    Today on my stroll around Stafford Common I found...

    A Nina & Frederik Single (extended play 45 r.p.m)

    A golf ball

    A 5p piece

    And a laminated piece of card saying 'Toilet Trainer'.

    What have you found lately?

    This morning I found a pound coin in a trolley at Sainsburys that someone rich obviously didn't need.

    This afternoon I found some Vodka, accidentally poured some into a glass with some lemonade and after spending a happy afternoon 'working' on the iPad in the garden, I found I had a tan.

    Not a bad day all in all.

    I found myself with dog sitting outside The George in the sunshine talking b*ll*cks with two other gentlemen 'walking their dogs'. A very pleasant couple of hours indeed.

    After digging out an old handbag I'd forgotten about I also found £33.47 in it as an extra bonus.

    I got home last night to find people attempting to maintain my garden. Well, maintain is not the right word. Deforest? The grass was so long it was lying down. They did well, so I fed them. A fair exchange I feel.

    This morning I found the little grey stray cats hiding place. Its made a nest type thing behind the shed....and its been asleep down there all day!

    I've been feeding it for the last 2 months, its probably not even stray - just a chancer, anyhow, after 2 months of feeding it we have decided to call it Barry.

    LOL!

    Yesterday I found the third leg to the iron bath we dug up in the garden. I suspect I know where the fourth is, but I didn't really want to dig there. Could have made an interesting pond addition!

    Ooo why didn't you want to dig there?

    This morning found a huge spider under a plantpot, while that one distracted me another only slightly smaller one tried to run over my foot :(

    Just seemed to be out for a stroll, whilst the weather was nice. Wasn't keen on being ushered home...

    The pond is now pretty much dug, but where I think the last leg is (based on where I found the other three) is a bit too deep under the edge of the hole and may destabilise it. I'd probably be fine, but...

    Nah, people dig up gardens/patios. Ponds are only ever filled in, much safer :strange:

    Today I found that hitting my finger with a hammer, whilst carrying out some 'engineering' work on the mower, hurts!

    The bloke in EE shop most unhelpful!!!!!!! :angry:

    Told me to ring customer services as they can't deal with T-mobile customers from that shop......"this is an Orange shop"...and then turned and started talking to his mate who had just walked in. Funny, notice on old T-mobile shop window said all staff and business transferred to EE shop.(Used to have better service than that from the original T-mobile shop staff).
