    Beautiful day here. Just the right kind of temperature with a slight wind.

    Hubby off having an MRI scan so I'm home getting up to mischief. In fact I'm wondering what I can demolish in the way of food.
    Anyone know if eating a pitta bread or wrap is better for you than bread?

    Have a busy week ahead, visiting, people visiting me, school fayres and a trip to a National Trust house with an old friend of mine (known him since 1994)

    I hope you all have a good week

    @wolfie11969 ....looks like you have a busy week ahead....

    ....which National Trust house will you be visiting.....I am a member (purchased lifetime membership back in my mid twenties) and often visit properties when in different areas.....means I can just pop in and pop out without worrying about cost....

    ....surprised @Clivethedrive today by turning up at a NT property he was taking American group to today.....Chartwell in Kent which was home of Winston Churchill....didn’t tell him I was going but just decided on a whim as I was making my toast this morning....surprised him as he drove in and made his day:).....had a lovely lunch together and a wander round the gardens...

    ...home alone tomorrow and Friday as he has another group going to Windsor and Cambridge then Salisbury, Stonehenge and Bath.....lots of driving and an overnight stop in London.....weekend off / at home rebuilding our decking ....is a bit of an obstacle course at the moment where we dismantled old one last week....and then anniversary lunch to look forward to next Tuesday....:joyful:

    ...oh what a busy life we lead but all good fun.....hope you enjoy your week and find some time to put your feet up.....

    I'm off to see Wightwick Manor here in Wolverhampton. It has a fine collection of pre-raphelite paintings. The only thing I dont like is it is a guided tour and you cant wander around on your own. My youngest daughter used to volunteer there and was put with the conservation team. If my knees and hips would let me bend down and get back up again I'd love to follow in her steps.

    We used to have membership too but it lapsed as Jordan came to live with us and we werent sure how long he could be left alone. Now we have the dog, Freddie so again we dont know if we can leave him long enough to go travellling around the country.

    I think we will pull in a couple of NT places on our trip to Devon. It's left to me to source out what's about and then hubby says yay or nay.

    I wish you both many congratulations for your anniversary. Have a great day.

    Oh as for deking, watch the splinters hee hee

    Well it's noisy here in wolfie's world. We have some very nice young men fixing our roof.

    Expecting a friend around 11, so more noise.

    And shopping later.

    No grandkids today as they are off on a week long trip to Southport. Strange without them.

    I hope you all have a good day, weather permitting

    Hello Mrs Molly I trust you and Mr Clive are keeping well

    Yes we’re only 9 miles from Checkpoint Charlie

    You need an oxygen mask up there to combat the foul stench
