    Wordle (and other word related games)

    Adieu is a French word, but was also used by Shakespeare among others so no surprise it’s accepted.

    Australian Car No Claims Proof

    We had the same problem when we came back last year. I emailed our last two insurers, Coles and Woolworths, and managed to get evidence of our last 6 years but couldn’t remember who had insured us before that! Still better than nothing. We are insured with National Farmers Union who accepted our Australian evidence and gave us 66% NCD. They were very helpful on the phone too….08082963357. Good luck!

    International Arrival

    Really? No wonder the NHS is short of money.
  4. If you do not reside permanently in the UK you cannot retain or renew your licence. A driving licence can only be issued by your country of residence.
  5. I believe if you no longer live in the UK you should hand in your UK driving licence.

    I know no one will care but...........

    You can get toaster bags now which are very easy to use. You make your sandwich as usual, put it in the toaster inside the bag and voilà ! Toasted sandwich without the fuss of cleaning the toasted sandwich maker.

    The Official Weather Thread

    We thought we’d got off pretty lightly but our usual walk in the woods revealed a beautiful beech tree gone. My husband tried to put it back….

    Wordle (and other word related games)

    I get very frustrated when I have 4 letters correct and then need 3 more attempts to get the last letter. I keep meaning to try a word with as many of the possible last letters in it to see which one turns yellow (or green) but then think that’s a wasted go so continue guessing !

    On a lighter note, are visitors to Tassie who are isolating really kept in a 4 wheel drive?

    Delays with our shipping container

    It’s probably too late for you to change plans Lee as you’re leaving very soon but given the uncertainty and the cost of shipping nowadays I really question whether bringing stuff back is worth it. Our container took 8 months to arrive. We borrowed stuff from family and friends but did end up buying things we knew we already had. I’ve filled a fair few charity bags since our container arrived too! Things I though I couldn’t live without simply don’t fit into our lifestyle here. There will always be the photo albums etc but they can be shipped more easily and it doesn’t matter if they take months to arrive. We were lucky that we only had an extra £100 to pay but I dread to think how much the shipping took out of me in terms of stress.

    Wordle (and other word related games)

    It’s not a problem so long as you’re aware of it. I suppose it gives a lot more options of 5 letter words.

    Shipping price increase?

    They are bound to be. Prices have been driven up by delays caused by Covid.

    Must depend where you are. We’ve just returned from Asda and there were only one or two faces visible. The vast majority, not just doddering old people, are still wearing masks here.

    Post a random picture of your day

    Sorry Ramot, with the time difference I thought this wouldn’t be a problem. I get so frustrated when I’m one letter out and it takes two or three attempts to get the correct one!

    What Book are you reading??

    I discovered Michael Robotham on my last visit to the library and love the variety of his books. Bombproof, The secrets she keeps, and When you are mine are all excellent.
