It was so sunny from morning to night today but the wind has been blowing.
My very thinning hair isnt liking the wind, but it does make it look thicker as it is blown all over the place.
The has been Lightning strikes across the United Kingdom but we never had any in East Kent so we were so lucky.
I put the washing out on the line and it dried within half an hour. We used to call that blanket drying weather when we had blankets. Now its all Duvets but we cant get them into washing machines.
Had lunch and then a nice run out as Ray wanted a watering can for filling the M/Home up when on sites and the water tap is awkward to get to so it isnt always easy to use the hose pipe to refill.
I just walked Louis around at the garden centre but Ray couldnt find a flatish one as they are more shaped and on the round style. We need to get it in a back box.
So back to B&Q and he found what he wanted there. I walked Louis onto the rugby field so he could play with his ball but he acted weird as there were school boys sitting around. He gets sort of shy at times like that. So he had a bit of a run but was happy when I turned around to go and meet Ray as he came out of the shop.
As I got into the car the door blew shut on my swollen ankle Ouch!!!!! It doesnt hurt as it is numb anyway but the swelling wasnt wanted.
Got home and sat down both of us are tired from the weekend so its nice to just relax.
Cooked Salmon for dinner and Louis had some as well. I never knew he liked salmon.
We have had the new Recycling bins delivered today. so many Im in a muddle so I will have to practice this week and hope I get it right. It seems as if I will have to do a special rubbish wash up as everything will need to be clean, no putting anything out in sacks so It will even mean washing bins up as well. I wonder if we could get a reduction in rates as we are doing all the work now.

As if my life is complicated enough, But I will soon get the hang of it or my rubbish will pile up where they wont take it away because I have made mistakes !!!
The wind has calmed down now and the sun is shinning I have really loved this summer even if we couldnt always get away it has been the sort of summer you dream of.
Prince Charles and Camilla visited Whitstable Oyster Festival then he went onto Chatham.
The Prince of Wales was given a tour of Chatham Historic Dockyard’s newest attractions on his visit to Kent today.
Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall spent time at the Dockyard
I hope all the Asbestos has gone from there now. That was where my story started as Ray worked there.
While Prince Charles was being given a short tour and met with volunteers and staff, The Duchess of Cornwall visited the Railway Workshop to meet young children taking part in a school holiday workshop.
Lilly Mayor, seven, from Rainham, was selected to present the Duchess with flowers on her arrival at the pirate playtimes session.
She said: “I was really excited and really happy. I have never met a Royal before and I really wanted to give her the roses.”
The royal couple then both visited the No.1 Smithery gallery which opened in 2010.
There was just enough time for Camilla to view the photographic exhibition Exploring Antarctica: The Final Expeditions of Scott and Shackleton.
At the end of the visit, they both unveiled a plaque to commemorate the day and Prince Charles was presented with a children’s swing for the newborn Prince George. It was made at the Dockyard using timbers from the Victorian sloop HMS Gannet and rope from the ropery.
I had a rope from the ropery up my stairs at our house in Lordswood, it was great as hand rail.
