    Poor Dillon

    Chilli does not bother with them any more, she used to but now ignores them
    She has realised she can't fly I think

    White grout.

    The plugs are all being replaced with new ones - possibly satin steel to cordinate with appliances/hood ;)

    My Summer gloves arrived this morning which I'm very happy about, can wash and put away my winter ones now, won't be so hot and feel like a twit wearing winter gloves in the heat now :D (I need the gloves for the grip and to protect my hands when propelling the w'chair outside)

    Lovely weather here today! Sat outside, done a bit of weeding and realised some of the plants we thought were dead are still alive so our flowerbed won’t be completely bare! :D

    Also given Teds a good brush so he doesn’t look so scruffy!

    I have been very lazy today and spent most of it sitting out

    Was going to give the kitchen a spring clean but that can wait until it cools down

    I was just making a mixed salad to go with dinner and I remember a friend shouting at me for using raw mushrooms in ir, she said mushrooms should not be eaten raw but I have been using them for years and I am still alive
    Does anyone else use them and why should they not be eaten raw

    Went to the shops this morning, since then I have been resting as did to much in the garden yesterday and suffering for it now. I really must learn to know my limitations and not over do it. OH has just come back with Dillon and just missed getting a soaking it's really raining heavy at the moment.:eek:

    I got up early (early for me anyway :Shy) at 8 and took the dogs straight out to a nearby wood and then a stream for a paddle (had one of those successful walks of avoiding the annoying dog walkers and meeting only polite 'put their dogs on leads because mine are' owners which made it stress free). Went down the shops and had a good nosy in the charity shops and got a gorgeous little forget me not flowered trinket box for 99p :) Just been sat out playing gin rummy and eating danish pastries :Drool but it's clouded over now, I'm wondering if it's going to thunder :Nailbiting I'm looking forward to BGT tonight and the Keith and Paddy picture show (it really tickles me although I don't normally like Keith too much), Anyone else been watching these?

    I eat mushrooms raw - like them in a salad occasionally.

    I’m still alive too ;)

    Doesn’t everything give us Cancer according to the Daily Mail?

    I had good intentions but got a hay fever headache (I think) so ended up doing nowt all day really.

    Couldn’t find my tile cutting hacksaw (buried in the shed somewhere and not in my tiling kit :() so couldn’t get on with the kitchen.

    Could have done some planting in the garden but really too hot for that - for me and the plants ;)

    Now I’m cross I wasted the day :(

    Resting sounds good.
    You have rain? Lucky. Was supposed to be cooler here today, but I don't think it is.

    Sounds like a nice day. :)

    Nope, not seen either of those shows.


    I've had a relaxing afternoon doing some colouring.

    Sat with a cup listening to the distant rumbling of thunder :) the wind has really got up so it’s letting a nice breeze in.

    Took Bungo out about an hour ago when suddenly we were caught in a downpour, got rather wet but it was good. Suddenly got a lot cooler which is lovely, think we might be in for a thunderstorm tonight or tomorrow.
