  once upon a time... my favourite bench
by call_me_rhia

officially floods happen every 10 years here - but well, something's going sadly wrong. Over the last 10 years span we've had 3 floods - but they call it a coincidence... go figure! Anyway, should you be heading this way during a long rainy spell, keep in mind that we can - and do - flood regularily. it's no big tragedy, we're used to it, and even like it - it kinda breaks the monotony. But do bring rubber wellies to navigate the town. Don't worry, you won't look silly!
