    Out and about with Compo

    I have just caught up with all of the photos and they are stunning. Living in a built up area on the outskirts of a small city, it is hard to imagine what life must be like living in such beautiful surroundings. I don't know if it would be too remote for me, even though I do enjoy being on my own, I certainly would like to spend some time up there. Wonderful Photos, Thank you Compo and others for sharing with us.

    How's your day?

    Well the group of ten going out tomorrow to celebrate the four family birthdays has now dwindled to four. I have recovered from the awful virus but family are dropping like flies. Six in the last few days. There is more than one way of looking at this...1, sad because I was looking forward to the get together.2, it means going out for dinner again when all have recovered. 3, Cheaper on the pocket, because it was going to be our treat. 4, At least it is still on for those of us well enough to go.

    How's your day?

    We have had a very pleasant day today, celebrating my Daughters birthday. She didn't want any fuss, just a little family day out, so it was fish and chips by the river at Bridgenorth and back to hers for prezzie opening and cake! it's hard to believe my youngest is 50 today, both my offspring are in their 5th decade now. Tomorrow is my sisters birthday, she is going through a tough time health wise, so it will be just a prezzie opening visit and celebration properly when she is well. Son is 52 on Sunday, so we are all getting together for lunch at Cosmos W-ton on Saturday, to celebrate the birthdays of us all, Daughter, Son, and myself,because I was ill on my birthday and wasn't well enough to celebrate. I think the bank balance will be a bit shaky after this week.

    How's your day?

    When the children were small we stayed in St Annes a few times and did the drive through the lights each night of the stay. As great as they are , it was enough for me, I don't have the inclination to see them again, but I can understand people wanting to see them. As we drove through B-pool today I saw a sign on the side of the road, informing us that it costs £5 for each five minutes the lights are on. Also, there was a reference for donations and £5 was the amount suggested. I don't know where the donations were to be made, we had passed the sign too quickly. I wonder if it would lose a lot of visitors if it was made compulsory, and how they would go about it?

    How's your day?

    It is a beautiful holiday destination. A little bit too sedate for most Blackpool Revellers, but it suits us now. We have had our share of Blackpool nights, I couldn't take it anymore. We have finally calmed down and prefer a quiet life now.

    How's your day?

    Well we had paid for ten days here at Lythum St Annes and my hacking corf had settled enough for us to risk coming, so here we are. We have bought the cycles but I am still very breathless, even just walking, so they stay covered and chained to the railings! We will take it a day at a time? There has been a wonderful Brass Band playing in the park for the last two hours, they are playing lots from the musicals. We stood and watched for a while (all the benches were taken) and then moved on the sea front for a delicious icecream cornet. Strolling very slowly taking the view in and wondering where the sea had disappeared too, it must have been at least a mile out! Into Marks and Spencers to treat ourselves to a ready supper. ChillieCon Carni (ouch), followed by Apple Lattice Pie and Cream and Cadburys Fruit and Nut. Just got back to the Apartment and had a good strong cuppa, now for an hour working on the JigSaw. I'm sat sittin' here and my cheeks and nose are all tingly. Chris has already nodded off in a rosy glow, I tell you what.....That Wind Is Enough to Freeze your Frock Off!

    I hope I was a easy birth, probably delivered by local ladies at my Grandmas Carlton house, I am sorry Mam that I couldn't wait just a little bit longer before making my entrance to the world. Another 39days and I would have been one of the new NHS babies. Bad timing there Dad.

    Photos to cheer us up

    I'm partial to the odd steak and chips, with a little side salad. I think I'm a bit of an omnivore, with a hint of cakeivore thrown in!

    'How does your garden grow?'

    I have the Spanish Bluebells in my front garden and the English ones in my back garden Margie. The Spanish ones grow quite strong and tall here, and the English ones are more delicate and bow there heads. The English ones are my favourites. Also this year we had one very thin and weak white bell. We noticed this year that the bluebells down the country lanes are really flourishing, also white and pink bells amongst them. From spring we deliberately drive in the country, 'Snowdrop, Primrose, Cowslip and bluebell spotting'. Lovely pastime.

    I must have done something inadvertently Brew. I see there is a light coloured border around my picture, which is unusual. As far as I know, I just did a 'Print Screen', gave it a title in my pictures then copied it to forums on 'Print Image Site'?

    Nottingham Falcons

    I have finally got the Falcon Cameras working on my laptop again. I just clicked in and caught this feeding time. I don't know if the babies were fed before my picture, but I didn't see any attempt to feed them whilst I was watching. The one Falcon only seemed to want to feed the other adult?

    Thank you Mi Darlin's. You all made me smile. Still feelin' sorry for misen. Two weeks and still my cough hasn't broken. I tried to tidy the dead flowers from the garden today and had to leave it. I surely hope you all miss this Virus, it's a bo99er.
