Morning . . . . again! Got up when the lovely guys working in the car park museum fired up the bulldozer at 7:30 They've also got this naff security thing set up in their compound, detects anyone near it, trouble is also detects anyone nearby walking their dog! Sounds an alarm (same as the red alert alarm in the original Star Trek ) then a recorded message telling anyone to bugr off or words to that effect. Really gets on your wick after you've heard it for the umpteenth time that day

Dry at the moment, well when I say dry its not raining just now. Supposed to stay dry(ish) until early afternoon then thundery showers for the rest of the day.

Freezer cleaning when I work myself up to it. Defrosted the chest freezer in the garage yesterday so got that to clean out.

Can't be any greener than a new boating fan can it? Enjoy the rain.

Got the two back lawns mowed & harvested another bucket of taters before the rains started right on forecast, No thunder as such yet though.

Ah . . . . that's why the rain hadn't started again yet, it was waiting for me to go out. In the middle of filling the bird feeders and the heavens opened.

Evening all, hoping everyone's well. Rained a bit round my area today, enough to be able to smell it on the pavement which is nice as I love that smell. Hoping for a proper thunderstorm soon, as yesterday my laptop kept telling me there were going to be some, but clearly not round here!
