Another very grey and cold day. We had a few spots of rain this morning,
Did the Friday clean, whilst I had the mop and hot water I went round to the front and cleaned up the messy gas box and also did the window cills all round, just a couple of minutes each and they are sparking again.
We went to the feast last night, as last year the children were just running round like mad things and there was one table who talked and laughed their way through the whole evening. It was almost impossible to hear the answers to the quiz or the raffle numbers.
We sat with a couple of friends from the coffee morning and we took June home afterwards, she is partially sighted, I did not like to think of her crossing the road in the dark. She does carry a torch which she uses, but the road is used like a race track and anyone hurtling round the bend would not see her until it was too late. We both spoke about the evening and, like us, June said she will not go next year.
I may be old fashioned, but children seem to be allowed to run riot, there is no discipline at all, and they do not seem to be encouraged to sit at the table and eat a meal. Mind you, with the example set by some of the parents its not surprising. All my children were brought up to sit at the table for a meal and were only allowed to leave when everyone had finished. One of my grand daughters allows her child to walk round with food in her hand, mind you she does not sit up to the table either, eats with a plate on her knee watching the goggle box.
Quiet rest of the day, I will spend most of it reading, might just go and do a bit of clearing up in the sewing room, the 17th is not far away now............
DN will be going for his siesta shortly, he was in the garden whilst I tackled the sitting room and kitchen, the sweetcorn are all finished, so the plants have been taken out. One last courgette that thinks its a marrow, some beetroot and carrots, so the veg drawer in the fridge is full.
Fish and wedges tonight, so an easy supper. Need to get the prok out for tomorrow.
