    HH, when my friends children were young she picked both her son and his cousin up from nursery. Left them to play while she organised a snack, went to fetch them and notice bits of hair in bin...her son's! His cousin had decided to give him a haircut. Not too bad you may think until she discovered her son had decided to do the same to his cousin only his cousin was a girl with pigtails and he had cut one off...how do you explain that to your sister in law when she comes to collect her child!!
    And bramble talking about people who should know better, my niece, 16, was at a party, jumped off a balcony onto a trampoline and her knees came up and knocked her out! An overnight stay in hospital was required! I have only one question...WHY?!!

    Anyhoo, hope you all have a lovely day...Nicos, enjoy the shopping and NS, enjoy sorting out those shoes!
    Why indeed Jay, at least your niece is only 16 with years to get some sense. My daughter is 47 and is never going to get sense.
    In fairness she got aright scare and I think she well think twice the next time.
    Thank they are both ok.
    Her only regret is she never got the chance to take part in The Wuthering Heights event in thr park on Saturday afternoon.

    Jay evidently you will be there before me so if you want just leave the price of a cuppa behind the counter, or if you don't want to do that post it to me
    As for the the trampoline, it was there and the knockout, she didn't land right
    I usually say "man is under no obligation to mature as he grows older" but it can be applied to women also, it seems that with women they mature when the get married, for once they are married its,"behave remember you are married" being deaf has advantages, as you stop hearing these comments

    I've just had a look at the weather forecast. I won't complain because it's going to get worse next week: hotter in the daytime and at night.

    Otherwise, all good so far. Mr Snoop helped with the watering, I walked the dogs, Mr Snoop has kept me supplied with teas and coffees, I found a packet of biscuits.

    Have a jolly day, everyone
    Spain is a big country: where I live, we get frosts, floods and snow, as well as raging heat.

    Forgive my "Ignorance" Coz I ain't caught up!

    A mad last hour or two!

    But at last seems things are calming down allowing a little gardening time!

    Meeting in the morning with "Big Wig's at Sheffield, but only an half day job!

    Bathed, shaved, clothes pressed n shoes polished!

    Bid all a good nights sleep!

    Had a lovely day out with my grandaughter.
    Chips, icecream and a nice cold drink.
    Home now and she is back with her mam.
    Have to do something similar tomorrow as her mam and dad are both working.
    Looking for inspiration as they have all grown out of the playground.

    Evening all! It was a nice day today so I spent the morning demolishing the rockery I built yesterday and then re-molishing an upgraded version incorporating all the rocks I left out the first time. Thanks Rary. I'm quite pleased with it now.
