I would love to attend a drumming workshop ... I've always wanted to play Bodhrán and my favourite song with a lot of drumming is Paul Simon's Obvious Child ... I also love the sound and rhythm of steel drums

yes Sunflower joined and posted a bit, but hasn’t posted here or on her blog for a while

Have eaten stuffed peppers and salad, feel pretty stuffed myself

It’s still raining but never mind

Couple of months ago I was going to buy new slippers, but never got round to it. Bmachine een looking at videos today of exercises for plantar fasciitis, all the instructors say to wear slippers with foot support. Found some washable wool ones I really like but £££, will review in the morning

The VAR decision. Not a consensus by the TV team.

Well done I agree! But have pity on me ... I will be spending most of tomorrow with DS ... he’s been a Chelsea supporter since he was seven years old ... :roll:

i have a bodhrán. you could probably find an instruction vid on you tube and learn with a washing up bowl and a bit of doweling.
have you thought of finding a local samba band? they can be fun - and therapeutic. we used to play. they should supply you with ear plugs!

Bu where can you get the forearm bone of an Englishman to play the Bodhran with? My English teacher Mr. Walsh (from Derry) always insisted that it sounded best. :D.

SG, love it!!! I'd love a Pun jab. Any jab, to be honest! :lol:

Good Morning Campers, They don't go in for drumming around here. Luckily bouzouki practise is not noisy ;)

Morning all. They've stopped quite a lot of samba playing in schools round here. Even with specialist ear defenders it's been shown that hearing loss is quite a consequence for youngsters. And of course Covid has completely put paid to musical gatherings at present, even in schools. It's just beginning to start up again but it will be a long time before people feel confident I think. If I had to do drumming I think I mght be looking at Dhol.

Been to the park. Met my Indian pharmacist friend. He has two children who work as doctors in different hospitals - one at St Thomas's and one in Bedford. They are very, very worried about the Indian variant. :cry: :cry: :cry:

I still haven't made it to a Garden Centre so that is today's task. Not having gardened for two years I'm feeling a little daunted.

Have a good day all.

Good Morning campers. I did have a titter at the news clip SG, albeit racist. :lol: A the moment the Sun is out :o but we have yet more heavy rain forecast for later. I have some veg to plant out his morning. A tray of radish, beetroot, purple sprouting broccoli, spinach and a few lettuce, so I will be in the greenhouse for a while, a least I won't get wet in there. :)
Dinner tonight will be roast chicken, roast potatoes, steamed carrots, broccoli and cauliflower, with gravy followed by the rest of the strawberries and raspberries with cream. :yum

Morning. An abysmal night's sleep, but i think that's par for the course for the next few weeks.
I got as far as the role of monks in the cheese history of the British isles. It eventually lulled me to sleep, until the startlingly loud dawn chorus. There's no traffic here, so the birdsong is beautiful. I wish i could identify them all.

Morning. I had a bad night as well, but I often do on Saturdays, for some reason. SG we must be in sycnh re. bad nights. I woke up at 6 but managed to get back to sleep again for a short while (after feeding the meowing cats...)
Quite a bit of yesterday morning was spent trying to sort out the greenhouse. It’s coming on Wednesday (They offered this on Friday. Original eta July!) I was told if we didn't accept this slot then it could be August or later :evil: A similar situation with its construction (separate company - I spent quite a few hours trying to find someone to do it.) We are booked in for bank holiday Monday (two days after we get back from Wales) - it was that, or mid July. The glass arrives without packaging or protection, so I need to work out how to store it while we are away. Apparently it must not come into contact with concrete.

OH is annoyed by all this because the neighbour wants us to fix a fence panel next to wear the greenhouse is going. (This was requested a long long time ago...) So now we need to do it asap/before the greenhouse is installed, but have no idea how... and very little time to sort it out because of the holiday and husband having so much work to do he has to work today (funny how this always happens before we are about to go on holiday :? !) Basically it's fixed to concrete posts with arris rails (you learn something everyday and all that...) and the bit that goes in the hole has rotted. Anyone done this?!

While it is exciting to be getting a greenhouse I could be doing without all this right now... It is good timing for tomatoes though, some of which I thought I would put in there.
Right I need to get out and do things in the garden before it rains. First job is installing a wire for two clematis plants that are now in bud.



p.s. I have done drumming too. Not really by choice, I have to say, but I quite liked it. I have a decent short-term audio memory (better than my visual one... apart from identifying actors!) so I was ok at it (remembering rhythms) and enjoyed improvising. I could only do it with my hands though. My one attempt with drumsticks (sibling used be keyboard player and singer in a band and lived with the drummer - they had all the equipment set up in their cellar, including a drum kit), I was hopeless. I couldn't make my wrists go floppy enough.

Good morning all :D :mug:

If I'd known you two were awake at that time SloeGin and Herbi we could've had a chat :lol: :wave: ... my head was whirring with car stuff (insurance, selling Lola etc etc) ... no real worries, just thoughts going round and round in circles and getting stuck there ... in the end I made myself a warm drink and read for a while ... then slept well until 6;30 ish. Now I'm ready for DS to pick me up later ... the car's about 50 miles away so not too bad, but son has to come from Ipswich first. Anyway, OH is staying home as there's not a lot of room in the back of DS's car ... his arm's a bit sore and has a swollen gland but otherwise no side effects from his jab yesterday. I've prepped veg for tonight ... lamb chops, Charlotte potatoes, cauli in white sauce (already made to heat though) and fresh mint sauce made ... so the timing of our meal can be really flexible.

Plants (toms/chillis/squashes etc) are all watered, and the runner beans are in the cold frame for the day ... hopefully they can go outside by the end of the month, if not sooner ... it just needs to warm up a bit ...
