What's the weather like in your area?

Blowing a gale here . I'm hoping it will keep the rain away. Don't think we've had a decent summer for at least 3 years.

I have nominated myself for cheer leader and reserve the right to pick my own costume - plus fluffy wavy things of course,

All menu plans looked good for last night -  Will be looking out for chocolate cosmos.

Jenny - pic taken near Tomitoole - forgive spelling if it's wrong.

Next door building summer house with shingle roof ???  He spoke to me yesterday so I asked . He is also sending someone to have a look at vib / tree who knows his stuff - can't wait ! I am becoming obsessed.

Squirrel has robbed all contents of bird table . Hubby spotted him first thing this morning.   Greedy little bxxxxg !!!

Just looking through my pics and wishing the weather was better. I like this one of the patio taken earlier in the year and there's one for Jenny from our last visit to Scotland. I'm very envious of where she lives . It's beautiful - hoping to go back later in the year.

That was meant to be  '' or her '' as well . I see the little runt shares my name - what an insult.

Good ( and I've spelt his name wrong - it should be Daley of course ).

That young man has done phenomenonly well considering the trauma he's been through. I have the greatest respect for him.

Hope the '' troll '' gets the book thrown at him.

It's horrible here - misty, drizzly and damp.   I have plenty of cake in . Coffee cake and egg custards .  I left my carnivorous plants out last night by mistake , thankfully they haven't been attacked by anything .

Why are people so cruel, poor Tom Daly's been targeted by internet trolls - just been checking news.

I have been spying out the landing window - there's wood everywhere . He has someone with him now - can't tell what it is yet but he is a landscape gardener and maybe building something for a client. I've asked him about vib/tree but he doesn't know -  he didn't seem to know much to be honest which I found to be a tad unusual but I think hard landscaping 's his thing. Gary has identified the sucker- it is definitlely this:

 Leaves are identical. One step nearer - V. Opulus.

My eardrums are still being assaulted - he has a whizzer or something out there now. Wish I was brave enough to nip upstairs and see what he's up to. My car is playing up.

You have guessed correctly - I have cats ( yes plural ) So, at the risk of being excommunicated I have come clean. They are more or less house cats , not let out at night and have been spayed. They have litter trays and if they are out , they come in to use them. I am expecting a backlash now. Oh, and they have bells bigger than the olympic one.

Geoff , your photos are stunning - what a beautiful garden you have. I've been watching the mens' synchronized diving and thinking about your favourite attire - there is a lot to choose from on there !

Becks and Jenny - there is a saying in Lancashire - What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I speak from experience. You will get through your troubles.

Going to check out Gary's info now . If no-one ever speaks to me again I'll know why !!!
