Spring Is On It's Way!!

Thursday 1st August, 2013

Yay, August is here and that can only mean one thing........Spring is 31 days away!!!

Actually the weatherman has said that July has been our warmest month for 38 years, this being mainly due to the overnight temperature being 'warmer' than usual.  We also had the wettest July for 18 years.

The bad news is that August will be more winter-like with colder overnight temperatures due to the high pressure systems bringing clearer skies and we may also have a drier month.

It looks as if I will have to call back the washing machine repair man.  Water is once again leaking from under the machine.  Looks as if the hose he tightened up may have loosened itself again.  Grrrr!! 

We should have the new airconditioner installed within the next few weeks.  Got the car back on Monday, looks as if it is running how it should be but time will tell if it will continue to do so.  As soon it shows any signs of failing (the istop) the car will be straight back to City Mazda.

Katie rang to let us know that she has again been chosen as part of the choir to sing at the Festival Centre in September.  She said she is already starting to feel nervous.

With Tony's help we finally managed to give the house a good thorough clean instead of the lick and promise I usually manage to give it.  Now if only those dust bunnies realise they are not welcome here and move into someone else's house.

With the warmer weather we had in July it is understandable how our neighbour's, David and Sally,  garden is looking so good with all the flowers in bloom.  Walking out of our front door the scent from the Stocks is heavenly.

  1. What a pretty garden. Oh my, I envy you with Spring on it's way soon. Our next season will be Autumn. I like that one, but not Winter. You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.
