    Ive noticed a problem with the original thread, taking me to page 1 of the thread. Assuming its the same problem as my original Brexit thread (stolen by WMC lol) that there were too many pages, i have started another weather thread (stolen from lightbodyae55 lol).

    A little breezy but otherwise fine – a sunny 19c at the moment.

    Feeling rather tired today after yesterday’s jaunt to Guildford.  Went to just have a look at a Ford Puma Vignale at the Ford showroom and even though I told them at the start that I wouldn’t be changing cars for months yet, and was literally ‘just having a look’, the receptionist arranged for one of the reps to have a quick chat and I got to sit in one to test the seat height etc

    It’s gorgeous.  And so easy to get in and out of.  And even though it’s actually slightly narrower and slightly shorter than my Golf it seemed huge inside and outside.  Well pleased.  I now have to hope it’s still around by the time I can finally change cars – realistically closer to a year now that DWP have postponed my review, which should have been next month, with renewal due from November, but now it won’t be until next summer!

    I’ve got to ask – what colour, Georgie? Ford Feckless Tart Red? The black hat is extra…

    Go on, you know you want to!

    Desert Island Blue.  Definitely.

    Still have Mini to look at, mind you, and that would be in BRG.  I literally had to drive past the Mini showroom to reach the Ford showroom, but by the time I’d finished my unexpectedly extended Puma inspection I didn’t have the energy to visit Mini as well.  But Guildford’s an easy drive from here so I’m sure I’ll visit in due course.

    Again – I’m now planning a year ahead again and it’ll all be different, anyway.

    But seriously – a very nice car for the AP.

    Cool, wet and windy, with sunny spells.  Just had a heavy downpour and now it’s clear blue skies again.  Take a look at the ‘satellite image’ on BBC weather site – a beautiful spiral of rain clouds covering the whole of England.

    Weather Gods very confused. Wet, cold, dryer, sunny and warm. All in about two hours. Wind still blowing its heart out. Watched a rail Little Egret  trying to fly west in this south-westerly. Egret not the most aerodynamically powerful bird. Flying at 45degrees into wind. Hope it made it to river where it can shelter in the bullrushes.

    light gray skies and temp of 16c make it nice and cool, though not fresh. 76% chance of more rain…

    Nice so far today with light cloud cover and no breeze at the moment, despite the BBC forecast currently (and rather ambitiously, imho) saying 77% chance of a thunderstorm from 5pm.

    I feel like I’ve spent the last 3 days with my head feeling like it’s stuffed with cotton-wool, constantly tired and I can’t stay focused. (Shouldn’t ‘focused’ have 2 s’s?)

    Wet, wetter, wettest. No sun. Barely making 15C in garden. 😕

    Past participle of focus is optional on number of s’s but still “looks wrong” whichever way you type it!

    Are you planning to eat it, ajn?  They’re reported to be rather tasty, just beware of the bones.

    Never did get that thunderstorm yesterday.  Today it’s a tad cooler with light cloud, but still pleasant.

    No Georgie just catch it try to look brave holding it then let it go..

    I have caught just about every sea fish through out West Wales and fresh water, just never got one of these, did miss a follow/attack of one as a young lad though.

    Yet another fine day here. Sun has been blazing since early doors. No cloud and a nice 17.5c out doors.

    Regarding the Pike ajn. There is a boating lake near by that is fed by natural springs. It also has 3 deep shafts in there also. We used to hire a row boat and fish that area with spinners. Had some nice catches there. Back in the day.

    Used to go fishing with my older brother when I was about 10 – he’d fish and I’d watch, wander or read a book.  I remember he caught a pike one time but it was badly diseased and he didn’t want to return it to the pond or handle it so he could dispatch it with a priest, so he . . . smacked it to death against a tree trunk.

    We’ll probably for the best Georgie, I think your brother did right..

    I once shot a large mirror carp with a shotgun due to a massive hole in its side due to some sort off disease or possible pike attack, obviously not much left of it and instant death, the magpies & crows cleared up, I was 13..

    Improving at the moment. Got sunny all of a sudden and temp went from 16C  to 22C. Not much wind either. Really not unpleasant summer’s day.

    Talking of wildlife, cabbage white caterpillars are munching their way through our nasturtiums. They are still holding on to blooms, though, just losing leaves. Reckon the beasts are welcome to ’em. Don’t seem to chomp anything else and do a lot of pollinating when they get t0 butterfly stage.

    You had a shotgun at 13?  If I may ask – Are you a ‘country lad’ or did you grow up in a country with more liberal gun laws?

    Or, possibly, the son of a Bank Robber?
