Temp here at the weekend expected to reach 35 C I'm told. Unfortunately I'm off to Kent.

The on again / off again relationship of the last years seems to have finally augered in last night. I'm getting too old for the chase. Time to sit back and let them come to me.

That's why English pubs have umbrellas.

Say that tomorrow when the storms hit us. I'm sure that "revenge will be sweet" when you have half decent weather and we're swimming everywhere.

A Dutch restaurant/bar down by the lake not too far from Cappelle, complete with umbrellas.
One of my favourite places btw.

Isn't modern technology wonderful? Fridges that connect you to the internet, mobile phones that take photos and now digital cameras that will cook dinner for you!

Rain heading this way by the looks of it . Haircuts done, first barber had a power cut so went to the old village barber I used to use, walked in and was immediately greeted by name after 10 years!

Sorry to hear that Lon, I am sure that once it is known the fillies will be flocking to your door.

To be honest I'm not particularly worried. Life will be a lot less complicated, and no unreasonable demands made upon my body in the middle of the night.

Hang in there L@ser. Any idea of when the appointment will be?

Scorchio here (though I don't know what the forecast is). Of course, I'm stuck in the office unenthusiastically trying to draft arbitration submissions (about - wait for it - a shipment of degummed soyabean oil - oh the glamour). Thoughts firmly fixed on a large glass of vino bianco in the garden ce soir.

How does one go shopping on Alderney? How many shops are there?
Surprisingly there are quite a few. I'd guess the resident population is about 1600 +. There are about three or four little supermarkets. One stocks some Tesco's stuff and another stocks some Waitrose stuff. There is another which does a lot of frozen goods (needed I'm guessing if the cargo ship gets delayed and can't dock through weather). It takes a little getting used to but this morning for example the fresh fruit and veg. was looking a little tired and then I remembered the ship the 'Valiant' is due this afternoon with fresh supplies. It has been a busy time here with Alderney week and they estimate about an extra 2000 people visiting the island. As a consequence there was no fresh Alderney milk to be had whilst we were out food shopping this morning and we were told a new batch will be in later this afternoon. We're learning where various supplies are to be had and the people are absolutely brilliant. We now know that the best place for toliet paper and kitchen rolls along with dishwasher tablets and soap powder is at the fishmonger (he has a little room tucked away at the back of his shop, not that this is apparent from outside).
Another example of how people behave here was illustrated yesterday morning. SWMBO lost an enamel brooch of a Newfoundland at the dog show last week, she was quite upset especially after losing 'Chance', but a total stranger came up to us in the high street yesterday and asked SWMBO if she was the lady who had lost the brooch and then handed it over, SWMBO was thrilled to get it back, somebody had found it and handed it in to one of the organisers of Alderney Week. Everybody helps each other out when and where they can and this was one of the reasons why we moved here, people have time for each other and look out for all.
It is taking some adjustment driving here as the 'rules of the road' have been thrown out the window and everybody stops for each other to let each other through, you have to watch if following another car as it might just stop even though it has right of way to let an oncoming car through, this is always done accompanied by a single finger waggle through the windscreen, indicating 'thank you'.

I wish I'd known about all this sooner. If I ever find myself single again, I will rush out and buy a daft hat. Perhaps Lon More's lady friend needs a refresher course!

Unfortunately not, but hopefully soon. A phone call may have to be made to the nurse I saw at Salford Royal.

Very windy here but not too much rain thankfully.

Angry

[Rant]Grrr! Just had one of those cold calls telling me that someone in the household had a minor accident and may be able to claim compensation.
"When?" I asked.
"Sometime after 2009" was the reply.
"When exactly?"
"We don't have those details." (Oh really?)
"Which car?"
"We don't have those details." (What a surprise.)
"Really? You are telling me great big fibs."
"No I'm not."
"You are telling me great big fibs."
"No I'm not."
"Yes you are." End of conversation as phone was slammed down at the caller's end.
How can I be so certain of my facts? Because I am the only person here and my vehicle has NOT been involved in an accident. These calls make my blood boil. I didn't raise my voice at all but made it perfectly clear that the caller's tactics were not appreciated.[/RANT]
Edited for spelling.

According to my weather station we've had 16mm of rain in the last hour or so

That I can quite believe as the road was briefly flooded from side to side (and it's on a noticeable downslope along its length) and the foul water drains are sufficiently overloaded that my loos are making loud gurgling noises

I think I'm going to be bailing out the Rifle Club tonight...again
