My daughter, born and brought up in Belgium so bilingual and with a BBC English accent makes me laugh when she tries to say "Put t'wood in th'ole" and "Tha's in t'road" both expressions I dredge up from my youf in Lancashire. I also use Dinna fash, canny lass and bairn which come from my Geordie/Scots rellies up Seaham way. She hasn't picked up on those.
No gardening today. last night we had torrential rain with thunder and lightening and today has been cold, grey and mostly wet. Didn't matter anyway as I had patchwork class today but getting there was interesting on wet roads with heavy traffic and heavy spray - trains and buses on strike now. I've let myself in for some reverse appliqué but only because I can do it by machine. Life is too short for the other kind. For September, they've decided to have a patchwork apron competition. Might do a cooky one for Possum and a gardening one for me.....
Looks like tomorrow will be cold and dark but dry and Saturday will be colder and very wet. I suppose I can get indoor stuff done but I do wish the sun would come and warm us up and let us play and work outside.
I hope it's better your way.
