|Auntie Glad's infamous scones|
The weather yesterday was truly atrocious. I ventured out only to look after the animals and to walk the dogs. Old Islwyn Thomas was the only villager I met when I was braving the rain in the morning....He cheerfully called out that he didn't think that we would have many entries for the flower show this year because of the wet.......apparently he says every year: a fact that Auntie Gladys reminded me of a little later when I was summonsed by telephone to collect the scones she had promised would be ready in the early evening
The weather was getting Gladys down somewhat as she has reported with some frustration that she has only sold 100 ticket books for the Flower Show raffle since Friday because of the blustery conditions!.....
the woman is bloody 92 for god's sake!
Anyhow,I spent the entire damp,day cleaning then painting the office, and below is a small taster of the "work in progress"
I will refrain from a "changing rooms" type reveal, until Chris returns home from Cambridge on Thursday (which is very restrained of me I think)
I think he should be the first to see his newly appointed custard yellow office!
I will leave my "thoughts for the day" with a final big up for cheerful village despot Jason who is taking part in the three peaks challenge on the 7th of July in aid of the Cancer Unit at our local hospital.
His "Just Giving" page can be seen at http://www.justgiving.com/Jason-Randa0
He'll have legs like over stretched elastic bands when he's finished!
Good luck matey
