Took the dog for a walk this morning, cool (21°) but warmer than the last few days, sunny all day.

About 2pm they all arrived from Sydney to reclaim the dog, after an hour peace and quiet returned and I was left alone again.

Jobs to do.

Have a good one.

Good Morning/Afternoon everyone,

Going to be hot again today - which must be lovely for those of you who like the heat,

I woke uo to find I had had a nose bleed during the night - hair stuck to pillow time!
Bed linen now in washing machine - pillow in wheelie bin - ordered new ones from DunElm.

Dinner will be Tuna Steak with new potatoes, carrots, leaks and Pinto beans - yes, I actally remembered to soak them over night!!

Have a fun day.

Morning all,

We’ll be making Catalan Honey Cake, this recipe calls for a considerable amount of olive oil, it produces a batter rather than the usual type of cake mix.
It really tastes good but this time we’ll be adding a liberal helping of lemon zest to counter the oiliness and add a little zing.

I certainly won’t be slapping on the Nivea and soaking up the rays…no chance!



Good morning forum. It’s v warm already here and with the twins up early, Sunday breakfast has been arranged for 8:30 and then the cover will be removed from the paddling pool :+1:

Don’t forget that screen cream folks, then you can enjoy the sun​:+1::wave:


Hello there!

It is quiet in our home at the moment, and I am reflecting on my goals and how side tracked they have been over the last few months.

I am still doing well with the exercise and training; down a few more pounds and moving everyday to the tune of 8-10k steps (about 15k on average this week). With regards to school, the Met Office has issued a red alert but our school - as per the guidance of our DfE - will remain open. It will be an interesting few days during our last week of term when half the students stay home.

Nonetheless, the reason for the reflection - I am currently studying part time while working full time, and I am feeling the fear of the thesis looming over me and the lack of work I have directed towards my studies.

I could create a new chat/discussion thread, but here is just fine for my needs right now.

I have the new school year looming and I can see that I will need to make some changes with the amount of work I am doing and probably reduce my days to complete my studies and finish on time.

Lots of thinking to do.

I will be doing an early morning shop and then will not leave my home for the duration of the day. Have lentils, potatoes/rice, veg and salad for lunch and a lemon cake all ready to be consumed throughout the day.

Have a great day everyone!

Good Morning All.

Not the best of nights, I have the dreaded stomach bug which is doing the rounds again.

Definitely hibernating for the next few days.

Enjoy the sun and your BBQS.


What is ‘rain’ ?


Sounds nasty - remember to keep up your fluid intake!

Good morning everyone :smiley: a lovely day here not too hot at the moment.
I was up at 5:30, showered, hair washed , work done I am waiting for my neighbours son to come and fit an outside tap. With my health problems I can no longer lift buckets of water to water the garden. Just hoping he does an ok job, he is a plumber but that is no guarantee.

Then a day of looking at mobile phones, I need a better one with Wifi because I am going to lose my landline when I have fibre broadband installed . I can no longer cope with .3 mbps and fibre is now £10 a month cheaper.

Morning all!

Temp is heating up again. I just realized that heat here is different than heat in the UK. 31 degrees C is nice weather for here.

I’ve been watching bits and pieces of the 24 hour masterclass. It’s been good. Still several hours left of it.

I hope to be talking to my favorite person on the phone again tomorrow. It was nice to be talking today. Had lots to catch up on.

Have a magnificent day everyone.

Just got to say susi j,s church photo looks lovely
