|Portsmouth Harbour 9.00 am this morning|
Well that was a good morning watching TV and working on the laptop and now it is time for lunch. Had a phone call from my son Gervase to say he will be round about 1.30 and he will take me down to Asda to get some shopping done. At 12.30 I have one of the Marks and Spencer mini meals. today it will be braised steak with carrot and Mash Potato. These are only small meals but just right for lunch.
So now it is time to have a shave and get ready for when Gervase arrives. We are only going down to Asda at Fratton so not far to go about 10 minutes by car and I have not got a lot to get as I will be doing the main shop on Tuesday when I go down to the City Centre with Pauline.
While I am waiting for Gervase I will check to see how the Olympic Torch Relay is getting on in this weather. Today it is day 23 and the torch is going from Kirkwall to Lerwick. The Olympic flame was flown into Kirkwall this Morning which is on the Isle of Orkney and is shown here on the steps of St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall where it starts today from.

That went very well actually and I am chuffed that I managed it, the only down side was the amount of people in the store shopping. it was absolutely manic in there today. In fact it took longer to get through the checkout than it did to collect the bits that I needed, anyway that is all done and dusted and we took a drive home along a very deserted and wet Seaside.
Anyway the weather has now taken a turn for the worse and the rain has got heavier and is settled in for the night now according to the weathermen so it is about time I checked the Olympic torch relay to see if there are any more interesting Pictures to post.

So that is about it for today then folks, not a bad day apart from the weather, anyway soon be time to get dinner started I got a nice fresh "Sea Bass Fillet" in Asda today so I will have that with some steamed Cauliflower, Broccoli and New Jersey Royal Potatoes all with a nice cheddar cheese sauce. and I also got a nice piece of Organic Scottish Salmon for tomorrow. Yum, Yum, Yum. so anyhow here is todays day in history from the 10th June 1922.
So until tomorrow I will say ...............................
