Caroline, well done with beating OH at Scrabble! Tomatoes with every meal sounds great to me, I love tomatoes. Hope things have gone well for the little one at school.

Mowsehowse, sorry to hear you were on a downer. I think we all have the feeling that this has gone on longer than we originally expected, back in March it seemed likely that we'd be pretty much back to normal (not 'new normal'). People who don't social distance just make things worse. There doesn't seem t be any logic in the current regulations although someone has said in another thread that people in bars and restaurants can be policed but people in gardens can't. I suppose there's some sense in that but it is leaving it to trust with personal get togethers. If all those idiots hadn't congregated in throngs we wouldn't be in this position.  >:(
I had to Google the butterfly you mention, I hadn't heard of it. Lovely.

Viktoria, you're certainly going to be busy with all the bulb planting and painting. Good to hear that your son in law will pick you up at Christmas, hope things are calmer all round by then.

Louisa Maud, hope you enjoyed your holiday despite the nightmare journey home.

Yes thank you I did enjoy my break, was a quick break away to see my twin brother, hadn't seen him for , I  thought 3 years, he said 2 and time passes by and I didn't want if to be to late if you see what I mean ,

I think we are all getting  down times, it isn't easy, I feel for people,totally on their own who can't get out, so  I count  my blessings as it were

I am the oldest  by 2 hours spanning  midnight, don't need to remind him I am the oldest but he addresses me by B1  and I call him B2 when we write or text, B being the first letter of our Christian names,  all good fun, we got on very well as children.

Late again!

Went over to my sisters late afternoon for a Sunday Roast - friend J also invited.   Had a lovely get together and the roast was beautiful followed by apple and blackberry crumble and custard.

With the nights pulling in now it was pitch black when I got home around 9pm.   I'd taken my knitting with me only to discover when I got home that I'd made a mistake so ended up undoing about 8 rows which I wasn't best pleased about.   Sorted it out and now back on course.

After sorting the knitting just watched some tv (can't remember what though) and checked Facebook and Rootschat and then to bed.

Visit to recycling centre on Monday - wonder how that will pan out.

Lovely to hear of visits ,and tiddler at school Caroline .
After a week every day Flash Harry was a bit tired and somewhat “ fragile “
but the teacher said they mostly were ,being at home so much ,no playgroups etc.
Let us know how your little one went on.
I always thought I was a twin, you know when Mum was cross ,someone who reeeeeeely understood me!

I too love tomatoes ,but, then the gout starts!
So ration myself and tomato dishes like spag Bol and chilli ,butter bean casserole etc have to be far apart.
Oh undoing knitting!what a shame, what are you knitting?

Yes, Charities on TV ,in the post etc, I have a standing orders for MacMillan
and Alzheimer’s, Bury Hospice , RNIB’ Red Cross and Dogs’Trust.
Thinking I would not feel  so guilty ,but they keep sending raffle tickets etc .
Some of the charities on TV are new to me.

Well Kier Starmer has to self isolate ,family member positive.
The guidelines/rules are so mixed ,no wonder people are giving up.
Perhaps if we were warned Christmas will be cancelled unless everybody sticks to rules and guidelines ,the idiots might pay heed!

Well, just off to make a cup of tea,have got Lady Grey ,like the orange zest in it.Earl Grey has no flavour nowadays .
Goodnight all,and a good day tomorrow.

My Viktoria you're going to be busy with bulb planting and painting!
I've not heard how my youngest got on today but will be speaking to daughter tomorrow so will let you know.... assuming she managed to get him up! Apparently he runs all the way, been going daily as his brother in yr 3 now so at least used to the school and its lay out etc... been thinking about him today bless him!

Louisa M glad to hear you managed too get to see your twin brother... my what a tortuous journey though... it's often a bottle neck on that A303 even though they've re routed to Stonehenge! We travel that way to visit friends... well in the days we could... and I always hate it.... I remember when you could just park near the stones and walk amongst them not like today where you're miles away from them!...

Good to hear you had a good time Annette... it's a pain having to undo knitting... I'm always doing it especially while watching tv and not putting light on that's above my head!

Caroline
Stonehenge was no bother at all which is unusual, my daughter and son in law, mad things,  regularly go to Cornwall to surf and she always by passes S H, we didn't but might try it if we go that way next time

Our granddaughter is coming for brunch before she drives herself to Sheffield University, something else for me to worry about with the roads and drivers as they sometimes are, we saw a few idiots last weekend

Looks to be another nice day so we have to make the most of what summer time is left, mornings and evenings drawing in now.

Enjoy your day folks and stay  safe
