Rain Rain Go Away

 Ask me if it has been raining here today!!  Well let me tell you - yes it has been and then some.  My goodness it has  POURED  with rain today.  In fact it has rained most days this week. Laura and I have just come in from shopping - and let me tell you the girl can shop ;)  my feet were well tired and that was just walking around the shopping centre.  We got soaked running from the car into the shopping centre and back again. On the journey there it was raining so hard the windscreen wipers could hardly keep up.  I was beginning to wish I had stayed at home lol. 

Anyway we are home now and in for the night. So telly is on and we are watching 'Friends' which is always good.  After dinner I am going to grab a glass of wine and relax and listen to the pouring rain from inside my nice warm house. 

I don't know if you are interested in an update on our bathroom - you aren't!! Well I'm going to tell you anyway :) We now have a working toilet, bath and basin. Some of the tiling is done, most of the plumbing is complete - phew - if you knew about all our leaks you would know what I am talking about.  When we are a wee bit further along I will post some pictures for you all to see.  I'll bet you can't wait  haa haa.

i don't like being out and about in the rain, but coming home and being inside with a warm drink and family afterwards sounds heavenly. :)

glad your bathroom is almost there!!!
We have had a totally wet and miserable day here today but I decided to curl up on the sofa, watch a movie and drink tea, so all in all a nice day!

Hope that October will be better weatherwise for both of us Ellie and just to let you know that you have 83 days of shopping left until Christmas!!!

Lovely rainbow picture!
I know we've all this rain up here in Scotland and down in England the beaches are packed though did you see those newpaper pics? - you could get lost on those beaches as everyone is packed in like sardines............ give me a lonely silver sand beach on the west coast anyday.

I read this listening to the rain pelt against my window. I know we live thousands and thousands of miles away from each other but I can envision myself sitting near this beautiful building in your photo. B

Dear Ellie, this is Orchid.
Oh, I can guess how it was in and out under the rain. At least, I hope you and Laura (must be one of your daughters) could have a good shopping. Haha, I loved the way you calloed TV "telly"
You had trouble in your bathroom, must be a big relief to get it fixed♬♬♬
PS> Thank you SO much for your sweet words in my post today!!! It meant a lot to me, my friend.
Blessing to all of your family, Orchid*
