Big Boast – here in WEST YORKSHIRE we have had SUNSHINE today!

We had almost forgotton what it looked like.

Went for a short walk, and then did some tidying in the garden. There is so much stuff laid around that has been over wintering, that we thought we had better have a sort out. We only did an hour, but we knew that we had been working when we came back in.

Felt so much better …..

Puppy? Why haven't we heard about this news, Tt?

NO sun here, just chilly, grey and drizzly. I took Henry out and since then I have been working on my course work by the fire all p.m.

Puppy photo only went on GoY today.
Not sure I've heard about Spritz's course.
What's that about ? :o)
Marge's blog is turning out to be very revealing ! Lol

...and the Lincs members might now understand why I was desperate to know the true weather up there a few days ago !

Come on, let's have the details about this puppy. You are keeping doggy stuff from your public. We need to know every last detail ?????(please)

It's nice you've had sunshine Marge. We've had quite a bit here lately but it's been too cold to apreciate it. Roll on spring.

We had a lovely sunny day too and did loads of digging and weeding in the garden. Also had time for a short walk and found the first flush of primroses and cowslips on the sunny grass bank down the road. Now we feel that, despite the threatening snow over the next few days, Spring really is just around the corner.
Just as well my partner didn't know about your puppy TT, he'd have spent all day just gazing at the photo!

great to see some sunshine at last.
i too managed to get into the garden for a wee while, just did a tidy up and sowed some more seeds

14 Feb, 2009


I did some seed sowing yesterday, it was'nt sunshine but quite mild.

Well, its nice to know that if I still lived in Wakefield I'd have had sun. I could use some of that over here. Snow for two days then two days of overcast and fog. :o(
Nice that you could get out in the garden for a while.

Hi Gilli, we have had sun again today. I don't live far from Wakefield, but I do not go often, I get scared by big towns and cities - too many people and too much traffic!

15 Feb, 2009


I don't blame you Marge. I don't like big towns and cities either. And here I live in a city!! At least we are on the outskirts. I really miss living in the country. I've been in Kamloops 4 years now and I would move back to Armstrong in a flash if I could. Oh well. Maybe when we retire. :o)
