I'm sorry you've been through so much! I hope you are able to enjoy the "summer" in England.
My husband and I saw a musician from Manchester, England last night, named Clive Gregson-are you familiar with his music? He played at a local school. He was in the band Any Trouble, the duo Gregson and Collister (Christine Collister) and also toured with Richard Thompson. I don't know your age, so this music may be before your time
All through his set he talked about the British weather. It was pouring rain here in New Jersey, but he said that was nothing compared to Manchester weather.
