All of you over in the west, the best thing to do if storms threaten is to go to bed with a wind up or battery powered radio, a couple of flasks of coffee or hot chocolate, some extra blankets and hot water bottles and a big plate of doughnuts. You are then guaranteed to survive anything the weather can throw at you.
I'm back from visiting the Aged Ps ... Ma doesn't have new teeth yet - Bro had misunderstood - at least two more appointments after today are needed. Today was about more impressions and measurements and the choosing of the colour. The dentist told Ma she could have any colour she liked. Ma looked more than a little confused Having ascertained that he didn't mean blue, pink or purple, we looked at some samples and managed to steer away from Donnie Osmond Sparkle and have settled on something quite natural looking. Phew!
Anyway, I had quite a good visit with them, Ma was quite jolly even if confused about a lot of things. Pa was looking quite good and was eating a good lunch while Ma was being seen by the dentist. Then Ma joined Pa to have her lunch and I left and went and had a little picnic in the car on the seafront near the pier. The sea was steel grey and almost flat with just a slight swell, and there were little flocks of gulls and other seabirds floating on the surface - absolutely beautiful and so calm.
