The Sky at Night

Thanks for the "get well" wishes - still not feeling 100% yet but getting there.  Weather today hasn't helped much either, after a couple of days of torrential rain we had sunshine all day long, but it's been very close and clammy too, and then this evening the rain came back, along with a brilliant orange sunset and stormy black clouds.  Even a rather splendid rainbow, with the "bow" arching right across the sky outside our house - I grabbed my camera and tried to take a couple of pics, but they don't really do it justice, but it's so rare we see a rainbow these days, it was worth a shot!

If you look carefully above the rooftops in the centre of this photo, you can just make out the top of the Blackpool  
Tower - during the Illuminations we can watch all the lights flashing up and down it, from our bedroom window.

Apparently, I may lose my blog background on Friday, unless I connect with the "Cutest Blog on the Block" site (my background provider) and select a new one (something to do with them becoming hugely successful - it is a great site I have to say - and having to make "technical"(?) changes).  Unfortunately, I've just tried linking to them and it ain't having it, keeps coming up with a database error (maybe the site's crashed if everybody's trying to update their backgrounds!), so I'll have to keep trying again tomorrow ..... if not, come Friday, my blog may look very bare ..... :o(


  1. Hi Heather
    They say rainbows are very healing & I think this one was sent just for you! Best wishes for a speedy recovery.xx
    I saw the Tower on your photograph. Can't wait to show & tell the boys in the morning! We adore coming to Blackpool. :)
    Good Luck with your background. Hope you can sort something out.xx
    Thank You for your lovely blog comment & for becoming my latest follower!
    Wishing you a lovely weekend. Gez.xx

  2. I saw the rainbow too. Wasn't it vibrant. Did you see the second one aswell? Amazing how much rain we have had since the hosepipe ban! I managed to change my background yesterday only for everything to go black last night, then it all suddenly appeared again. So keep trying. By the way, parrots and dragonflies rule at mine just now!!! Take care and rest up.
    Luv Joanne xx
