Just started raining n(Again) in East Sussex. :-(


SheilaWestWilts Report 13 Apr 2013 13:48

Yes, I'm having a rethink regards coats etc. Think I will get a really good waterproof and a warm down coat for next winter (although some of them are way too bulky, or too long) - very hard to get a coat just the right length :-D


'Emma' Report 13 Apr 2013 13:49

Anne hope you get your washing dry, blue sky
has gone here :-(

Don't worry Merlin it will be heading my way soon :-D


'Emma' Report 13 Apr 2013 13:50

Sheila by the time I get my coat on am ready for a lie down :-D

GlasgowLass Report 13 Apr 2013 14:55

Thankies Ann.
Washing is still out there
Still bright and sunny but it's much windier than I thought.
All the bath sheets keep curling round the line and a dress on a hanger is doing is own wee twirly dance


AnninGlos Report 13 Apr 2013 14:56

Sheila, trouble is you need a long wet weather coat for walking around and a shorter one for the car. Takes so long to get ready these days it is almost time to come home before we go out!!! :-D


'Emma' Report 13 Apr 2013 15:15

Lovely and cosy now and a nice cuppa would be
so nice :-D


SheilaWestWilts Report 13 Apr 2013 15:25

Lol GoldenGirl and Ann, I get swamped by 'big coats' so can't do the long ones. It's been raining all day here, even the dog doesn't want to go out in it!

My Westie is spark out in front of the fire :-D

I saw the smallest patch of blue sky earlier, when we were on our way to Canterbury, but now it is overcast with fine drizzle ...Not too cold though.
Lots of lambs in the fields.



'Emma' Report 13 Apr 2013 16:35

The only lambs I've seen this year so far are the ones
on TV.
It's lovely to see them in the fields. :-)



'Emma' Report 15 Apr 2013 14:34

It's a bootiful day here. Sun been shining since early
morning, windy but warm with it. We were out all
morning taking the advantage of the good weather.
Hope your day has been just as nice as mine :-D

ButtercupFields Report 15 Apr 2013 14:43

A bit dull here right now and the weather not so great either :-D


AnninGlos Report 15 Apr 2013 14:57

Very windy but warm, a lot of clouds scudding over but some sun as well, and I got the washing dry outside this morning.


GlasgowLass Report 15 Apr 2013 15:05

It's been soooo windy here that I'm quite scared.
Jan 2012 winds caused almost £5000 worth of damage to our garden
Our back garden is enclosed by sections of brick wall and equal sized sections of timber fencing
2 and a bit sections ( 6ft x6ft) of brick wall which encloses the garden, together with 4 sections of fence panels, simply blew over and fell onto the road behind the house
Strangely my neighbour next door had no damageat all.
Strange because his was already keeling over!
He had raised the level of his garden by placing breeze blocks behind his wall and the pressure is pushing it outwards
Since we had ours repaired and rebuilt straight, it simply highlighted just how much that his has moved .
That was over a year ago.....
Today, the council who own the road at the back, have sealed his garden off from the rear ( road included) and served notice on him to fix it!
The thing is.....It wasn't too noticeable BEFORE ours was repaired
Our repair bill was in excess of £4800 for the 3 ( 2 plus a bit) sections of brick wall.
He has 7 full sections of brick wall to demolish and rebuild and will not be covered by insurance..... WHOOPS!
