My landlord is a beekeeper with 16 hives.

Although the bees have been sleeping since I bought Millie the white Velomobile, now they are awake they are attracted to her and peeing on her in the garage. I have all these tiny yellow dots which are bee urine. They seem not to come off with water.

Anyone know how to remove bee wee from a white painted carbon velomobile without dissolving the velomobile?

(First world problem, clearly!)

Maybe you could compare notes with nikki's kayak...

Our lunch and its preparation were interrupted by the appearance of an escaped white rabbit bounding into our garden.

We don't know who the owners are or where they might live.

Rabbit was darting all over the place but did take some of the lettuce we offered before bounding off.

I don't think we can/could do anything...

Bunny rabbit came back but hopped off by the time I'd put out more lettuce.
What should we do if it returns when David is home?

Carrots, onions, simmer on a low heat for 90 mins.   Hmm, rabbit stew.  :P

I got home, last night, and needed to rush to get showered, changed into my bike gear, get the bike int he car then drive 10 miles to meet up with a group of cyclists to go out to tackle some hills.

Imagine my surprise to find that one of the cats (we suspect it is Oreo) had been sleeping on top of my cycling gear, then had decided to use it as a toilet!  Just what I needed!

The worrying bit was that the urine looked like it had some blood in it :(

We haven't seen him all of yesterday, nor today...
