    In a Town not far from us a woman was driving behind a Van when suddenly the van driver threw a kitten from the window of his vehicle! She managed to stop to look for the kitten as did others and the little kitten was found in some bushes. It was taken to a rescue centre and is well enough to be homed by some family who will love to give the little dear a home. She unfortunately didn't get the drivers number plate. 😠

    Feeling you are back into the lovely hot Summer we had? Do watch Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer (not forgetting Ted) and watch them fishing on BBC2. I watched 2 episodes tonight that I had recorded. So very funny and the beautiful country sides they chose to cast their rods. I threw off my snuggly blanket and felt warm again just watching them fishing in Devon and Wales, a lovely programme.

    Phillip came to me today, and said it was time to go. I looked at him and smiled, as I whispered that "I know" I then turned and looked behind me, and saw I was asleep. All my family were around me, and I could hear them weep. I gently touched each shoulder, with Phillip by my side. Then I turned away and walked, with my Angel guide. Phillip held my hand, as he lead the way, to a world where Kings and Queens, are Monarchs every day. I was given a crown to wear or a halo known by some. The difference is up here, they are worn by everyone. I felt a sense of peace, my reign had seen its end. 70 years I had served my country, as the peoples friend. Thank you for the years, for all your time and love. Now I am one of two again, in our Palace up above.

    I watched Elvis tonight on Prime Video thanks to my Granddaughter. Being a huge Elvis fan it was sad and beautiful, hated Tom Parker but amazingly played by Tom Hanks. Austin Butler played Elvis so brilliantly, highly recommend but you'll need a tissue even if you're not an Elvis fan! Greatest singer that ever lived and a very beautiful man, never to be forgotten.

    I don't really like advertising a product in my group and I know that money is really tight for all of us, but, I am so impressed with this product and it really does an amazing job of dusting, picking up dust not just scattering it everywhere. Gives a look of 'just polished' and it so quick and easy. If you can 'fork out' for it you won't be sorry! £5

    What are your views on not flushing your loo in this water shortage. I personally am trying hard not to waste water but not flushing is too far for me, I really don't want to lift my lid and see a used toilet!

    I had so many overripe bananas so before freezing I made this lovely gooey banana cake and tossed in some chopped chocolate pieces, can't wait until it cools to have a slice. Beat 140g caster sugar with 140g soft butter, add 2 eggs, 140g S/R flour and a teaspoon of baking powder then the mashed bananas (I used 4 bananas!) and a handful of chopped chocolate and once folded all together pop into a lined loaf tin (I placed another halved banana on the top) and into a 160 fan oven for a good 50 minutes. I'm sure the neighbours can smell it cooking as all the windows and doors are open due to this lovely sunny day.

    Am I the only one who is wondering what I pay my TV licence for? Because for the last few weeks there has been very little apart from sport on the BBC. In July, as usual, we had Wimbledon on both BBC1 and 2 at the same time. Then we got the start of the Woman's Euros and world athletics. Then Woman's cricket and at the end of this week we have the Commonwealth Games. It's lucky there are other channels around or I'd have nothing to watch, I suggest the BBC set up a sports channel and let the rest of us have a better choice. As read in my paper today, I agree entirely.

    On a lovely windy day like today, washing on the line is a joy, but if you're anything like me I do like to tumble dry my towels in the dryer so they are nice and soft. Knowing how expense it is now to use a dryer my tip is turn off your dryer earlier than you would and do not open the door until the whole dryer has gone cold, enough heat inside to carry on drying those towels (or my hubby's underpants, he likes nice soft ones, lol)

    Keep a deep bowl or small bucket filled with cold water and added ice cubes, if you have them, and keep placing your hands into the water every now and then making sure you go over your wrists. Cools you down quickly, I find it a great help! take care everyone.

    I personally think they are, especially since they have been reduced to working Royals! Last year they cost us £102.4million that works out at less than £2 per taxpayer per year! Cheaper than paying a TV licence! What are your views?

    Save all your tin foil trays from pies and ready meals, these are ideal for cooking onions and mushrooms etc on your BBQ! Great idea I thought.

    Carrying nails and pins This useful trick is perfect for doing odd jobs around the house and garden. Cut a slit in the tennis ball and then squeeze it open. You can put in nails and pins and other small items. When you stop squeezing the ball will close. To open, simply squeeze again.

    A good tip if bugs are drawn to your paint whilst painting, especially external doors! squeeze a few drops of lemon juice into the paint. It doesn't effect the colour but the bugs hate the smell of lemon! From my ladies magazine...good idea I thought and will give it a try.

    Delicious cake called Lemonies..... I have made this twice, so easy and great with a cup of coffee! 215g of unsalted butter, softened 180g granulated sugar 1 large egg 1 egg yolk 60ml (4 tbsp) fresh lemon juice 300g 0f plain flour half a teaspoon of baking powder half a teaspoon of salt 1 lemon, grated zest FOR THE GLAZE 250g of icing sugar 6 tbsp of lemon juice preheat the oven to 170C (l50C fan) line an 8inch square baking tin with non stick paper Put the butter and sugar into a large mixing bowl and beat together with an electric hand mixer until light and fluffy. Add the egg. egg yolk and lemon juice and beat until just combined. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt, then fold in with a wooden spoon or spatula. Fold in the lemon zest, the batter should resemble a cookie dough. Spoon the batter into your prepared tin and smooth it out to the edges, then bake for 35 minutes until the top is crisp and light golden brown. Meanwhile make the glaze in a small bowl, mix together the icing sugar and lemon juice until runny and smooth. Remove the cake from the oven and immediately pour over the glaze, then leave to cool completely in the tin. Cut into 16 squares and enjoy!

    My two beautiful bird feeders have been destroyed again by two "you know who's". I am so annoyed I can't bring myself to photograph them. Should I take them back to the Garden centre who is selling them as squirrel proof feeders or just give up like my husband has suggested. I contacted the maker's of these particular feeders but have had no feedback at all. Do you think I can get my money back because they are being sold under 'the trades descriptions act'. Advice would be most welcome because I am close to just giving up completely!

    I buy Maris Piper potatoes for roasting as they are the best but the last few bags, over a period of a Month, the potato beneath the skin is black! therefore most of them have to be peeled to nothing nearly to be edible! Anyone else noticed this. Can anyone recommend a good spud that roasts well?

    Highly recommend "The good liar" on Netflix, staring Helen Miren, Ian Mckellen and Jim Carter. Watched it last night, very good. A cagey con artist pursues a widowed Oxford professor with substantial savings — but nothing is quite as it seems when it comes to this mark.

    In my ladies magazine today.... Here is a popular way to save that can add up to over £650 a year! The way it works is that you save a penny on day one, save 2p on day two, 3p on day three and keep going, adding another penny on, every day for a year. It gets tougher towards the end - on the last day you'll need to put aside £3.65 - but if you do this every day for a year, you'll have saved £667.95. No need to wait until January, start any day you like.

    Titanic Remembrance Day is observed every year on April 15. Did you know that the R.M.S. Titanic ship had four hull compartments that could be flooded without causing a critical loss of buoyancy, and was, thus, considered unsinkable? The day is set aside to remember the victims and survivors of the unfortunate sinking of the ship and reflect on how the world jointly responded to a heartbreaking disaster. 110th Anniversary today.

    I left a saucepan of mince for a shepherd's pie unattended yesterday (very silly 0f me) and the result was a burnt bottom of the pan. Removed the mince and poured cold water in the saucepan with a dishwasher tablet, brought it to the boil and left for 10 minutes, hey presto...easily cleaned off and my saucepan is clean as a whistle!

    Read this tip in a Woman's magazine.....when the tube is empty collect £1 coins in it! They will contain £45 apparently! The dear lady wrote that she collects them throughout the year and they are used to buy her Grandchildren their Christmas gifts! Good tip in my eyes!! or the money collected could go towards paying your Winter heating bill??
