Good afternoon all. We have a seasonable 21C here but have only had 3mm of rain and not the promised 8.5! More dribbles going on but again, nothing like they promised. We have been and done a raid on the SM and a DIY store for supplies for the weekend of rellies. Senior SIL thinks she doesn't do spices or curry so I'm going to creep up on her with a chicken pastilla for lunch after they arrive tomorrow and then Spanish hake with a smidge of chilli for dinner.
Called Possum when we got back and she's passed all her exams - again. This follows a couple of years where she lost her way thanks to a completely unsuitable, disastrously needy and manipulative boyfriend. Thank goodness she's coming out of that now. It also means we get her all summer and no hassles with re-sits. She wants to learn to paint furniture and I will also teach her to sew if I can. She doesn't do gardening, especially now she knows there are snakes but she has started growing herbs in pots........ Slowly slowly catchee monkey.
Chicky - hope Chicklet survives without too much stress. You too.. Nearly done now.
Dove - there's tennis at Eastbourne! Joyce - glad you had a good sleep. Hosat - can't bear F1 racing - nasty, noisy, smelly stuff ful of unpleasant people, including commentators and managers.
Busy - I'm sure other stuff will be on point for your OG. There's always something "you should have been here last week" in my experience and something else that takes it place.
Have a good day all and success with your projects.
