Just act sensibly. I can use the hose to wash the van in the morning, yippee! Seriously, though- the car does not need washing; and I have 800 litres of rainwater stored in my scheme behind the garage, for the Memsahib to water the flowers with.
I recommend that everyone should get a water butt-or 2- to catch rainwater.It's surprising how quickly they fill.

Relief as Britons allowed to water their swamps
THOUSANDS of relieved gardeners are finally able to water the swamp-like areas attached to their houses, as the hosepipe ban is lifted.
Many homeowners had been concerned that, unless the ban was lifted soon, they would be unable to keep their lawns submerged to the depth required to support larger marine life like catfish and snapping turtles.
Accountant and keen gardener Nathan Muir said: ??With only 38 inches of rainfall since January, the mangrove region of our garden, which I navigate with a type of one-man hovercraft, was beginning to dry out very slightly and the alligators which arrived in February were getting a little bit irritable.
??If only the ban had been lifted a little earlier I might still have a pet dog and a left arm below the elbow, but better late than never.?
Julian Cook, a retired doctor living in Devon, said: ??If I fill the garage with water then open the door, I can ride the wave on my canoe past the first few rafts of feral starving children and my wife can pick off the rest with a high-pressure hose.
??That might give me a chance of reaching the ruins of the supermarket, where I can skin-dive for precious cans of food.?
The lifting of the ban has triggered a kind of watering mania among some homeowners, who are hosing with wild abandon their gardens, cars, carpets, laptops, and priceless stamp collections.
Housewife Carolyn Ryan of Durham said: ??The ground floor of my house is already four feet under water thanks to torrential rain, but it was missing something.
??Now I can wade out to get the hose, hook it up to the bathroom tap and create a beautiful cascading water feature down the stairs.?
