|What is there for dinner?|
When I returned my cold was beginning to manifest itself so I made myself a fruit salad- and went off to bed early.
Before leaving for work, I asked Cairis to do a bit of hoovering for me. I wasn't too impressed when I got home to find that she hadn't done it!. In the end she was vindicated though, as the hoover had comprehensively died. It was an old Dyson, which I had had for years- and the call out charge to repair it was more than the cost of a brand new one. I went over to the supermarket and found one which met my needs- something that could handle cat hair was top of the list :-) I found a super little Electrolux which is actually more powerful than the old one, so happy all round.

Thursday 2nd August
A day for housework! I decided to take the plates on my dresser down to wash and dust. The weather forecast was for isolated showers- what they didn't tell us was that the showers would be absolute downpours. My poor little cat was out in one of them , and she really hates being wet.
When she comes in wet she drags her towel to me and cries until I dry her. Everyone is amazed that Ebony does this, but her sister Maisie doesn't mind being wet at all.
Friday 3rd August
Thank goodness it's the weekend. We are still having those bizarre showers, although not too often, and the rest of the time is warm and sunny. Spent a lot of today glued to the TV watching the Olympic games as the British athletes and sports-people did really well
In the evening we decided to go out West for a pizza, and parked just as a rainbow developed over the bay. My husband said that I wouldn't be able to photograph it, as he didn't think it would come out. So I tried...
While we were eating, the tide was rising fas. The surf is fantastic on the West coast and I was surprised to see a little boat bobbing about on the high tide. The movement made me feel queasy just watching it!
This is the promenade of St Brelade's Bay. You can see the rainbow in the background. I took the first picture when we went in to the restaurant- and the second picture when we left. There are lightbulbs strung all the way round the coast.
