Teesside dry although getting quite cool. Granddaughter came this morning back from Sunny Spain yesterday and brown as a berry, she spent the time in the pool.
We definitely need some of that sun.

It has been a nice day here, quite warm. Did have a few spits and spots of rain this morning while I was in the garden but luckily it didn't come to anything. I didn't risk putting washing on the line as there were a few dark clouds. Geoff, fancy a man being able to multitask!!!

Beautiful day today. Sunny Worthing living up to its name. Still washing all the gear the husband and the daughter took camping and hosing down tents, air beds, chairs etc. Never see so much mud. On the plus side went out to lunch and could sit outside and eat tapas. Hoping tomorrow will be as good but i doubt it

A few showery bits this morning, but more sunshine and high cloud this afternoon.  Given the weather that we've had to endure, I take this as a bonus!

09/07/2012 at 19:07

Well the washing was sort of dry- enough to finish off indoors

Have just seen the latest forecast still no sign of Summer-in 8 weeks we will be in September-come on I need a scorcha before then.

Just got the dry (!!) washing back inside.

I wore shorts under the waterproof trousers, but it was worth it as have got loads done.

Finally was able to sit out for a few minutes to cool off!

Am now hoping that the rain tomorrow doesnt quite get to us...... J.

10/07/2012 at 09:25

Of course men can multi task, a pint in one hand the TV remote in't t'other watching the football and shouting instructions to the wife on how to unblock the sink. I do not know where women get those idea's.
Teesside today "Its raining, raining in my heart, on my head, on my garden and on my spirit which is dragging on the ground. It makes you want to turn to a single malt spirit even though we will not see the sun anywhere near a yard arm?"
"Grrrrr".

Why didnt I cut the lawn yesterday?

Pulled back the curtains this morning to rain, rain again! Oh well, no chance of lawn drying out enough in the next few days- usually would like 2 dry days in a row- at least the self-heal flowers are pretty. J.

Light rain, predicted to turn heavy. My poppies are looking very depressed again.

Saw the Olympic torch near Henley this morning, in showers, but sun is now out and I am off to the allotment to gather some Lady Christl potatoes,lettuce,spring onions,broccoli,carrots and a punnet of raspberries. They should keep me going for the next few days! Hope this weather lasts for the rest of the day!
10/07/2012 at 15:01

It is literally chucking it down at the moment and has gone very dark-10 minutes ago the sun was shining

10/07/2012 at 17:27

I heard today on the radio that we are not going to get any summer weather until September/October, if this rain keeps up we will be growing webbed feet.
