Morning Mick, morning all.

That sounds promising.

It's hit and sticky in North Leicestershire but heavy rain is forecast for 9 am. That will be very welcome!

I need to buy some new white t shirts today. I wonder how the ones I wore happily last summer look so jaded at the start of this summer. confused

Morning Mick, Kitty and All

Wall to wall sun here again! Wonderful!

A bit of ironing to do before it gets too hot and then load up the last of the plants to be planted out around the town. I do enjoy it and we get lots of people stop to say how much it's appreciated, but I do wish a few more would offer to help!

Good morning Michael and all GNs. Glad BT are getting on top of your problem, Mick - it seems to have taken them long enough! It is warm already in South Yorkshire, but we may get some rain today. Yesterday we were trawling round bathroom showrooms. Today it is tiles. What started out as a project to do a simple replacement of our bathroom suite for something white and more modern is taking on epic and costly proportions. How do these things get out of hand without you noticing? Have a good day, folks.

A heavy thunderstorm in the night woke me up but it seems to be brightening up now, here on the south coast. I planted some free geranium cuttings that I got at a coffee gathering yesterday, so the rain will have helped them bed into their new pot. Enjoy the weekend everyone! sunshine

Morning all.
Bright and sunny in Kent but cooler. Rain is forecast for tomorrow and Monday.
What do we expect on a Bank Holiday weekend.
H will be watching the cup final later and cheering on the reds. I will have to find something to do

Morning All. Very loud thunder in the night in our corner of Somerset. Sun and cloud mix now. Don't let BT of the hook, mick, keep at them. Hope Saturday is kind to everyone.

Good morning from sunny Colchester. Still cloud free here. Going to be another hot day.
Off to a BBQ to celebrate DGS3's 1st birthday.

Good morning all

Good morning, still mild and dry in the north east.
Sat in the garden until 7.30 last night, I don't think the weather will hold until this evening.

Tippy22 Sat 27-May-17 08:45:17

Terrific thunderstorm going on at the moment here in East Sussex. I quite like thunderstorms. Have a good day everyone.

rosesarered Sat 27-May-17 08:57:41

Good morning all, woke up at six to find light rain, hurrah! Cool things down and good for the garden.Blue skies and sun now though, having a barbecue for all the family today at lunchtime, hope it won't be too hot.
Have a good Bank Holiday everybody ( that means stay home and potter about, keep off the crowded roads.)😎🍷🍰

Dinner at DSs this evening

Enjoy your day everyone!!

Tippy22 Sat 27-May-17 09:31:31

It didn't last very long but quite loud and now we have beautiful sunshine.

whitewave Sat 27-May-17 09:34:56

Yes same here - we could hear it in the distance though. Did you see the smoke from Lewes a couple of nights ago? It was really weird - enormous - what looked like strange black clouds just hanging and making strange shapes. We didn't know what it was but decided it must be smoke, but it was peculiar.

ninathenana Sat 27-May-17 09:42:39

Thunder and lightning started as soon as I'd put the washing out.

Tippy22 Sat 27-May-17 09:51:39

It was on the local news Whitewave something to do with a fire in a recycling plant as far as I remember .

whitewave Sat 27-May-17 09:58:53

The smoke stretched for 22 miles all along the coast. We could see it from our part of the Downs.

Jalima1108 Sat 27-May-17 10:01:36

We had a thunderstorm in the night and I did hear a couple of very loud claps of thunder - even though DH said I was snoring gently throughout!!
It's cloudy here today and looks like rain - a typical BH weekend.

Morning everyone. Beautiful morning here in Cheshire. Also it is my 75th. Birthday.....I can't believe that I am 75 years old. Hubby said I am three quarters of a century now. Just guaranteed to make a girl feel great. Anyway, i FEEL about half that age. (Don't look it though!). Hope you all have a great day.

Happy birthday, Grannysue, I hope you are being thoroughly spoilt on your special day. flowers

Weather here in Malta is HOT. I've just been shoving rearranging my garden furniture for the umpteenth time. I only have a smallish yard since I downsized, but I think it looks quite nice now. Too hot to sit out though, so I've retreated indoors.grin

Happy days everyone.sunshine
