We've got a yellow warning in place. Had some heavy showers that lasted a few minutes, got me both times when I took the dog for a walk, but it's sunny in between. We had a red warning a few days ago.The first time ever here, apparently, but it wasn't any worse than any other day. I do feel sorry for the people who have got flooded. A lot of them say that it has never happened before in their area and they are not on the so called 'flood maps'.
I'm still waiting!
Have done the majority of the cleaning, but realised that hoovering in the lounge a bit daft as AM going to cut the lawn tomorrow first thing! Famous last words? It means will be trotting in/out through patio so grass bits will get everywhere- well they usually do.
Daughter can check later if they've tried again- tis her order after all. Can see me trotting down road to ask for a note on their door for daft delivery drivers who cant read road signs!!
Tonights' meal is a reheating of last nights vegeree, HF-W recipe, plus something extra, so no need to panic about that. I made enough for 4 deliberately! J.
About 20 minutes ago a heavy shower-it must be a difficult job forecasting weather-but the shelter did the job -so a good test
Keep hearing thunder
Saw forked lightning when I took the dogs out - love it! The boy and girls were very brave in the thunderstorm and didn't bat a doggy eyelid.
Hi FloBear, I think your dogs were brave because you didn't mind the thunder. I'm sure they pick up on our feelings. They said on the radio this morning that cats and dogs were getting depressed because of the weather but my dog is happier in the cooler weather even if I'm not.
Another one of the chickens gone broody. Do you think they go broody when they are happy and think it's the right time to raise some chicks or because they'd rather sit on the nest all day and keep out of the rain?
We are now expecting 18 hours of dry weather-8 hours of which will be spent in bed-then bashing and losing a little white ball before the next lot of rain-isn't life grand?
Our last broody chicken spell lasted 2 months-don't know what the motivation is -probably the warm bed thing
Steak salad for dinner-must have done something right today
Ow no frost I read that too its only 11c just now, this morning it was only 7.6c. The boys were drenched yesterday. Its a nightmare getting their work gear dry Ive got the coal fire going just to help dry everything
Veg curry tonight the only veg of my own in it is the courgettes
The salad contribution from the garden is a few lettuce leaves-which for a 28p packet of seeds have been quite a success
Well thats an idea I have lots of salad leaves we can have salad with it too thanks
I award myself 100 brownie points for meal planning
I bet Mrs Geoff has a wee contribution to meal planning too..
I allow her free reign in the kitchen -forgot the eggs came from the chickens so that is out of the garden too.
A bit like my hubby too.
It is in the male gene
-also had tayberries out the garden with home made strawberry ice cream and more squirty cream
Lied about the weather-just chucked it down and more thunder rumblings
Pam, you are partly right. I made a grave mistake with my first-ever dog and cuddled & comforted her through loud bangs so she spent 14 years with a problem - until she went deaf. So now we get out toys and treats when there are loud bangs.
strawberry icecream yummy is it an easy recipe?
My lettuce is growing in the greenhouse outside was a disaster
Woo2, welcome to chook-world! I got mine last August and three days later there were flash floods in our area.
Yes, Woo2- just click on the green arrow at the side of the last named poster in the listings of latest posts. Doies that make sense? I too got very cross/frustrated until someone told me!
Still no delivery- now daughter says t'was only 'estimated' today!!
Also tomorrow completely mucked up as beloved (?) child wishes me to go fruit picking so that I can give her a jam making lesson on friday! I will cut the lawn, I will cut the lawn.... it's not too bad when just got the washing back inside.
So raspberries here I come..... J.
