    That's how it is on my Kindle too. It comes with about 25 apps on the home page, none of which I use, and they can't be deleted.

    Congrats! Did you dress up for the day and throw out candy to younger classes only to gun them down with water guns? That's what Danish kids do on their last school day. :D

    I am hoping so too. Otherwise I am having as much luck as Mrs and Mr B are with their babies.

    I think everyone has a useless apps folder on an iphone :D

    Watch can definitely be deleted.

    Wallet can’t be deleted... but I use it. I use Apple Pay regularly (paying with contactless is widespread in the UK) and also have the StoCard app for loyalty cards and a chosen few are in my Wallet so I can access them quickly from the home screen.

    App Store, Photos, Camera, Clock, Find iPhone, Safari and Wallet are the only apps that cannot be deleted. It is much better than it used to be.

    Good afternooning all.

    I had my hair cut and then the weather was so lovely hat I went and did some gardening instead of the ironing. It was much more enjoyable than the ironing would have been, although it is quite humid so a shower was necessary afterwards undoing the good work the hairdresser did on my hair

    I had a bush that had well outgrown its slot and, rather than dig it out, I have cut it right back and given it the chance to grow back. If it dies, it will be replaced. It’s had some fertiliser and is now getting a good soak from the the hose.

    Good afternoon, roommates! I was swamped with work, volunteering, and, well, migraines. Almost looking forward to the weekend for a change!

    I accompanied daughter’s Year 2 as well as Year 3 classes to the Zoological Museum in Copenhagen. They have their own Diplodocus, much like the British Dippy, only called Misty.

    View attachment 272979

    It was discovered by a 13-year-old and his younger brother who had been sent away to “just dig over there” and not disturb their paleontologist dad.

    The teachers then surprised me with a large and heavy gift as a token of appreciation. I very much want to keep it but am not sure how we can possibly take it to Canada:

    The migraines are due to stress, exacerbated by an unpleasant situation involving some parents in our class—and me. A little private hell I brought upon myself. Serves me right for volunteering so much (and overestimating people’s intelligence). :rolleyes:

    Sorry for being AWOL. Which, in Canadian English, seems to be AWL—from my reading this week. :)

    Her previous owner kept two different Greek subspecies together leading to Margo, she was the only one to hatch so she’s quite special. The lady couldn’t look after them any more so she offered them to the breeder who raised mine, he could only take the parents so he gave me Margo:)

    Maybe you can use it as a strange-looking suitcase and pack it full of your undies and what nots.

    Slow and steady, Yvonne. Work is not a wolf — it won’t run off into the woods. ;)
