When it rains

It's summer and it's raining
So our cats sleep on the rug
Just where we walk.
 It's another wet day here, not a problem
 I do love these books by Sue Grafton. 
 I was naughty and got a couple bunches of flowers
Last week at work went quickly, the work load again is very low, I spent alot of time on my phone. Next week my final week is going to be busier, I have not passed too much work over, they want me to carry on as normal until I leave, which might cause them problems if it suddenly gets busy, but it's their plan and I am not challenging it.
It's a day for staying close to home, we did walk to the village and popped into the library, on a wet day I need more books.
We have nothing planned for this afternoon, we are getting Will later, he is on another sleep over, mum and dad have taken him to a local festival, later we will pop and get him whilst they stay much later.
If it is drier tomorrow we have a few things to do in the garden, I have loads of dead flower heads to chop off, we still have a plant in Win's front garden we need to move before the area is dug up for car parking.
My Kiwi and Pomegranate plants are doing well in their bigger pots, both are now in the greenhouse.
We have still loads of harvest, tomatoes, cucumbers, salad leaves and blueberries. The blueberries have done fantastic this summer. We also have loads of blackberries ripening, and late raspberries, I am so pleased to have so much fruit in our small gardens. Plus both my gooseberry bushes are still in full leaf, I am hoping I have sorted the saw fly.

Small starts

The seeds/plants on my desk are all doing well.
The Kiwi and Pomegranate both will be potted up
I have a plumb stone to try next 
My tiny spider plant I got last year has loads of babies
I will pot up some of these 
 The Bones of You was a fantastic read, I honestly could not put the book down
Missing Presumed was good. 
 Our Magnolia tree is in it's second full bloom of the year
 The whole back garden is pleasing to look at. 
I have done so very little since my last post, Saturday I did clean the house, but as we are outside or reading the place does not get very messy. I think the heat is slowing me down, I would rather sit and read, it's cooler.
We did enjoy the tennis, the Ladies final was a good match, I really felt for Cilic, who never really settled into the Gentleman's final, I was hoping for a really long and interesting game.
Other than tennis I have not watched much TV, I was pleased to see Jodie Whittaker as the new doctor, in Doctor Who she is a fantastic actress, I will start watching it again, I never found Peter Capaldi a likable doctor. I have loved Doctor Who all my life.
I have not done any cross stitch for ages, I am hoping in August I find being home will give me more craft time.
We did pop to M&S, for some undies on Sunday, we both decided we had arequirement, plus Next had a huge sale, so I got a couple of nice tops for my holiday in September.
My steps last week were lower, 84,522 for the week, averaging 12074 each day.
