Afternoon Tea With Queen Victoria

Tea With Queen Victoria

Just imagine if you could be transported back in time and have Afternoon Tea with Queen Victoria. This is what it felt like for us a few weeks ago when our best friends won a competition in the local paper to visit Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, which […]

Memories Of Cars I Have Owned

Memories of cars I have owned came back to me this morning on my way to work as Radio Solent had listeners calling in if they had ever given names to their cars, or indeed other modes of transport. This immediately set me thinking about the closest I have come […]

Nothing Wrong With My Poo!

A few weeks ago the NHS sent me a screening kit for bowel cancer which I had to return in the mail. I got the results today and can claim “there’s nothing wrong with my poo!” Bowel cancer screening is something that the NHS (National Health Service) in the UK […]

Digital Tyre Inflator

My Digital Tyre Inflator Saved My Bacon This Morning

In the Spring I bought a digital tyre inflator because I was fed up with having to go to the service station every couple of weeks to keep tyres on my car pumped up. The rear tyres keep losing air, and this inflator has proved to be incredibly useful, so […]

Beer, Devon

A Pint Of Ale In Beer

Heaven In Devon

Half Term In Devon

We are spending the last week in October in Devon. It’s also half term week, and since we can only go away when the schools are on a break, it does limit us to when we can take trips, but staying in a converted farm building which is off the […]

Outside Our Kitchen Door

A Frog In A Bucket

Tuesday morning I got ready to go to work, and as usual I looked outside the kitchen door, which is where we have been leaving a tray of peanuts for our night time visitors, and I saw that they remained untouched. Disappointed at not having had anyone come to eat […]

Why Buy A Trail / Wildlife Camera?

Why would I want to buy a trail / wildlife camera? This is a question that I am sure many people might ask, but unless you live somewhere where there are no wild birds or animals around, or you just aren’t interested in nature, there are so many reasons why a trail […]

A fox in our garden

Our New Wildlife Category

We recently purchased a trail camera so that we could find out for sure what wildlife was visiting our garden at night, and the videos that we have got made me thing that maybe it’s time to write and tell you about it, and to create a new Wildlife category […]
