However, the moggies are fond of bluebottles and spiders...which aren't insects. I'm told they taste like prawns?

Another wild, wet and windy day to greet us I'm afraid. Trouble is, I'm visiting Hants and Dorset over the next week or so, and it doesn't look too promising ! Still, the car boot is full of clothing to cover every eventuality. Oh, no bathers or flip flops. Waterproofs, woolly hats and Parka's a plenty though.  :tanning:Maybe not !

Got everything imaginable Rog. Mrs Fly thinks we're going for three months the amount of clobber we take away.

Aye up, it's stopped raining, there's some blue sky, and the sun is poking through. Get the deck chairs in quick !

Lizzie was interested in your dil not drinking cows milk. Neither does my daughter but she has problems. She has to control her diet. For years she suffered with being overweight. Various diets from a number of Dcs didn't work so eventually she took all her exams etc to a specialist who looked at her record . One by one he said " nothing there" but take the whole lot together and discovered that she was border line diabetic. She produces too much cortisol. He put her on a strict regime. Plenty of physical exercise and eliminated quite a few foods including cows milk and foods that contained milk such as ham. This way she has managed her life like this but does feel better . If she happens to eat or drink something she shouldn't her hands get swollen and she feels out of sorts. She had her regular checkup recently and she's been told to up her exercise regime. With running and cooking in her restaurant she has little time to go to classes. She does yoga and has a tapis roulant ( treadmill) and now she's just bought a spinning bike.

Immunising children is a great debate here at the moment because like your dil mothers don't want their children immunized, I think they're making the biggest mistake of their lives. Being vegan is a choice but eating sensibly is what makes you healthy. I've reduced a lot of things from my diet such as red meat. I got some lamb from the freezer to eat yesterday and couldn't eat it . The dogs had it this morning. It's not that I've given up meat it's just that I don't eat it. If it was served to me at friends I would eat it out of politeness. It's worrying what illnesses the future generations will be bound to have. But maybe that's the idea of an older generation.

My grandfather used to say " it won't rain if there's enough blue sky to make a pixie a handkerchief"  

So if in doubt watch the sky. thumbsup

I'm continuing with my 'spring cleaning/sorting stuff out, so I've been wallowing in nostalgia once more.  I've been slowly reading letters sent to me from my mum and (occasionally) my dad from when I left home in the 1960s.  There was a lot I'd forgotten about and I SO wish they were still here so we could read through them together.    It was quite difficult to read them because of my eyesight - I think that may be the last time I'll look at them....  Anyway, nearly everything is in bags and labelled so it will make things easier for the kids to look at when the time comes..... (before a lot of it gets chucked in a skip! )

Had my oncology visit this morning. I was very agitated but everything is fine. The shadow on my lung has cleared slightly so Onc said it was a positive sign.If it had been another tumour it would have shown up darker. But I still have to have another CT scan in June. He's being very much on the ball and not taking any risks. What a relief.

Just got back from the flicks. Been to see “Fisherman’s Friends”. I love their music and the authenticity of it really emphasises that shanties were usually work songs. You can really hear the “stamp and go” as the capstan was worked round and the hauling on the sheets as the sails were hoisted. Been to Port Isacc many times (before Doc Martin) and have heard them sing on the Platt Whilst I’ve eaten my fish and chips (washed down with a pint of HSD.)

 

However .... the film takes such a liberty with the real story that it’s difficult to see any facts at all. Shame really. I could hear the Port Isaac folks retching from here! Like a cup of tea with 6 sugars ... couldn’t taste any tea at all.

Just got back from walking the dog - really windy but not raining yet. The paper boy - a rather chubby lad - was just ambling down the drive, where he got into a nice Mercedes and a lady (mummy?) drove him to the next house where he got out and delivered their paper. I watched in bemusement and this was repeated down the street. Paper rounds have obviously changed since I were a lass!

I always felt sorry for paper boys/girls at weekends in the shop I worked in. All the supplements in the papers over the weekend, especially on sundays. Don’t know how they managed to carry them on their rounds.
