I have sharpened my head; done the food shopping; did a few little odd jobs; had lunch...and am now sat down just about to read some of the Sunday newspaper before watching cricket on the telly. BBQ later: salmon for Mrs GMJ and merguez for me


Might possibly be a cold beer or two from around 3.30 as well (it's normally 4 but it's quite hot at the moment so an early dart is required) :)

We sat outside to eat Pizza tonight and watched a YouTube video about expensive motorhomes, by the time the video finished it was dark, switched on the outside lighting the table was black with ants, our plates and beer bottles were still on the table covered in them, that was obviously what they came for. I sprayed them with fly killer, they didn’t like that, most of them didn’t move again, but the tray with plates on is still outside in case they are lurking underneath. There are probably a few ant nests out there, the trouble is finding them all. My dried lemons do keep most out of the house.

Morning

Nothing planned today as we have to stay in as our new sofas are being delivered this morning. Looks like the weather had turned as we have had rain overnight.

Adverts all over for the "Fete de Port" at our town Portbail. Apart from the usual food vendors it's dead. Dozens of campers parked up overnight on all parking areas and I'm sure thousands will be just milling about until the fireworks tonight.
I did note the dustmen were out collecting the bins and it's a 'bank' holiday here.

The sofas have arrived!

The delivery blokes left home at 2.00am to get here for around 10-ish. They did get their heads down for an hour at a services en route. They have 3 more drops today: Llanelli, Cardiff and Hereford and are hoping to get back home tonight!

And where for them is home Graham?

One bloke lives in Barnsley and went to Doncaster to pick the other one up. They had a kip at Tamworth services on the way.

Nice fellas. Very efficient. I slipped them a few quid for their troubles.

Sitting in the lounge with the fan on full pelt and glanced out of the window to see 4 storks circling, they may be waiting for others to join ready for their journey to Africa, they will be leaving us within the next few weeks.

Morning all
well it's safe to say that the weather certainly broke here yesterday. We had a huge thunder storm in the evening and torrential rain for a good while. Hopefully it has taken a load of the mugginess out of the air for today.

We are off into Carmarthen today. Mrs GMJ has 2 appointments but they are at 11.00 and at 3.00, so we'll have to keep ourselves amused for the several hours in between as I don't fancy driving back home and going back out again for the second appointment.

Hair cut this afternoon. Our gates came back from the sand blasters and paint shop yesterday. Chris is supposed to be fixing them in place. As this involves digging a hole in rock hard ground I am feeling anxious. I don't think it has to be too deep as one post can fit to the bungalow wall and the other to the existing fence. Georgia is finding a way to escape and we think it is the make shift gates that are the weak spot so it is a fairly urgent job. She goes flushing in the next door field, we presume, and then comes home and jumps in the pond! Smelly pond water is not a desirable addition to the house :(

Dermo Doc found another anomaly on my same leg as the melanoma 2019 this am and dug out a biopsy immediately. Now awaiting lab results, all stitched up.

Morning all

Yesterday I bought some blackout material, elastic and velcro as I am going to make a prototype external cover for the windows in our motohome. I'll just make one to start with and see how it goes. The idea being - and I'm sure that I saw them on a thread on here - that it will allow the windows to be kept open in the MH when sunny to allow breeze through but will keep the sun out.

After that the cricket starts today: England v SA First Test, so I'll be watching that....weather permitting.

Does your telly not like the rain then Graham :D

Nothing much on today. It got quite busy yesterday as Georgia was licking at her foot with great gusto and I could not see what was causing it. Off to the vet as her booster was due anyway. I already knew that she had luxating patellas (slipping kneecaps) as a dog physio had told me. Georgia's slip out laterally which is very unusual. Vet has recommended, now, that we get them operated on as the left side was staying out of its socket :( That means a referral to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon. Thank God for pet insurance.
Chris has done an amazing job on fitting the gates. I had warned him to use brain not brawn and it looked like he had listened :). He used a drill thingy to break up the ground where necessary. They are fixed to the house wall one side and an existing fence post the other so not much in the way of digging anyway. Not quite finished, yet, as need some adjustment but look lovely.
