Am now on 15 days annual leave. I look forward to the flu that will hit tomorrow morning.
Potatoes for fuel, must've had a bumper crop.
Potatoes baking in the ash, but they really ought to be covered by the ash if you are doing it properly
Or in a bean tin.
Or wrapped in foil.....
Both Solar and Wind are the primary contributors today !!! Having just got back from the coast I can believe it too ...
Think I've discovered the massive spindly spiders route in and out of the house from their 'home' in the electric box outside. Making my tea , one's just dropped down from the cupboard next to the cooker (where the electic box is positioned behind) , swaggered past the hot toaster and more or less over my hand on the side and proceeded to absail down the gap at the side of the cooker. Looked like a well practised route.
Disappeared by the time I'd got a glass and coaster to capture the little devil. On closer inspection , for the first time in 30+ years, noticed the slight gap between the cupboard and wall tiles
This chap could be useful to you - he has learned some useful spider-related stuff today.
The spider needs to be on the same side of the glass as you are, if you're considering eating it.
After a few minutes to collect himself and clear his head, he seemed OK and wandered off.
After watching hair-cutting youtubes all morning, and standing poised with the clippers ready to attack hubby as he finished work for the day, got told..... "Do it properly this time!!!" (Son had to put it right as soon as we could form our 'bubble' after my last efforts )
Just got the best compliment off hubby that I could have .."Wow, It's better than Francesco's have ever done it"
Bit of a fluke , but pleased with my new found barber skills .
Don't F around with hubby's hair again
We decided to go to Formby for a while yesterday. Today has been spent cleaning the house as the amount of dust that has accumulated since the beginning of March is not insignificant, though not as bad as the amount of sand that is coating the rear windows and frames. Got a window cleaner booked in for tomorrow for that.
Very pleasant walk through the dunes to the beach this afternoon. About the usual number of folks for this time of year and nobody doing anything stupid.
It's so nice just to be somewhere different, though the daily commute to Shrewsbury is going to be a bit of a pig if I decide to do it daily.
Is Formby the beach that we saw lots of statues going in to the sea from the train windows en-route from Southport to Liverpool?
That might be Crosby beach, but I've not been to either, so I'm not sure...
I so want to go to a beach... But I'm so scared of going anywhere other than work and 2 other places that I've visited lately .....
No. In the ash under a fire, preferably a wood fire.
No, that's Crosby.
Formby is famous for the dunes as well as the beach. Very handy for Anfield, without the hideousness that is the City of Liverpool, back in the days when football matches still had spectators...
My son was filmed by a TV channel, talking about his situation in Leicester during the extended lockdown, his pub specifically but also the effect on other businesses in Leicester.
This particular TV channel regularly has viewers of over 100 million.
I’d post the link but it’s all in Russian.
How bizarre, that a Russian TV channel managed to find my son to interview, and that the Leicester lockdown is of interest in Russia.
Another reason that I’m not posting the link is that he hadn’t combed his hair.
Shame! Shame! Shame!
I have just popped down to the pub.
It was only to perform some essential work, of course.
The 'new' clock in the auditorium annex was striking twelve on every hour...
I took a few tools down with me, not knowing what I was going to find - and realised that I had used a bag that I got, in July 1976, from the excellent chap who was the manager of the Midland Bank at that time.
"Could I have a hundred quid for a month?"
"Certainly, have a hundred and ten, you never know what might crop up. Is there anything else?"
"Well, could I have a few canvas cash bags?"
"Certainly" (Makes quick phone call....)
