Kelly: Lol, Christmas talk already! You two must be mad, lol. Looks like the lovely weather we've been having is gonna break up - hardly any sun today and it's close and sticky. Had rain last night which cooled things down a little. Jun 10, 2016 12:14:28 GMT
juliebookworm: at least the garden's getting watered kelly-one job crossed off list. Jun 10, 2016 15:38:54 GMT

juliebookworm: lol our garden is now the same kelly -i've been watching the birds use our little bird bath though the rain we've had here last two days has been awfully heavy its a wonder the baby birds can fly. Jun 16, 2016 15:19:48 GMT
lynie: hi all hope some of you have sunshine. its the start of the hoppings at town a big fun fair which means two weeks of rain for me lol :) Jun 16, 2016 19:42:05 GMT

juliebookworm: hello Kelly well its been dark here most the day but thankfully no rain as yet.The dogs are getting a bit restless now which usually means thunder or heavy rain so we'll see.not really summer is it! Jul 11, 2016 20:44:02 GMT
Kelly: I think we had some thunderstorms around last night as we had two power cuts. My fella wasn't very happy as he was playing a video game and it cut out half way through a level,so he wasn't too chuffed about it, lol.It doesn't bother my two dogs thankfully. Jul 13, 2016 8:28:17 GMT
