The main event so far is all the flocks of geese going over , usually a sign that is going to be really cold really soon , we managed a few hours fishing yesterday , it was very quiet and swampy plus the RAF were up to something, so being just up the road from the base we had a great air display to watch , the wildlife is always a pleasure we were Kingfisher watching yesterday and i was mushroom spotting , we have found a patch of puffballs just emerging so if i get the chance i will pop down and get some , theres also tons of field mushrooms as well.
Decorating has nearly finished in daughters old room , we are undecided whether its going to be bathroom or the stairs next , no rush we have all winter . Nice quiet weekend just me and sarcastic son laying carpet tiles , Mr BH is off to some event with useful son , glad im not invited , i did point out that if he took me to the quilt show i would go to Truckfest with him , that knocked that one on the head ..lol
The reason im feeling smug is this is the first time we have ever had heating oil before December , not that it will be used till its much colder , its still at put a jumper on or grab a blanket on the sofa weather , i gather monsoon season is back tonight .
Sarcastic son emerged from the shed with a plastic bin full of his clothes that for the past two years hes been acusing me of losing in the wash !! to say they stank of mold was an understatement , he was going to bin them but i told him i was willing to try and save them , more for the fact that i quite liked some of the fabric . So it was boil wash with extra oxy , the stuff came out of them like tar , cleaned them but they still stank , so then it was half a bottle of sterilising fluid and a load of apple hair conditioner that nobody would use , the chemical reaction triggered a foam party , they still stank but with added apple . So then as a last ditch attempt we tried the great outdoors they have been on the line for a week in the monsoon and yesterday after the sunshine the smell has finally gone and he gave it all to me , including the Japanese Dragon shirts and loads of denim for a project i have in mind , he did take his goth tea shirts and a couple that shrank he asked if i could make cushions out of ...lol
