    I've got DH to put up bedside drawers for DD's room! He told me the tools were in the garage so I started unpacking everything and laid them out to do! He must have thought I was joking and wasn't gonna start them! I'm sure he'll still be at them when I come home from work!

    Very well done on Caboodle book win leanfun! Still
    no change in weather here - may have to get out and do
    a sneaky little rain dance me thinks!


    Have a lovely rest of the day all.

    Lo to your rain Wing. Hope your DH is like our DS good putting together ikea. Last time DH did one for GS it took all day.

    It's hot, hot, hot here. It was so hot we went to DDs at lunch time just to have half hour ride in air con car. I.e. Was 31 degrees as we picked GS up from school. We went into a TKMAX near his house as they have car park and air con. We hadn't been in that branch before and I usually don't like that shop but this was very well organised and I found a bright cotton blouse. GS found a Tshirt and a very heavy book with 1000 facts for GD to buy.

    well done on win Firefly.

    Alfie hope rain comes tonight for you. Love the rain song Firefly.

    Thanks everyone, had a lovely day exploring the Gower Peninsula and a lovely meal at the indian restaurant along the road from the hotel. We are moving a bit north tomorrow up to Aberystwyth after a few stop offs enroute. The weather has been great but think it is cooling down a bit now. Not had air conditioning the last 2 days but next hotel has it so probably won't need it then!
    Good |Luck for August

    Good morning everyone

    Phew! It's yet another hot hot hot start to the day here!





    Am fairly jealous of your rain fire**fly I'm afraid the rain
    dance didn't work this time round ... I must be doing the wrong
    moves! Think when the rain eventually arrives here I'll be
    doing my happy dance .....







    Lol! What are we all like!


    Sounds as if you are having a wonderful time sheils. Must
    admit - air conditioning would be quite pleasant here at
    the mo! Lovely bargains found for all in TKMAX leanfun.


    Have a lovely and lucky day all, take care and stay cool!

    Morning everyone. another dull, cloudy and damp one here. Yesterday turned out sunny and really warm by the afternoon so hopefully we will have a repeat today. Need to get some food shopping done today so will nip out whenever. Neighbour took her puppy to the doggie parlour yesterday and it came back with a bow on its head. lol. Not keen on dressing up dogs or cats but I understand. Whatever floats your boat its your pet. Hope everyone is well. Be lucky.

    DS phoned me just before I went out this morning. He has booked a last minute fab deal for Majorca. They are off on Tuesday. So he and GKs picked me up to go shopping while he went to bank for Euros. Took kids to asda, primark and Ds to Burtons for some things and did my shopping. Got kids some shorts and things DIL some sarong cover ups. Then went to bank and got kiddywinks some euros. Had to laugh at GD when she asked Gran can I have that bikini. She only wanted it for the frills that were on it. DS said ok as she didn't have one so she is now of on holiday chuffed to bits. She has had swimming lessons and instruction since she was 2 and always been told by instructer that she wears a bathing suit so has never had one. GS has shorts with pants in so he can wear them in pool and out so he is happy as well.

    Rose great that your son and family are off on hols. Hope they have a great time.

    Indie enjoy having the house to yourself. Have a good rest.

    It's still very hot here and like your way Alfie has been since very early this morning. No rain at all Firefly.

    We have DS and GKs coming this afternoon in the train for the weekend. Then we are taking them back on Sunday. Hope it might cool down so we can do something with them.

    Hope everyone has a good and and lucky weekend.

    Good morning everyone

    Hope you're all ok on this 'glorious' Saturday.

    It's still bone dry here so no paddling in the rain for me
    at the mo! Although having said that ... it does feel
    a tad cooler (or is that just wishful thinking on my part)
    and we have light cloud but the weather report for today is
    saying 'still warm and rather humid'! Ho hum.

    Apparently on Monday we'll see some rain but I won't
    get overly excited about that info just yet awhile!

    Wonderful news about your DS and family going off on
    their hols rose - hope they have a brilliant time.



    Have a lovely weekend with your DS and GKs leanfun -
    like you .... I'm hoping the weather will be a little cooler.

    Have a lovely and lucky day all and stay safe whatever
    you're up to.

    Good morning everyone

    Hope you're all ok.
    Crikes .... it's going to be another hot one here today!



    I've been outside and watered plants, replenished bird bath
    water, topped up bird food etc .... while it was still coolish.



    ^^^ This will be me later on!

    I'd better get on with some comp catch ups too - always
    seem to be way behind.



    Have a lovely day all, take care - I'll catch up later.

    Good Afternoon,

    Sounds like you are keeping busy and enjoying the sunshine FF and Alfie.
    We have been making the most of it too. Have had a wonderful break and have had great weather.
    We were at Delamere Forest this afternoon. DH used to be taken there as a kid and wanted to see it again. We got back to car and put post code of hotel into Sat Nav and we were only 5 miles away from it. Knew it wasn't that far but was still a surprise.
    Well done to all the winners and hope everyone is well.

    sheila x
    Good |Luck for August
