Very sad to hear that the Chief TOG , Terry Wogan, has passed away. I listened to him on the radio for years as I drove to work and then always listened when in Cyprus. It’s quite frightening all these people not so many years older than us are passing. A reminder to be thankful we are still here.
We spent an hour today taking part in the Big Garden Birdwatch. You don’t need the paperwork, it can all be done online. We did spend some time yesterday watching the birds on our feeder and were quite amazed at how many there were. They are very plump birds who aren’t lacking food because of the mild winter. It also surprises us to see so many Rose Ringed Parakeets by Sandwich Quay. They are so noisy.
Next we watched Djokovic beat Andy Murray. Enough said. We hadn’t walked Ellie and by the time that had finished, it was drizzling. We should have gone earlier as we usually do. We walked around the orchards in Wingham.
We have booked a holiday in the Isle of Wight, part of our seeing more of the UK. We also booked a B&B half way to Portsmouth on the way there. Today we saw a hotel in Lewes on Groupon with breakfast and a 3 course meal included for £79 but today there is 10% off, so we have managed to book that for a break on the way back. There are so many bargains if you look for them (I put some on each day at the top of the page and of course we have to try them out!)
Football in the afternoon. I have to sat I felt a little sorry for MK Dons. Chelsea beat them 5-1.

APOLOGIES TO ALL MY READERS. MY BLOG HAS BEEN HACKED. Our host seemed to struggle with finding the problem and then decided they would charge us a lot of money to sort it. Mal to the rescue and he has solved the problem.
The website may be slow for a while but in a couple of days all our websites will be transferred to a new server.
Now to catch up with the days I missed…if I can remember!
We took Ellie to Sandwich. The whole idea of this is because the fields around us are so muddy. However now she has discovered how to get into the streams and river.. On the way to the river we met a lady with her puppy Goldie and he was covered in mud. Eliie always plays with him and tries to scrounge treats from the lady. We stood talking to her for a while and she said she never realised how fond Goldies were of water , the dirtier the better. That must be quite a shock for her. Ellie went in the stream too!
Another day that Mal spent far too long on the internet!
I went out for lunch with the Red Hatters. A lovely group of ladies. Our chapter is called The Krimson Krinklees! and I think I spent the whole four hours laughing. We did manage to book a few things up while we were together. An afternoon tea, tickets for the Police panto and a lunch so far. A shame I wasn’t aware of any red hatters in Cyprus. They are spread all over the world.
Not the best of photos as three of us were sitting in the window flooded by the sun! It’s such fun because everyone in the pub comes and speaks to us and asks what sort of club we belong to!
I was even presented with my members badge!

Today was one of the days that my website was hacked and now I am going back trying to fill in the gaps, I have forgotten what we did!! This has to be a sign of old age.
I did receive the photo of our little Spelling Bee , Violet. Well done! It does make me laugh that she is going to the same primary school that I went to in Palmer’s Green! I wonder what the chances are of that!
We went into Wingham. Mal to his allotment and Ellie and I had a long walk all around the orchards. I was really surprised to see this on some of the apple trees…so early.
Mal spent an hour on the phone to Sky. They gave us a free package, which we didn’t even want and now the year is up, Mal is trying to cancel and they are now trying to charge far more. Total con merchants.
I think he spent the rest of the day on to our host as this blog was hacked and they were being most unhelpful and wanted a lot of money to sort it out!

Another sunny walk by the Stour. We took our eyes off Ellie for just a minute when she was running around…..a bit muddy! Heron was there again, we also saw a kingfisher and heard a woodpecker but just couldn’t see him in the tree.
We went to Azouma in Canterbury, for our lunch. It is such a good deal there and such lovely Moroccan/ Lebanese food and we were so surprised that we arrived about 1pm and we were the only customers. A few people came in later but it wasn’t at all busy which was very unusual.
I made an Ocado order, part of my deal was free delivery for 6 months, so all very easy, especially for the bulky heavy things. All the fresh things appear to have a long date. As a new customer you can receive £20 off your first order. AND although they have to charge 5p per carrier bag, return all your carrier bags on the next order and you get a refund of the money!
