    Afternoon. Great you are enjoying your time off Indie. Good luck with comps.

    Sheils hope you have had a good journey today.

    Yesterday we took SIL to Chartwell for lunch. It did rain but only a bit after we were back in the car. Many roads near there have trees with tops joining across the road so pleasant journey.

    Today she has gone to her sister’s for a party. DD1 has gone with her but GS said he wanted to stay here. He keeps beating DH at Connect 4. We were supposed to be going to the park but it’s so heavy here feels like a storm is coming.

    Hope everyone is having a good weekend,

    Morning Everyone,

    I do not post a lot in here. I actually win very little . I had the pleasure of going to the This Morning Live as I won the tickets to go. Did a bit of shopping. Also included in the ticket was centre stage show with Eammon and Ruth and Rylan.

    This was only my second win this year.

    Back to work today. Weather looks dull and it feels cold.

    Have a good day everyone

    Morning everyone,


    Had a lovely day yesterday visiting Dollar Glen and Castle Campbell although we had forgotten how steep the hills were! Visited DS2 and GF Was a shame DS2 had to work as we had meant to go out for dinner with them. We had a lovely meal at Beefeater though and a free bottle of wine using our points. Heading up to Inverness today using the scenic route through Glencoe and Fort William and along Loch Ness. I love seeing Glencoe, my favourite non water view in UK I think.



    Your win sounds lovely I Love Comps. Not been winning much either although really happy with my Forest Holiday win.


    Must get myself organised as DH studying map so he can argue with the Sat Nav!
    Good Luck all.

    I hope everyone's in fine fettle on this glorious Monday! It's

    night. soleilnuage.gif


    Crikey leanfun, the last 10 days or so seem to have whizzed
    by. It sounds as if your SIL has had a wonderful time & made
    the most of every day. :j

    World Bee Day | 20 May

    The importance of celebrating World Bee Day

    Observing World Bee Day on 20 May each year will draw attention
    to the essential role bees and other pollinators play in keeping
    people and the planet healthy. It provides an opportunity for
    governments, organizations, civil society and concerned citizens
    everywhere to promote actions that will protect and enhance
    pollinators and their habitats, improve their abundance and
    diversity, and support the sustainable development of beekeeping.

    The date for this observance was chosen as it was the day Anton
    Janša, a pioneer of modern apiculture, was born. Janša came from
    a family of beekeepers in Slovenia, where beekeeping is an
    important agricultural activity with a long-standing tradition.

    The proposal set forth by the Republic of Slovenia, with the
    support of Apimondia, the International Federation of Beekeepers’
    Associations and FAO, to celebrate World Bee Day on 20 May each
    year met with approval by the United Nations General Assembly in
    2017.

    World Bee Day intends to shine a light on the habitat of pollinators
    to improve the conditions for their survival so that bees and other
    pollinators may thrive..... [Cont'd] >>

    If you’ve been residing under a rock or in ‘Game of Thrones’ exile
    for the past month, you might have missed that fact that London
    has been the focal point for the fight against climate change
    thanks to the Extinction Rebellion protesters. And those green,
    environment-loving vibes are set to continue into the summer.
    Brent Council is getting ready to plant seven miles of wildflowers
    to help London’s dwindling bee population.

    A recent study has shown that more than 97 percent of the UK’s
    wildflower meadows have disappeared since World War II. To
    counter the effects of this floral decline, Brent Council in north
    London is sowing 22 wildflower meadows in the borough’s parks
    and open spaces.

    The council is ploughing plots that have been picked as meadow
    areas and, once the ground is ready, seeds including ragged robin,
    cowslip and common poppy are to be sown to encourage more
    visits from pollinating insects (and brighten up the place nicely,
    too.) [Cont'd] >>

    Grow a wildflower meadow, and create a lively feeding and nesting
    ground for insects, birds and small animals.

    The majestic flowers and grasses, bursting with colour, will be an
    attractive feature in your garden.

    Our countryside was once full of meadows bursting with a
    gorgeous variety of flowering plants, supporting butterflies,
    insects, farmland birds and other wildlife.

    But since the 1930s, we have lost over 99% of what are called
    'unimproved grasslands', and those that are left are fragmented.
    However, you can create something of the same feel in your own
    garden.

    Preparing the ground and removing the weeds may take several
    weeks, and you can do this at any time of year. But autumn is the
    best month for sowing your seeds..... [Cont'd] >>

    Morning, that 10 days went quick leanfun, glad your SIL had good weather whilst here.
    I had to laugh at your DH argueing with the sat nav sheils. The question is did he win,lol
    Thanks for the links Alfie, i love bees and can watch them for hours flying from plant to plant.
    I am off out soon to get my hair cut,just my usual bop style so it's easy and i don't have to faff around with it for work.Hope you all have a lucky day

    :hello: Good afternoon all


    Phew! It's a warm day here, sun's still shining away & I
    managed to do a bit of light weeding/general pottering
    around this afternoon, then I had to come back indoors -
    too hot outside to do much of anything really. Now sat
    enjoying a cuppa after drinking a gallon of water, or
    thereabouts! :D :rotfl::rotfl:


    Had a beautiful forest walk this morning, lots of newborn
    foals around - very cute. Also got some food provisions
    from local shops & attended my appointment re having
    blood extracted :eek: (or as my kids say ..... my annual
    MOT!). :p


    The lady doing the bloods was really lovely but I was
    astounded to hear that at least 4-5 people missed their
    appointments and didn't even have the courtesy of ringing
    to let the clinic know that they were unable to attend for
    whatever reason. Makes me so mad - another reason why
    the NHS is struggling! The lady thought it would be an
    excellent idea for the NHS to start getting tougher with
    these people such as introducing a fine (similar to Dental
    appointments) & I was in full agreement. Bring it on! :j


    You're most welcome indie re bee links. I love watching
    them too, always so busy!


    Sadly, not good news for the bee population at present ...

    ^^ Brilliant link re solitary bees - I've seen quite a few of these
    buzzing about in my garden. 1abeille.gif



    Have a lovely evening all and please take care, whatever
    your plans.

    Evening all. SIL is safely home in LA and we are home too. The Classic Lodge near Winsor was good. It’s quite in the country. We had a nice cream tea when we arrived on Monday and then SIL wanted to go out for a walk but the road had no pavement or verges so she decided it was too dangerous. She and I walked around the hotel grounds. They have some lawn with flower beds with lots of lavender with bees. The rest of the grass was to meadow with paths cut through. Alfie you would have loved it.

    Dinner was a mix up on first night DH was tired and didn’t read the menu properly. He ordered lamb. But didn’t like the look of what was underneath it. So I stopped my vegetables with his which were very spicy. SIL ordered a different fish but without something Spanish. Her plate came full of potatoes which she doesn’t eat. Last night for DH and I we had brilliant meals. Win was great and SIL paid for our first night.
    It was a good break for us as a DH still can’t walk very far. After dropping SIL off at Heathrow yesterday we went into Windsor and found a car park near castle we could hear the band for changing of the guard but just missed seeing them.

    Back home I can’t believe it’s half term next week and DD2 is coming with little ones on Saturday night. So a couple of days to prepare.

    Hope everyone is well and good luck.
