Well it looks like we are in for a normal summer day in the Forest of Dean its raining once again. I am waiting with bated breath for the summer to start - probably about the same time school starts again in Sept.

Morning, dry but dull here so far. I think the summer will only start once the schools go back after the hols. I have heard a rumour though that we should be having a really nice weekend.

Good mug C, dull and windy here too - building up for a storm, I would think.

Suze says:
The winds getting up here as well now. Hope you're wrong Brian, I don't mind storms but am so not in the mood for listening to one today.

Good Morning Everyone. Dull in East London. Won't keep my spirit dull though, I am off for my double espresso. No sugar.

Have a lovely day, wherever you are and whatever you do.

Sunny but cool in Stockport.

Doorbell ringing at 6.10 am but no one there - too early for ring and runaway - may be I'm imagining the bell is ringing in my head.

Gardener decided lawn does not need hosing - I think he's worried about my walking stick puncturing it. I am just hoping for gentle rain every so often.

Hope you are feeling ok French and managed to get some sleep last night.

Have a nice day everyone.

Rained all night (again!) so garden is still more like a pond! Grey, overcast, very windy and a bit cooler today.....so fairly normal summer day for this year really :-) We are told September will be warm and sunny....an Indian summer maybe? I do hope so otherwise winter will be upon us and we won't notice the difference :-)x

Seems Manchester and Stockport aren't getting the all night rain other areas are.

When you don't want it the rain pours down.

Morning K.A. A few years ago a neighbour (3 houses away from mine) and I managed to buy identical doorbells with the same chime. So every time one of us had a visitor, both doorbells rang! It took a while for us to work it out, but then he changed his to another chime and all was well :-) Maybe one of your neighbours has the same doorbell as you and it was they who had an early visitor :-)x

So its a case of 'for whom the bell tolls'...

Sunny in the back garden, granite grey out the front...

Good morning! Persisting down in Cardiff, so no change there. I sometimes get woken up by the sound of the doorbell or the phone and I've actually dreamt it .

Coming down like stair-rods here in Helston - I still have Sunday's mild sunburn as a memory of what summer should be like, though.

I did not know this expression - thank you Gail for contributing to my English education :) :
Raining stair-rods
Meaning
raining stair-rodsRaining very heavily.
Origin
This is a colloquial North of England expression. Stair-rods are the metal rods that hold stair-carpets in place on each step. The allusion is to rain which is so heavy as to appear like falling stair-rods.

(I only knew: it is raining like cats and dogs - which I always find amusing)

Warm and sunny in dublin. I left work yesterday afternoon to actual sunshine and had to take my coat off... It can't last.

Morning all. Very hot in SW France (Aveyron) today.

Hi French - glad to have helped swell your vocabulary!! I didn't realise it was a Northern expression but that would make sense (I'm from Manchester originally). It's to do with the rain looking like stair rods as it comes down, long and straight.

Another one for your collection is 'sheeting down' but you have to be careful how you say that if you have an accent ;-)

oh Yuck... I was dipping my biscuit (in French fashion) in my coffee when it broke off and fell into it. I hate when this happens.

Alas happens with Rich tea too French - how are you?

Frenchie says:
I am fine Scarly. It was a Rich tea and I should know better than dipping them in my coffee (but as no one was seeing me LOL)-
I hope you have your raincoat on today.

Frenchie says:
Gail, I will miss on this one because I know exactly when how it will sound. When I was working, we had an office in Fakenham and everytime I pronounced it, everyone would erupt in laugther... so, no sheeting down for me, thank you **smiles**

Peter Kay says the only reliable biscuits for dunking are Hob Nobs. He calls them the 'marines' of the biscuit world.
