    No gadgets here - no room for any really - just a kettle, microwave and toaster on the worktops and a liquidiser and a hand held mixer in the cupboard. Suits my minimalist style.

    No spares, but there's a cash stash handy if needed.

    We have a kettle, toaster, Tassimo, SodaStream, Slow Cooker, Nutribullet, Microwave ... out in the kitchen . Plus then a toasted sandwich maker, popcorn maker, blender, mixer ... I am sure there are other appliances in the cupboard too. That said, we use all the above .

    And Mr Savage behind us now has an air soft gun. Spent yesterday listening to him firing it.
    We keep finding the pellets in our garden
    Looked up legal stuff & he can fire in his garden but not let the pellets ricochet into other properties..

    Geo caching this morning, tiring work indeed but good fun.

    While I'm waiting for th3 rest of my lot to get back to hotel I'm just having a nosey almost bought an ice cream machine, the day is young as yet

    Can't believe how quickly time has gone, late, late nights and late mornings. Good job breakfast in th3 VIP ends very late


    I had a great chuckle the other night, doing an mhoc, don't know how many posts I did but I do remember what I said A fun end to a great evening out p.

    So, I'm missing the yogurts I see, oh well, ther3 will be another time, another day.

    Hope everyone is well and enjoying some sunshine.

    Hugs to the Elite poorly and to those feeling low in mind and body. Your in my thoughts, even whilst I'm sitting in the shade sipping a Mojito

    I myself have done target shooting.
    I was just concerned about my pets getting hurt being so close.

    Another thing to remember is that if any dispute involves the police it needs to be disclosed when/if you come to sell your property.
    I had a dispute with my stupid neighbour over parking, after a couple of "discussions" I gave up and told him to go to the police.
    He did, so now it is on record that (in the eyes of the law) we are both dubious neighbours. I knew it would happen, but then I wont be trying to sell before him. Shame.
    The police told him I was completely and utterly right, which of course made him even more upset. Shame.
