What's the weather like in your area?

Jo, sorry to hear about the cold and you have to take care.
It is not raining yet although looking very much like it, just arrived back after a late start, I suddenly remembered my notes were in the back pocket of the trousers in the washer going full blast. Stop washer wait for what seems hours and get money from pocket soaking wet. out came the iron and kitchen paper ironed them dry slowly but fifty pound is worth taking care over so all was well only shopping started later than planned.

Stockton on Tees partly cloudy??? which part would that be then? I can see blue skies bright as can be and lovely sunshine beaming at me. Should write a song about it or even a sonnet.
Yesterday turned out nice with late morning and afternoon sun then a downpour tea time followed by the last embers of the sun sinking in the west, it reminds me of those Desert sunrises and sunsets I never tired of watching, one minute there next minute gone.
Washing shopping and with a little luck a wander round the GC running quickly past the "C" things, at least a smaller section of them this year.

I hear water and it's everywhere
it seems to be dropping from the air
I stuck my head out and it wet my hair
I wonder why
I wonder why?

I may put that to music and get Doris Day to sing it then SCD could do an American Smooth to it. Stockton light rain says the box, so why have I got a pond out back then.

Guess what, a beam of sunshine has now bathed me in light out of a dark dour sky, now at my age that scares me a bit, is it the call I ask??
A quiet day no shopping and the garden is out unless I break out the rubber dinghy so cleaning cooking Piano practice maybe, I could do with some.

Funny old day it turned out to be.
The sun was shining as I got ready to go out and as I locked the door it was bucketing down. Drove down the back lane and was sandblasted by leaves small branches and anything loose, water was gushing off the fields and running down the road like a river.
coming home was no better it got so dark we had lights on full.
Tonight I sat watching a glorious sunset with clear sky and now it is raining?
My Daughter informs me I have also done my "C" shopping plus birthday presents for two in December and will be billed shortly, funny I do not remember doing it, I must start a diary.

A while back the box said light rain, watching the teeming water run down the road I would not like any heavy rain. Now it says Stockton cloudy so with the sun blasting through the window I look out and sure enough it is cloudy apart from the blue patch overhead. It looks very murky your side of the Styx Rain. Must go out but will stay well clear of yon yorkshire bit.

Hello my Dear Lowena, Tongue in aspic is a much tastier dish than one pickled in vinegar .
Foible a gentle eccentricity compared with having something life changing you did not ask for forced on to you for 10-12 years.
As for inter-net immortality who reads that stuff, with people unrolling their whole lives on those social networks I would not touch with a barge pole, they seem to write a lot but do they read??
My point was the BBC and I also thought the local History service would be google free only to be shocked to find they hand over everything without you knowing
So lowena a question? do we retire from all forms of writing apart from hidden files you keep for the last bugle blowing or do you carry on knowing that some big collecting agency in outer space watches your every move??
Any way all that aside I still love you


what decade is your garden?

A better question may be what Century, having grown up in a garden that had grown fruit and vegetables for nearly two hundred years I think I tried to emulate it.
There are still plants from then passed on as things changed, the fruit and veg meagre as a treat for Grandchildren now my needs are less.
I was never a fashion follower so the individual touch always reigned supreme.

Stockton started sunny with blue sky although it was cloudy to the south.
We then got rain more sun and ended up with clear sky and it looked very bright over Rain's Hills.

"Oh yes" goggle it indeed and then find the answer is something you yourself put on some other forum as i discovered last week.
Looking for some old information my local history section had lost and having to go to the site then enter my own name, there was a very recent picture of me I had never put on any site. I can only think the grandchildren who use social networks must have put it on a site that was picked up by google. We are told it cannot happen, it obviously does
Going through, it turned out there was page after page from many forums a lot of them BBC there must be several hundred, I did not check for any from this site as yet. Big brother is watching and is called google.

Bev, Pergoniums should have one third of the top growth cut back to over winter although I also remove any old stems and leaves.
Fuchsia should be left until March when a light trim is all they need but clean out any loose or broken stems and leaves.
Keep in the light in the greenhouse and they need to be just damp but not dry, overwatering will kill them.
You may have flowers on both at Christmas I often do.
