Oh Podds! I'm sorry that your lovely lad is so poorly. I also know that you will do what is best for him, no matter how much it hurts you. You will know when the time comes (and I so hope that it is not yet)
We let Sky have a wander around our bedroom while Alf was out this morning. She had a good explore, especially around Alfie's bed. Alfie boy has lost another collar, which means he can't get in through the cat flap (cos the collar has a magnetty tic on it).
Still warm here today but low humidity so much more tolerable. Hope the same can be said for all of you.
Hi and welcome Becks! Sorry to hear about your injuries, hope that you are completely recovered now. Meldy is a fellow rider, I'm sure you will be able to find things in common - even if it is just moaning about the cost of shoes!
I'm now a 'social member' (or maybe an antisocial member!) as I had to give up running. However fast or slow you are, you will fit in here.
Yay for lie-ins Podds! Mondays and Fridays are the only days I don't get one (by my standards, 7am is now thew middle of the night!).
It is cooler and less humid here but still sunny with temps in the mid 20s
Sounds far too hot to stand in the kitchen making jam Chugs! Even if it is apricot, which is one of the best kinds (along with cherry and blackcurrant varieties).
Podds, it sounds as if a good time was had by all
It's a little cooler here today, around mid 20s, but still quite humid. Am currently in spare room with Sky asleep alongside me. We are having some toilet issues but it is very early days yet and I'm sure she will teach us how she likes things in due course.
Alfie was soooo proud of himself when he brought the magpie in. Less so MS who had to put the poor thing out of its misery
Nice to see that both Podds and DL have had appropriate gifts Alfie presented us with a magpie
Chuggy, your summers always sound great fun. Except for the heat. I really couldn't tolerate it like this all the time!
Respect for anyone who is exercising in this. Or even functioning in any way. Took SM out this morning. Suggested she might like a cool drink but she wanted her usual hot chocolate. At least I managed to get her into a cooler top when we got back, and to switch her shoes and socks for sandals. That has been the extent of my activity today and even that feels too much.
Chkuggy, the new choir is very different from the last. This one sings modern, secular stuff. All learned by ear, no music to read. It is also big enough that I can miss the odd week without letting anyone down. At the moment that is what I need but that's not to say that I won't go back to Cantamus at any stage in the future.
Oh bum, I didn't check the Chuggy friend request, just thought she must be one of the many I have missed!
Pods, I'm pretty sure that the 'neti pot' the DL recommended is a new-fangled version of dragon's salt and water paste. So there you have it, having been recommended by 2 WAISTers - in different countries no less - I think you are pretty much obliged to give it a try
Dragon, I hope Aaron's leaving ceremony went well. I think the sunny weather could be considered a good omen.
Managed to get a fan for SM without any problem, will take it over tomorrow.
Sky has been loose in the spare room for most of the day. Either under the bed or behind the curtain. She has eaten well and used her tray, also purred through lots of head-rubs. I'm sure she will settle with us given just a little time and patience. Alfie will be a harder nut to crack!
It has been very hot here today, I'm so glad I wasn't trying to work in it Typical British summer - 8 weeks of rain, punctuated by 3 days where the weather is hot enough to melt the tarmac.
