Let's hope it is a short road to recovery Martin and that she'll be up and ordering the troop very soon.  

I'll try that again!

Veronica, I think the weather is starting to improve, may not be in time for Saturday, but who knows?

Yesterday we took our French guests to the airport to go home, and while they were here, it rained and it rained, and they said they expect it in England. What a shame!  thumbs_down

Veronica, we will have a cosy Fri night supper - with a log fire in our Inglenook if required! Really looking forward to seeing you. Don't you dare cancel devil 

Are you flying onto Stansted? If so, happy to pick you up. Or from wherever you touch down in this locality. 

I think that the met office is being cagey. Already the forecast for Sat in this area has improved from rain to "cloud with some light showers". Sunday is supposed to be mainly sunny.

It's getting better every day. cheers

Ever the optimist, me!

Had a brainwave today:

Q: What's the collective noun for met office employees?

We had great fun that evening, Danuta, didn't we?

For um as can access the BBC web site, feast your eyes on this

For expats who cannot, it's the forecast for our area for the next few days. Sat is showing a strange bright orange globe in the sky with nary a cloud or drop of rain in the picture. cheers

They are always right, aren't they?  star

Whatever the weather, have a wonderful get together.  I'll be thinking of you whilst putting the last sprucing up in place ready for the arrival of our visitors on Sunday and probably doing some cooking in preparation too.

Danny, do you know how many will be coming this weekend?

Looks like the weather is going to be kind to you all.  big_hug

 

Ooh, just looked at the sky in the failing light, and it's pink !!!! Very unusual sight!

Maybe we've turned the corner, weather-wise!

Hope so.  ok

Hi Danny

Yes, I replied to Fiona's email just now, but my reply bounced 🙁 I will be there on Friday! I'm driving up from Stansted, so no need to collect me 🙂

A bientôt (it's 11 pm and about 20C here!)

Have an amazing time all - we had such a fab time last year and I'm genuinely gutted we can't make it this year (wedding) so I want to hear all about it and see many pictures too.  Have a top one - we'll be thinking of you! xxx
