So what does a bored carer do with her time ? Thats right you wander down the endless bookmarked list of stuff that you thought you might find useful in the Event , ive always been a bit of a survivalist nutcase , I blame my Nuclear Granny , she was always off on a protest or ranting about the Russians coming ..lol ...Or it could have been my dad , hed done some seriously strange stuff during the war and was a scarily good forager and poacher who thought it might be useful for an eight year old to know what was edible and what wasnt . He also some what worryingly taught me about poison plants and how to wipe people out with mushrooms, plus how to stab to kill ..Bless him he was a very strange bloke .
But saying that I can rustle up a salad and green veg all year round so long as nobody questions whats in it ..lol . Make roadkill oven ready, etc etc..so ive decided to start teaching the munchkin once the weather improves and i can amputate his fingers from his tablet . As a child you see no use in any of the stuff your taught , but some of it sinks in and remains useful .
Being as im not allowed to ebay due to the powers that be stating that i must do nothing to help myself and the current situation , merely sit here with my hand out going woe is me .
Ive figured out they cant stop the garden working for me , theres plenty of room for my strange growing hobbies alongside my usual veg patch and i have an endless interest in the uses of native and other plants , not so much in there medicinal uses but there uses for other things. daft stuff like nettle fibre for weaving etc etc .
This weeks interesting fact , all the ranting about them prescribing Metformin to those who "might get type 2 diabetes " back in the 16th century older people used to drink Lilac tea daily , thats right Metformin is Lilac tea in a pill , im stating this as a generality ive no interest in making my own, but an interesting fact .
So from time to time you may get a light relief post , just a break from DWP wars , even more crafty strangeness once the swollen thumbs go down , a weird after effect from the snot and sore throat bug doing the rounds. I'm afraid being a full time carer isnt very mentally stimulating , much as I love my other half , theres only so much crap TV i can watch with him , plus being unable to go out until we sort something out with the DWP is soul destroying . I managed a jumble sale yesterday funded by my son and I came back with 3 books and a nightie ..lol
