Pouring here. I took all year 5 to a sports festival with other schools at our local secondary that most will go to. It was indoors after seeing the forecast, fortunately. All had a great time.

I had a bike ride yesterday, feeling a bit of a fraud since chickening out at the weekend - most of it was great, but incredibly windy on the last bit of the prom! Still, at the weekend I am heading inland, hopefully with the wind at my back ...

We are kitten-sitting my S-i-L's kititen as her original sitter can't do it. Pippette's cat does not like it at all and has turned into a scary fierce wild animal that growls! Think they'd better be kept apart. Still, Pippette should be taking her at the weekend once the carpet fitters have been!!!

Go, Daffs, Go! ( and hugs to XB)

I just about talked myself into going for that bike ride, then I looked out of the kitchen window and saw the bushes swirling about in the wind and thought better of it

Now I've looked at the forecast for the week ahead and think, I'd better get used to it! (I've entered Liverpool-Chester but just one way 25 miles as I'm nowhere near ready for 50 after one thing and another - not just chickening out, but other things have stopped me getting out as intended)

Pippette said all her girls were outraged about the result. Like you, she was pleased that they were taking notice and bothered about it.

Dance show was very good. I now know where the old folks go on a Saturday evening. I did think 'if there's a fire, I'm out of here first!'

Yes I was thinking it was a bit harsh on the homeless to make them run for 24 hours. Is this Boris's new caring Britain?

Ah well,

Didn't go for a ride - a bit gloomy and windy, and I thought I'm better finishing reports first, rather than trying to do them afterwards. Only 2 more to complete (just the editing and a personal comment - not too personal!)

I've booked ferries to get to the Northern Isles. We might not use the return!

Im off to photograph Spirit of the Dance at our local theatre tonight. I haven't done theatre photography for a while, but I do like photographing dance. Looking forward to it. I might share a pic or two, but I have to be a bit careful about it, as to what I have permission to do re. sharing or making public.

Not surprised but rather disappointed that people have been taken in by all the guff fed them by the press over the years.

Thunder? Rain?

It's summer here! Absolutely glorious all day and yesterday.

No kids in school today because of the referendum. I had to leave a bit early after doing very little to go to the dentist and have two long fillings ...

But I've voted.

A good nights sleep after 3 days away, and I had more sleep than ever before! (5-6 hours a night)

I'd be up for a meetup in Ffestiniog ... it's a day trip for me!

I'm heading off for a residential trip later this week - Welsh Wales again! I do love it, but it's hard work and it takes such a chunk out of your week. Today I spent an hour after leaving work at 5:30 buying bread and apples for the packed lunches that hadn't been ordered (we thought it had been done ages ago by the teacher who left ... cook will make butties if I buy the bread!), and kindling, firelighters, skewers and marshmallows for out bonfire. There's not a wooden skewer to be had after the barbecue weather, so I will donate mine, which I hardly ever use!

I did use the shopping trip to good effect and picked up a cheap lightweight cycling jacket from Aldi! It does look a bit like a flesh-coloured-condom-colour ...


Now I'm writing reports.

Pippette has moved into her house, and, no, I'm not suffering empty nest syndrome. We still have the cat and boxes of shoes ... The cat will go when shes a bit more settled. 

Sue, the zip wire looks great. I haven't seen it before properly. I've never been up Ben Nevis. We only go to Fort William when the weather is bad ...

Crib Goch? I've had to check the second highest though, thought it might be the Glyders.
