    Need a few very large umbrellas for lunch al fresco here Marco

    We've also got a load of stuff to do in the garden over this weekend, before Dolores goes back to work on Tuesday. Been a nice 7 weeks summer hols, though

    Will probably treat her to Sunday lunch in a nice country pub, as since we've returned from Italy, we've both [but especially Del] been rather busy entertaining others!

    They get 7 weeks these days do they? When I was a kid it was 5 weeks, then in about 1969 it went up to 6 weeks.

    All progress I suppose - maybe kids learn quicker these days, although it doesn't look like it. With all the names they've got for it these days (ADD, ADHD, BADHEAD, etc) It's more likely that the staff just need to get away from them for longer

    I'm not complaining - seven weeks of brat taxi-free commuting certainly makes work more bearable

    Lol - I think it's six, but Del had some time owed to her, and so added an extra week onto her summer hols, as she also often does at Christmas. She's certainly earned the break, as being a teacher today is a very demanding job. It's not only teaching, but also being a social worker, mentor, councillor and stand-in parent for the kids she teaches (due to a lot of 'parents' these days not being worthy of the name)!

    Anyway, it means we've got plenty of time to go away somewhere nice and also get some stuff done in the house, particularly in the garden, have a few BBQs and socialise with friends and family

    Marco.

    It's been getting steadily warmer. Up to around 27C this afternoon, a bit warmer than I like really. 21C all year round would suit me nicely!

    Pretty similar here, Geoff, and trust me over the weekend it's set to get even hotter! Del and I are about to break out some ice-cold Aperol Spritz - enjoy life!
