The weather is crazy. Yesterday it was heavy gusty winds and, in some parts, there were mini tornadoes knocking down trees.

Today started off beautiful then, at around 2.30 p.m. there was hailstone, then sunshine again.

I'll not be roasting in just 20C though. I'll still be wearing me woolly pullies 'cos I'll still be as cowd as a penguin's ar ... er bum.

Peter, I went out and cut mine, the front one cut ok ish, but my back one is still water logged, the grass is growing but the wheels on the mower sink into the ground so its umpossible to cut but, in the greenhouse the seeds are now seedlings, I have lettuce .tomatoes, beetroot, spring onions, various flowers including Sunflowers which, I will take to Anne when they are big enough,

The blossom trees in Poolstock lane are in full bloom and raining all over the road and nature is reborn , I hoping soon to be able to turn the heating off

I was so fed-up with that hailstone, wind and rain today that I thought, "I'm Off"! and booked flights to Spain on Saturday for me and t'waaaaife. £31 each, return. S'not worth stopping here at that praaaaice. Forecast 22 to 24 degrees and sunny!

Tonker, do you have room in a suitcase for a little 'un? I don't up take much room and there'd still be space to pack yer socks as well.

Aye, it's still cowd here, but at least that flippin' wind has disappeared - for now.

No - it isn't in Wigan. Then again most of you lot who think they live in Wigan, don't. Right Mr Tonks?

Very true, but I am a true born Wiganner, although I don't live IN Wigan now though in accordance with Mr Tonker's Geographical Survey of Wigan Borough and its environs.
