What Spider Are You?

I found these two around the house this weekend. Don't they look great? But I really don't know what varieties they are, does anyone have a clue? Suggestions appreciated.

Coming Second

Let's face it Great Britain was never going to out perform a power house such as the USA, were we? But to beat the likes of China and be placed second on the medals table is a mighty achievement. Well done to all Team GB's Olympic stars.

Who's A Lucky Boy!

Well actually having been left feeling like a like a second class citizen by my mobile phone company, I felt I had no choice but to find a better deal.

Love a new gadget LOL.

Fifty And Five

I've not mentioned the 2016 Olympics so far, you might have noticed. To be honest I've not had time to watch even the TV highlights. Having said that it is time to mark the milestone for Team GB, having already exceeded their medal target of 48 for the games. As of this morning we have won fifty medals: a fantastic achievement by our sports people. And we still have five days of competition ahead of us, so hopes are high for our talented women and men who proudly represent this country in the coming events.

Oh and did I mention Great Britain are in second position on the medal table? Unheard of LOL!

Unfair Use?

Apparently my mobile (or cell, US folks) phone company believes that an Unlimited Data plan actually means a limit of 3.5GB per month. This is despite offering plans capped at 5GB and 10GB, for a lesser fee. How does that work?

Some will be aware I'm quite partial to Yorkshire Tea AND limited edition tins. A weird combination I know. Add to that mix The Gruffalo, what's not to like LOL?
