Friday glorious sun bodes well for everyone :)

When I was small we never talked about the weather it was just there. Fine we would be out messing about on the farm - wet the same unless we baked. How simple life was! My Mum very rarely was anything but sunny unless she had a migraine bless her.

I find the begining of May is full of memories that over take me so I may not be about as much just the memories are powerful and I seem to need to pay creedance to them! So I may be here I may not but always I will think of you all. This year I am trying to go on a weeks holiday and that should make the time pass easily. Bonkers but I am going boating in Brittany - yes I am the captain - once I am aboard the boat things will be grand after all there is no where to walk just potter down a gentle river enjoying the birds.

I have been planning this foray for the last four months so it will be marvelous when every thing comes to fruition. Anchors away xgins oh I do have a Rheumy app next week

so I will let you know what he says! Be gentle on your selves!

  • Aha you have sun today too so its not just me .... If you are about today you might like to practice steering a ship ... Though not the kind you mention ... But all practice has to be good...

    True there isn't much room to walk on a boat but you can always fall overboard .so tie yourself to wheel and wear a big life jacket with a whistle oh and you need a captains hat so that if you do steer into trouble you throw the captains hat on someone else's head and look innocent

    Looking forward to days of sun so I can potter in the garden

  • I am longing to potter in the garden even if it is not very long. It is so stimulating pulling the occasional weed. I have great areas of bishops weed to contend with and its other name has just gone whizzzing out of my head. I used to be really good at names in the garden now I stand and hum and ha trying to get my brain to open the right file. Frustrating of course but still my passion........... dont do to much xgins

  • Sounds wonderful. We had a fabulous boating holiday on the Thames a few years ago - never more than 20 miles from home, pouring rain for 2 out of 7 days, but really relaxing. I'm sure you'll really enjoy it. And as captain, you can just get everyone else swabbing the decks, and hoisting the mainsail - or whatever else needs to be done! Don't forget the rum ration! Save the ships biscuit as an emergency anchor. :-/

  • I have ordered some ships rations they will be surprised it is mostly red wine:) xgins

  • Grabs large glass and joins gins :)

    It's sunny in Southampton, too - we had a heavy rainstorm in the night, but now the sun is shining and it looks a bit steamy out there. I managed a stroll in the park yesterday, and the sunshine and flowers were a real tonic.

    Hope everyone has a sunny, happy day!
