DB was down at the stables getting more manure, I put on a loaf, I forgot to put on yesterday.
After we had our lunch I decided to put a lemon drizzle cake in the oven, was just about to put the hand mixer into the bowl when DB shouted it was raining, by the time we had taken everything off it had stopped!! Not happy as some of it was still decidedly damp, it went in the dryer.
Switched on the mixer, nowt........of all days it decided to pack in so ended up making a one step cake with a wooden spoon, it has not risen as much as it usually does, tough, it will have to be eaten. So now it looks as if I will have to buy a new hand mixer. I must admit it was over 20 years old and I have used it regularly, but after my experience with the toaster and kettle I doubt a replacement is going to last as long.
First thing DB went into the garden and discovered that M had left his tools on top of the dustbin, they had been there all night in full view of the road. Had we still been living in the town I very much doubt we would have found them still there. I phoned M, he is coming this afternoon anyway, so will pick them up then.
DB has to go for his dental appointment shortly. I am not going with him, will stay at home and save my money.
Almost forgot.....fire grate now fitted laid with some firelighter and stick to check the chimney tonight.
The old grate.
The new grate, fire laid ready to light.
