http://i70.servimg.c We managed to see it from time to time. We're about 15 minutes from Jodrell Bank where they were hosting Star Gazing Live and we were in and out of the garden whilst also watching it on the television. I thought it was amazing and very awesome http://www.picgifs.c

Sorry you didn't get to see it Safariman but no doubt you'll see plenty on the news or Star Gazing Live tonight

Unfortunately there was thick cloud early this morning and so did not see any of the eclipse although it did get dark for half an hour which meant I had to put the lights on!! However by 11:30 the sun was shining out of a cloudless blue sky!!! Such is life!!
Have a good weekend everyone.

cheers Great to have you back Doogs. Its understandable work piles up when you have been on holiday so it must take quite a bit of time to catch up..
We thought we were going to be getting a really good view of the eclipse, it was really sunny, and a lot of blue sky first thing in the morning. But as soon as the eclipse was due it clouded over Mad whent like dusk which was to be expected, but then it started raining which wasn't forecast, and carried on for the whole of the day more like Nov. Different world today sunny all day people on the beaches, and the area full of visitors, crazy weather.

Good morning everyone

What a shame WS but as you say crazy weather. It's lovely here today but it seems to be every other day at the moment scratch

I'm off to London until Friday with my mother catching up with some of her friends and relations and an exhibition at the Queen's Gallery which should be fun - I especially love the shop with Buck House bits and pieces!

Enjoy the rest of the week and catch up soon.

Wink Afternoon all

Hope you're having/had a great time in London with your mum I love you

Just looking back at the posts on here and really sorry to hear LW has not been well again and also Tiga. I hope they have been managing to look after each other and they are both well again very soon. As always big bosies Group Hug

Bodyguard was good Lai, few extra Whitney songs in there so always good for a sing-a-long cheers

When I go to Cheltenham I save up money every week for my betting / spending, lets just say I came back with all that I went away with and a wee bit more . . . so that's next years trip paid for already.

Beautiful birght sunny day up here today.

Rememeber everyone the clocks go forward at the weekend.

Good morning everyone

Thanks for the reminder Doogs let's hope we all remember tonight lol!

That's a good idea Doogs and you're a natural at the races as you always seem to do well Very Happy

London was fun and dry thankfully, and a bit exhausting for my mum but she enjoyed catching up with friends and doing the exhibition.

Have a good weekend everyone - it's tipping down here just now. Tom's on his way up from Swansea for a few days and then he's almost finished Uni Laughing

Well it worked, but it worked to well really. I stuck my head out at around 2-00am Tuesday morning, just about the time a gust of 97mph was recorded in Capel Curig which is not far from us, and confirmed it was very windy. What a Face You haven't seen a wig floating round your area have you Doogs ?

WS Very Happy

WS - you are funny!

Just a quick hello from me to let you know that Littlewid has had a bad time again with Lupus, her eyes and another fractured rib. She's so sorry she hasn't been on to WAA but really is struggling with it all and will be in touch just as soon as she can.

Hope you get it sorted tomorrow WS.

albino Happy Easter Everyone albino

Oh myt work, poor LW, that's just awful Crying or Very sad She really does deserve a break (sorry, probably not the right word to use there !) and a turn in fortunes with her health, she's had more than her fair share Group Hug

We got Friday off but unfortunately I'm working today and it's very quiet. What a weird week of weather we have had up here, snow (yes I did say snow) on Thursday, wind/rain/cold on Friday, Saturday a bit better and then beautiful, warm sunny yesterday and today, totally bizarre !

Wee holiday booked last week for later in the year, not as warm and extravagent as Kenya but still something to look forward to. 6 nights / 7 days in London and Paris at the end of September / beginning of October. We're going across to Paris for their Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe horse racing meeting, always wanted to go to that.

Enjoy the rest of Easter and your time off everyone Hug

Sorry to hear that LW is still suffering from health problems. If anybody is in touch with her please pass on my best wishes for a speedy recovery.
It would seem that spring has eventually sprung with some very welcome warm sunshine and the buds are rapidly appearing on all the shrubs and trees and the birds appear to be starting to think about nesting. Sadly the swans have not reappeared on the pond this year so will have to be content with the moorhens and some mallards.
Hope you get your internet connection sorted soon WS so that you can be back posting and not having to rely on internet cafes. Do any of your local pubs have free wi-fi then you can kill two birds with one stone!!
Going to Paris for the Prix de l'Arc should be great fun Doogs it will give you a chance to dress up. Is there a strict dress code similar to Ascot!!

Finally got back on . Engineer found the fault in a junction box at the end of the road.
Shame about LW sounds like she's really suffering hopefully she'll get better soon. The weathers been a bit strange here as well, one day freezing sea mist next day glorious, today has been lovely plenty of sunny , glad you've booked yourself a break Doogs you deserve it. Safariman I tried the Pub Internet but unfortunately I find it difficult to type and hold a Pint at the same time http://www.picgifs.c . Hope you've had some nice weather Lai, and Safariman. Shame about the Swans, but I'm sure we'll love your photos of the Mallards, and the Coots. I will try to catch up on as much as I can, as soon as I can

Yeah - Glad you are up and running again WS  

Thats a shame about the swans Safariman, is that the first time in a number of years ?  I dont believe there is (but will check before going) a dress code for the Arc meeting . . . hoping to get good weather but at the beginning of October it can be a hit or a miss.  After many years of attending race meetings I'd rather be warm and dry than dressed up and cold

Lai, its Grand National weekend . . . I know you usually have a flutter on the big race so get looking at those horses Wink

Good morning everyone and thanks for good wishes re migraines, I've got some great stuff from the doctor which I always have handy and am hoping with less stress at work to get them under control again Very Happy  

http://i70.servimg.c  Doogs, well done also at the GN for getting 2nd and 4th as I said in my text I got 1st and Pete got 3rd.  We also had good odds e/w so were more than happy with the result.  Sadly 2 of my mums horses fell What a Face

WS You the man

Fingers crossed for the weather, it looks like we're having a real north south divide later this week.
