It has rained. Every. Single. Minute. Of. Daylight. No let up at all. Mind you, the weatherman had warned us that it would be raining in biblical proportions of torrential standards yesterday. However, not a drop fell. It was burning hot sunshine. A bonus.
The HG tried out his new garden cutters on the bay tree.
The boy did just fine with his A Levels and now has 4 to add to his CV. His Uni Place is secure and is on hold till September 2016. He has a year now to find the right apprenticeship for him, or he'll go to Uni. All's well. Our school career is done!
Today I have had my first go on the overlocker. I spent a while looking at the manual and the machine. It took me less time that I thought to thread it up and away I went!!
It's MUCH faster than the sewing machine.
It's 6.35pm and the news is on. The terrible explosion in China; the story that someone has tried to burgle Cilla Black's house; Cuba has a new U.S. Embassy and the awful plight of the Syrian refugees arriving in Greece and there's a big hole appeared in the road in Manchester, probably due to the rain.
I rarely watch the news, is depressing. I find ignorance is definitely bliss.
Tonight, once the tumble dryer fixer man turns up ( he said betwixt 5.30pm and 7.30pm )( time is running out) , it will be an easy tea and I will watch the Jo Brand spin off Bake off program with my knitting. Don't hold your breaths, but, there may be a 'ta daaah' tomorrow!!
Oh yes, just before I go... The squeamish may want to look away now. You know how I was bragging about my 'wildlife free' veg patch? Hmmmm. Well, I've had visitors. I don't know who, but they left me presents. No, they really shouldn't have!
Look a little closer
1. Neat little cream balls.
2. These ones creep me out. Like sinister doughnuts. But how nearly they are arranged!
3. A batch of bright orange more cylindrical blobs
And 4. More doughnuts but arranged slightly differently to those above.
There must be something that eats these? I've picked all the leaves off and thrown them over the back wall
Into the grassy ginnel. I couldn't squash them because er Baby Butterflies. !
Lots of love from
