Afternoon. Drizzle.

Mr D. - As usual with bank managers your man was being economical with the truth. Such an arrangement could certainly be set up.

But he didn't mention what the fees would be, did he?? They would have been in the small print somewhere.....

Afternoon all,

warmer again after a brief wet spell. UK friends have left for Britain again and took their weather with them.

After pasta for lunch now contemplating whether to have pizza for dinner. Considering the weight one gained over the last few months it would have been better to not have anything to eat at all today...

Odyssey. Mrs SSK's childhood pal takes Eurostar from London. We drive 40 minutes to Calais to meet and greet at 9 in the morning. Train comes, goes, no sign of girlfriend. After an hour hanging around we give up and head home. On the way, text message - she fell asleep on the train and is now in Brussels, armed with a (free) return ticket to Calais, arriving about 2. There is no way Mrs SSK is going to drive back there, she is knocked out through the early start and the stress. I can't/won't get back to Calais under my own steam but I'm willing to train to Lille to meet up with her there. Which I do. I and she finally arrive home six hours later than planned, both of us having covered considerably more territory than we intended.

If you must point a finger at Espana it must be at them northern expats shack 37 and OFSO. They have monopolised the rain in Spain for
several months.
Wot? Hasn´t rained here for almost two days

The game of poohsticks first appeared in A. A. Milne’s classic children’s story The House at Pooh Corner in 1928. It involves participants dropping sticks over one side of a bridge and walking over to the other side to see which one appears first.
It was voted one of the nation’s most popular traditional games in a poll of 2,000 parents, with a quarter naming it as their favourite behind hide and seek and ‘It’.

Another day, another dose of grey and wet.
Must have been a windy night as lots of windfall from the apple tree.
The blackbirds and thrushes will like that.

For several days I have been considering constructing an Ark. However, on reflection, it probably will not be needed as the children go back to school soon and the weather will doubtless change for the better.

That's very true Mr D.
My both is at the end of the first week of October and the weather leading up to it is usually pretty good.
Fortune shines up the righteous and all that.

Morning. Intermittent heavy rain.

I always recall my dad (a teacher) saying that you could guarantee a lovely period of sunshine immediately after the schools go back in the first week of September. Good rule of thumb that has proved to be.

A number of Dutch peoples' plans for a peaceful holiday after the schools have gone back have been ruined when a caravan storage site went up in flames. Some 500 tin-tents destroyed
