Rainy Saturday.


Good Afternoon, Its not a very nice day for us today it has been raining it now and the sun may show up eventually. I am hoping to get out for a wee bit and put a new cover on my mini greenhouse so I can get some seedling out soon. I planted Cosmos three weeks ago and I would like to get them out to the mini greenhouse before we go on holiday as it is a bit warm for them on my sunny kitchen window.

We went out for our normal coffee this morning and the place was nearly deserted I think everybody must be saving their petrol/diesel just in case. I have noticed it has been very quiet traffic wise most of the week there seems to be fuel here as there were a few customers on the forecourt but no queue.

Stuart and I are getting a bit worried about our holiday we have 420 miles to travel it’s a long way there and just as far back again. We have enough petrol to get us well over the border and hope we can get filled up again south of Newcastle. Our cottage is already paid for and if we don’t get it’s a lot of money to lose.

Going to get the suitcases out of the loft and get started to pack not that everything is ready as the weather up here has been so bad this week I still have a few things that I have not had on yet this spring and would like to get them freshened up before we go.

Am going to take my laptop with me but I don’t know if I will be able to get a online connection while we are away but intend to keep a journal while we are away so I will put that in when we get back. I think that’s about it for today I see the sun is now shining so off to fix the greenhouse. Bye for now. Love all morning and rained most of the day yesterday. It does seem to be drying up a bye for now. Love

So far we are not having any problems here in the Lakes.  I filled up at Morrison's yesterday without a problem.   (Except the price!)  £1.07 a litre.  I beieve that is cheaper than most garages though.
We too have rain.  Hope your holiday fairs well for you and you have a lovely time.
I have my little seedlings out under cover.  I want to put them in the ground as they are getting leggy but our weather is so changeable I'm not sure if I should or not.

I hope you manage to get the petrol you need Joan. It's been a lovely hot sunny day here today, I had a great walk of five miles with no coat! Let's hope it'll stay like this for when you get down to England. I hope you managed to get the plants in the mini greenhouse. Have a great weekend! Jeannette xx

WE had lovely sunny weather here yesterday as well, sorry about your rain!  The petrol thing is a real worry.  I do hope that you have no problems with that as you go on your holiday.  Saying a little prayer to that end for you.  I hope you have a lovely time and return to us safe and sound and full of lovely stories to tell.
