Another good week. Penny survived the camp out with Annabelle, we had a great couple of outings while she was here and the builders continue to make progress, albeit slowly with a few steps backwards from time to time, on the kitchen extension. We’ll be in by Christmas 2021 no problem! Continue reading
Another good week – decent enough weather, good progress on the building site and Annabelle is coming for a sleepover this evening. What’s not to like? Continue reading
Good week on the whole – we baby sat one of our favourite canine companions for an over-nighter while his parents were away, there’s been good progress on the building, we are close to a resolution of the Mystery of the Missing Medications, the Conservatives lost a by-election and now have a working majority of just one and, although we had some genuinely crappy weather in the early part of the week, the picture has steadily improved with some warm sunshine towards the end of the week. We must be grateful for small mercies. Continue reading
Scorcio! A blisteringly hot week with temperatures reaching 38o C (just over 100o F). Don’t worry folks, there’s nothing to see here – climate change is just fake news.
Oh, it’s been a busy, chaotic yet productive week in Moreton Pinkney. We survived the village fête, the plumber has been and carried out his first fix and the builders arrived on Wednesday to start the Great Break Through! We are now thoroughly covered in dust and look forward to spending the next couple of months in a similar state of messiness! Oh, the joy. Continue reading
Another decent week – what are the chances of that? A bit grey and muggy on a couple of days but reasonably sunny and warm otherwise. Long may it continue.
Having complained for weeks about our crappy weather I guess I must commend it when it proves to be delightful. So, just to set the record straight, we have had some gloriously sunny days over the past week with the occasional scorcher of a day thrown in. Lovely.
Short and sweet this week! Off to London this afternoon to see the second of the two Red Sox – Yankee games at the Olympic Stadium. Our dear friends Chip and Leca Boynton are with us, the weather has been marvellously co-operative, the kitchen extension is battened and felted ready for slating and we’ve even enjoyed a few meals al fresco. What a difference a few days can make. Continue reading
Quite a productive week in a couple of key areas even though the weather has continued to be less than magnificent. Longest day of the year yesterday so it’s all downhill from here.
What a miserable, miserable, miserable rainy week. The rain started almost the moment we walked through the door on our return from St Ives last week and I don’t think it’s relented for more than about ten minutes since. It is wet, wet, wet! Continue reading
