Yes, today the weather seems more normal where I am. The winds have died down and it's a proper October temperature so cardi on!

I think we sometimes accidentally throw away teeny weeny pattern pieces with the bits of tissue paper left over from cutting out the patternn. Either that or there's a pattern gremlin who nicks them!

There are pictures of the strange skies we have been experiencing on the BBC website.

The sun has gone back to its normal colour where I am and we have lost that eerie light!

Good luck with the kitchen fitting, RD. Looks like a nice kitchen and I'm sure muv will keep the fitters in order. I think I need to hire her as project manager when I next  have some work done in the house.

I sympathise with your shift pattern conundrum. Don't know what the answer is but I'm sure you will get to the right decision on due course.

According to the BBC website the strange red sun is caused by Ophelia sucking up sand from the Sahara!

Goodness, Greybird that's quite a story from the 1987 storm. Hope there's nothing like that for you this time. Who could forget the immortal lines from Michael Fish: 'There will be no hurricane.' The winds are starting to whistle up the Cheshire gap but I don't expect we will have it badly here. I too had noticed the orange sun through the clouds.

I cut out on the dining room table which means I have to clear up.when someone wants to eat a meal. I quite like cutting out. As I do the odd thing in tartan I often have a bit of pattern matching to do which I also quite like even though it is time consuming.

Definitely bbq weather. Had a nice walk at Hare Hill in Alderley Edge. Couldn't get into the Alderley Edge car park further up.the road as the nice weather had brought everyone out.

The Edge itself is just about the only thing that passes for a hill in this part of Cheshire and is one of the (many !) places where Merlin and the knights of the round table are allegedly buried. Just checking the legend. Apparently King Arthur and his knights are waiting in a cave under the Edge for the last battle to save England. Well, that's a comfort then.

I never like to hear of fabric shops closing but maybe there will be some bargains.

I see it is a US (?) site ( it is in dollars - didn't stop to check which type) so watch out for customs charges if you order from the UK.

Just watching a programme on BBC4 on the hidden dangers of the post-war home. The rather glam presenter has just walked through the set of a 1950s home remarking how it was like her grandparents' home. Errr it was a lot more modern than my parents' home I can tell you!
And now we have Barry Bucknell putting hardboard over nice Victorian doors which was exactly what my Dad did. Our home was certainly 'Bucknellised' for those of you of a certain age!
