Mid-summer downunder: the best place to be when the rain is falling softly.

I've been spending quite a bit of my holidays rocking on the verandah and listening to the rain falling on the tin roof. The smell of rain is the best perfume in the whole world!

It really suits the verandah, Jacque ... actually it's quite common here on patios etc.

I can understand why Berneih its so lovely :) Maybe This Summer il treat myself 2 a Set & have it on My New Decking which Phil is talking about laying for the Gazebo we have :)

Like the sound of that ... would be a great treat to sit out there during summer with a cool drink.

We spend all the Nice Summer eveings outside under the Pergola Berneih with Drinks & BBQ`d food ;)

Well we certainly have that in common ... while we don't spend every summer's evening out in the courtyard having a bbq and a cool drink or 3, it does happen quite a bit - some summer evenings it's just way too hot and humid!!

Lol, Sueb ... well it is a fairly big verandah, I'm sure I could squeeze quite a few GOYers onto it!!

Please could I be top of the list Please please please It's just started snowing here and I've had a burst pipe this evening. I sob! Need sob! Sunshine Sob! And I've got some nice wine I was given at Christmas and 6 big bars of chocolate Loll!!

5 Jan, 2010

 

Right ... wine AND chocolate, that's an incentive that would work with me sooooo.. easily! You're officially on the top of the list!!

5 Jan, 2010

 

Thank you Mum!

5 Jan, 2010

 

Lol ... it doesn't take much to persuade me, does it!!!

5 Jan, 2010

 

No..... lol but could any girl resist wine and chocolate..... and a very very nice garden to look at. but for now I have a cup of tea for me and bed soon I think.

5 Jan, 2010

 

Well sleep tight ... let's hope there's some reprieve from the snow and ice soon!

Oh Bernie I can just imagine it - wish I was there. Instead, I have to go and cook my daughters' some tea - it's tough being a Dad ! (love it though !!) ;-)

Bang those pots ... serve that dinner ... and make sure it's all done with love! It brings back memories .. my youngest son would sometimes look at me and just say "There's no love in this tonight is there?" ... and he was usually right!! I just didn't care some days after a tough week at work ... now that it's just the two of us .. hubbie has started saying it every now and then too!!

7 Jan, 2010

 

OWWW, I am getting homesick. No more pictures like that please.....

8 Jan, 2010

 

Sorry ... I'm sure once the lovely wildflowers start to bloom over there I'll be the one to say stop making me jealous!

Summer rain on the verandah roof. Wonderful !! We are getting the other stuff here though. Not quite the same but serves us right for being 'Poms'.

Jbardet ... the rain is over for now and the heat and humidity have ramped up!! Most days now are stinking hot and sticky ... I'm only out on the verandah now in the evening when the sea breeze drifts in!

So lovely, that verandah!
