I went with Irene to NE today, we had a walk round the park and the Castle, Emma had a little drink from the edge of the water, too rough for her to go in here, and then she duly posed for us to take photos. After we popped her back in the car, went along to one of the cafe's and had a spot of lunch (erm, don't mention the diet) Came back and had one of my cakes each and a cuppa (yes I made another batch of the sultana buns yesterday - don't ask - well let's just say they weren't as good as last weeks, and I thought I'd made them the same...)
I actually managed to get some washing dry outside for the first time since the end of last summer, I normally just can't be bothered to put any out though because it dries just as good in here overnight, and I don't end up slipping on my arse in the mud trying to get stuff on the line outside... Anyway, after Irene went I suddenly had a burst of energy and decided to have a go at cutting some of the grass, the front looked awful. So it had its first haircut since September too, but I only managed to do about half of it, the back is still too wet and I couldn't be bothered to get the extension lead out anyway. The ordinary lead reaches about half of the garden. I'd almost finished, when guess what - it started to rain! So I had to stop and grab the washing off the line, and then get the mower away. I was wondering actually if I could get a job in a country where they are desperate for rainfall, because I seem to have this knack. Even this morning, there wasn't a cloud in the sky, and as soon as I shut the machine with the washing in, grey clouds started to build..
Well I've been AWOL for a while due to my obsession with Celebrity Fame Academy. I have it on interactive virtually permanently, and have missed all my regular programmes, although these are all safely recorded on Sky+ for later viewing. I so love this show and wish they would bring back the proper Fame Academy. My favourite reality show of them all.
Oh well, enough for now, back to the telly!
The pic below needs enlarging to appreciate, although the quality isn't brill because it was only the Nokia, but look at Emma's face! Captions on a postcard...
