    I've spent hours trawling travel insurance sites for That Sister & Thank You to the suggested sites :A



    Only managed to actually get one quote for £1500 :o


    Other Sister says we should go somewhere nice here instead :)


    Norfolk Broads?

    We have so many very beautiful places in the UK that you would both enjoy exploring - think of areas of the country that you would like to revisit or new places to explore or events you would like to go to eg The Edinburgh fringe, the tall ships race, the Norfolk Broads, food festivals all over the place, Hogmany, last night of the proms, Edinburgh tattoo, carol services in York Minster,
    Or what about different types of accommodation - from yurts, to Romany caravans to 5 star luxury hotels, canal barges, luxury boats on the Thames, railway carriages, Scottish castles ...
    Or days out type activates - steam trains with meals, hot air ballooning, walking with lamas, cocktail making events, gin distilleries, posh afternoon teas in nice hotels, tourist boats down the ouse ...

    Make a massive list of even the most stupid of ideas, let your imagination run wild, let it run and run and only then start to shortened it, eliminating the most silly or impossible to organise ideas ..

    Morning paw sniffers:D

    Hello AJ:wave::wave::wave:

    We have a cloudy morning:) which suits me as I need to get down the allotment.

    Exciting times for my little patch. As DD and DS have flown the nest, my allotment is too big for me. I give more away than I use which is fine but there's more to do than I can cope with. I'm giving the use of it over to a young couple with a lovely little family and I will just use what I need. They are beyond excited and I am relieved. They know nothing about gardening.....but hey.....did any of us when we started:D

    Our intention....jointly .......is to whip it into shape for next year:)

    There's lots of work to do:D

    This is so lovely, so you are sort of going to share the allotment - giving them some of your expertise and encouragement and weeding skills and just harvesting what you need ...

    Just today I've come home with raspberries, potatoes, peas, beetroot, courgette and eggs :D pretty good way to dispel the hangover :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    I didn't touch the 3rd plot today. 29 degrees outside the gates, 37 degrees inside the gates :eek: only a fool would dig in those temperatures :cool:

    Fwiw did the Fizzy Pop lollies compare against M?
    I assume they haven't picked up the Oat Granola vs M?
