Switzerland - shadows of echoes of memories of songs — LiveJournal
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.

Oh, heck. I hope and trust they are safe and at worst perhaps wet; and at best, as you say, just not out of bed yet.

No, you can't jinx these things. You were nowhere near Bulgaria.

And it is raining here, so you did bring the rain back to Britain. This is someone else's doing. ;-)

Bulgaria? *confused*

I did get a reply from my mum eventually; thanks for the reminder that I ought to let LJ know as well (see edit).

Mind you if I'm responsible for the levels of rain we're getting in Cambridge at the moment, then I should be hanging my head in shame IN A BIG SOGGY BUCKET. :-/

Maybe I'm misremembering - I thought the link mentioned huge rainstorms in Austria, Bulgaria, Moldova, and Uttermost Thule as well as Switzerland.

Glad they're all OK. Hate long-distance worries!!

We Need Rain. No soggy buckets required. Those of us with plants in dry fields are thanking you, or would be, if you were responsible.
