Wet Thursday.

                     

Good Morning, another we day today after yesterday I thought mistakenly that we had enough rain for this week.  The rain came on yesterday just as we were picking up Ellen from school and it lashed and better lashed till bedtime.  We travelled home down the motorway about 5-45 pm and it was so busy I could hardly believe it and the surface water was atrocious.  I was sitting in our in the kitchen giving her her tea and we were chatting and she said it won't be long till Christmas.  I asked her how do you know this Ellen have you been practising at school for your concert and she said no her words were 'Gran all the leaves are falling off the trees so it is Autumn and that mean it will soon be Christmas' I though that was very smart for a 5 year old.  Her reading is coming along a treat too as it was my turn for homework last night.  Not much doing here today will maybe play some games on the PC later after we have had lunch or perhaps watch a DVD.  The last time we watched a film in the afternoon we watched 'Master and Commander' with Russell Crowe it was great, real adventure stuff. That's me for today but just to say I have updated my Birdwatching Journal today with the lastest news of your intrepid birdwatchers.

I don't care for rainy days either but I guess they are necessary aren't they. Sounds like you had a good day in spite of it though. Sandra

Ellen is quite clever to associate autumn and winter with Christmas! I enjoyed Master and Commander too!! Wish I had time for afternoon viewing on occasion Joan. Lucky you!

Ellen is a very observant little girl to recognise Christmas follows Autumn when the leaves fall ~ bet it can't come quick enough for her ~ glad her reading is coming on well  ~ hope you will be getting some dry weather so you can get out and about ~ I hate driving in the rain ~ Ally
