Wednesday 29th July

It was five thirty in the morning and I was awakened by a cocophany of sound from the garden.  The normal chirping birds and the blackbird's cheery 'keep out of my garden' song was outdone by a lot of cackling.  The magpies were at it and creating one hell of a din and then I saw why.  They were raiding a nest in the tree but a grey cat seemed to have got there first and they were bombing it.  Now I don't have a grey cat so goodness knows where that came from so I went to get my camera and all I got was the remaining magpie high in the branches.  Noisy blighters and I'm not a great fan of magpies anyway.

So what does today hold?  It's raining so the parting shot with Princess was that we would go into Seaford if it rained to 'do the charity shops' but if the sun dared to shine we would cast our bodies as offerings to that great sun god.  As it stands at the moment the clouds dictate the charity shops after I've had a second opinion on my 'saw' finger from the nurse.

Well the nurse looked at it and suggested hot salt water and Sudocream to soften it to see if an infection comes to the surface.  I don't think it will.  It was just a deep cut and needs to heal.

We did the charity shops and I ended up buying a chrome orange/lemon squeezer that I think will make a good kitchen ornament....why???  because I can and it was cheap.  I also bought a pair of wooden sandles with an exceptionally high heel and the lady in the shop said that she liked them but couldn't walk on them to which Princess replied that I had no intention of doing that but that they would look brilliant when sitting on a bar stool.  Again...they were cheap.

After demolishing a half of a chocolate chip cake the boys were again in the pool until the clouds rolled over so I wended my weary way home and am now into cooking steak, mushrooms and chippies followed down by the remains of a cherry and walnut cake.  A little Amontillado I think while I'm creating in the kitchen....

Thursday 30th July

Angela was a let down....she didn't want to go out to play but we still had a pretty fair time.  We made do with tuna and coleslaw sandwiches, squash and finished off the cherry and walnut cake taking it 'alfresco' in the sun until the rain started.  Then we sat ourselves down in the conservatory and the sun came out again and it was intermittent sun/ rain and we coffeed ourselves out.  And can we talk .  

I've now made my arrangements for next week and am setting off for London on Tuesday morning to catch up with the two other grandchildren.  Apparently the little one has two teeth now so there will certainly be a change from when I saw him about three months ago.  

Now let's get the hotline going and arrange the rest of next week.

Friday 31st July

Well we are almost at the end of another month and where does the time go.  At this rate it will soon be Christmas.

Just sorting out tomorrow.  It's the Gay Pride parade in Brighton and after all these years of being in Brighton I have never been to see it but now that the city are supporting it with the appropriate banners over the council buildings I'll have to go and check it out or.....it is our villages Summer Fete so I just might go there instead.  It's the 'Get the Football' in the bucket that draws the most attention and the bricabrack stalls.  Good bargains to be had especially at the last minute when if it's not sold it goes to the tip.  Looks like it might be a matter of tossing a coin to see which one I grace my presence with.

Now to get ready to head into Brighton on a shopping trip. Girls will be girls.
