I use old Goretex walking jackets too pansyface. Those cheapo rubbery ones are very hot and  unpleasant - unless that's your 'thing'...

Not sure which mishap is worse ...

It's quite frightening when those stones hit the windscreen. 

Still some sun here but cooling now of course. Only just in double figures when I left this morning and a heavy dew on the grass. 

Great result in the men's long jump

As they say there's no such thing as bad weather only unsuitable clothing! 


They've never been on a Scottish hill in July  barry...

Hi Green Claws- to be honest, any half decent waterproofs will do the job well enough. You'll get a good selection in any outdoor shop. You wouldn't need anything top of the range unless you garden in very extreme conditions. Something slightly bigger than normal so that you can  get warmer layers underneath is probably a good idea too.  Most people opt for wellies in wet weather, but many use walking boots - I use my old ones unless it's very wet underfoot. Hats are a more personal thing. I would simply put a hood up as I don't like hats! 

What is this please

Morning all. Sunshine here - hurray   but I have to go to work... 

doc- the back pain's nothing compared to the pain of the credit card statement...

Pat - Clari was suffering with the heat - no chance of that here 

Glad hubby is well on the mend now. I'm sure you'll both make up for lost time -  I see you've already started! Know what you mean about those cookery shows. Apparently less people are cooking - the opposite of what was intended. We're just sitting watching them and eating more 'instant' food in case we miss something! 

Have to go - catch you all later. Have a  great day 

What is this please

 I have one sitting on my desk at work just now. A colleague's son had found it  - but he's lost interest in it!

Lovely pix LP. I remember the programme but can't recall exactly what they showed in terms of the restoration.

Know what you mean pansyface 

Need a couple of trees to screen a shed

I'd certainly agree with obelixx's suggestions Matteo, but I noticed you said the height you'd be 'permitted' is 3 metres. Who has determined that, bearing in  mind your neighbour has planted an oak tree!

I think the trellis idea might be easier for you to manage in terms of pruning etc than the stilt hedge, but you'll know best how much skill you have and how much time you'd have for it's maintenance. To get the maximum effect you'll need a good gap between that hedge and your boundary to get in behind it for trimming. That leads me to another question, sorry. What type of boundary do you have - is it fence, wall or hedge? Apologies if you've said and I've missed it.

Hello all you lovely people - I'm home from t'mill. Can't say I enjoyed it too much  

The sun's decided to come out here but I need my dinner first and maybe a catch up with the athletics.

Off for a quick look round here while I have a cuppa

Morning all. If I look out the rear windows it looks quite nice - looking out the front ones though.... heavy black ones...

Work for me too chicky - my week off went too quickly 

Fairylet had a good day - thank you all. Much cake consumed - I may have to start on the next 100 sooner than I thought  

doc - you have such exciting adventures. I'm picturing you in your pith helmet as we speak  

Glad hubby is on the mend Pat and hope all goes well today with yours Yvie. Not surprised you didn't sleep well.

Off in a minute or three so will catch up with you all later. Hope everyone has a good day
