    Evening all.

    The day has disappeared and I have next to nothing to show for it. Went for a little lie-down this afternoon after some gardening exertions and walking the dogs. Woke up four hours later! Must have needed it but even so, I could have done with doing some productive stuff too.

    Anyway, thought I'd best drop in and see how you're all doing. Say hello and all. Hope the smiles found you safe and well.

    Catch you all tomorrow. Have a lovely evening.

    Good afternoon.
    Rainy showers and very breezy.
    In and out like a yo yo.
    The weeks are slipping away with no real summer weather.
    My greenhouse is full of tomatoes but they are all still green.
    I hope some other peeps have the sun.

    Littie, I am the same, I spend lots of time knitting and when I put it down I cant seem yo go back to it.

    Mornin n’alln’all

    I was just looking out of our bedroom window and thought how gloomy the skies are today.
    Then I suddenly remembered that it’s new and it’s tinted!
    Yes, it’s grey out there but not as grey as I thought!

    Still not decided if it’s going to be a weeding and domestics day or a camper day ….we’ll decide over breakfast no doubt.

    Anyone care to join us…scrambled eggs and mushroom and a brew?

    Morning

    Looking at the BBC and met office one has sunshine all day the other says rain from mid morning onwards.
    Think I'll go with the sunny BBC today

    Nicos we thought the late frost had killed the Apple blossom but it looks like we've going to have a bumper harvest. Not like last years 5 apples between 2 trees.

    enjoy your day.

    Just picked a pile more cherries for freezing.
    All this rain and they are starting to split. Frustratingly they’re not properly black yet though - but I’m not complaining as there are loads and I thought the frost had zapped all the blossom, so they are a bonus.
    Not as super sweet as they could be but still very edible. Yum yum

    Any one fancy a brew?
    I fancy several cakes or biscuits with it too….

    Is that Snoop I can hear pottering around outside with a watering can?
    Not me. We had an absolute downpour last night (flattened my winter brassica seedlings...). Only pea-sized hail so the other plants were OK. Got to count my blessings. Anyway, no need to water today.

    Maybe it was the smiles you heard. I got up very early today and they set off about the same time. Got up early because I was woken by one of the cats. It was so chilly she was determined to get under the quilt and then padded up and down on one of my arms. I felt like a pincushion. Not what you want at 5.30 in the morning. Still, as Mr Snoop says, we'll be sorry when she's gone. Going on 17 this year. She's the last of the cats we brought with us when we came here.

    Getting up early was useful, though, as I finished a huge job and sent it off, only to realise that today is a public holiday here, so nobody in the office to receive it. Still, at least it's out the way. But plenty more to do. Good to get some more done and then do a bit of gardening at the weekend. The beds are too soft to do anything with today. Oh, the mole has moved slightly and is now throwing up a mound on one of the paths. So no probs. Fingers crossed it keeps going along the path rather than into another bed.

    Have a great day, everyone.

    Time for a brew anyone?
    Looks like we’re in for mixed weather over the next few days so it’s going to be ideal for playing around in the potagers and flower borders .
    Cant believe it’s almost weekend again. The weeks are flying by
    Having said that, the weeks might be flying by but as I’m only having 800 very healthy calories a day on this diet the days are dragging between meals But it’s working so I’ll keep it up for a few more weeks.

    Lottie - you have brought back many happy memories for me too. We used to go to Steam Fairs with the children when they were younger. I can still smell the events in my mind ( if you know what I mean!)
    We also regularly visited the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester which is fascinating if you are into steam power.

    Right…I best shake a leg!
    Lots of stuff to do today. With any luck I might give myself the day off tomorrow ( Yeh…some chance unless we go out in the camper - hmmmm….now that’s an idea!)

    Enjoy your day peeps.
