  1. If anyone is interested, it appears that the pandemic etc has scuppered the no-change clock plans for now https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-03-11/will-daylight-saving-time-ever-end
  2. The clocks will change in 2 weeks Sue, so we’ll get lighter mornings for a while. I wonder what will happen with clocks in future - I believe the EU has decided to abandon the twice yearly change … though not this year. I’ll try to get more detail on that It’s quite misty here but we have another bright sunny day forecast
  3. ccpm - so sorry for your loss. Take some comfort in the swiftness and that there was no suffering We led the Wednesday walk group today and had a lovely time in the still-warm weather. Two hours, over pretty flat terrain, ending in the pub. Refreshments and a further 40 minute walk home. Now settled watching the IPL semi final … and the delight of The Repair Shop tonight. What a gentle hour of TV that is.
  4. This must be Aurora away in the distance in the sunshine in Weymouth Bay then. There was a Queen with her on Monday too I guess we’ll miss them when they’ve gone - tho’ cruisers calling in to Portland might fill the gap.
  5. Sharon did hint that it was nearly time for this thread to be painlessly pts a while back 😳 Alarming thought! (Hope you’re feeling ok Sharon. Fingers crossed it’ll be 3rd time lucky for your op) Still crazy lovely weather for mid-October. Short sleeves kind of thing. We’ve been to the beach, which was very busy with walkers, doggy and non-doggy.
  6. Good morning all I’m only checking whether I can post or not - the site seems a bit iffy today I definitely can’t post pictures. Ho hum Lovely day here.
  7. Hey kalos! Good that you are All reight 🙂 Jane - great decision. Hope it won’t feel too long coming. All the winter to plough through. It’s the most wonderful day here. We’ve been to Weymouth (just one ship in the bay now - Aurora or Arcadia) and the weather was like midsummer and the crowds weren’t! The dogs have reclaimed the beach - it was packed with dog walkers and what fun the 4 legged types had. We got talking to a couple from Derbyshire who are on the Princess cruise, docked at Portland today, as we enjoyed our sandwich and sneaky beverage. They’re having a good time but said how they have to keep their expectations down - there seem to be itinerary changes and restrictions. Anyway, they’re off to Liverpool, Glasgow & Belfast and hoping to take today’s weather with them.
  8. I phoned the vet to book my pooch for her annual health check/booster jab yesterday “Sorry, can’t book you. We have no supplies. Will put you on waiting list and call you” I hope they were fibbing slightly, and actually have vaccines available for puppies, otherwise there could be all sorts of health problems for them I’ve been absent a while but, remembering the old adage about holding a grudge being akin to preparing poison but taking it yourself, well, let’s try again. We’ll see how it goes
  9. They were just a passing phase zap - soared skywards for just an hour or so before falling back to earth with a damp pfftt Enjoy your cruise ?tomorrow? 🚢
  10. Brian, this got lost a bit amongst impending birthdays, cruises and weddings It’s really serious, isn’t it, in so many places on the Continent? I see the original games site, at Olympus, is threatened, so that means my favourite Greek cruise stop at Katakolon must be in danger too I’ll shut up because I don’t want to get too heavy. I hope your property will be alright, and all your good neighbours out there
  11. That all sounds wonderful Have a great time. 🤞for ☀️
  12. Have a great time, you poor old geriatric you 😉 You certainly deserve it Happy Birthday for Sunday 🥂 🎂 I’m sure the girls will be blown away by MSC bling 🤞for sunny intervals, at the very least. Lots of ☀️ would be better
  13. Dull morning has turned into a thoroughly wet afternoon. I feel so sorry for the obvious holidaymakers, traipsing about in their parkas. Hopefully better tomorrow. We’ve just had an enjoyable lunch with my sis and b-i-l. 45 minute drive, to meet in a good pub halfway between us. Feels like going halfway round the world, compared with our usual maximum 20 minutes - or our even more usual, just walk Hope the day is panning out well for everyone
  14. Post count (rounded) speech bubble, date of joining, and location are visible under the avatar on my iPad. Not on the iPhone though I took this on my phone this morning. Wednesday walk. Very nice, followed by pub lunch - salmon mornay with duchesse potatoes and every type of veg you can think of. Also very nice. We have a poor forecast for tomorrow, unfortunately
  15. … and mittens put on top of the teapot, under the cosy, so your hands could at least be warm as you left the house Ah. All Our Yesterdays!
  16. But the count is imprecise now and sits next to a grey speech bubble 💬 So yours, zapp, says 💬 4k terrierjohn has 8.6k, I have 1.7k and Graham beats us all into a c0cked hat with 💬 23.1k As if it matters at all … Shows what our lockdown lives have become 😋
  17. Ha! No rockets now but what I I presume is a post count has appeared, under our avatar/initial. (That is new, isn’t it?) Watch this space for the next exciting development 🙄
  18. Quick - get a drink inside you and all will seem normal 🤣
  19. If this tiny bit of vid works you can even get a bit of sea sounds, just to make you even more nostalgic for the water A0704DE3-F603-4262-A488-AE8FCC77C7C8.MOV
  20. … and now the rockets have disappeared 🤷‍♀️
  21. Beat me too it! I know the site has been down this afternoon - I guess that might have been to make us all rocket-powered? 🙂
