It has been a wonderful spring day today as the sun shone and it os so much warmer.
Ray is still working on the garden lights. he has bought so many its like Christmas out there at night now. He mended some of the old ones why!! I dont know.
We went to take Louis for a wonderful run. the first run in the Whitstable Rugby club field. it was great to see him running wild chasing the ball. He disappeared from behind a shed with a rugby ball. Thought it was better to go then before a load of rugby players cam chasing for their ball. ha ha !!!
We came back to Tesco and I went in for just a few things. Got back home and then had a lovely chat to Mesowarrior Dorothy’s Son in Law. We talked about Asbestos and how Dorothy might have been contaminated so causing her death. It is a problem if you don’t know, you cant always work out the exact area.
She was such a lovely lady who painted such lovely pictures one of which was used for her Tribute on Monday
Goodnight to a brave Mesowarrior.
It was a lovely chat and the afternoon went so fast. A letter from Nick Clegg was emailed to me while we were talking. Like you do.
I had written on behalf of the Mesowarriors so the reply is for the Mesowarriors
Im not happy with it. They are just playing for time and time isnt what we a terminal person has.
So we carry on with the fight the petition is doing really well with 2,913 supporters so we keep going as we need 5000.
Facebook this morning was filled with photos of children all dressed up to go to school on World Book Day.
Karryanne is always coming up trumps I just loved what she did with her 2 wonderful children.
This story bought a smile to my face as well as I love fairies.
“Fairy control” has had to be brought in at a woods in Somerset to curb the “profusion of elfin construction”.
Hundreds of fairy doors have been attached to the bases of trees in Wayford Woods, Crewkerne.
It is claimed the doors have been installed by local people so children can “leave messages for the fairies”.
But trustee Steven Acreman said: “We’ve got little doors everywhere. We’re not anti-fairies but it’s in danger of getting out of control.”
Originally an extension of nearby Wayford Manor Gardens, the 29 acres of woodland boasts a stream, meadow and ornamental lake.
Set up as a charitable trust in the 1990s, it wasn’t until the beginning of the millennium that the first fairy moved into the woods and installed a “little door” in the roots of a tree.
“It fitted perfectly, it had a little turned handle and inside was a bed. We didn’t know who had done it but we left it there,” said Mr Acreman.
“But then another door appeared and now it’s gathered momentum.”
At its peak a year ago, more than 200 little doors had been screwed, nailed and installed on trees, according to Mr Acreman.
And with little tokens, fairy toys and notes secreted behind some of the doors, it has rapidly become known as “the fairy woods”.
“We’ve had as many as 10 doors put up on a single tree; they surrounded the tree,” he said.
“We had a complete fairy fairground arrive, but we rejected that planning proposal.”
With elfin construction now including “more and more garish” plywood doors with “lots of tinsel and glittery stuff”, Mr Acreman said they have had to bring in “quality control” to remove the worst offenders.
“It’s a very complex situation and nobody’s admitting that they’re evicting the fairies,” he said.
“It’s just that fairy control is required otherwise we’d be covered in fairy doors.
“We put a lot of time into the conservation of the woods. We’re trying to keep people to the paths but the fairy doors are making it a free-for-all.”
Its nice to loose yourself in magical things now and again when the world is going mad around us
