 There are many good reasons to live in the north-east of England  but the weather is not one of them.
While the south sunbathed in the warmest days of the year we woke to thick fog and have done so now for a few days. Temperatures are generally cooler but markedly so this last week. That was a shame because my sister was visiting and so we had to resort to going to the pictures, visiting Aunt J and staying home to play with Billy and the new "Bananagrams" game.
Billy tolerates being played with quite well.

But he likes to collect a fee for his part in our entertainment.

And I'm still keen on the bread machine. We roll out a loaf every few days and are pleased enough with it to give a couple of loaves away.
Today I might get round to making dough in the machine and baking it in the oven. A new shape would make a pleasant change.
The campervan is out of hibernation so we shall spend some time getting it ready for the days when the sun shines hereabouts. If that doesn't happen soon we shall just get in it and head south for a spell.

Cheers Gillian

It is so nice to see that your family can visit you now too. Our weather is hopefully going to cool down soon. We are still having hot days every now and then. Billy looks as though he is a little bit cheeky but adorable. I hope you can have some wonderful adventures in your campervan.
