Done it again, wanted to post a pic of the beautiful flowers I got yesterday. Ipad won't let me and pc when i call up post image all the photographs have disappeared. Even trying to transfer a pic from google to apple doesnt work. I really should stop trying to outdo the pc by messing things up. Will keep trying .

CT which "old" photo? Last years 50 th anniversary one? No it won't be that one because we forgot to take any photos....busy catching up with in laws. I did take a few before they arrived though, but none with us. The only one was a video pic with my brother in law in France. He kept saying

" bacio, bacio, (kiss) so we did and he took the photo and sent it.

The one on Facebook a few days ago; you and your husband a few years ago.

 

 

...and I'm not sure what the problem is with posting photos here, but although they don't seem to work when you post them, I've edited the original and made it appear.

49 years ago today, I was trying to push a bowling ball through the eye of a needle! Well, that's what it felt like giving birth,  haha. This is the last year coming up when I've still got all 3 in their 40's. Getting old? Moi? Nooooo.

How's me day today? Been down to the hospital for me annual Diabetic Rhetinopothy (photographs of back of the eye, for those who don't know). Had me drops in and after the 10min wait, had me pictures took. The technician was satisfied with the images and said there had been no deterioration since last time (2019), in fact if anything, the back of the eyes had a slight improvement. Must say I came away very reassured. Next will be phone consultation with me GP about my Thyroid, after a blood test a couple of weeks ago. Hope it's the same as me eyes.

We have an invasion of swallows. They dont care where they fly and sometimes we have to duck. They find all the best places to rest on, like on the light outside my front door. If I leave the door open for the dogs to go backwards and forwards they fly into the hallway. This morning I must put something on or over the light to stop them using it as a toilet. They've left " messages" everywhere. Having said that they are quite a site to see. We also have a bat and sometimes his whole family sleeping behind the window shutter above my kitchen window. They too leave "messages" but they aren't "love letters". Oh well I suppose I will have to get the hose pipe out.

I'm really pleased to read your post, nonna.  We've been worried by the lack of swallows here at the moment. It's nice to know they are alive and well somewhere.

 

There are bats near to me. I stand in the garden at dusk and watch them having fun. They are quite spectacular. Mr and Mrs Igor, I've named them!

A couple of nights ago I stood watching bats outside the back door. I've never seen so many, so clearly, or so spectacular. At times I really thought they might fly in though the half open door.

What amazes me about the bats is how fast they are.  If you blink, you can miss them as they zoom back and forth in our garden.  Standing in the middle of the garden, clicking your fingers seems to attract them even more...

Perhaps they think I'm a long lost relative trying to contact them - a sort of 'bat text'?   Or perhaps I'm just a batty old woman?

Maybe the bats hear the clicks as a sort of Sonar. They send out a series of clicks when flying, it helps them navigate in the dark.

Not only have we swallows and bats we had a baby mouse in the house this afternoon. It scampered across the lounge floor and my husband said, " un scarafaggio" ( cockroach) " no e' un  topo" ( mouse) If we have to have things running around in the house I prefer mice, although I hate them I've always been squeamish about cockroaches since I first came to live here. In the summer they would crawl under the door. 

Anyway this baby mouse promptly hid behind the settee and from there to behind furniture. Too heavy to move. So we waited and meanwhile found a couple of broken tiles to spread some glue on. Yes i know its cruel but i hate traps and it was too small and fast to catch it. Eventually found it in another room and managed to trap it until my husband came to the rescue.

Oh the joys of living in the country and having fields all round.

By the way BK our cactus is pregnant, looks like its have an army of babies. 

I have taken a photo but Im having problems posting it.

Grandma to a cactus eh ! That sounds good Nonna. Ive planted Two packets of cacti seeds but not a flamin,' one.

I did break off a piece from the cactus in our centre. It's started growing now, but I spent 3 days getting tiny spines out of me hand !
