Still on the terrace.
The moment that I decided it was too windy to BBQ and consigned the marinated chicken breasts to the oven, the wind disappeared.
Cool 21 degrees.. A real bonus.

Perfect start to the day.. 36' in the full sun, but gentle SE breeze kept the temperature down to 26 under the parasol.
While tackling a huge orange, a wasp tried to share it with me.
One swipe of the swatter, The Demon Whacker, despatched it .
I must have just stunned it. 15 minutes later, I leapt out of my chair, writhing in agony.
The B u99er had found it's way, surreptitiously, into my shorts and was having it's revenge..in my inside leg region.
Both managers just laughed as I danced, shrieked and cursed, racing inside to get my shorts off.
There are 4 angry puncture marks.. 2inches further north, might have been really serious.
Evidently, only Female wasps sting.. The recommended cure is menthol.
I've rubbed some Vick on ..

Sorry for putting the smile on Paul but it reminded me of when Malcolm got stung a few years ago,we had a nest under the lawn and Malcolm and our neighbour decided to move it because they were putting some new fence posts in, anyway we (me and neighbours wife) stayed in the house with the door closed all of a sudden we heard an almighty shout and what seemed to be French words Malcolm had been stung about 3/4 times we couldn’t stop laughing either Paul! Forgot to mention Malcolm always said it didn’t hurt...now he knows different

Wind dropped, temperature, gentle 26'
Simple Broccoli cheese and Pasta, followed by Nectarines and melon.. Washed down by a superb Monsaraz Red. 2.15€ from the south facing terrace of Lidl.
Surely, it can't get any better, can it..
We've nearly come to terms with being without a motorhome.... Nearly.

Paul, thats a good price for Monsaraz red. I can't remember seeing a Monsaraz in Lidl, maybe maybe not.
I will have to look for it in a few weeks time
Great place Monsaraz and fantastic view from the aire

I’m just waiting for global warming to kick in properly and then I can view the miles of Cheshire vineyards from the ancient hilltop castello of Beeston and wander into Lidl Northwich for my sub £3 exquisite red ............ or not
Rioja de Castello Beeston 🍷 🍷 🍷
I wonder!

They were clearing off the last of the 2017 DOC. To make way for the excellent 2018. That, and a superb, Tradicâo white , has been a godsend, since February.. I reckon they have produced too much.. Somebody has to help them shift it.
They now have these specials, near the entrance.. Just filled up with Alandra red, another quality wine.
The red Casal Garcia, Vinho Verde, at 10%,ABV, is a joy to sup.
I'll try to leave some for you.
Weather..? Still ok, outside, Sarah Vaughan on Antenna 2.

It's grey above Herts right now and about 15°C.

But on a more positive note, I'll be starting my meander down to the New Forest rally later this morning.
Where the forecast is for better weather.

Dry and thin cloud in the Potteries. No rain forecast, so more outside painting for me.
Just getting the outside jobs done while the weather is good and before our autumn tour to galicia and Portugal
