    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

    Finally got OH's photos, apps etc on to new phone.

    There was a good reason why they hadn't transferred: he'd never, ever backed them up to iCloud. It took all night on the old phone!

    Then I had to reset the new phone and turn off wifi on every damn thing else to Disney load his stuff! I need a drink!

    I mildly applied body butter on my hair, instead of conditioner. I then mildly had to wash my hair again.
    Mildly interesting that I now cannot read the difference.

    I learned that hamsters are illegal in Australia (and Hawaii, among other places).

    I stripped a few beds (2 of them, you have to take the mattresses off to get the sheets on and off). I did some cleaning, put away 6 baskets of clean laundry and did 5 more machine loads. I also stripped down and washed all the bits off a Dyson vac as it smelt like farts when I was using it But that was work.

    Slightly less interesting is what I did at home. Walked the dog (twice), will shortly be having a shower and hair wash, then having me dinns and after that watching telly and generally vegging

    The highlight today was making a white tea with 1 sugar for the plumber.

    Paid €0.83 for a can of baked beans this morning.....I'd never have shown such extravagance in our local Morrisons.

    I went to Waitrose today instead of my usual Wednesday - it's nice to shake things up a bit, it stops you getting in a rut.

    I realised that someone I've been talking to online is involved in something legal but I think it's morally wrong and in order to get something I want I'll have to help them do something I disagree with. Time to be practical instead of conscientious?

    I'm hoping that this is interesting this evening - my Guide unit are learning a bit about the construction industry at the moment, and we're also going to write to an Australian unit for the first time.

    I'm going out for breakfast and may have bacon with my scrambled eggs instead of salmon. But possibly not. I have a twenty minute walk to mull it over .

    Following on from the mildly interesting fact about hamsters,
    I just learned this equally mildly interesting fact about guinea-pigs ..........

    I mildly did some AmDram practice for this evening's session.

    I also sorted some mildly useful AmDram exercises on my iPad.

    In a minute I will mildly get changed, and run through one mild routine, before I mildly drive there.

    So what is the mild term for a mild amateur drama queen then? Mildly interesting answers on a postcard please.

    Do you not have a magic laundry basket in your house then? I put my dirty laundry in the washing basket in the bathroom and it reappears freshly cleaned back in my wardrobe a few days later.

    However, it has strangely stopped working since my Lovely Cousin became ill a few days ago. Last time she was ill the same thing happened, then started working again when she got better.
    I wonder if there is a mildly interesting correlation between the two events.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    All my screwdrivers are cordless.

    Today I 'phoned the council to chase up my previous contact with them when I reported not one, but two flooded drains on the road adjacent to our home.

    I hope the fact that I reported two identical floods does not elevate this above the mildly interesting status. I would hate to be excluded from this mildly interesting discussion.

    I mowed the front lawns

    What's midly interesting about that is two of them are over 100 metres long and 50 metres wide

    What may push that above midly is, I used the mower on mulch so I've no trip to the tip with grass to make

    I visited my Mother-in-Law and did a Tesco shop, where I discovered they'd reintroduced their value sausage rolls so I bought 3 packs of 8 I also bought 2 pairs of "emergency" jeans in a size bigger than normal
