I'm happy to hear that fun was had by all at the sleepover Lisa  😊 Yes, the gathering of videos are time consuming, that's why I decided to work on them a bit now. I think men are just like that 😉

That's why the men in my family do that... they know I know how to mend them 🤔  I hope you get to enjoy your sunshine Bren ☀

I didn't get the mending done today, DH wanted to get out of the house for a bit, so we went to Walmart. I came home and cut up a bunch of strawberries for desert tonight. 🍓 Now I'm going to make some of those little stuffed sweet peppers. 🤗

Bren, I hope you enjoy the sunshine this week.  We had no rain yesterday and just a sprinkling today so for the time being we are all sunshine around here.

Suzi, I have been reading recipes made with fresh strawberries and now I want some!  We had a watermelon over the weekend.  Sounds as though DH is getting along just fine after his surgery.

DH is obviously feeling better Suzi seeing he wanted to go out.  Like Lisa, I now want some strawberries, you have started a strawberry recipe hunt.

Sounds like your weather is getting back to normal Lisa, I hope it doesn't get too hot for you.

It's cooler here today and a little cloudy but no rain is forecast.

I found strawberries for .99 and decided to get 2 of them 🍓 🍓 I could sure go for some good watermelon too!  🤗

A strawberry recipe hunt sounds fun 😊 I could use a little cooler weather 😰

Yes, DH is feeling pretty good, so now if we can finish this mountain of eye drops, it will be all good 💦   My strawberries the first night I cut them up with bananas and added some blueberries and topped it with whipped cream. Last night we put it over ice cream  😊  We have a little left for tonight and I can hardly wait! I got started on the pants mending today, but I have 4 pair, so I have them ready to go back to tomorrow 😉

Yes she did start a strawberry recipe hunt!  I found one that I want to make for Father's Day this Sunday.  I could also use some cooler weather.  We are into our summer temperatures and humidity now so when you go outside you feel as if you are in an oven.

The strawberry treats you made sound very yummy.  I love all the fruits that are available in the summer.  Guess you got a good start on the mending today.  I have a few things I would like to send you lol

You had a bargain with the strawberries Susie and just look at how many different ways you have served them up.  Sounds like you have started a mending marathon I hope DH doesn't find you a load more things when you have finished the ones in hand. If not, Lisa and I can provide you with a few things lol

It definitely sounds like your weather is back to normal Lisa, I bet you miss the rain.

I told Beth about the strawberries and she has decided to make strawberry shortcake for father's day  From the sounds of things it will be about 1,000 calories a bite.

Yes, I'm tired of the heat and humidity already myself 😰  I've been mending things my whole life, believe me! I'm loving the fruits right now too Lisa 😊

I was having fun mixing up the fruits and they all tasted good Bren 🤗  I'm sure he could find all kind of things for me to mend, but just a few at a time please 😉

I hope you both enjoy your strawberries this weekend 🍓😋 DH wanted to get out again today, so the only thing I got done was to wash and hang out the bed sheets. Oh well 😉 I think I get this weekend off from calling my brother 🤗  That would be nice!

Bren, tell Beth I will send her some of my strawberry dessert and she can send me some of her shortcake.  Hers sounds better at 1,000 calories a bite lol

Good for DH wanting to get out again but I guess it's not so good for your chores.  I love bed sheets that have been hung out to dry.  It will be nice for you to get another night off from calling your brother.

Good to go out again and have another rest from your chores Suzi, at least you managed to get your bedding washed it always smells so nice when dried in the open air.  It will be nice to have a weekend free from phone calls.

I shall get Beth to send you some shortcake Lisa but I don't think the cream will last the journey.  Still that will be less calories to worry about lol.

Rhian has been packing up her things at her flat as she is going home on Monday.  Bruce and I are helping her get her things home (he has a van).  The computer and electrical stuff will go in my car so they don't get shaken around.  She will be back in August for graduation.  Ellen will be back home soon (in time for her twenty first) and it sounds like we shall be going to Nottingham to help move her stuff.

Yeah, I'm not getting much done, but it's all good  😉  I'm looking forward to my time off from the phone Lisa 😊

The sheets were nice and fresh ☀  It sounds like your going to be doing a lot of moving assistance Bren 🙃

I didn't get much done today either...DH had to go get some lunch meat and a few things, so he wanted me to go too 🙃 It looks like bananas this week... DH wants banana pudding tonight and I'm making some banana bread this weekend. Wish me luck on the banana bread in the toaster oven, I haven't tried that yet 🤔
