    The biggest dragonfly I have ever seen! I think she was laying eggs as she spent ages with her tail in the water

    That is fantastic. I can sit for ages by the pond, mesmerized by the beauty of nature. Such a tranquil place, my bit of heaven.

    If anyone is trapped in the house and in need of a rummage though the internet and wants to join in this exciting bargain hunt they are called

    Frontline Spot on Cat - you get 6 pipettes of 0.5ml in a box and so far the cheapest I've found works out at 3.83 each.
    I was supposed to order them at the weekend to be here today but lethargy overcame me.

    We have not had flea problems for years, usually they are all combed 3 or 4 times a week and apart from odd ones its never been an issue but this peculiar weather is not helping ...

    I've also got to wash bedding and think about car insurance and then work out when Sophies cat insurance is due .... the level of excitement in this house by the end of the day will be at fever pitch especially if we also do a trip to sainsburys for recycling and cashback items to round it off

    has anyone had any dealings with DuckDuckGo, a search engine that hides us, does not profile us.

    It is fine although one slight niggle is that search results can sometimes be a bit USA biased but it's not that much of an issue. At least you know it's not tracking your every move for its own ends...

    My next question is, do I remove anything from computer before downloading please? My husband thinks I'm mad wanting to be part of a 'foreign' search engine . Men!
