Good Afternoon, as I am writing this we are in the  middle of a squall heavy rain and very windy by the time I get finished I think the sun will be out again. I has been a very windy morning here on Tayside the very large tree out the back of our house is just about taking off as it is in full leaf and is catching the wind it is about 60ft high and very old I hope nothing happens to it as I love this tree. Must take a picture of it to show you sometime.
You will all be thrilled to know that I have completed my Tomb Raider Last Revelations game it has taken me ages but I got there in the end. Am not planning to start anything else serious before I go away on holiday. With me just having a Play Station 1 it is difficult to get game for it now.
I started a new book last night I choose a James Patterson as I thought it would be easy and quick to read this week because I have books earmarked for holiday reading if I get the chance depending on the weather and what birds are there to temp us.
Stuart still not great with his Shingles but still no rash strange on this.
The photo's I have posted today were taken yesterday just to give you an idea of what's out in bloom just now.
I think that's about it for today trying to get Stuart to go up to the loft for the suitcases so I can start getting things ready.
Noticed that Dalzeil and Pascoe are back tonight like that and of course New Tricks tomorrow is well worth a watch. Well I will go now and hope you all have a lovely day. Love,


PS.That's the sun out again.  Sorry no pictures today AOL as usual is not letting me load them will try later.   Joan.

when I got shingles the pain was there a week before the rash so the doctor didn't know what was wrong with me... finally figured it out and it lasted a month or so. Since it is Stuarts 2nd time I hope it is a very mild case. Hope your sun is shinning now, Sandra

It's not raining here yet today, but we do need it very badly.  It's quite cloudy though so we might be in luck!  I have a playstation 1 as well.  I haven't been able to master any of the games yet!  But I keep trying!  It's great fun!  My mom had shingles once and they were quite painful.  I do hopt Stuart's don't cause him too much pain.

Hello Joan,  It looks as though the wet weather is on it`s way here now. We do need some rain badly and I`ve had enough of watering the garden this early in the year.  I hope Stuart feels better soon and is well for your holiday. I doubt I`ll be able to watch Dalziel and Pascoe as Jim is watching a Queen concert so I`ll have to wait for New Tricks tomorrow night. :o)

Love Sandra xxxx

Hey Joan,  thanks for the nice comments left in my journal.   Enjoyed your photos from yesterday.  What a amusing tree that monkey puzzle tree is, never had seen one before.  Hope Stuart feels better soon.         Dawn

Typical AOL not letting us see your pics :(  Hope Stuarts shingles clear up before you go away.  Well done for completing tomb raider.  You should get yourself a playstation 2 coz you can play games for the 1 and 2 console on there :-)

Just keep trying with adding pics Joan! I keep clicking the add pictures and sometimes it comes up saying they can't find the URL ten times before they finally decide to stop messing and let me add pics! Perseverance pays off! Have a great holiday! See you when you get back! Jeannette xx
