On Sunday night addedentry and I got back from a week's holiday in Switzerland. My parents, my sister and her boyfriend are all still over there, staying in a small mountain village in the Val de Bagnes area. When we left, we expressed a light-hearted hope that we'd manage to take the rain back with us to Britain, leaving them with some better weather for the remaining week of their holiday. It's a good job I don't believe you can jinx these things.
Update: All safe and well, with no more inconvenience than having had to cancel a couple of proposed day-trip plans due to road closures. Phew.
