Still counting

 

              

Miserable day out there ,its raining ,but then we cant have sunshine all the time and they tell us we desperately need the rain, A nice cheery Easter graphic ,thankyou to xxroxy momaxx,I planned to be earlier than this, but journals were unavailable for a time so ,I got caught up ringing an old friend from the 'court 'so as, we hadnt spoken for some time ,we had a good old natter .

Thank you to all of you who,commented on the fire surround .Maurice read the entry,with pride as well he should ,hes done a brilliant job,(and the smell of the paint is fading now !!)and to all of you who want to borrow him ! can you manage just a bit longer ,I still have some jobs for him !he bought me a lovely Roman blind for the study here ,its beige corderoy,will go with the rug,that needs to be fitted (the blind not the rug)  ,and there are a couple more jobs to be done ,to say nothing of our grass,every time he says hes going to cut it ,it rains ,I dread to think what he will find when the mower does come out,lions and tigers maybe ! He is planning to change that area of the garden anyway ,we have decking he put in out side the patio door last summer ,the plan is a slabbed area I think ,I am so lucky he is so handy,arent I? He doesnt get a lot of time ,working shifts .

    

Oh its stopped raining ,I will go and persuade Scooby to go out ,he hates the wet weather ,he likes it best when the door can be left open and he can wander in and out ,and keep checking where I am ,He will usually sit here by me when I'm on the computer ,or if we are in the kitchen or lounge (he might be fast asleep )and then the ping of an alert comes through ,he gets up and makes his way through to the study ! you can imagine on a good day when lots of alerts come pinging through ,he gets lots of exercise .And last thing at night ,when we have gone off line Maurice will sometimes play solitaire,with the dog beside him ,when Maurice has finished,and turning off the computer ,that jingle indicates its closing down ,Scooby ,sighs and makes for his bed!

 

I did plan to clean the windows today ,but I guess the unreliable showers put paid to that (any excuse lol)so I will go and find something else useful to do ,to justify my existance !Have a good day all of you with love 

                                  

Thanks for these Jean , Ihad to put each letter in seperately good A?xxxxx

Miserable day here as well but no actual rain.  Mike cut our grass too days ago, not that it was too bad.  Who knows what you might find when Maurice cuts yours, if is a lot of money then please send some my way!!!!

Love the graphics. our grass has been cut several times already. That is so cute about Scooby learning things by the sound of the computer. Our Jake used to get up and go into another room where he had a bed when AOL gave the goodbye at night and we started to shut down the pc. Have a nice day. Helen

Hi Jan.  Thank you so much for visiting my journal.  Graphics there are ALWAYS snaggable.  I'm so glad you liked the train.  It took some work.  Lovely journal you have as well.  Will put you on alerts and come back to read about you when I have a few minutes.  : )  GBU, Shelly

Love the graphic of the train ~ think we are all having miserable weather at the moment ~ laughed at Scooby not liking to go out in the rain ~ It was good the journals being off line this morning gave you a chance to catch up with an old friend ~ I wouldn't let Maurice out of your sight Jan you may not get him back lol ~ Ally

Lovely cheery entry today really enjoyed and the graphics are great you are clever. We are hoping to get the grass cut this week too as it has now started to grow but we had very heavy rain overnight and first thing although it turn out a lovely day temp up to a lovely 12 degrees.  Love Joan.

Nice to know you don't let the rain get you down Jan. I sometimes enjoy working in the rain, not when it's cold as well though.
The fireplace looks great. It must be nice to be clever with DIY. I just muddle through with a lot of help from friends. Costs me a fortune in beer but at least my hands stay soft, lol.

Jan,

How cute that your dog runs to the computer, everytime he hears the ping of an alert!  My chihuahua could care less!  Well, could be because I don't always have my sound turned up!  She does sit up and take notice when people sign on to their computers and some of them make sounds like, dogs barking, or birds chirping... she will perk up a bit then!

Hope your weather clears up, so your SO can get your lawn done!

Have a great day, Jan!

Jackie

We are having the same problem with our lawn, if we don't get it done soon I shall have to hire in something heavy duty to deal with it.

How lovely to have a husband who is handy, poor Mike never knows which end of the screwdriver he's supposed to use to hit a nail in. Lol.

Hi there Jan - found me compass at long last! Am going to put you on alerts, daresay I'll be asked to register a wireless device when you make another entry. Our garden is too wet to do anything at the moment, we are on heavy, sticky, clay.
Keep laughing.

Hello there! I thought I had sent a message yesterday but maybe not. I do read your journal regularly but I do not always have time to add comments. Once the kids have all gone home I will not be so busy. Sorry anyway as I do enjoy your constant comments and encouragement. Your man sounds wonderful...are there anymore like him at home!? Love Conniex
