Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Glad you have a temporary fix Sue! Mind you, if I had a pile like that the knickers would have got priority! Ah i washed the things that i wanted to dry on the line first, it gives them longer. Undies can always dry quickly in my purpose constructed airing cupboard ( designed by me and fitted out b...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

You may be lucky Sue, Some washers won't allow you to open the door if the water level is not below a certain value. You could try draining the filter and seeing if it will release the solenoid. (the washer must be switched on when you try this bit). The cycle was finished. I even did a rinse cycle...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We had a lovely day yesterday. We caught the boat at Ambleside to Wray castle and walked the 4.5 miles down the lakeside to the ferry where we crosed over to Bowness. We then had a walk round Bowness followed by the boat back to Ambleside. We rounded the day with a swim at the spa here at Langdale. ...

Planning a trip to do some deer watching in Martindale. We went with a guide a few years ago and have been by ourselves ever since. Nice walk and better if you see something.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I remember a gardener once telling me that the best treatment in dry weather was hoeing with a Dutch Hoe, lets in the air and ambient moisture and kills weeds My belief too however Stanley, even a Dutch hoe wouldn’t break this surface its like concrete! I have broken more than one here. Off to the ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We found all the transport stuff in the Museum of America. It was rather good. Personally I enjoyed the exhibition of the inauguration dresses of the first ladies dating back to the mid 18 hundreds. There were some fine creations!

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Ah Sue! You have to be ready for the unexpected when you travel as you well know.... Lost bags are annoying! Worst is finding yourself in the wrong country!

Sitting at Vancouver airport, waiting for flight to San Francisco to connect to Washington D C. Great cruise lovely staff but rubbish customer care. Poor disability care for our friend and they have lost two cases when we came ashore! Watch this space.
