    We all do things everyday that are interesting which we tell people about but we never talk about the mildly interesting things we have done

    At work today, there was no clean tea spoons so i folded a large straw in half and used it as a spoon to stir my tea.

    Its not the most interesting thing, but it is mildly interesting

    Its not that we have more patience as we grow older, its just that we're too tired to care about all the pointless drama

    I put an X on a piece of paper and put it in the ballot box. Then went and bought myself a croissant.

    A small bag of kettle chips will set you back 59p. I think Co-op do 2 packs of Walkers for £1

    Took the green bin in.

    Contemplated whether is is worth me voting given it requires a 16% swing against Labour to change the result.

    Put a load of washing on, went to vote, then purchased a new clothes horse (current one is lame due to a broken leg!) before returning home to hang the washing on New clothes horse.
    Dogs return to eat their vomit, just as fools repeat their foolishness. There is no more hope for a fool than for someone who says, "i am really clever!"

    I remember around 1987, when I went to my friend's after school or during a school holiday, her mum gave us a £1 to share to spend at the paper shop at the bottom of the road. We bought 2 Mars, 2 packs of Walkers and 2 packs of Fruit Polos. First two were 20p each and the Polos, 10p.

    Now they are 55p, 55p and 60p. My friend's mum would now give £3.40 for the above. Both Mars and crisps increased by 2.75 times and Polos - 6 times!

    Crisps in Australia are crazy prices for some reason, maybe they import them but then again their Fish n Chips are not massively expensive. Crisps are not that expensive in the Supermarket anyway, these are the prices in a work canteen.
