    Good morning everyone

    Yay! It's my kind of weather day today. Bright yet thankfully
    with a lovely cooling breeze. Admittedly there's not been
    any rain yet but I remain ever hopeful!

    It's 'Don't Step on a Bee Day' today and I found
    this excellent site for my morning post today on the Alphabetty
    thread.



    https://www.campingintheforest.co.uk/england/forest-of-dean/things-to-do/articles/blog/dont-step-on-a-bee-day-2017

    Hope you all enjoy.


    Welcome back sheils - sounds as you both had a brilliant
    time away. I just googled Delamere Forest too (same as
    fire**fly) and it looks absolutely stunning.


    Your newly decorated bedroom sounds delightful sylv -
    with the lovely new pine unit taking pride of place.


    Love the sound of your barbie evening fire**fly - perfect
    weather for it!



    As you say .... it's good to have a natter and a rest ... not
    forgetting the few drinkies!


    I bet your GKs can't wait for tomorrow rose! Hope they all
    have a brilliant time away.


    Have a lovely and lucky day all, take care.

    Afternoon peeps. Was speaking to a neighbour and she was telling me she had painter and decorator in to do her living room and hall. Saw him arrive this morning. She said he had took all his tools upstairs and came back down for paint and it had gone. Never saw anyone else. Seemingly he was lucky if he was up there for a couple of minutes and someone had stolen it. Don't normally have anything like that happen around here and at that time in the morning there are usually loads of people about including most of my neighbours heading out.

    gosh, that sounds awful re the paint being stolen rose
    can recall many years ago when we moved into a new
    house & the chap who was doing some renovation work
    for us left his saw out on the front garden for a few mins &
    that disappeared!
    we've had a bit of a thunderstorm this afternoon
    heavy down pour for a good while with thunder rumbling near,
    winds really up now so think we're in for more later!

    Good evening all, hope you have had a lovely day. It was raining here most of the morning but cleared up this afternoon. Still pressing of with the bedroom, the trouble is it takes longer the older you get.

    Shame about your neighbors paint being stollen Rose.

    Glad you enjoyed the barbie firefly and glad you managed to have a drink and natter, it does you good to have a break sometimes.

    Glad you are home safe Sheils.

    Sylvia more I think of it the angrier I get. If I was coming in with even one pot of paint I would really have a go at them. Just so sorry she or I didn't know who it was I was really angry hate anyone stealing. I can get it somewhere without food but please if you are starving or going without just ask. There are some nice peeps out there

    Got home this afternoon and have one load of washing dry and ready to iron. Another load ready to hang out in the morning. Had DD up for glass or two of Prosecco and a catch up. It was a great break but must admit it is nice to be home!

    Terrible the paint got stolen rose. I am always amazed here when the workmen leave their vans open with all their stuff inside and often the keys in the ignition too.

    Finally had a decent win - 100 Ticketmaster (from Asda and Danone). Nice surprise to come home to.

    Good morning everyone

    Hope you're all ok. Please send some of your lovely
    rain my way fire**fly - we haven't had a drop here and
    yesterday it ended up another warm and humid day.
    However, I did get my washing out and dried! The
    downside of that is the pile of ironing waiting for me!

    May have to do yet another rain dance later if the
    wet stuff is not forthcoming!

    Was out earlier this morning giving all the plants in tubs
    a good watering and also gave the bird baths a good
    clean out, so birdies and flowers are all sorted.

    Well done with your Ticketmaster win sheils - brilliant
    prize.

    That's dreadful about the paint being stolen rose! I
    really cannot understand the reasoning behind any
    sort of theft - it just makes my blood boil.

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

    Thanks everyone, got my eye on Bowie Experience at Edinburgh Playhouse and Hairspray at Blackpool so will check them out when the actaul code gets emailed through.
    Beautiful sunny day here so we will be getting some gardening done after lunch. Washing is all done and hung out and we had a walk down the town to get a few supplies as well. Having cuppa now.

    Enjoy your day off indie.

    Hope you aren't working too hard on your bedroom Sylvia.

    Hope it has dried up for you FF and Alfie has got some rain!
    We actually had a bit of rain through the night I think.

    What part of Majorca are family off to rose?

    Good morning all.

    Sending you some rain Alfie, its wet and rather cool here at the moment.

    Paper on the wall and the rest painted now in the bedroom, just the door and frame to do now. Painted some of the radiators last night and they are looking really good. Used the Ronseal radiator paint and it was lovely to use, would recommend it.

    Well done on your win sheils.

    firefly - DH has a job keeping up with the birds and squids now firefly. We have had to put some elastic from one feeder the another to keep them on as the squids keep knocking them off. Must try and get him a wall chart of birds for the kitchen as he is trying to sort out which are finches or something else at the moment. He is really getting into it now.

    Hope you family have a good time away Rose.

    Enjoy you day off Indie and try and relax and do something for yourself.

    Have a lovely day everyone and good luck.

    Home again. Glasgow Airport was a nightmare. They are off to Porto Cristo shiels. it is up the northern end of the island. DS has hired a car for two days so that they can do a bit of exploring and they hotel is all inclusive. This is the third year they have booked all inclusive so that kids can eat ice cream and anything else that takes their fancy to their hearts content without mum and dad shelling out all the time lol.
