I'm intrigued as to what it could be. The dates are good.
As for a hedgehog you may drive the country roads at night and pick one up when you come across one. The pc brigade would advise you to get one from a sanctuary of some sort. Seal up all those holes in the fencing first though. On mature reflection I advise the latter.

I was on my travels recently and came across this house. Anyone recognise it?

No no no.
There is a reason for showing that photo. Nobody would know your house anyway but the photo would/should be.
Sure I'm a lovely man!!!

Well I'm back from our mystery cruise. Wow, I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who has toyed with the idea, to just do it. We started at Dover and the captain said all sort of vague messages like, the temperature of our 1st port is 29 degrees, we are heading west, no we're not its east, or could be south or north. In fact we didn't know where we were till we recognised the flag of our 1st port Oslo Norway. We took a coach trip all around and ended up at the top where the Olympic ski jump is surrounded by about 6 inches of snow, It was 6 degrees but felt colder, however all roads and paths had been cleared.

2nd port of call was Gothenburg Sweden where we just walked on our own. Found the cathedral which was beautiful AND FREE.

3rd port of call was Copenhagen Denmark. We did a hop on hop off bus.We enjoyed the sights of the ride. When we got back to the start, we swapped sides and did it all over again.

4th port of call Amsterdam Holland. We had a mystery coach trip. We arrived at the Keukenhof Gardens. I was so pleased as we went there about 18 years ago and always wanted to go back. We wasn't disappointed. The gardens were beautiful and the smell it was intoxicating. Every type of Spring bulb imaginable. We sat in the gardens and it was 16 degrees. daft when 3 days prior we was walking in snow covered ground. The gardens are so much bigger than 18 years ago. I bought some bulbs as a memory.

Back to the horror of an overgrown garden. I shall have to get the magic garden fairy to change it so it looks like the Keukenhof gardens.



When we arrived bagain in November. It was a lovely finish to our mystery cruise

My father went on a Mediterranean cruise a few years ago with several stops along the way and never got off the boat. Not even to say that he had set foot in that country. The rest of them toured around at every opportunity though.
Sounds idyllic, a mystery cruise, how many days Margo?
