Yet another Rainy Day


Good Morning, What happened to our Barbaque Summer we were promised  I can assure you we are not having one here these last couple of weeks. Yesterday was a lovely day today it is raining what will tomorrow bring.

I would like to thank all of you that left lovely comments on my fourth journal birthday it was great to hear you all love reading my bits and pieces and seeing my photograghs it gives you a lot of encouragement to carry on.

We had two days out this week both of them total wash outs. We did over 100 miles in the car on Monday got caught up in a mini rain storm that lasted most of the way and ruined a nice run. On Friday we spent the day in St Andrews and again we were caught up in the rain with no umbrella.  On our way there we had stopped at a nature reserve and I had left said umbrella there so we got wet in St Andrews.  We went back into the hide on the way home to do some more bird watching as the tide was coming in and that makes for more birds.  While we were there we had another big mini storm over the estuary where we were sitting, glad we were inside the rain was torrencial for about ten minutes and then cleared away as quickly as it came. Remembered to collect umbrella on the way out think we may just need it again this summer.

Family are away for a few day holiday visiting DIL's Grandparents in Wales hope they have good weather and enjoy there visits. They have not seen Ellen  now 8 since she was just over a year old, boy are they in for a surprise. She was telling us about visiting her relatives when she was here on Wednesday we had to laugh it was really funny. 

Not sure what we will be doing today I have a big basket of ironing from yesterday so I will get on with that and maybe I will make some scones.  Bought some new cutters and have not tried them out yet so will try to do that. Think that's about it for today so till next time hope you have a peaceful Sunday.   Love and

Oh Scones, how I used to love them especially with jam and cream lol. Those days are gone. Yes, the heatwave summer has not materialised. It is very humid here today but little sun, just strong breezes. Sorry your two days out were spoiled. Keep up the writing.

Is it nice at St Andrew's? Or would it be if it was sunny? We were going there last back-end when we went to Dundee but were told it's posh and expensive.

Don't you ever stop telling us about your days out! You have an avid reader here, even if I don't always comment.

love, Angie, xxx

We are having lovely weather here right now. Not to hot, weather in the mid 80's and not humid. Strange weather, more like spring or early fall. I will take it though. It is usually extremely hot this time of year. Hope you get some good days soon.
