It's very quiet here today, where is everyone?  Are you all out in the garden? 

I'll try that again!

Out in the garden?  Don't you know it is pouring with rain hereMonster   No, I have been at a Development Trust meeting this afternoon. Very interesting, then out in the wet with the dogs.  Sitting down now with a nice cup of coffee ( and a very sore mouth!!!!)

Well at least I have someone to talk to now. Big_Laugh  Danuta, you are going to the dentist again tomorrow aren't you?  It's raining here too, on and off so I haven't been in the garden either.

Busy, busy Rae, put your feet up for a while, you deserve it.

I went shopping, bought very little and spent almost £20.00; how does that happen? Thumbs_Down


I'll try that again!

Oh dear, that's not good.  Try to hold off buying anything else if you can.

I'll try that again!

I should be alright for a while, I tend not to do much during the week apart from go to work, go to the gym (which i pay for on a monthly basis, so "free at the point of use"), go to welsh, and come home again.

So what's your excuse then?  Ah, it will be the dreaded time difference won't it?

Yep it's that pesky time zone issue..... it does make for some odd conversation on the phone, e.g. wishing someone goodnight when I've just had lunch.  It also regiments my Sundays into time slots of who I can call & at what time.

 Not sure what I shall be up to today.....depends if I feel like a couch slug! I should clean the OH's bathroom, do a few loads of laundry, iron work shirts, clean up left over mess in kitchen from yesterdays picnic etc etc etc .....but I'd much rather have a long soak in a bubble bath with a good book and mebbe try baking something yummy (back to the flapjack saga).....

I can relate to that. I used to be 7 hours behind my children then we moved to Latvia and was then 2 hours ahead. Now my daughter has moved to Australia and she is 5 hours ahead of me and I am still 2 hours ahead of my boys. Eeek

I have been on our land all day, giving my brain a break from studying but boy do I ache now. Hope I can concentrate in the morning tomorrowDoh. Oh and we had beautiful weather, lovely!

Testing…

Hmm...interesting, I've been unable to post for the last half hour or so, kept getting the message 'unable to post message, forum not set'.  It's not a jelly is it?

I'll try that again!

Well I think it would be raspberry, because a raspberry is soft warm and very sweet, but occasionally you can get a scratch from the bush and you have to be careful and watch out for beasties in the centre. Big_Laugh   Big_Laugh

Only joking folks!

Well there is not another soul to talk to tonight so I am going off to bed with my book.Yawn

Slept late, raining out so got all my pots of seed compost ready for sowing and put them out in the rain to get nicely damp. Rain stopped. Went back in and killed mealybugs and replaced the sticky traps in the conservatory. Removed sticky traps from dressing gown. Back to bed for a snooze as I went a bit mad in the garden on Saturday and knackered myself. Awoke some hours later and lay in a hot bath for quite a while....oh dear, teatime already...undid some knitting for the millionth time, only a scarf but I keep trying out different stitches that I think will suit the wool, but they don't. Time I had another sleep.Yawn
