Trying times

What is with the weather? After the weekend, in which we went to London Zoo to visit Mac's meerkat (explanatory post to follow), and spent the day in T-shirts and quaffing ice-cream, I've spent today alternately freezing my feet off, getting drenched, jumping at the thunder claps and not going near any windows in case I got hit by lightening.

It's been a bit of a week this week - I've had a headache since Sunday evening - and it's set to get worse. Amelia is arriving tomorrow for a prolonged visit while her flat in the residential home is being redecorated. Everything is currently beige: walls, skirting boards, carpets - I asked her what colours she's chosen this time and she answered "Magnolia". The words "why are they bothering" spring to mind but still, it gives her the opportunity to visit, criticise my cleaning ability, comment on my whites and terrorise me from dawn to dusk.
So she's relatively happy.

Good luck. And yes, it's freezing in my bit of London too. I looked like Ken Dodd when I came out of the park with the dog this morning!

It's snowing over here NMOO. How bad can it be over there?

I'm looking forward to Amelia's visit. It provides the rest of us with a lot of hilarity when we get to read about it. (sorry)

Roserio, I looked like his tickling stick (but sadly not as skinny!)

Aims....we're wimps over here, one gust of wind and it's "gale force winds"!!!!

MH...the house is as clean as it's going to be before she descends!

I'm a mum of one, wife of one and owner to several dogs, a variety of breeds and sizes. I live in the up and coming area (or so they say) of Nunhead and have mad neighbours, strange friends and certifiable relatives. I shop locally, although I do defect to Sainsburys once a week - shoot me now local shopkeepers.
