Welcome back to the lounge Podds, it is very good to see you again.We are incredibly lucky to have such inspirational peeps here - you, Meldy, Westie, Sue, Tubs to name just a few!
That's a great blog Westie, lovely photo's too. I'm afraid I can't agree with you opinion that the sssssssnake was the icing on the cake though.
Meldy, shit shovelling in this heat must be particularly unpleasant 'Operation kitchen' does sound fascinating.
It's still Ramadan? This month seems to be going on for ever!
Sorry to hear about YummyPa, I do hope this turns out to be nothing serious. The relay sounds great fun.
Chuggy, the audience chose 'Finlandia', I would have been happy with anything except the Vaughan Williams. The encore was 'In the hall of the mountain king'.
It is much more comfortable here today, still lovely and sunny but cooler and less humid We took SM out for tea at a localish garden centre and are now back home chilling. No aquagym tomorrow, they phoned to say that they were flooded...
Evening (or is it still afternoon as it is still light?),
(((((Snaily))))) I am so sorry that you have suffered yet another loss of someone special.
Dragon lady, I do hope the weather doesn't stop your fun on Sunday. Be safe.
Chuggy, no idea about Monty's issue I'm afraid, but it is the kind of thing that certainly needs dealing with quickly.
Spence, I am really impressed that you are consistently turning out sub 9 min miles, well done you!
That doesn't sound too pleasant Daffs . I remember a brief visit to Skegness, years ago, when were we in Mablethorpe on holiday. I have never felt any desire to go back - and it sounds as if things certainly have not improved!
Yums, it sounds as if you are a dangerous person to be around, especially when you are on the bike
MS and I met his sister and her hubby to seethis last evening. The concerts was great, despite the lasers and fireworks being less than exciting! I think we forget just how good BSO are, something to do with them being on our doorstep I guess. It's just a pity that there is no effective air-con in the concert hall.
The thunder last night was pretty loud but that was the worst of it for us, thankfully. It's no less humid today though
Chuggy, the socks seem to be very sensible, running in that heat does not sound healthy!
Daffs, hope you are feeling better. Many peeps seem to get on well with the new implants, the older ones had a lot of problems.
It was cooler and grey here this morning, became humid and rained after lunch and is now heating up again. Alfs has finally deigned to get into his bed with the cooling pad, will have to make sure he doesn't get cold!
(((Daffs))), good idea to go back to the clinic.We used to fit a lot of coils in my previous job and I don't think I ever heard of someone having problems for this long in the absence of problems
Welcome home Your Meldyness, you have certainly earned that gin! You too Podds, if you are looking in.
Great to see you Larry, how lovely to have Holly and Stanley to visit.
Chuggy, I'm not surprised that the bath was enjoyed by you and Monty alike! Hope the farm animals aren't suffering too badly, I think I remember a lot having to be slaughtered in your area one year, due to a prolonged drought?
Spence, how exciting for your daught to arrive in an Aston Martin! They are my dream cars but I doubt I would even be able to get in/out of one these days.
It was still 25c here when I came back from choir at 9pm yesterday. I have a quiet day today and am not even going to get dressed, it is far too hot I have ordered a 'self-cooling' (doesn't have to be filled with water or put in fridge beforehand) mat for Alfie - but I might nick it for myself if it is any good .
I'm afraid that, not only did we not win the quiz, we didn't do too well at all. I suspect that might have something to do with the two jugs of Pimms that bff and I sunk during the course of the evening
Alfie is not very happy in this heat. Cleo, despite being both black/white and fluffy, doesn't seem to be suffering so much. I don't know how other 4 legged WAISTers are coping.
