Good Afternoon, as promised yesterday I am going to tell you all why Stuart is smiling. As you can see from the photo's we have purchased an new car. We have had our Focus for two and a half years and thought we would like to have a change. Stuart is a bit of a lad when it comes to cars I have lost count how many we have had in our married life some of these days I am going to sit down and count them all.This time we have gone for a slightly bigger car its a Ford C. Max Zetec its only 6 months old and is really nice and roomy. It sits a bit higher on the road than the Focus did so I can see over a lot of the hedges.
I was going to tell you about it yesterday but with the weather being so bad I could not get out to take a picture of it. We nipped out this morning to a layby and managed to get these. As you saw yesterday I have a very happy husband.
I started this entry about half an hour ago and then I went down to have lunch and hang out my washing. What a waste of time that was the heavens have just opened again and even with my bad hearing I can hear it thumping it down where is all this rain coming from I think we have all had our share this 'summer'.I have just had a look out of the window and the street is running like a river. When it eases off a bit I will have to rescue my washing and spin it all over again but that's it am not going to hang it out again today. You may see in picture three there is a giant golf ball or that's what it gets called here it was used during the cold war as some sort of surveillance equipment but we were always told it was a weather station. It is not in use anymore and it is to be sold. Anybody want to live in a golf ball?
Think that's about it for today hope you all have a great Sunday and if you have time watch or record 9 PM on BBC 1 for a wonderful program called 'Mountain' tonight its back in Scotland and should be worth a look as the other two, one from the far north of my country and the other was from the Lake District. The host is Griff Rhys Jones and he does all the climbing too it has been a great program can really recommend it. Bye for now,
