After the rain

Cabbage tree
It's been a bit of a wet couple of days, not too heavy,
 just wet enough to be a nuisance. 
So today once it stopped I went out for a walk.

This site once housed a school with a playground,
 a large hall, a small hall, 
a house and netball courts. 
Before long it will be occupied by a large supermarket.
I wonder what's going to happen to their old one
 or whether they'll run both of them.
That would give us three supermarkets.

can you see the raindrops on the leaves?
We are a small provincial town with a city 
just 20 minutes away by car.
I don't know that we could sustain 3 supermarkets to be honest.
But time will tell, and they may demolish the old building.



My GKB was out for the afternoon playing darts,
he arrived home to say they had won,
and everyone was pleased to see him back.
He had a good day out so that is all good.
sea fog coming over the top of the hill

The fog comes over the hill from the Pacific Ocean
 but luckily not too far down.
But that is not the case on the other side of the hill
where youngest daughter and her family live. 
It rolls over from the coast to the hill 
and their suburb is right in its path.

But they have marvellous weather in the summer,
a real little micro climate,
so I'd say that makes up for it.

Well , this post is a bit piecemeal sorry folks,
 I'll try to do better next time.
An update for those of you who asked. 
My hubby had a good report when 
he went to the hospital for his check up.
 He's still got a way to go but hopefully
 by Christmas the clot will be gone entirely. 
He is much better now that he's over the initial shock
 of it all and has started doing the things he enjoys again, 
like darts. He still can't get down to the river 
to fish but that'll come. 
Many thanks for your concern.


Until next time,


  1. Dearest Diana,
    Oh, how wonderful to hear your husband is doing pretty well and even socially involved. Thank you very much letting us know, I can guess how all of your family must feel now.
    Our city has too many shopping malls or big supermarkets; I wonder how they can keep their business (^^;)

    I wish to have the cool weather you must have p;)
    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  2. Hi Diana, I'm sorry to hear about your hubby's dvt and am glad to hear he is doing well. My mum had one of those about 23 years ago, she recovered well too but it is definately a scary thing to happen.
    After our lovely July, weather wise, it has certainly been a wet August with really heavy downpours just to remind us that autumn and winter is on it's way!

    Many thanks for you lovely comment on my post I really appreciate it :))

    Hope you have had a lovely weekend. Take care of yourselves :))
