The weather has certainly perked up. last weekend (bank holiday) was glorious. We had a walk along the prom at Minnis bay on Monday. The main beach was the busiest we have ever seen it. Lovely to see families having fun with the kiddies building sand castles and eating ice creams (just like we did on a Bank holiday). We had a cuppa and cake in the cafe and watched the wind surfers - some of them clearly novices! Alan insisted on taking a photo using his new 'big boy' phone!

The garden has burst into life this week. The poppies are just spectacular - approx 10 inches in diameter! perhaps we should start cultivating opium - now there's a thought! Irises, roses and aliums (alia?) also bountiful

This week we have changes to hi-speed cable internet (only just available down here) and we have gone from download speeds of between 0.5 and 1 to 20.8 which is brilliant. I even get Ray's daily jokes before he has even sent them!! Alan is delighted because he downloads lots of music which used to take hours.
Special thoughts today to my dear warrior friend Debbie who is having a really difficult time right now but the hospice staff are taking good care of her. Thoughts and prayers are with you Debbie hope you will be home soon. xx
