Good afternoon, I looked at the date of my last entry and can hardly believe it is over a week since my last offering. There has not been much happening in this neck of the woods like most of you we have had rain rain and more rain. Today has been a lot better sunny but cold, much nicer.

We have been tying all month that is since Stuart recovered from all his ails to get to Edinburgh, as there is an exhibition of Turner Watercolours on at the National Gallery that Stuart is longing to see we tried last year but the weather was so bad and at that time we had to walk to the bus as there is nowhere to park at the bus stop but now we have the new park and ride we can take the car round and sit in it till the bus appears the last time it was half an hour late sot the car is very handy. Turner usually paint in oils and these watercolours are very special, they were gifted to the gallery on the condition that they would only be shown once and year in the month of January when the outside light would not fade there delicate colours so its January or never till next year. We are going to try on Monday so here’s hoping but they keep changing the forecast.

Have updated my books journal if you care to click over so until next time. Love

Hiya, it is an awful day here today...wet and miserable!!!! A friend of our family was (not sure if he still is) in charge of something or other ....think it is the art the museum in Edinburgh, think he may be retired now but I know he was there at some point. Hope you get there on Monday!

I do hope you manage your trip to the gallery Joan, I`d like to see that too. The weather is still very wet and far too mild for the time of year. A nice, sharp frost is what we need at the moment.

Love Sandra xxxx

Hi Joan,

I hope the weather is fine for you to see the Turner Exhibition at the National Gallery in Edinburgh.  It will be disappointing if you have to wait until next January.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you."
