Geoffrey opened the compost bin today to put some more organic material on it and found to his horror an ant colony. We just could not leave it and had to kill off the ants as it is right up against everything. I have never seen so many ants before and am still itchy thinking about it!

Went out today and forgot my phone, I felt unsettled and out of touch, funny how you get used to some things. Came home and sat down at the computer and "chatted" to my sister in Lanzarote on line, then exchanged texts with Adam who is in Chicago on his way to Arizona, is'nt life interesting and all without moving out of my chair!

The sun shone today for a short while! When the sun broke out I went out to the garden just to take the rays and enjoy the visitors to the garden. We let out herbs and some veg grown wild and flower as we found that the bees love them - so when the sun broke out today a lot of bees landed on our flowers and I went to have a look. I found that there were four types of bees buzzing on the flowers on the sage. There was one huge black bee, another two normal size bees, one with two stripes and another with one stripe but then I suddenly saw this tiny bee, I have never seen such a small bee before, when "he" came to a flower he disappeared completely into the petals!


Called into my local chemist today and was greeted by "saw Geoffrey on television last night"! by the staff, it made Geofffrey's day when I told him.

What goes with a good red wine? Cold chicken, spuds and tinned beans of course! No! Well it does in our house!!
