So, who wants to help ... to cower in the cellar?

Happy Birthday to DiL, Carinthia and hopes that the funeral is as good as it can be for all involved.

We have sun and a gentle breeze, so definitely walkies this arvo. I have made the lucky discovery of King Scallops in the freezer (Mr Bee hates these, as they remind him of fat) so dinner will be quick and easy - scallops and king prawns, fried in butter, red chillies and garlic on a balsamic reduction, mixed salad and olive bread for him. I’ll have all the scallops, natch.

Soo xx

The Met. Office has just upgraded from a Yellow Warning to an Amber Warning. I think I am now supposed to be terrified. Instead, off out for a walk when the washing is done.

If it’s the rain I had to drive in yesterday, I wouldn’t advise it (and I speak as a confirmed ceraunophile)


#1824

Nah

Terror is for red warnings


#1825

And the rain has appeared exactly on cue

Sigh

Orff shortly

Yeah. Amber is “too heavy to be comfortable, but not enough to be interesting”.

Round here it is traditional English good-for-the-crops sort of rain. Still don’t particularly fancy being out in it.


#1832

Dunno if what we have here is ‘organised’ rain, but it’s certainly persistent. One might go so far as to call it diligent, or even assiduous.

I am waiting for the goldfish to start planning for world domination again; the water in the Goldfish Palace is rising.

Poor loves don’t realise that what happens when they swim out over the top will be fatal to them, I suspect. So I bail it out when it gets too close to the top.

Someone I know had a goldfish tank behind the sofa in their living-room and one day when they were sitting watching telly they suddenly found a goldfish in their lap. They got a top for the tank after that.


#1834

Right who sent funder and frightning???

I am not amused,


#1835

Send it here! We like thunder and lightning.


#1836

So do I

But not when I have only just lit the BBQ!


#1837

Rain to the left of me, thunder to the right
Here I am stuck in the middle with sun.


#1838

Calm and sunny here. We walked along the seashore - blue sea, white mini-breakers, Skylarks and all sorts of wild flowers to see. Only one Cinnabar moth, but it’s a sign of early summer. Our weather is set to turn foulish, tomorrow, so I’ll write a shopping list.

Soo xx
