How did the key handover go, Hazel? Or should I say the hands-off exchange? LOL

LOL Tony, now the proud owners of two little ducks (Number 22) at the Water Garden. All went well but strangely lol keys left on kitchen counter five mins before the agreed time so we could all avoid one another ! It has been a beautiful sunny day and the apartment looked nice and bright with magnificent south facing balcony. Still a lot of work to organise things and I think deliveries are stopping from Friday so we asked the furniture store if it was possible to drop off two leather recliner chairs in advance of the rest of our order and they were amazing turning up from Oldham just two hours later ! Everyone has been really obliging. We are taking one day at a time but still have 5 weeks left in the rental so we have time to sort out the new place, assuming we can get it done. I'll stick a couple of pics up on the odds and sods thread later or in a Tea-room post.
well done with the quiz, it's certainly a challenge lol
Many thanks to Hazel, Tony, and with a late entry from Robbo, for giving it a bash.
No full disclosure yet, but with my camera having continuous shooting, I've added some shots taken just before (or after) the original ones.If there's anyone else out there with the urge to have a guess at them, there's still time before the answers are revealed. :-)
4. Bit of a trick question with 2 birds in this one....oops.!! ;-)
12. Bit of a sneaky one this..... oops again.!! ;-)
13. I think there may be one or two here on the forum who will rcognise this one.

Well done, Hazel. 13 out of 14 so far. Full details later on the one you're not sure of. ;-)

No great effort. Stuck at home like most folks. Fence and shed have been painted, Holly bush has been severely scalped. Onions & Potatoes have been planted (Carrots in another few weeks). Cabbage seeds for Butterflies have been planted in a tray in the Greenhouse. Lawn has been scarified and also had first cut to neaten it up a bit,
Also the farmer has 'treated' the fields behind the garden, so some of the dung salvaged from around fence has found its way onto Mrs A's Roses. :-)
Loft also needs a clean out and some DIY planned for stairs, hallway and top landing.
The sooner this is all over, and it will be eventually if everyone does their part in helping, the better.
