A nice walk around Attenborough reserve, ( named after David Attenborough).It runs alongside the river Trent. Me and MissisT had a lovely walk with some Bessie pals we have not seen for a couple of months. Finished off with a lovely pub meal. I e to rechatprge the batteries.
I will be back at the reserve when all the chicks are out May/ June time 😁

Started out at Attenborough carpark and ended up at Beeston lock πŸ‘
Had a nice meal at Trent lock. The golf Course at Trent lock looks Very nice.

Edit to say, the plethora of Bods( birds ) inc Herons is always fantastic to see there πŸ‘

Never heard of it. I'll drag the old man around it next week when I'm up there, if I can convince him that there's a world beyond Newstead Abbey and Blidworth Woods. Thanks for highlighting it.

The beauty of Attenborough, it’s flat as a pancake. And there are several routes of varying distances. Toilets with a nice little shop and cafe at the centre car park. Of toilets and cafe at Beeston Lock. πŸ‘

Got a pair of Ecco's that are super comfy but alas leak like a sieve, they are 4 years old. So sprayed them with a well know letter & number product and hey presto, played 7 holes today and purposefully walked through long wet rough and dry as a bone, sterner test on Weds but for now happy days πŸ˜‰ 😁

Please be more explicit with the brand. Whatever it is, I need it.
All I can think of is WD-40, which would be an unpleasant failure.

Earlier this evening we managed to book a family break away (5 brothers and sisters, wives, partners, children etc.) over the early May bank holiday weekend at a Welsh glamping/pod/camping site. After we found a site with enough places (6) still available, there was a frantic 20 minutes of clicking around the country, followed by a huge sigh of relief when we all got there.

We try to have a family holiday weekend once a year, but this is the first since 2019. We usually book a very large house, but thought we would try something different this year. Looking forward to it. :)

I've got a plumber and his mate currently struggling to fit a new tap to our kitchen sink - and it is proving a real pain. It looked likely to be a real fiddle, but I thought it something I should be able to do myself - so boy - am I glad I listened to my Mrs when she told me not to try....just get a plumber to do it.
