We have just spent 10 days on Holy Island so peaceful and quiet, I can recommend a visit if you need to recharge your batteries. To all of you feeling unwell I hope your feeling better soon,  to the rest of you who are fit make sure you stay that way.

It keeps you fit, and mentally alert Lizzie, that's for sure.

Not sure whether you’re right there FLY, this chap is so incredibly intelligent that most things he talks about go right over my head.  Last evening he was trying to educate me about a lady called Mrs Humphry Ward, a best-selling British novelist in the early 1900s.  The conversation came about when we were discussing the area I lived in before moving back to Nottingham 15 years ago.  This lady lived at Stocks in Aldbury, Hertfordshire, a village not far from our old home.   Many years later Victor Lownes of the Playboy empire lived in the house with a few of his playmates!  He was filling my tiny brain with so many facts, I think he said Mrs Humphrey Ward was a big player in the suffragette movement.  I’ve needed a quiet day today!

After all the upheaval of moving,,wifes decided to go away for a few days and recuperate,, which leaves me with a dilemma,,

The first option, well, you don't know what you're getting, and the second option, well those that don't get an invite may get jealous and snitch.

Forget it Ben. Stick with your books and CD's !

Or the fourth option...but it's too late now.

 

Organise a 'Flash mob" Nottstalgia meet-up somewhere nearby. When does she get back ?

With great trepidation I decided to venture into my conservatory this morning, haven’t been in since my confrontation with my “beast”, it has been securely locked since then. I armed myself with my hoover and my trusty brush. Felt a bit like Clint Eastwood in the spaghetti movies when he confronts the bad guy, throwing his poncho over his shoulder so he can get to his gun or perhaps Dirty Harry might have been better with his big gun! 

Had a good look through the patio doors before venturing in, very carefully opening the door and put my hoover in. Waited a bit and then stepped in protected by my brush. Moved away from the patio doors where he dashed under after last time in case he jumped out and got my leg. Hit the plastic lip a few times with my brush to see if he emerged, nothing happened.

Feeling a bit braver I swept under the blinds and then put hoover on. The air was electric, would he emerge in fighting mode or just skulk in his hiding place?

Finished hoovering, victory I thought. I was adjusting one of the blinds when one of my boys wandered into the room unbeknown to me and touched me on the leg with his nose. After I climbed down from the ceiling I beat a hasty retreat back to the safety of my kitchen.

Perhaps he has moved on having had his fun with me or perhaps he could not stand having to deal with a mad woman hitting him with a brush and screaming?

I just love the description of your saga, I don't know if I want you to find "the Beast" or to read more tales of this Quest. Best of luck.
