I scream, You scream, We all scream, Ice Cream!

(It's a jazz song............. I haven't flipped!)

Especially for Helen, here in all it's half eaten glory is my rum and raisin ice cream!!

It's really good!!! And was a lovely way to finish another day that had got into the 30's!! (By the way I am less than 10 miles from the place that officially recorded the hottest July temperature on record this week - 36.5 deg C at Wisley!!! - that's hot!!)

I'm excited today as there are forecasts of rain and storms. So my intention is to walk into town then take the dog for a well deserved walk - hope they've got it right, 'cos I love a good storm!!!

Have a good weekend everyone!

Nothing much to report

The weekend was really special though - we had a ball! My DN is the sunniest little lad, a real pleasure to be with - keeping everyone on their toes and trying to make sure we all get a chance to play! - I had the dubious honour of being "got" by the water pistol (so did his mum but hers didn't work so well, I got soaked, she got a few drips!) but for me the best bit was he and I dancing on our bums (Well OK just wriggling really, but we called it dancing!) to Ray Charles "I gotta woman" - DN even managed to get the Oh Yeah's in the right place and he's only 2 1/2!!! Special!

Since then not much has been happening. I am crafting a few little bits, but can't write about that as my spoilee may read my blog. Other than that it is really too hot to do too much. The house is a bit of a mess even by my lax standards , and the garden is just a shame - all the grass is dead, the flowerbeds dry and empty (except for weeds which even seem to survive this weather) and even the dog is pretty quiet! It did rain for about a minute and a half last night - I got all excited and ran out and stood in the garden in it! - but it didn't last, and today is as hot as ever. We are expecting a break in it today I think, so hopefully I will later be walking the dog in the rain! I am also hoping to make some rum and raisin ice cream this afternoon for my OH as it's his favourite and he deserves spoiling - raisins are soaking in rum as we speak!!!
