Lilies are opening, in the rain!
Afternoon all from a changeable Suffolk. I had a lovely weekend as my Daughter and her 2 girls - Seraphina and Luna came to stay on Friday. We had lots of fun on the beaches at Aldeburgh, Dunwich and Sizewell. Friday was very hot,Saturday very windy and cloudy in parts and this morning a mix of everything. They have left now for the 3 hour drive back to Silverstone in Northamptonshire.
I still have not seen my Son and his family since end of February so hoping we can meet up next weekend now the regulations have changed. We will be ultra careful still and like everywhere, today on the beach there was a huge family gathering of perhaps 30 people with distancing at all. We waked some way away where it was empty.
I am waiting to hear if my Furlough ends this month - but given my age I am hoping that It can carry on for a bit longer. Our building had a variety of different business in in and we share Toilets and Kitchen so I'm in no hurry.
I hope everyone has a good week and the weather improves. The sky here has gone very dark and the wind is getting up so I expect rain or a storm.
Hareday: What a nice get together with Seraphina, Luna.and daughter. Hope you can get together with son and family and that the weather is nice enough for the beach.
Heather: Interesting about hair lengths - I got the same feedback from my granddaughter during AZ visit and plan to follow her advice. :-)
Wendyb: I know there was some financial help for so-called independent contractors but I suspect they had to jump through all kinds of hoops to get it. I'll find out Tuesday if my lady got any but I suspect it wasn't enough to make up for her normal income.
Stay well all.
OG: I see you snuck in while I was prattling away. New kitchen sounds exciting. Do you have any 'house makeover' programs on TV? Great sources for ideas that you can downscale according to needs, etc. Oh and congrats on good feedback from the congregation!
Just received this - apparently Rosie loves yogurt!!!
OG what fun designing a new kitchen... I hope it works out. Very wet until about 5 the garden loved it dogs and husband didn’t . I woke up feeling quite unwell I am putting it down to tiredness brought on by heat old age 2 dog walks a day and gardening Went back to bed after the 3 had breakfast and slept till early pm. OH has been working and doing garden project so it was good to have a rest. Once that’s finished ( edging) next project sorted. My double length beach hut needs 2 sides redone as they have taken a battering over the last 3 years. So I have ordered paint, brushes and sanding discs for electric sander. Spoke to eldest who is chuckling as she lives on the River Wye the English side. The pub in her little village opens next Saturday but the one a short walk across the bridge is in Wales with no date planned
