    We are getting proper rain here too!!!! So happy. It can only do good for the potatoes, onions, sweetcorn, brassicas etc.
    I replanted more peas this afternoon as ALL the last ones just disappeared off the face of the earth. Occasionally I can just get so depressed when nature decides to get the better of me.

    Mornin n’alln’all

    Its rained almost nonstop since yesterday….sorry, first I pinch the sun and now the rain

    OH had his jab yesterday and I can’t believe how little his reaction has been after last time! Sore arm and the odd hot flush.
    Going to have a quiet day all the same.

    More indoor sorting I think and planning of the patio. Looks like finding the wood is going to be fun

    Right, clearly time for a brew - I have some half melted choccie biscuits if anyone fancies a sticky time of it?

    Morning

    Snoop we've not had a frog in the kitchen be we do often find slug trails even trod on one when I came down at 2am not a nice feeling in your bare feet.

    Rain due this afternoon hopefully it will be enough to top up my butts, they're rather low.

    Enjoy your day.

    No rain yesterday.......again.
    Managed to get my wheelchair ramp concreted. Hope its strong enough today to wheelbarrow the rest of the 20mm gravel over it to fill in low areas next to the decking?
    Must get to the allotment today and as its Friday.....fish and chip day! The chip shop is close bye,which is handy!

    There wasn't as much rain yesterday morning as I'd hoped for. The allotment is still bone dry. My husband went back to the plastic surgery clinic yesterday with his arm. They are happy with him. He is now signed off. He is down to steristrips and stockingette over his stitches which I have to make sure he keeps on for another week and then take off for him. He can now get a shower without me having to wrap him in clingfilm.
    It looks quite grey here at the moment with rain forecast for this afternoon. I've got to go for blood tests this shortly so after that I 'm hopefully off to the allotment before the rain. I've got more sweet peas and peas to plant.

    Morning all.

    Everywhere's sodden this morning. Dew as much as yesterday's rain. Lots of snails and slugs out and about. I should say 'were' out and about. Also, a frog in the dog water bowl in the kitchen. Not the same one as a couple of weeks back in my seedling watering tray. Probably followed the trail of slugs and millipedes into the kitchen...

    No rain forecast this morning, but more due tomorrow. Got some urgent deadlines to hit today but should be free for a bit of gardening later. With any luck, ground might have dried up a bit by then.

    Hope your OH copes with second jab OK, Nicos. Ours next week, apparently.

    Have a good one, everyone. Smiles over by the kettle for them as want them.

    Fingers crossed for your UK visit Nicos.
    Not a lot of rain here, just the odd shower and a few spits and spots.

    Not sure what's on the cards for today but kettles on.. help yourselves

    Enjoy your day

    It’s rained/ thundered on and off all day, but still hot and muggy, but not as bad as before - perfect blight weather I hate to say.

    OH had his second jab this afternoon so we did a quick gory hop before he went in.

    funnily enough the chooks don’t seem to mind this warm rain- they look pretty bedraggled at the moment

    Not sure, but we think maybe….maybe … ( don’t get too excited) …. We might be able to go to the uk in a couple of weeks to meet our granddaughter and see our children. Just depends on lockdown rules/ variants etc etc.
    Last time we were over was February last year…it’s been a VERY long 17 months

    Nearly weekend!
