    Sitting outside with the radio and a cup of tea sounds an excellent idea.
    Yes, it may be a little while to recover from Saturdays mishap ... sending good wishes to you.

    Woke up earlier to some lovely sunshine, long may it last  sunny

    All the best Jan

    MORE rain, thunder, wind and general gloom. Even when the sun comes out I don't trust it. Yeah I can't decide if it's been more like March or October. At least the first half of the harvest is in, haven't yet checked on the yields or prices but it looks like the wheat isn't going to go so well.

    Driving through a Hampshire village earlier today we saw some Morris Dancers ... I know not everyone seems to like this ... but it did add a festive air. The beer festival, which was being run close by was proving popular, and no we didn't stop and sample any ...

    The sunshine was a welcome sight today, although the breeze was still a little cool.

    All the best Jan

    Well at least the house is less full of flies now the manure piles are being ploughed in.

    Spent a little time with family again recently, which was lovely ...

    We ended up playing fun golf with three of the grandchildren and had a brilliant time - who said there was any cheating going on with our youngest grandson, LOL!
    At five years old he did very well and keeping score was very important!

    He really likes dinosaurs and his knowledge is amazing. Grandma did you know?
    When Grandad asked him did he learn all about dinosaurs at school, he replied 'no You Tube'  Smile

    We were fortunate with the weather we chose a nice sunny day, good job it wasn't yesterday we had a lot of rain.

    Shame to think summer days are dwindling, the nights seem to be drawing in that much faster now.

    It's the eclipse on Monday, we should be able to see the partial one here in the UK but in the US many will experience a total eclipse.

    Have a good weekend, whatever your plans

    All the best Jan

    I went out a few nights looking for meteors, saw a few but not nearly as many as in some previous years. A giant moth about the size of a Spitfire flew past, one or other Hawk Moth, which sometimes come in the house. In fact not so many moths of any kind in the house though there are about the usual quantity outside, and sometimes beating themselves against the kitchen window when the light is on. I can identify most birds and flowers (though I often need some prompting as I tend to forget more things from one year to the next) and quite a lot of butterflies, but my brain filled up and moths pretty much defeated me. And as for beetles, let's just not go there!

    Flies are finally diminishing. They brought back memories of my Aunt who kept chickens and turkeys on her farm and who had fly papers - the old fashioned sticky brown paper kind - hanging from every light fitting in summer.

    Alan was out desperately combining all night down the valley until the rains finally came in the early hours. Meanwhile the back field was glyphosated after all the barley volunteers germinated and yesterday the contractors came in and spread fertiliser, cultivated the stubbles again and sowed what I assume is going to be rape.

    I've been out for some not-walks several times after the shopping, when a rainstorm has suddenly blown up and eclipsed the sun.

    What is it with kids and dinosaurs? I was also fascinated by them when I was young, and most of the other kids had their dinosaur books, and I seem to remember collectors' cards, did they come with tea or breakfast cereal?
