Re: Bumble Bees in the Bathroom

Solved! I was in the bath when bumble bee no.3 appeared from nowhere! Have checked outside and the bath overflow pipe has enough space between it and the bricks for them to get in.

Re: Bumble Bees in the Bathroom

Thanks Tony but I cant work out how thw second one got in? Unless they arrived together and that one was still under the bath when I shut the windows? The cat is convinced there's rats under the bath, maybe there's a way in from outside that the bees found?

Re: Bumble Bees in the Bathroom

There seems to be a lot about with the unusual warm weather but I can't understand how the second one got in the bathroom when the windows were shut! Going to have a bath in a minute so will be wary of buzzing noises under the bath!

Re: whats in your kitchen?

Beercans. Lots of beercans. For some reason I always seem to buy empty ones. Last edible thing I saw in there was a rat.

Re: Leprechauns, Fairies and other little people

When I was small I lost a tooth and put in under the pillow and woke to find a shiny sixpence. A few days later we had pig's head for dinner so I removed a tooth from it and told my mother I had lost another tooth and would put it under my pillow. In the morning it was gone and in it's place was a p...
