Yesterday it snowed and rained and hailed and sleeted and the wind howled, today the wind was still howling but precipitation largely limited itself to hail showers with blue skies and sunshine between times... I don't think I really understand British weather but at least it gives you something to talk about!!!

Today was otherwise busy, I was out early at Margaret's place and we went to Homebase to buy some iris coloured paint for our room in the rectory and then we delivered some resuscitation manikins back to their owner and stayed for coffee. Between the two we took a glimpse at the waterfront at West Kirby - this is what the marine lake was doing...it gives you some idea how strong the wind was today!!



Then I unsuccessfully tried to retrieve Christopher's mobile phone which he lost on Friday... still working on that one! After that it was back to Margaret's for a quick lunch before going to Alison's for our bible study. Now Matthew is out at Cell and Ian has gone to a prayer ministry meeting, and I'm looking forward to watching an episode of Lewis tonight.

I will also be spending most of tomorrow at home because I will be waiting for our new cooker to be delivered...but I have many plans...as well as cleaning behind the cooker (much needed) I want to print some images to make cards, I have some website stuff waiting for attention, a novel to read, some phone calls to make, some scanning of photos, the rest of the garage needs tidying, I'd quite like to paint too... guess I won't be bored!!

That water looks pretty rough and rugged. Did you say it's a lake?

Yeah, it sounds like you have plenty to do!
I have a school trip tomorrow with Asher and Finn's classes, all day. Then, well, then I'll be working my way towards Thursday.

It's a marine lake, sea, but protected, about 1 metre deep where we are looking... the waves were rising over a metre at times so that's quite impressive really! The weather is much calmer here today!

I've cleaned behind the cooker, done two loads of washing and the breakfast dishes, so now I can get on and do the really important things like websites and printing images and painting...

Where is the school trip to? David has gone to a conference in Manchester today..

Thursday - yay!!

I don't have to clean behind the oven any more, ours is built in to a little cave in the bench!

The school trip is to Capital E. I think we have three shows to see during the day. I just have to be a parent, so that isn't so stressful as teaching!

Well it wasn;t too bad behind the cooker thistime and my new cooker should be here in the next hour and a half. I have printed lots of pretty images to make into cards so that will keep me busy till then...

Any idea what you are going to see at Capital E?

Nope, I recall suggesting we book it for Strathmore last year but I don't know if they did. Funny if they turn up tomorrow, huh.
And I can't recall what it was all about.

I'll want to see all the pretty cards when they're done *g*

I've made some cards and I'm pleased with them, but the images will be very familiar to any one who reads here regularly (because they are images of paintings I use as icons!)... but I might post one or two later anyway!
