I love this picture, it is like a chocolate river with some rocks in it, besides the beautiful picture, it looks delicious as well :)

When the weather occasionaly acts like the season should be, I am outdoors, my yard is on the south side of the house.
With the warmer weather my home sowed annuals grow better, and the weeds even better... And I am in a never ending war with the slugs.

I realise I am rather busy myself, which is to blame on your Queen's jubileum. I started to play Runescape in 2004, and after some time (too long) I quitted because it is so time consuming. At the end of May I got a free 2 weeks subscription (the Jagex games studio is headquartered in Cambridge), so I spend quite some time skilling up my character... And now there is the outstanding household stuff again - cleaning ofcourse :D

Yesterday was sunny, so I took my mother for a trip to the Beemster polder, which she frequented with my father so much.
Today lots of rain again, which means the slugs are on the winning side :(
Between the showers I went to the market to start buying stuff for my upcoming bday party, I want to do a high tea for who knows how many will join... probably 20? Can be 15, or 25, I really don't know yet. It is not for another week, but I need to clean house as well, which I dread :( So if everything for the food is arranged - I want to do all the baking myself, except for the loafs for the sandwiches, it will make things easier :D
Husband started to saw next winter's firewood today, we better be prepared. Even this June we built a fire in the heater several times...

How is your health going along now?

Oh my seasons, they may as well be gone with them! here it has been two weeks of rain, wind and general overcast skies when it should be glorious! We have also had the heating on and our winter clothes and coats.

Even though our garden is a courtyard garden covered in concrete we too have many weeds and slugs, our slug war never ends as we get up in the mornings to find slug trails in our house almost daily! nasty things.

It's good you have been making the most of the sun while it has been out, now send some our way please ;) You birthday idea sounds wonderful.

My health is all over the place at the moment. I never realized just how much stress and anxiety effects my IBS until now. It was awful last weeks, i was having the worst anxiety attacks i have had in years! My other half went away for 5 days for a music festival, the longest time we have been apart in 9 years and as it was just after having an anxiety attack i was stressed before he even went. Since he came home on Monday though everything seems to have calmed now.
I have also been busy with sorting out my eldest daughters school, she starts in September so has been going to lots of open days and we have to get her uniform and forms sorted. The other thing that has kept me off of DA most is planning my wedding. The day after our ten year anniversary i got to thinking after someone said on here he should buy me a ring. I have put it off for so long as i am not a wedding person but i thought it's ten years we probably should get married, my other half said i better buy you a ring then. (i'm still waiting for my ring by the way lol) We will marry on Halloween this year. I wanted the same year as our ten year anniversary so that gives me 4 months to plan, it's going to be small 20-25 people and very nontraditional as the white dress, speeches and dances is what has put me off for so long.
