I don't know if other houses have the same problem with uninvited guests but our house is FULL of spiders.

I really do not like spiders but I just can't bring myself to kill them. Today I was hoovering downstairs and everywhere I went there were spiders - the ones with long thin legs, so I would stop hoovering and give them time to scurry away, now I am wondering if I should kill them as there really seems to be more and more of them each day.

Losing weight is great and loose clothes are good too but when it comes to loose rings that is another matter altogether - especially when they fall off.

Some years ago Geoffrey bought me a small gold band when my Wedding ring no longer fitted me and now it is lost. I have searched high and low in the house, even the washing machine filter and hoover bag have been searched, with no luck. I have come to the conclusion that it must have dropped off my finger when I was out of the house.

I often stand and look out at our garden as this time of the year it is full of birds and watching the baby birds learning to fly is funny. But today when I looked out I saw something unexpected.

I noticed a movement on my neighbour's roof and when I looked closely I saw it was a grey squirrel. He was sitting on the "spine" of the roof, he went too and fro for a good while and then disappeared! I know they are great climbers but I have never seen one on a roof before.
