Tuesday Tattle



I walked into work in a chill breeze but with the sun shining on me this morning.  I splashed out money for milk for the fridge and entered the museum by the back door, the best way I find.  There I set things up, cleared the mess around the sand pit (archaeological digs for kids) and filled up the stickies (a trail for wee kids) and cleared space on the desk while I tried to sort out what to do.  The main feature of the day was the approach of a herd of children and attempting to picture some of the stock just in case we need to post pics somewhere.
When things got going I was busy, I was on my own today, and I never stopped except when I stopped and even worse I never got any tea!  It's a disgrace I say.  However in between taking pictures and watching the mum's leave, when the kids are settled indoors many run off to shop or sit gossiping in the cafe, I dealt with lots of grans and granddads bringing the kids to fill in a couple of hours.  They all appear to be happy with the museum but fail to spend enough money in the shop!



The beauty of the rain hammering down yesterday meant I was forced to remain indoors and attend to things that required attention.  Some corners of the house have been cleared and the spiders inhabiting the area removed.  Next time I finish a few repairs and clean out the corner under the desk, that has been waiting for a year or so.  In fact I was so busy I accidentally cleaned parts of the oven!  At least the removable bits, the rest can wait until Spring.  



However I am so knackered after a day running around and have not had time for my siesta yet!  Here I am trying to watch the Champions League, scribble this and keep my eyes open, life is so hard for some of us...
oops second half beginning....

Hope you got to eat something, somewhere in there ~

You should get yourself a thermos flask or similar and then for days like that you could take your own hot tea with you...simple solution.

My spiders and I live in perfect harmony. I gave up the ongoing battle with them because they always won. I waved the white flag in the end - the easiest solution.

You need to import geckoes...they do a wonderful job on cleaning up their competitors for space...but they do tend to treat the printer as their loo.

Carol, I lived on the chocolates that were lying around!

Lee, Spiders require a feather duster and an open window! We now find huge spiders coming inside the houses these days, they can go to Aussieland as far as I'm concerned.

Fly, Send some over!

No wonder you need to go out to get bread to lather with all those preserves and jams
