"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    My alcohol tolerance is quite low so I don't dare drink too much @mohit_singh. Right now I'm dithering whether I should go out and meet with some friends this morning or stay home and try and tackle some of the chores that are still waiting for me to do.

    Patience is a beautiful virtue isn't it @mheredge? :# I wish you a lot of it today and I hope the builder is soon at your house.

    He's here now and I'm being deafened @Paulette! The end is in sight, but I have to find an electrician as the rewiring of my timer for the immersion heater is too complicated for him to do.

    Because I already sent my daughter to sleep, I'm now preparing all the learning materials to be used on Monday, the first day of class. My long vacation is almost over. I think my body is not yet ready for another school year.
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 3,072 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Funnily enough as @jhoy16 is preparing for a new school yes, here teachers, children and students can't wait to start their 2 month summer break.

    @Zom. What they're feeling now is the total opposite of what i feel. And by the way, it's now summer there. Enjoy the sunshine.

  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 3,072 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Count on me @jhoy16. Fingers crossed that this year the weather will agree that it's got toput on its summer clothes for two months. All the best with the new school year for you, colleagues and school kids.

    No kidding @mouna, you are used to taking a nap in the afternoon? Maybe it's because your work in shifts.

    I'm about to go down and water my seeds. I planted a few things and sowed some seeds last week and so I have to make sure that everything gets a lot of water. I think I can see the first few shoots - unless these are weeds.

    I am spoiling my husband because we celebrate Father's Day today in Belgium. So I make a very special cake for him (sugar free because he has diabetes).

    Just working out a little. It´s a very hot day here so it´s not easy :)
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 19,969 mod
    @jcfb do you live far from the forest fires in Portugal? So many victims trough the heat, I can't believe it when I saw the pictures at TV.
  • jcfbjcfb Posts: 66 ✭✭
    @Paulette Yes, I live very far from the forest fires. It was the worst fire ever in Portugal. It seems that the cause of the fire was a lightning that cut a pine tree and start the fire. To make things worse, the wind at that day was very strong and caught by surprise a lot of people driving on a road nearby.

    We can´t imagine the suffering that those people have gone through. :(
