Common Cockchafer or MaybugMelolontha melolontha. At 20-30mm in length this beetle is often seen flying towards lights during the warm evenings of May and June. The May Bug used to be a serious pest to farmers as the larvae eat their way through large quantities of the roots of crops in fields.
Oh and edjane's washing

Thrips (Order Thysanoptera) are tiny, slender ]insects with fringed wings (thus the scientific name, from the ]Greekthysanos (fringe) + pteron (wing)). Other common names for thrips include thunderflies, thunderbugs, storm flies, and corn lice. Thrips species feed on a large variety of sources both plant and animal by puncturing them and sucking up the contents. A large number of thrips species are considered pests, because they feed on plants with commercial value. Some species of thrips feed on other insects or ]mites and are considered beneficial, while some feed on fungal spores or pollen. So far around 5,000 species have been described. Thrips are generally tiny (1 ]mm long or less) and are not good flyers, although they can be carried long distances by the wind. In the right conditions, many species can explode in population and swarm everywhere, making them an irritation to humans.
Like the words ]sheep or ]moose, the word thrips is used for both the singular and plural ]forms. So while there may be many thrips there can also be a solitary thrips. The word thrips is from Greek, meaning wood louse.][1]

I wouldn't like a dryer because they use a lot of electricity don't they?

I just dry our washing in front of the fire in the winter.

I would be lost without a car, not many of my family or friend's live near me and the shop's are pretty dire near me too.
