Stoke Bruerne

So as the heat dropped for 5 minutes despite being sunny and the wind appeared cleared off to the canal for the morning


Just call me bee 🐝 rescuer

With the heat here in the U.K. the wildlife πŸ›πŸœπŸ¦‹πŸ¦—πŸŒπŸ•·πŸ•ΈπŸžπŸ is suffering never seen so many bumble bees 🐝 staggering around

So one was rescued this afternoon

If a bee 🐝 can be cheeky that one was I’d put it on the hanging baskets it would manage to tumble out and crawl after me across the grass the last time I saw it was crawling back to the lavender

Then this afternoon it was rescue number 2 not sure πŸ€” if it was the same one but it was scrabbling across the grass

Made it some glucose drink and obviously what it needed

All photos and videos taken on iPhone πŸ“± i had never been that close to a bee 🐝 before to see it drinking

Even the kestrels πŸ¦…πŸ¦… were out more than usual

Really wish we get some decent rain before the end of the week for everyone’s sake β˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈπŸŒ§πŸŒ¦πŸŒ§πŸŒ¦πŸŒ§πŸŒ¦πŸŒ§πŸŒ¦πŸŒ§πŸŒ¦πŸŒ§πŸŒ¦πŸŒ§πŸŒ¦πŸŒ§β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ

Kettfest should be renamed messfest

When will Kettering borough council realise wrapping lumps of crap knitting round lampposts is not going to make the town look better

The town is dying on its arse

If you want mobile phone shops charity shops coffee shops and harassed on a daily basis by the bible bashing squad then come to Kettering

In the last 4 weeks alone body shop closed game closed top shop closed marks and spencer is going in less than a month

We have no primark matalan or anything but 6 branches of costa WOO HOO

Any wonder why I want to move

End of the road

Well I’m off the road now for 5 weeks and it hasn’t come soon enough

No sight seeing in Portugal or Spain due to lack of time / no motivation after 7 weeks on the road it really had go to the stage where we wanted to be at home 🏑

Viveiro in Spain was very much a costal resort in the middle of nowhere (7 hour drive to the nearest city )but having the beach πŸ– close to the hotel was nice for a chance to escape the madness

So now it’s going to be a case of catching up on sleep πŸ’€, more ink is booked for 2nd August and got Elli cats 14th birthday 🎁 on 1st August

Day off in Copenhagen (6 July )

Usually a day off means going here there and everywhere But yesterday was a I really can’t be bothered πŸ˜• mix of the heat 🌞 tiredness 😴 and the fact this time next week the tour will be over well till end of August meaning I can finally relax

Hotel was damn cool though:)

Leipzig zoo 🦁 🐯 🐘 🐻 πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ
