Amelia is on her way

In a couple of hours we will leave for the airport to collect Amelia and her family. Everything is ready for them and we are so excited if a little concerned about how they will all cope with the heat. Every day seems just a little bit hotter and it's difficult to keep the house cool, 29 degrees in the hall when we went to bed last night. I'm not complaining through, loving the sweltering days with heat that almost knocks you over when you step out of the air conditioned car, loving the morning freshness when I get up around 6.30 and wander outside still in my nightie, loving the balmy evenings sitting out under millions of stars.
Mr FF has purchased some blogging app that he says will enable me to load photos, plus some device that will enable me to get them off my camera. Whether I will have the patience to learn how to use them is another matter altogether. I have finished my first pair of socks, never realised before now much yarn and nedles could raise your temperature, a few rows had me in a complete lather.
Must shower and dress, busy day ahead and be nice to wear something other than my usual shorts and a camisole.


  1. Have a lovely time with Amelia and her family. I bet the paddling pool will get lots of use!

  2. Your just showing off now aren't you?! Sounds wonderful.

    August in the UK yesterday, rainy, lots of rain, cold, people wearing jumpers and cardigans is common, I actually saw several winter coats being brought back into action.

  3. I would not mind swopping my jeans and jumper for your shorts and camisole. Yesterday I saw several people wearing winter coats.

  4. Please send me some of the heat! Have a lovely time with your visitors!!
