It's a pity if you can't view today's Sunday Song, as it has a very nice little video to go with it. Anyway, you've got a bonus = you have TWO "thisisme's" today! I know, I know - you can have too much of a good thing. Eeeek!
What else can I talk about today then? Well, poor old Devon has been battered by storm force winds and severe gales all this week, and there are about eighty flood alerts out there at the moment. The following photo is of our outdoor Lido on Plymouth Hoe, and, as you can see, the sea has come right over the top of it. You can just about see the tall fountain in the middle of the pool, so it will give you some idea of the amount of water that is in there.
I'm sure that my American friends will be thinking that we British talk about the weather an awful lot! Well, yes, we do, I'm afraid. Pretty boring, uh?!
I had the most wonderful e-mail from one of my bloggy friends in America when I woke up this morning. I won't name her, because she might not want me to, but the gist of it was that wouldn't it be good if we could meet up. (Actually, I've just noticed that it was also left as an open comment, so I can tell you that it was Pam from EmptyNester!) That sounds like a pipedream really, doesn't it?! BUT, I have to admit that, although I have never been to America, I am thinking that it would be wonderful if I could get over there and meet some of you. Crikey, I bet that's scared some of you now!! Eeeek!
As I told this friend, I would have to get over there pretty soon, before I become too ancient. Trouble would be, of course, the distances involved. We are such a small island over here, and it's strange to think that you even have different time zones over there. Anyway, food for thought methinks!
Just look at this photo of Eli & Ruby. Apparently, Alison was working in the kitchen, when they came down stairs all dressed up and giggling away. They had raided her wardrobe! I think it's lovely that they have now got to the age when they are really starting to enjoying each other's company, instead of getting upset if one plays with the other's toys!
I'm a bit worried about Eli, that he choose mummy's sparkly hat to wear! Hee Hee! My daughter said it was the way he had put it on, tucking all his hair up underneath.
Here's another one when they were getting ready to go to bed. Note, Ruby is wearing Eli's Thomas the Tank pyjamas, which he has grown out of.
I hope you are all keeping well wherever you are, and taking good care of yourself. See you again soon my friends.
