6 Jul, 2012

 

oh good! and you would have laughed even more if you had watched me trying to get the photo and then take the umbrella back in ~ i got soaked!!!

6 Jul, 2012

 

lol, bit low i'd say

6 Jul, 2012

 

it wouldnt stay where i wanted it to stevie!

6 Jul, 2012

 

The most summery thing I've seen for ages,Sticki!!!Like it!

6 Jul, 2012

 

rain bringing the colours out???

perhaps i should have called it 'summer is cancelled'?

6 Jul, 2012

 

Great umbrella, Sticki! Thanks for the smile.

6 Jul, 2012

 

:-)

all the water out of it ran down my sleeve when i took it down!!!!

6 Jul, 2012

 

Serves you right for tormenting us.....

6 Jul, 2012

 

;-)))

6 Jul, 2012

 

Thanks for the chuckle Sticki - and love the rainbow brolly - very appropriate! :)))

6 Jul, 2012

 

maybe i should have put a white flag on top ~ TRUCE ??

6 Jul, 2012

 

Lol, that's what husbands are for (sorry husbands) Please darling can you hold this umbrella up at the right height so I can photograph it for GoY!
It's a very cheerful umbrella Sticki!
Turn it upside down and you have a pond!

6 Jul, 2012

 

a spinning colourful pond?

i never use this umbrella, i cant be bothered with them, rather get wet!!! [dont like anyone holding one for me either!!!]

6 Jul, 2012

 

I know what you mean, I buy them, loose them, buy one again, never use it, go somewhere where it's really wet (like the races) wish I'd brought it along. Give up! Rather turn it into a pond! A spinning, colourful pond!

6 Jul, 2012

 

not so good for fish maybe??

6 Jul, 2012

 

Rainbow trout!

6 Jul, 2012

6 Jul, 2012

 

Haha Sticki :D I heard the weather forecast is going to just be repeated now all summer :D

6 Jul, 2012

6 Jul, 2012

 

hopefully I have just a little hope for end of July and August could be great - I feel a late summer this year - september will be very dry and warm - bvecuase I go on holiday then ;))))))

6 Jul, 2012

6 Jul, 2012

6 Jul, 2012

 

never have i hoped they had got it wrong [again] more!!!

6 Jul, 2012

 

Well the brolly is bright and cheerful if the weather is not. Liked that, but not at all happy with the forecast!

6 Jul, 2012

 

no not so good is it tuesday

6 Jul, 2012

 

Awww lol

6 Jul, 2012

 

love your brolly sticki

6 Jul, 2012

 

I always imagined you were taller :-D

6 Jul, 2012

 

glad it made you smile! thanks pixi and sanbaz

really julie??? im not quite as wide though!!!!

6 Jul, 2012

 

Ha ha we'll have to talk your word for that ;-D (Only joking!!)

7 Jul, 2012

 

sadly im not getting thinner, wish i was!!!

the umbrella wouldnt go through the door but i can!!! be useful if i could fold myself up when needed!!

7 Jul, 2012

 

Lovely bright brolly for the garden Sticki. To brighten up our dull Summer. A tent around the table would be suitable for the weather we've had!

8 Jul, 2012

 

I think so Linda although some days even that would have blown away!

8 Jul, 2012

 

Made me chuckle too - you've gotta laugh haven't you? Must admit I like being under an umbrella when it's chucking it down. Thinking about it . . I don't actually own one at the moment! ;-)

8 Jul, 2012

 

we used to play parachute games with the children in school and one of their favourites was when you bring the whole thing down like a mushroom with all of the children inside!!!

8 Jul, 2012

 

It reminded me of one of those parachutes, Sticki! How I used to love those (once took part in a session as one of a "class" of other teachers on a course - it was great, I've never forgotten it!)
Well done - super picture, says it all!

9 Jul, 2012

 

thanks melchi, i hope the children remember those fun times too!!!

9 Jul, 2012

 

:-) I think they probably do!

9 Jul, 2012

 

:-)
those are some of the best bits of teaching! when you see the children's eyes light up, having fun!!

9 Jul, 2012

 

Oh yes!

9 Jul, 2012

 

:-)

9 Jul, 2012

 

Strange plant you've got there, Sticki! Could it be Unbrellifolia?

12 Jul, 2012

 

You and Mel are bringing back memories; still miss teaching so badly that it hurts.

12 Jul, 2012

 

i think that could be the one nariz, thanks for the name ~ its the perennial version.

sorry to hear that tuesday ~ im currently doing some 1 :1 tuition ~ would that suit you?

12 Jul, 2012

 

I've done quite a bit of that but it doesn't give me the same 'buzz'. Thanks though.

12 Jul, 2012

 

no i know what you mean it doesnt do that ~ you dont feel part of the team quite the same i think?

12 Jul, 2012

 

Have you tried supply work? I got the biggest buzz of all out of that. Although I don't think there's as much of that around anymore - not short-term, anyway.

12 Jul, 2012

 

Does it self-seed?

14 Jul, 2012

 

It would be extremely useful this year if it does!

14 Jul, 2012

 

um yes ~ have you seen the baby ones ~ they usually appear in cocktails.
