Well yet another Monday I am sure a week has 7 days. Had a lovely time with Dad yesterday and we took him back to the house for one last time we all sat around the dining table and had tea and cake. The house is now empty it was quite sad to think we will never go again.
Hope you all had a good weekend and are enjoying this heat I would prefer it a little cooler, I will go with the flow today must do some cards,

Just read that the temperatures this June look set to exceed those of the last really big heatwave in June 1975, which I enjoyed very much - that was then.  Now I'm with you Becky, I could do with it being a bit cooler, especially at night Rolling Eyes  Doing my best to waft some of the heat up to you Jennie and Margaret:lol:

The upside of all this lovely weather is that I am discovering extenders for paint which is quite fun.  I am not convinced they do keep the paint open for that much longer but at least it isn't drying on the brush on its way from the palette to the paper/canvas.

Glad you enjoyed your last tea and cake with your Dad at home Becky.  It must have been quite a happy sad moment for you all

glad your Dad got a chance to say farewell to his house -sad too tho of course.
Too hot for me and line dancing is not something I am doing!! Did manage a bit of work on ATCs yesterday. Have mainly been weaving (between the heat induced dozing!) as knitting is just too sticky. No doubt next week we will be moaning about it being cold Very Happy

It feels a bit cooler today as we have a breeze which is nice. Yesterday we went to Libby's sports day they did most of it in the school but did have some proper  races at the end  Libby won her's so she was happy not sure about Zoe she had to push the wheelchair Libby just had to press a button on her lap at different points along the way.  The kids enjoy it and the smiles even when they come last are Huge. I am having a day in we are going to lunch with Dad tomorrow we have a computer table in his room I am hoping it is too big as he really doesn't need anything else in his room . Stay Cool

Well I would love to have your weather! We've had days now of cold wet grey windy days. I have had to give in every day and put the heating on at some point. The wind is relentless - just not dying away at all.

On the brighter side I have got an awful lot done in the craft room catching up with all my DT makes for July AND August and have got all my entries finished for the SWRI Craft Show in August. But I would love to see some sunshine!

Terry has sailed from Faroe and is now in UK waters although I am not sure where he is making too at the moment as he is in the middle of the Minch! I track him on AIS once he gets closer to land so at least I have some idea of where he is.

Libby's sports day sounds lovely Becky but going back to your Dad's house for the last time must have been full of emotion. Perhaps I should take up line dancing for keeping warm ..........  Laughing

Sorry you have having lousy weather Jennie saying that you will get lovely weather there when you are away on Mrs Muir, mind you today's weather doesn't look too good dull and overcast I would like a good old thunder storm to clear the air.

glad it is cooler now but quite windy -sorry you haven't seen the sun Jennie
Well done to Libby for winning her race -great that they all have fun. It is learning disability week this week and the group I volunteer with had a celebration -as part of this the Bramingham signing Stars put on a show -they signed (and often sang) a range of songs with great gusto and big smiles -fabulous.
Went to sewing group this morning and have bought a ticket to go with them to the Quilting Festival at the NEC this August. then went to my parents house to help my Dad sort out his large number of e mails. then later they came round for a BBQ -tho we sat in side as it was so windy.
Quiet weekend -I have some dyeing to sort out and my loom to re warp and am going to a line dance social sat evening -Yee Hah! Forum Index -> General
