Good morning

Still very warm and high cloud this morning.

We went for a walk late last night on the Downs came back in the dark. The most beautiful evening. Get very few of those still warm evenings with a glorious sunset.

Mums today as well as planning and shopping for a birthday party on Sunday DDs birthday. Think i will do cold buffet type food.

Smoked mackeral quiche and salad for supper

Have a good day

Good morning, Michael and all GNs. Neither one thing nor the other in South Yorkshire this morning, but rain later I think. Good fishing at Ladybower yesterday. Three very good, hard fighting fish, all returned to fight another day, spectacular scenery and a cuckoo calling in the woods. The drive back through the Hope Valley in beautiful evening light rounded it all off nicely. Food shopping and domestics today. Boo hoo! Have a good one folks.

Morning everyone!

More cloud here on the south coast this morning so who knows what is in store. It was another humid night so I would be pleased if it is a bit fresher.

WI committee this morning with lunch afterwards at the lovely pub where we have our committee meetings.

Happy days all! sunshine

Good morning from Malta where it is overcast at present. It is supposed to clear later but I have just put a load of laundry in the machine so won't be at all surprised if it rains just as I am ready to hang it out grin

Hope you all have a good day.sunshine

Good morning from sunny and already hot Colchester. Getting washing done and out early as storm is due this afternoon.
New mattress being delivered today but bed is not coming until Sunday....
Shopping later for family BBQ tomorrow. Today's storm is supposed to cool things down here, just hope it's dry tomorrow.

Morning everyone,
Cloudy and sunny in South Yorks at the moment and feeling Warm. Hope the predicted rain holds off until I get my sheets dry.
Just watching a female blackbird with a beak full of goodies searching for more in the garden. The nest is in our hedge. She and her partner are being kept extremely busy, and as the days go by, their beaks become fuller with bigger bugs to feed their brood.
Hope I get to see the babies when they fledge. 😊

Good morning and thanks downsized for reminding me that I meant to put the washer on when I got up! I forgot of course 😁
As it's a bit damp this morning it doesn't really matter.
Nothing much to do today but I shall be popping round with some flowers, to see a close friend. Her dog just lay down and died yesterday afternoon and she is of course, deeply upset.

My DH who is 75 years old has recently bought a bike. Well it has a small motor to help him up steep slopes (!) but he has to keep pedalling to keep the bike going. He has terrible back pain going back many years and has been told that gentle cycling will be beneficial. So far there has been a lot of tinkering with gears, adjustments to the seat, purchasing of accessories and so on, but very little actual riding. Does any one else have similar experiences of a DH with cycle mania ?
