Weather is blindin awful

Rain or shine i will dine.

What an awful wet week its been as if you didn’t notice, good for the gardeners i suppose, and maybe the water companies. I was in Spain a couple of weeks ago, the same time when, here we had a heatwave. Since getting back its been blindin awful. I’m off this weekend and the forecast is for more rain, so its going to be a DIY weekend. Time to do those little jobs around the house that i have been putting off for months, years in some cases.

You are never done improving your home, i can think of dozens of things that could be replaced, painted, etc, etc. On  my list of must do’s for this weekend is to measure up for an awning that will sit over my patio. “An Awning in Scotland are you crazy!”  you might think. Well I’m fed up with being rained off during  BBQs, having to run indoors with all the food, plates, etc, etc.  I have had to do this a couple of times this week. I’m going to add a heater and lighting to0, so when the dark nights come in, i will still be able to have alfresco dinning in the evening.

I will turn my little garden to the rear of my home into my little Spanish resort. And this is where I’m not crazy. I’m going to buy a good quality awning, fully cassette for protection when not in use, motorised with a wind sensor, a  good idea especially with living in Scotland. Professionally fitted as i don’t want it coming down on top of me and my guest that would just ruin the party. And of course i will be wanting  a good guarantee. I will find all i need right here…
