    Morning folks. Not as cloudy this morning. Still warm but has been easier to sleep. RAF flypast was fab alfie. Where are you staying in Blackpool shiels? It's an old haunt of mine re conferences. So have stayed in a few nice places not many of them have air conditioning in bedrooms though. Hope everyone is well. Hugs for those needing one.

    Morning feels a bit cooler here but still very hot here.

    Alfie managed to finish ironing yesterday. We too watched RAF yesterday. Great air show with all the history. You must be very proud.

    Sheils hope you enjoy show today. Great you were able to walk canals,

    Mummy2threeboys hope your toe heals quickly. Lo at moving your bed around. We did that years ago and know it is disorientating.

    Love the red waistcoat Alfie. M&S have been doing a good trade. We will see what happens tonight. They have done well to come so far.

    Good luck everyone.

    Neighbour has just washed a window for me as she was doing one of her own because window cleaner is not due until next week. Mr seagull has been dropping deposits to us. lol that seagull is a blooming nuisance. Bin men are due again on Saturday so no doubt he will probably bring his friends again. Sun is shining here now and it has turned out a lovely afternoon.

    Indie just seen this comp

    http://www.military-airshows.co.uk/competitions/bigginhill2018ticketcompetition/bigginhillticketcompetition2018.htm

    The price for each ticket was originally £29. No wonder so many went to the Mall yesterday for the amazing display.

    We are at the Premier Inn at Bispham rose. You walk to the end of Red Bank Road and turn onto Devonshire Road. It has been extended but no air conditioning added. Used to always stay at The Sheraton , North Shore as food and entertainment great. It has been bought over now and some rooms updated but price is seriously up on all the rooms - doen't make sense to me! Food isn't as good either. Used to like the old Glasgow owner. Real typical old Glasgow guy.
    Reminded me of my grandad although about a foot taller.





    Really enjoyed the show thanks leanfun. Having a little break and then going for fish and chips along the road. Haven't had proper fish and chips for ages.

    Good morning everyone


    I hope you're all well - it's going to be another warm & dry
    day but apparently that may change tomorrow in some parts
    of Hampshire with heavy thundery downpours. Got fingers
    n' paws crossed! Would love a decent bit of rain!
    The downside is that the weekend will be another scorcher!


    Had a fairly productive day yesterday - starting with very
    early shop, washed car (which was absolutely filthy),
    managed a fair bit of housework & ended the day giving
    the garden a bit of a tidy up!


    Such a shame England lost out to Croatia but so very proud
    of them all. They'll be coming back as heroes. It's wonderful
    how they lifted the spirits of our nation. Not keen on the
    fact that they'll be playing in the 'losers game' against Belgium
    on Saturday though!


    Sounds as if you had a lovely time sheils. Hope you enjoyed
    your fish 'n chips yesterday! Have a safe journey home today.


    Included the following info in my Betty post this morning:






    Why count butterflies?

    Butterflies react very quickly to change in their environment which
    makes them excellent biodiversity indicators. Butterfly declines are
    an early warning for other wildlife losses.

    That’s why counting butterflies can be described as taking the
    pulse of nature.

    The count will also assist us in identifying trends in species that
    will help us plan how to protect butterflies from extinction, as well
    as understand the effect of climate change on wildlife >>>




    https://www.bigbutterflycount.org/


    Have a lovely and lucky day all & please take care whatever
    your plans.

    Morning dull and not so hot here this morning.

    Sheils pleased you enjoyed the show. There is nothing like seeing something live instead of on TV. Have a good journey home.

    Yes, Alfie overall the team did exceptionally well to go so far.

    Yesterday I had two wins. One on Twitter and until it comes I do not know what the prize is. It was Wimbledon related competition. The other was a book as I can!!!8217;t find it on here I think it must have been on Twitter.

    Take care all. Hugs for anyone needing one.

    Morning folks. Lovely and sunny again here this morning. Got woke up at 3am because someones alarm went off. It then went off again at 3.45 and repeated until just after 8am. So a bit tired. Saw an engineers van when I looked out at around 7am. Shame about the football but they did well. Got housework done early though and bed is stripped and neighbour hung it out for me. She is going to bring it back in when she gets back from shops. (bless her) I am so gratefull. Hope everyone is well.

    Was able to get a few things I need done in the garden organised for tomorrow. Friends brother has been working all week sorting out a new play area for the nursery next door. He still has a couple of things to do in the morning and has a delivery of bark coming to put down on Saturday when it is closed. So when that is done he is coming over to me. Neighbour got me a bottle of Macallan Malt from shop as I know he wont accept payment from me. Last time I bought his two grandkids a pressie because he would not accept anything. Got everything he needs for garden in shed. Making him a curry for lunch so he wont starve lol. Every time I make batch curry for friend she phones him because he loves it. Was a lovely afternoon here. Hope you are all well.

    Morning, well done on the wins leanfun.It.s a dull start to the morning here,and a lot cooler. Could do with a little rain now,took sons GF into work and all the grass verges are yellow. The bunnies were out having breakfast but not a lot of greenery around for them. They did say it looks like the weather will change next week ( of course it will the kids start their summer holidays down here next week). Haven't decided what i'm doing today other than washing. Hope you all have a lucky day.

    rain yet. Sigh.


    Very well done on your Twitter wins leanfun! Wonder
    what the Wimbledon related prize is?!


    Lovely of your friend's brother helping you with your garden
    today rose. I think he'll be chuffed with your curry & the
    bottle of Macallan Malt - superb whisky.

    It was nice to get back to the cool of our own bedroom last night (well the downstairs bedroom anyway)

    It is cloudy here at the moment and there is some rain forecast for later this morning - we will see. This area hasn't had rain for weeks which is unheard of. DD's bf has been called out so often lately to fires. Garden is so dry and my little pansies are dying I think. Been collecting the flower heads though so will be planting the seeds to replace them.


    Well done on wins leanfun.



    I had first win of the month which was Pepsi glasses and serving dish from the instant win comp.
    Hope everyone has a lucky Friday 13th.

    Evening peeps. Rained here about 4pm but did not last long. Friends brother is happy as larry with his curry he is going to have another tonight. Friend phoned to say he was over the moon with the Macallan. I wrapped up the box so he did not know what it was. Garden looking fine and dandy again. He also sorted out my hanging baskets so they are looking good again. He even watered everything for me before he left. He had a laugh at me doing things in the kitchen with my bar stool. Well as I am on crutches now can't stand and do things unless I sprout another pair of arms and hands from somewhere lol. Hope everyone has had a good day.

    Good morning everyone


    Hope you're all in fine fettle! It's yet another very dry/hot
    n' humid start to the day here - if anyone's been lucky
    enough to encounter a splattering of rain, I would be most
    grateful if you could send some my way!


    Sounds as if your friend's brother did a brilliant job in
    sprucing up your garden, containers etc rose. So pleased
    he enjoyed your curry & gift. Well deserved.


    Well done on winning Pepsi glasses and serving dish sheils
    & also well done leanfun re. colour changing tumbler win!


    Best wishes to lovely leanfun & Mr. leanfun on
    your 45th Wedding Anniversary



    Sending much love - have a brilliant day!
