    Morning, our rain stopped overnight but it's come back. It's not heavy at the moment,lets hope it stay that way,lol. Enjoy your walk Alfie. I have just spotted a huge spider up in the corner of my living room, think it's come in to get dry. It will be ok if it stays there.I had one in my conservatry the other day and every time i opened the door it run out then run back where it came from, When it saw me. I said to my son "wonder if it thinks we are having a game here",lol.maybe the one on the wall is the same one.I am leaving the conservatry door open in the hope it goes out.
    I have food shopping and washing to do today,hope you all have a good day.

    Thanks for the pic Sheils. Great you had your hair done ready to go away. I’m sorry I forgot where you are off to. This next week’s weather is supposed to be better. Hope you have a good journey and enjoy the break.

    Had some bad news yesterday a friend, who does not live near us, has had bad memory problems with numbers. Last week he went for a blood test and was called back to the doctors to say it shows he has some diabetes. He also failed a short memory test the doctor gave him. Looking up the figures for dementia are quite frightening with the aging population.

    DH and I had a little trip up to Westminster yesterday and dodged some showers. We are going over to DD1 ‘s this afternoon so hope weather will be better. Bit warmer here we didn’t need the heating on.

    Have a good weekend all and good luck.

    Well I’ve just looked at the Mail online and coincidence or what this article shouted out at me.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-7143593/Leading-neurosurgeons-simple-workouts-little-grey-cells.html

    It’s American but Some of the tips are good. Well done to Alfie and Sheils all those walks will be doing your brain good as well as physically.

    Strangely when I was at work instead of catching two buses I walked the first psrt mainly due to traffic jams but in that fairly short sharp walk I would come up with my best ideas and plans.

    It’s all food for though.

    Morning,sorry to hear you had bad news leanfun.I have to agree the figures for dementia are scary.They have meds to slow it down but hopefully they can find a cure sooner than later. Enjoy your visit to your DD1.
    Have a good trip sheils.I hope the weather is nice for you.
    It's another wet day here, sun is in and out but black clouds are coming this way.Not got anything planned for today.

    Good morning

    Beautiful start to the day here, similar to yesterday afternoon. The
    sun is shining away ☀️ and thankfully no more rain for the time
    being.

    Managed to do some gardening yesterday for gent who I mentioned
    a few days ago. His gardenís looking better already, although Iím
    thankful that I find weeding very therapeutic because an awful lot of
    the blighters have shot up with all the rain weíve had!

    Huge thanks to the New Forest Roads Campaign speed watch
    team & Hampshire Police. In just one hour yesterday between
    6.30pm-7.30pm (on a certain New Forest road), 44 motorists were
    recorded above the 40mph speed limit. The highest was a motorbike
    at 61mph.

    Lots of drivers were overtaking so they didnít notice the speed
    watch crew until it was too late. A very productive hour.

    Have a lovely break sheils, apologies - I canít remember where
    youíre off to either, Iíve lost track.

    Sorry to hear of your sad news leanfun, many thanks for the link.
    Very interesting. Must admit, I love my walks in the forest, plenty
    of fresh air etc, gives me a feel good factor. Plus I also put the
    world to rights & come up with some excellent ideas/plans for the
    days ahead too!

    Lol at the spiders in your house indie! 🕷 😳 I think Iím ok when
    I come across them outside (sort of!), but not very keen when they
    come indoors. Spotted a ginormous one above my kitchen window
    the other day, then he suddenly scuttled away & disappeared. Went
    into panic mode, wondering where he was lurking but thankfully I
    located him in the sink so scooped him up in a glass & put him
    outside. No doubt heíll be making his way back to the house soon!

    Also saved one the other day, Iíd filled up the watering can & saw a
    spider frantically swimming away inside. Managed to find a twig
    which he grabbed using all his legs 🕷 😳 & I swiftly put him, (still
    clinging for dear life on the twig) in my flower border - didnít fancy
    him coming too close to show his appreciation!




    Have a lovely Saturday all, take care.

    Thanks folks.

    Going to Cornwall! Stopping on way down at Droitwich then 3 nights near Newquay and 4 nights near Helston (2 different caravans breaks) then Minehead, Bridgwater and then Garstang as a break on way back.
    Finished my packing and just going to bring in last of washing.

    Probably won't be able to get online much so good luck to everyone.

    Good morning

    Hope youíre all ok. It was a beautiful start to the day here, and
    I enjoyed a wonderful walk in the sunshine. ☀️ Iíve literally been
    back home for about half an hour and now itís absolutely chucking
    it down! ☔️

    Think itís going to be one of those days, a mix of sunshine & wet
    stuff.

    Puddy cat is happily sending up zzzzzzís on the pouffe, Iíve
    been forgiven now, happy days.

    Think Iíll be catching up with comps this morning then out
    gardening this afternoon when the weather brightens up a little!



    Have a lovely Sunday all, take care.
