How's your day?

Got a bone to pick with @Stavertongirl

 

She's been handing out my address to Gertie's friends!  First thing this morning, I found an humongous, black, eight-legged bruiser skulking in my bathroom basin!  "Ey up!" it said, darkly. "Goodbye," I replied as I dropped it out of the bathroom window, having caught it in the ever present plastic tumbler.  Don't mind the smaller ones but I'm not having a giant like that in residence.

 

On a happier note, I met Horace the hedgehog last night.  I've been putting food out for a few days and the dish has been empty each morning. He has a bath in the water. At 9pm, after I'd finished watching Igor the bat doing his aeronautics under the moon, along came Horace. He's not too large but the way he eats, he soon will be.

 

I couldn't be happier if someone had given me the crown jewels. I love hedgehogs and am so lucky to find one in my garden.

No doubt it’s doggedly making its way towards my side room. Unfortunately there is a tenant in situ at present so there will be no vacancy until such time as the tenancy agreement expires. Even then the said in situ tenant has the option to renew the said tenancy agreement providing all the conditions of said tenancy have been fully met and both sides are in agreement.
So alternative accommodation will be needed for said bruiser. Any offers?

I'm not in my part of the world though Mr.Mayfield. Not referring to shade temperatures but sitting in direct sun, watching all these tourists playing "Master and Commander" on the river. Bit disappointed though, nobody's fallen in yet or hit the bridge.

I'm waiting Riverside in me hi-viz jacket ready to dive in, if anybody falls overboard or off the bridge. Then I'll be in like a geriatric otter.

There was a lot of police activity in our village at 6 o’clock this morning. Numerous police vans and CID cars. A 53 year old man was arrested and remains in police custody for offences against the Environmental Protection Act. There are the usual public comments that ‘this sort of thing doesn’t happen in our sleepy village’. I can guess who it is but as no names have been released I can’t say. This could become very interesting. Plenty to gossip about at the pub tonight!

 

The plot thickens on this case. After a bit of delving I’ve discovered this was part of a countrywide case of substantial illegal waste dumping at various unlicensed sites and there were dawn raids on other addresses.

Beekay have you been up the broads yet? 

 

If you go on one of the big boats you will pass lots of posh houses. Look and remember where all  the money people are. When I win the Lottery I am going to join them.

Mary1947, After coming here for the last 24 years, both on boats and in cottages, I can honestly say "Bin there, done that, made the film". We are staying where the big boats are berthed, so see them passing every day. However, they are  not carrying passengers until May 17th, when Uncle Boris has told them it's okay. Nowadays, we just like to sit on the patio and watch peeps enjoy themselves. You can always tell the complete novice, he's the one who wears a 1.99 skippers hat (usually too small) playing Master and Commander, far side of the river. He's the one who forgets to lower the canopy or move the aerial and loses them when going under Wroxham bridge.

A PC will need to install a codec to open a heic file. Double click it and it will ask if it can install it.

It's easier if Apple users convert pics to jpg format before posting...;)

It's now 6.00pm and these two have just paddled by. They turned round as they probably thought they wouldn't get under Wroxham bridge.
