Sounds much fun, BGers.
Flapping about sorting Furrin Trip stuff. Handy hint: Post Office furrin exchange rates are better than anyone else’s atm.
I have a Post Office Travel Money Card which I can pre-load with Euros ( other currencies are available) , & the rates are usually reasonable
Halifax Clarity Card is highly spoken of too
I realise that this doesn’t help for Finland though…
Finland is in the Eurozone, so the travel card would work there; it would be no help for Sweden (Kronor) and Denmark (Kroner).
I use a Clarity card for credit-cardy things, but the Post Office for boring old cash.
I knew that there was summat odd about that when I wrote it

Brain Fog rules here, today
I recall a business-news prog on BBC WS radio some time last year in which they mentioned that Sweden has gone cashless to a very large extent - I think they said that in some places some businesses (e.g. taxis) no longer normally accept payment in cash.
Yeah, and a lot of Swedes are not happy about it.
Meanwhile I have Repaired the Fan & am now vaguely cool again. (Yeah, babes, I never stopped being cool, innit? I’ll stop now.)
It is Too Damn Hot.
I have been out finding some Hozelock watering spikes to put into the plants while we are away, so they don’t have to be watered every day but instead get the water they need in a steady sort of way; now I have to find at least six old plastic lemonade bottles to fix to them.
Ooh, a pub visit is called for!
Who’s Brian Fog when he’s at home?
<parrot>don’t be so dense . . . .</parrot>
Honestly Hercule, he gets no better, does he ?
Orff to the Surgery to hand deliver a card to my main GP who is retiring - Best Archers Tradition, don’tcha know…
Also to post a couple of cards
I have just had a magical experience
A gorgeous butterfly landed on my hand and stayed long enough to be photographed
That’s a rather splendid experience.
The bull will be cajoled into posting an photo later
And on the subject of photography, today’s assignment is “cloudscapes”…
The shelving is done, and in place, and has things on it.
The bbq is lit and large swathes of the terrace have been made accessible p
I am recovering from watching The Game and I am Very Pleased with the result.
Happy bee, me.
Read that as “inaccessible”…
Orf to me nest to get some mild coolth at last.
Celebratory Gin, Soo
Or Slammers ?
