    Hello folks!

    Well done with the kitties, @Lyn and @WonkyWomble.  Patience and kindness win in the end.   :)

    Popped to the post office (wearing full waterproof gear!) to post a birthday card, and got drawn in to a cake sale in aid of the local Camogie team.  Now there's a sport if you want something different... it's the women's version of hurling, which was well described as a cross between hockey and murder.   ;)

    We have persistent rain, but very little wind.  We're far enough from the coast and sheltered by a hill & stand of trees on the south side too.  Hope you and your gardens survive unscathed...

    Flat crumpets are pikelets in W.Yorks, too.  Definitely better than the thick sort.  Anyone tried making them?

    Thanks Liri,  the last one I tamed came in for 3 weeks became a gorgeous indoor cat, then some people came and asked if we had seen one,  OH said yes, she indoors, they came with a cat basket and took her away, that was 4 years ago and she still comes back here sometimes.

    That must have been tough, Lyn.

    Yes, never mind, she was happy when she was here, she was back the next day, they kept coming for her but now she just pops in for some biscuits, sometimes has a sleep on the bed, then goes home.

    @Liriodendron at my school hockey was classified by us girls as one of the Blood sports.  A fellow form member tripped and her stick split and ripped into her inner thigh!😱 🤢 An ambulance was involved 🤕

    It seems that flat crumpets are pikelets are Scotch pancakes are drop scones. I’ve not made any for quite a while ... Wonky and her brother used to like them for breakfast with fruit and yoghurt.   I might make some again soon ... OH likes them ... probably his Scottish ancestry 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    My first, all girls grammar school played lacrosse, which I loved.  The new, mixed one had hockey for girls and rugby for boys and never the twain shall meet.  The grounds were huge so 2 rugby pitches, two hockey piches and full track and field facilities for summer athetics, tho girls not allowed to do the steeplecahse either, plus a swimming pool, grass tennis courts and tarmac that was either tennis or netball depending on the season.

    Nobody explained the rules for my first game of hockey and I was banished, forever, to play netball.
