Where is is everybody.....

                             

Good afternoon, am sitting here half watching the tennis and reading my alerts but I am wondering and worrying where everybody is, my mailbox is almost empty everyday and I am wondering if I am getting alerts. I am getting one ore two but none from some of my regular ladies. Have you all gone the same way as my beloved Weather Pixie she has ran off from my journal and I have checked other journals that have a pixie and she has ran away from them too wonder what has happened have they gone on holiday do you think? Up here we are not having any summer weather at all at the moment, June has been an awful month I hope that July is going to be better or summer will be gone and we will have missed it. After the wonderful weather we had in May I thought it was going to be such a good summer silly me.

We had a couple of outings last week one to St Andrews and one to Stirling on the bus. It was not such a good run this time there must have been some sort of breakdown and the bus company had put on what I would call a town bus meant for short journeys. By the time we got back my back was killing me hope its better next time.

Yesterday I headed out the front of the house to do a but of weeding armed with my trug, gloves and hand fork I had just started when the heavens opened so that was the end of that. I then came in made coffee and sat down to watch a film so weeding out the front is still needing done will get to it another day. Our schools came off for the summer holidays last Friday so that’s the end of the piece and quiet for seven weeks or so. We have a rented house two doors up from us and the guy who owns it will let it to anybody as he does not have to suffer the noise or disruption his tenants make. This time it’s the children, they have this giant trampoline in the garden and they scream every time they jump up and down and there can be three or four of them at a time on it at a time, and they are on it about 12 hours a day at the moment, it can become very annoying after a short time. It's not so bad for meI can switch off my two hearing aids and don’t hear a thing but Stuart and my other neighbours can’t but what can you do they are not the type you would dare complain too. Maybe it’s as well we have not had many days to sit out in our garden lately. Hope you are all well and look forward to hearing from you all soon. I think that’s about it for now so till next time. Off to watch the tennis now as Andy Murray will be on shortly fingers crossed. Love,

J-Land does seem really quiet lately Joan.  I am getting hardly any alerts as well.  I expect people are out and about enjoying summer weather and temps and gardens.  At least I hope that's what they are doing!  We have the local village primary school just down the hill at the end of the orchard behind us and it is lovely to hear the children at play during their break times on sunny days.  They will still be in down here for a few weeks longer before they go off on their summer hols . . . I always miss the noise when they do!

I'm wondering if the weather pixie just gave up after all the rain and cold we've had! Everyone says they aren't getting alerts; funny 'cos I seem to get them all still. I'm way behind but I try to get through some every day and still have over a hundred! I can't stand the sound of kids screaming, it's bad enough at work ~ at least I know it's because they aren't well there so I can sympathise. I try to avoid supermarkets in school holidays, shopping brings out the worst in kids! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

That's a shame and annoying about the kids on the trampoline.  Hope you do get some nice weather soon, but it's not looking so good huh
