Welcome to CraftBubble's online Chat Room
juliebookworm: at least the garden's getting watered kelly-one job crossed off list. Jun 10, 2016 10:38:54 GMT
Kelly: I don't know about the plants begin watered Julie, all this rain and my back garden looks like a swimming pool again! Anyone fancy a dip, lol. Hissing it down again today too {sigh} - where's the sunshine gone to.... Jun 14, 2016 1:44:05 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 10:19:48 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 14:42:05 GMT
Kelly: Well the weather here is all mixed up, but managed a nice walk with the woofies without getting wet. Gone really dark here now so looks like we're gonna get it again. Hope it's nicer where you are. Jul 11, 2016 10:15:51 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 15:44:02 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 3:28:17 GMT
lynie: oh i love thunder as long as im in the house. at the moment im trying to not look at much at the cute gas inspector lush just dosnt cover what im seeing right now. gizmo likes him as well. Jul 13, 2016 7:59:30 GMT
Kelly: It looks to be another scorcher here today - hope the weather is nice where you are. Did you have a nice weekend? Enjoy your week everyone. Jul 18, 2016 2:27:02 GMT
Kelly: Well to say it's August it's blooming chilly today! Hope you all have a great month ahead. Aug 8, 2016 4:35:17 GMT
juliebookworm: soggy Sunday here how's everyone else's weekend be.....washed out?? Aug 21, 2016 11:40:40 GMT
Kelly: We've had rain here too Julie and looks like more of the same for today too. Although it's still quite warm - Autumn's chill hasn't arrived yet but I'm sure September will bring the cooler weather with it, lol Aug 22, 2016 3:16:28 GMT
Kelly: Hate seeing those horrid ads on the forum so managed to get it sorted now. Best get cracking on, have a mountain of chores that need to be done today! Sept 1, 2016 2:57:18 GMT
Kelly: September already! Can't believe Christmas is so close. The nights are drawing in now too don't you think. Hope you all have a good month. Sept 2, 2016 3:25:42 GMT
juliebookworm: well now those dark nights here I'm real busy crafting or reading-I know should be in better weather but I find do to arthritis I tend to stay in the warm more so have more time on hands. Sept 10, 2016 12:12:28 GMT
Kelly: Likewise there Julie. I'm dreading the cold weather too, and like you I'll be where it's warm. I am starting to get some projects together to do in the afternoons, then of course my stitching in the evenings. I'm into felt projects at the mo'. Sept 12, 2016 2:03:40 GMT *
juliebookworm: can you believe were nearly halfway through this month already? It seem to be snowballing towards Christmas .no pun intended ! Sept 14, 2016 10:25:09 GMT
Kelly: Lol, Julie. It's foggy here this morning, a sure sign that Autumn is wanting to introduce itself although the weather is a little mixed here. Sept 15, 2016 2:09:25 GMT
juliebookworm: well October seems to have arrived with some awful weather -cold and very wet here. :-[ Oct 1, 2016 12:16:47 GMT
juliebookworm: I can't believe we're heading towards the last weekend of October where oh where has this month gone. Oct 26, 2016 10:32:32 GMT
