    Good morning everyone

    Terrible news to wake up to this morning re the horrendous
    fire in a Tower Block in West London. I hope and pray that
    everyone is safe. Just watching the news now.

    Hope you're all ok but so sorry to hear that you are still
    poorly rose. xx

    Sounds as if you had a lovely time leanfun over the past
    few days and also meeting up with your sister and family to
    break up your journey home. I can imagine how hot and
    stifling the train was - it was absolutely sweltering here
    yesterday and today is meant to be even warmer!

    Brilliant that your tent arrived wingo - will be lovely to
    put it up in the garden - wonder what Jasper will make of
    it!

    Have a lovely day all and please take care & stay safe.

    Agree with you Alfie about fire in London. I've been awake ages reading about it. DH's sister lives a couple of roads from the fire. They say 30 taken to hospital but with the fire still burning who knows what has happened to the poor people. Once again thinking of people in our emergency services.

    So pleased that your SIL is ok leanfun although understandably
    very upset.

    Can't believe how quickly the fire ripped through the tower
    block. Sadly there are fatalities.

    Morning, terrible news about the fire. Thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved. Glad your SIL is ok leanfun.

    It looks like it's going to be another lovely day here, suns already out and warm. May try to get out in garden and tackle the weeds that just seem to pop up when you turn your back.

    Morning everyone. I've been the same since getting up this morning watching the news on the terrible tragedy in the London tower block. My thoughts are with everyone affected xx

    Hope everyone else is well today I need to get a move on and go get ready for work!
    Alfie, I imagine Jasper will test the tent out by lifting his leg and showering it down!

    Enjoy the sunshine everyone

    Lol indie! I would love to hide in the tent and if he decided to piddle on it, I could squirt him with a water pistol!

    I came home to a large gift box for DD from a comp on fb I entered her for. You had to say why someone deserved a treat and I mentioned about her donating her hair for children with cancer and raising money so I guess she was this months/weeks winner! The only thing is, they sent the wrong message inside the box to someone else who must have been a winner too called Jamie-Lee! The biscuits and treats look delicious! She's given strict instructions no one can eat any yet!

    Hi everyone, been to knit and natter this afternoon so thought I would this lovely pic of the knitted bunnies on today.

    Such terrible news about the flats in London, can't begin to thin how horrific it is for all concerned especially the families of those who have been lost and injured. Prayers and thoughts go up to all involved.

    Lovely pice today firefly and Alfie. I knew you wouldn't have slept in yesterday firefly, we all have days when we faff around and get nowhere fast LOL.

    Glad you familly are OK being so close to the flats leanfun it must have been distressing.

    Good luck with putting up the tent Wingo. Did the cooking equipment etc come with it or have you that to get before you can have a holiday in it?

    Enjoy the rest of your evening everyone.
    BIG THANKS TO ALL WHO POST THE COMPETITIONS

    Them bunnies are lovely Sylvia Did you make them ones?
    The cooking equipment didn't come with tent so will go buy some stuff for it. The items missing as shown in the pic were a water filter which cost £30, a hat with a light attached and there was another item which I can't see what it was. Although I am greatful for winning and the items that did come

    Good morning everyone

    I hope you're all ok.

    Heartbreaking scenes from West London but wonderful
    how the local community and those from further afield
    are all united in helping those sadly affected.

    It's going to be another beautiful weather day here -
    I've got a fairly busy day ahead with shopping, gardening
    (in a shady spot), finishing sewing the curtains for my
    daughter (they're all back down with me end of next
    week) etc etc - definitely no rest for the wicked!

    Aww - love the knitted bunnies sylv - were they made at
    Knit & Natter? They're really cute.

    I came home to a large gift box for DD from a comp on fb I entered her for. You had to say why someone deserved a treat and I mentioned about her donating her hair for children with cancer and raising money so I guess she was this months/weeks winner! The only thing is, they sent the wrong message inside the box to someone else who must have been a winner too called Jamie-Lee! The biscuits and treats look delicious! She's given strict instructions no one can eat any yet!

    Very well done to your DD wingo - most definitely a well
    deserved winner.

    Lol at the scenario of Jasper piddling on the tent and you
    hiding inside with a water pistol ready to surprise him!
    Really made me chuckle!

    Well, time I got my skates on ..... have a lovely day all
    whatever you have planned and please keep safe.
