Blasted British Weather

DH is working on building a new swimming pool on a holiday site in Weymouth, so yesterday i came down to spend the weekend with him.  He said there is a pretty village just up the road complete with a village green and a duck pond, I'm still sitting here waiting for the rain to stop so i can go and have a look!!  I had planned on some retail therapy today too, Weymouth has some lovely shops, so I'm hoping this blasted rain will stop before lunch time. 

I have been very neglectful of my photo blog too, if the rain clears enough i might be able to get something good enough to update it after the weekend.  After a 3 hour drive to get here i don't intend to go home without seeing the sea!

Hope the weather is better wherever you are :-)

Maggie, I hope the rain clears and that you'll be able to go out soon. Clearly you will need to buy yourself some extra bits and bobs in the shops to compensate you for the rain delay. ;)

Guess where I live Maggie! I just found your blog and was so suprised to hear you are I presume at Sutton Poyntz.
Hope the rain stopped for you, itis certainly not good today SAT.
Off now to read your older posts.

I was just going to post that you could have met up with a fellow stitcher Barb as she lives in Weymouth Maggie. Hope you have a nice time away even in the bad weather!

Hi there, I have been following your blog for quite some time. I love it. I am living in Ontario, Canada. I have two cousins in the UK, one lives in London and one has just moved to Whales, not sure where quite yet.
The Eiffle Tower pictured at the top of your blog could you tell me where you bought the chart? I really must stitch it. I just love it.
Cheers, have a great week end!

I do hope the rain eased up enough so you could get out for your retail therapy. But heck, that is so important you should go rain or no. :)

Heres hoping Sunday will be sunny and warm. :)

Yes, it is beautiful here. Quite warm and sunny and just perfect for a walk along Lake Minneola.

Hope it stops raining soon so you can get on with your shopping and sight-seeing.

Hope the weather cleared for you Maggie. Enjoy your break!

Nope! We had to finish laying the split gravel path in our front garden in the rain. It is now also windy today. But this is perfect weather to sit and stitch so that is what I will do today along with working on my quilt group newsletter. I am late with it as I normally have it done the weekend before they come to my house. Humm...maybe it is a blessing that it is raining?

Hugs from Holland ~

I hope the rain stopped and you did some shoping. I can't wait to see your photos.
Take care,

Know the feeling, we've been trying to get into the garden to sort it a little. It's either been too cold or too wet!!!

Hi Maggie, so glad to have found your blog again! I copied you shamelessly and now have a photo blog too!
