Resurrected Eighteen

Afternoon all,  It's taken hours to transfer all the info from the old to the new Laptop.  The only thing I haven't managed is getting my iPhone to see the photos on the laptop.  May have to get some help with that.  I have downloaded IPhone photos on both laptop and phone but still can't make it work. Other than that I'm all set.

Consequently I haven't got much gardening done.  Did deadhead though and hubby has mowed the lawns for me.

Have a trip to the dentist to look forward to tomorrow for a filling replacement.  Hate the dentist.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

Evening all,  Liri you were right about the flies.  I was in the lounge this evening and heard buzzing looked round and saw movement inside the log burner.  After you mentioned about the vents I had shut them just in case.  When I checked there were loads in there.  Hubby has now lit a fire.  Hopefully problem solved.

Am typing this on the new laptop.  Much faster than the old one.  Have sorted most of the stuff out now.  Just need to get an ad blocker for this site.  It's a nightmare.   Someone suggested one on here last time can anyone recommend one?

Hi folks, solved the mystery of the flies.  I was sitting in the lounge when I heard buzzing.  Looked around but couldn't see anything.  Then I noticed movement inside the log burner and there were loads of flies in there.  Hubby hanow lit a fire so hopefully we wont get any more.  Don't know how anything got in there because it's capped on the roof. The flies were coming out of the fire vents.   Someone mentioned the vents,  they said they had had a problem,  don't know if it was on here or on Forkers.

Now typing on new laptop.  I've had one of those that can be used as laptop or tablet, seems OK, certainly faster.  Have loaded most of the stuff on here but must sort out an Ad blocker for this site, they are already driving me mad.

Well laptop is purchased and will be collecting it in a couple of hours after they have loaded Office etc on to it.  Not a geekess but know what I want.  Had one that you can use with keyboard or touchscreen.  I do begrudge paying for software though, added an extra £150 to the cost, never paid for it before as always got it through work.

We used to keep marine fish but they are tricky to keep and thought I'd leave the fish to have a long life at sea rather than a very short one in my tank

New laptop purchased. They are loading office etc onto it so will be picking it up in a couple of hours.  Can't wait to get rid of this one as it's driving me crazy. 

Lovely sweet peas Dove.

I'm fairly local to Bournville and Secondborn went to the Art College, it really upset me when Kraft bought out Cadbury seemed such a betrayal of the staff. It was such an iconic British brand.

Garden Visits 2017

Love you photos Chicky, such a romantic garden it would be perfect for filming one of those period dramas.

Wiisley does look beautiful Mark and Scroggin, wonder when I could visit

Sorry to hear about Wonky Dove. Hope the splints help.

Love Agatha Christie Lily P, one of my guilty pleasures, I can watch them over and over again.  Joan Hickson is my favourite Miss Marple and David Suchet is a perfect Hercule Poirot.  Do you know which story they are filming?

Haven't seen many butterflies about this year Aunty Rach even though it's supposed to have been a good year for them.
