    London grime is vile stuff. Always went home with it up my nose and as for my work shirts - the collars and cuffs were also disgusting!

    The Weather Thread #9

    It was supposed to be pleasant today, but constant showers were a pain. Some sunshine and this morning there was a little rainbow in the west. To the south there was a big black cloud but it looked like someone had carved a huge mousehole in it - could see the blue sky behind a perfectly shaped entrance. By the time I rushed in to grab my phone to take a photo it had almost closed up. Pretty eastern sky though. Totally fed up with the rain. Looking at the pheasants - they are too!

    Love the Dutch - I remember going to the Royal Tournament and they had their marine band - I think they had the loudest cheers for their performance. That year was particularly good and my dad went and bought the LP (or "big CD" as my son would say) - bagpipes, the marines, all sorts. I would love to nip across the channel (ferry - not underground or miles above ground) and visit there one day.

    Ooh fun. guinea pig craft is just as precious - because you are concentrating outside your comfort zone.

    Dublin murders

    Yep - my attention span is shorter nowadays. But then I always flitted from one thing to another, but TV is rarely watched - or half watched because it is something that OH usually wants to watch. I then pick up the laptop or go upstairs to sew - but as I'm tidying the sewing room, would rather sit and get bored than tidy!

    Nope, but I expect OH will find it at some stage!

    Same here - we used to have to go to town to collect parcels, but they now go 5 minutes up the road to a little village stores - brilliant. And then we have lunch there too! They have 2 tables and the lady bakes her own cakes which I confirm are absolutely delicious!

    Mixed public toilets

    Very true. When number one son was fairly young, but sort of double figures, husband always went to the loo at the same time to make sure no other creature was lurking. With regard to little darlings of the same age and whatever gender, the lack of privacy for those requiring it could be rather unpleasant with unsupervised children or, as you say - even worse if pranks backfired!

    Our DPD man is OK and a regular but there are times when he doesn't show, but UPS is good. Hermes awful!

    Until he gets 2 stops away and you get "sorry your package couldn't be delivered today" - and you know he was supposedly half a mile down the blooming road! With no other houses in between!

    I already have the cobwebs. Been outside and my goodness the spiders have been busy on the greenery! Beautiful with the water droplets. Inside I have my Freds that do their best to make it look festive - and why bother cleaning when it could easily be called angel hair for Christmas!

    Ooooh! The more the merrier. And even if you couldn't we know you tried - all efforts appreciated!

    The Weather Thread #9

    I know how you feel - it all changes for girls. Pity the weather doesn't change too! My FIL was saying about the jet stream pushing the rubbish over - so I showed him the link to the weather with the jet stream - slap bang on top of us! He laughed and said oh dear! Well today was dull and dismal. It did dry for about an hour, but that was about the best it could do. Low cloud made it so misty. Took the birds tea out, refilled the duck pool but thought I heard a distant rumble of thunder. Decided holding a hose if a storm was close was not a good idea! But this evening I see a storm warning for today over tomorrow. Funny thing is the rain has stopped. Not much good at night! Looks like we should have a few smidgeons of sunshine this week - a little is better than none. Not looked at the wind though - still as anything at the moment.
