Warm!

Today is sunny and finally we have a warm breeze, even though it is due to change to a cold one tomorrow. The bedding has been stripped a day early and is now hanging out in the sunshine. The temperature in the house is currently 20C even though the heating (set at 14C) switched off about 8.00am.

Just pruned my autumn raspberries back as they too are starting to come into leaf, just tiny ones at the moment. Won't be long now before the fruit cage roof will need to go on otherwise the sparrows will be in there stripping the gooseberry buds.

We enjoyed our Chinese 'school' meal and watched a Peter Kay DVD and had a good laugh. Sorry, I forgot to take a photograph of the cloud cake and its lovely bramble and apple sauce but we finished it off before I remembered! Can't even find a picture of anything similar on the internet to show you either.

Anyway it was very nice, light and sweet 'cake', slightly tart sauce and just right to finish off a meal.

The boiler man has just come to service our boiler. We must have had it now around 25 years or so and it is still doing well. After a thorough clean, he usually changes the nozzle and it is done.

Have a lovely weekend folks and enjoy yourselves:)

  2. The sunshine continues in Essex too after a much colder night. The breeze is warmer and lots of things are slowly springing into life.

  3. Still have snow here, but it is melting slowly but surely. The sun is shining here as well, but the temperatures are still a little cool. Have a super weekend.

  4. I saw trees full of blossom today - two white and one pink in one front garden. They were beautiful, all frothy looking and full of promise. They brightened the gloom here as it has been a bit of a grey day. J went to see Peter Kay in the Phoenix Nights show in Manchester a couple of weeks ago. He went with K ( it was his birthday present) and they had a great time. Whilst on holiday last year we were told that we sound like Peter Kay, because clearly 'all Northeners sound the same'; whilst we do sound Northern, we really don't have Bolton accents!

    1. The one we watched was from 2000, he looked like a child. People think I sound Norfolk but I don't. If they heard a person from here they would tell the difference.
