Joyce I thought clootie dumpling was for Chrxxxmas, or New Year. Never had it in summer before.  Ahh, but we didn't know it was going to be summer.

Thanks everyone for anniversary wishes.  Very hot on the slow M6 journey but at least I brought my shorts. (Look away now).  Mum and Dad seem to be coping fairly well, given their ages, 

Dd you sound very positive and Charlie will be such a help.  Enjoy your day off and I hope there's many more to come .

I bought an agapanthus for Mum which has bloomed all summer here but my own has not come out at all.  (Blxxdy midges have though).

Ouch Dove.  Son & sil were stung by wasps on the same day last week.  When I asked son where he was stung he said 'on the bowling green'.  Turned out it was his arm.

I'll remember more on the second re-read.

Perfect - just in time for supper Fairy.

Just about the same here pp and raining to boot.  Hope you lucky people are keeping your cool.  Dove looks as though she's managing.

Happy Birthday to Fairylet.  Hope we get to see a piece of the chocolate cake.  It's 2nd son's birthday tomorrow but I bought a cake.  I'll see him before he goes to work then disappear down the M6, taking part of his cake with me. It's our 37th anniversary on Thursday but we're celebrating the two events when I get back.  Good luck with the next 33 Obelixx.

Morning all, hi Pat

That was a rather rude awakening Daisy.  I'm going to visit Mum and Dad so have been busy cooking for the freezer, packing etc, ready for tomorrow morning. 

Enjoy your celebrations today Obelixx and belated congratulations.  I think you deserve a break from all the hard work recently.

Hope you're having an enjoyable break LilyP.  It sounds a lovely place.

Right, another load of washing to put on.  Don't know where it all comes from.

Have a good day everyone

Joyce I think they're all different, like fingerprints.  You never know what you're going to get - (Forrest Gump) hope it's not a coffee cream

Fairy I'm sure if you did the dangly/crucifix bits your arms would eventually get longer.  Loved the moon (if I hadn't mentioned before),

Gd, the more photos of the sea and surroundings, the better

Sheps the little owl reminded me of a photo of a foxglove I took a couple of years ago - little owls live in the cups

Fairy, I salute you.  No way could I do all that driving and then the walk. The views are magnificent and I appreciate the fact that you share them with us.

Love the little owl Sheps

Umm, my OH will be glad when the football season is in full swing.  Plus rugby, plus any other sport that comes along,  good job we've more than one telly.

Fairy, how did your ribs cope on the walk?  Hopefully no sudden slides down rocky bits.

Lily, good to see you popping in.  Hate decorating.  The results are always worth it though (if I do it myself)

Hosta, glad you didn't go astray today.  Satnavs anon
