . We certainly had rain in El Gouna last year combined with storng winds which caked everything in sand .This thankfully brushed off easily the next day . Some Egyptians only count rain if the streets are awash . I would say that there are signs of rain each year but most of them if you blink you will miss them .

    I've been watching Sky News and it looks as though the UK is in for some haevy storms. Hope everyone's OK. I'm very sorry to tell you that the weather here is gorgeous - very warm and sunny. Maybe it helps to know that I would prefer the storm!

    Hi Isab - very nice of you to let us know how warm it is LOL.

    Yes we are at the moment getting a right battering. Really strong winds up to 80mph and heavy rain. It is that bad that I came down stairs this morning and there is all dirty water on my kitchen floor that has come through the back door I think.

    Hi Lyndsay - defo going for 2 weeks on 7th Octobaer as flights booked. Hoping to go soon though if they say that I can collect my keys at the end of the month. So I may be able to get out towards the end of April and fly over to Hurgh and meet up with some of you. Watch this space.

    My hubby has abandoned me for a comfy liveaboard this week and keeps sending me text saying how warm and DRY it is. Just got in from sorting my horses in 60mph winds and driving rain and I'm wishing I had said that I was going instead of him. Stay safe if you're battling this storm.

    For once northern ireland is ok. I'm sitting in the kitchen, with the sun beating on my back. Still freezing outside, i'll just have to sit here all day instead!!

    Heard today that my kitchen is coming next week, so now I do have an excuse to go to Hurghada. Great to hear that the weather improved as last month is it was chilly.

    Hi Chris - how unfair - its normally the other way round - I go and leave hubby here LOL.

    Hi Babette - how exciting is that. Please do post pics of your new kitchen. Bet you cant wait. This is the time when everything starts coming together and it starts to look more like a home than a shell.
    Inlaws flew out to Sharm yesterday and it is hot hot hot. I dont think they anticipated it to be in 90's. Ma in law is Irish and she always ends up red.

    Hubby just called - he was on M25 this morning and huge pools of water. Not long after he passed it there was a 10 car pile up : (.

    He sent all the workers home except my son and he says now the sun has come out but dont think it will be for much longer as someone has just turned the lights out here.

    I think my kitchen is gonna get wet again. Think I have a leak in the seal in the back door. Just praying its not coming up from under the ceramic floor tiles as dont like the prospect of ripping them all up to try and find a pipe leak.

    Keep safe all. I need to go up the town to bank but still sitting here in PJ's LOL.

    Storm part 2 has just arrived here! I've just been to check the horses haven't been blown away, left in bright sunshine and within 10 minutes the horizontal rain returned. My garage now looks like a muddy puddle with 2 soaking coats dripping nicely.
    Really looking forward to the easter hols and we can go visit Sahl and soak up some sun.
  17. Ohh hthis is unfair i hope we can send you some sun in bottels LOL ;)
