    For those who might have been a bit concerned about the state of @Carole's butt, I can report that I have just had a quick peep at it and, after having had quite a rough night of it, it is back to full capacity now.

    Well I can only hope you behaved as some of the other tourists do and enjoyed the fresh air of the Chase by chain smoking on your walk and picnic and not giving a damn where you threw your cigarette butts.

    That annoys me too.
    We sat very quietly away from other people and totally observed the countryside code.

    Take nothing but photographs, leave nothing behind but footprints and kill nothing but time.

    For some reason I’ve never made guacamole before but decided to give it a go today.

    Not really mundane but we (our village) did this.
    We’ve always had a village drop off point to donate things for the food bank but after lockdown quite a few people in the village were self isolating and hadn’t been near a shop. Those that were venturing out were nipping in and out and perhaps not taking the time to shop for others.
    So we (people in the village) donated cash instead and then our lady church warden contacted the food bank to ask what they needed.
    She then bought loads of things from Aldi and B&M.

    Our financial contribution bought 1000 meals, in total 600kg of food.
    We’re only a small village of 100 or so houses and I think this is a wonderful achievement.

    This is just some of the food donated.
    There were also meat pies, stewing steak, tinned fruit, puddings. Too many photos to include.

    That's fantastic @Carole

    6 months ago there was lots of people out there that thought food banks were an easy meal for the lazy unemployed.
    Times have indeed changed , it just a shame it needed a pandemic for food banks to be looked at how they should have been.

    Great work.

    People still think like that.
    People who think expensive haircuts, and designer clothes are important but won’t drop a few tins in to those less fortunate.

    Doesn't seem like much compensation for such a big job. Cheapskates!

    That seems only reasonable.

    There's a lot of work involved in moving a lawn.
