    What mildly interesting thing did you do today? 16th May 17 at 3:22 PM
    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

    I opened a mildly interesting envelope today - it was from the council tax department, giving news of a refund. However, on double checking the details, I found that it is actually addressed to another woman, c/o my address, for a different property about a mile away.

    I was mildly uninterested in the 'please hold, all of our staff are busy with other customers', whilst I waited for ten minutes on the phone, but fortunately I did not have a range of options (press 1for this, press 2 for that) as there was a direct line number on the refund invoice thingummybob.

    It's mildly interesting, but slightly concerning, that the person named on the refund wotsit had sent an email with a forwarding address - mine. I was asked if I was sure that this person hadn't been a previous tenant. Nope, definitely not. I've owned this house (with some help from the Halifax!) for almost 23 years, and in it's 56 year history, I am only the fifth owner. I knew two of the previous owners when I was a child and a teenager.

    So, now I have to write a mildly interesting letter to the council to explain that Ms X has not moved in and I do not know who she is.

    I live in a house with a single digit number - I'll say number 1. I doubt if it is an error as numbers 11, 21, and 31 (equivilant numbers ending in the same digit as my house number) are all houses owned and lived in by retired people. The original email also had my postcode on.

    So, mildly interesting but also mildly concerning.

    I've not done this yet, but I'm doing something interesting later - a moonlight walk for our local hospice. It's my first time, although the walk is in it's eleventh year. It would be lovely if we could see the moon, but rainclouds are hovering. I'm hoping to raise around £100 in addition to my registration fee.

    Keep your fingers crossed for dry weather on Merseyside from 9pm tonight everyone!

    I was on a bus which had a poster inside reminding people to vote in the June 23rd EU Referendum.
    I'm thinking that either the bus was very late or I've gone back in time.

    Been to a reunion at the church where I went to Girls' Brigade 30 years ago, with my Mum. The church needs a lot of money spending on it, and because of a dwindling congregation they've been forced to close and sell up. It was fascinating and strange tripping back down memory lane - not least being recognised on the doorstep by someone I haven't seen since 1988!! Apparently I haven't changed as much I as I think I have!!

    But it was a lovely afternoon meeting old friends and staff, watching the old band reuniting for a few rusty numbers and tomorrow we're going to the final church service

    Returned and picked up parcels at an Amazon Locker. I collected my parcel first to see if I was allocated the same locker to return another parcel. No it wasn't.

    Went over the road to Waitrose to buy the things I selected for MyWaitrose 20% off (the items were on offer too) and had my free coffee.

    I visited my neighbour downstairs (she's 80), a very nice woman who came to see me when I was in hospital last year.

    She is planning on visiting a friend in Bexhill and can't decide between flying or getting the train.
    I shot a vein in my neck and coughed up a Quaalude.

    I am mildly ploughing through a week of washing. I need lots of tea to keep me mildly going.

    The plane to Gatwick is a lot cheaper than the train but she would need to continue by train or bus.
