Morning all, should be slightly cooler today, there are clouds.

Daughter 1. lives 2h20m from me, son 1. lives 5h away, daughter 2. 1h20m, son 2. 30mins. I have babysat, helped when new babies arrive, helped with house moves and decorating. My mother never babysat as she wasn't a good driver and my my father didn't like her being away. But when we moved to France they came for a week to help and after that they came twice a year for a week each time.

When I was young and had small children I didn't go out to work and it was the same for most of my friends, but now my daughters and all their friends work. Life seems more expensive and complicated now, mobile phone and internet subscriptions, 2nd cars, expensive housing etc.

Yes, Joyce!  It's a roe deer antler, found in the paddock. It's lying on a piece of stone so its not very clear.

Other item is a big round draining spoon with holes in it.

Just read that Runnybeak is taking a break. Will miss her.

Oh dear, you aren't leaving too Runnybeak? I hope nothing is wrong at home. I'll miss you, you made me laugh. The list is getting longer, punkdoc, Wintersong, David K and others too. At least Verdun's back.

Bedtime, nighties.

I thought it was a good design for its purpose. The water feature looked great and would still look great a bit green. The 2 young men will hopefully be proud of their garden now and look after it and mow the lawn. Didn't look very high maintenance to me.

What is your weather like?

It has got up to 39° this afternoon, according to OH's car, but the thermometer by the front door, in the shade, said 37°.

The photo is my lawn and we have at least 2 more weeks of hot weather, but there should be a thunderstorm by the end of the week.

No 1 is to do with wild life, but not marine. No. 2 is not a meat fork, fish slice was warmer.

What a nuisance, Joyce. When we had the kitchen extension built I asked for a cool larder, so the architect drew it in a north corner. What we hadn't realised until it was too late was that he ran the kitchen radiator pipes under the larder floor!

Fairygirl, if you pop in, I have sent you a PM.
