    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

    Went looking for new curtains for the newly-decorated spare room.
    £200 to make!

    No chance. The old ones are being washed as I type.

    Today I didn't have my regular siesta, so more of what I didn't do really.

    I didn't know we got Stag Beetles in this country, I thought they were the things that rolled mounds of dung along in ancient Egypt

    As it's already swelteringly hot, I did all my housework just wearing knickers.
    Hell in a handcart either way.

    I discovered a caterpillar which turns into a mullein moth in the garden. It's long, mainly white with yellow & black dotty markings

    I looked up where a car park was , and the parking charges.

    It's gone up 20% on last year's prices.

    So today I have sat on some chewing gum on the bus seat which I noticed when I stuck to my chair at work and noticed a slight minty smell.
    I went to dentist for a filling and a couple x-rays. Then at lunch time a massive seagull which was carrying a dead pigeon nearly flew into my head

    Put some washing out to dry, it is a good day for it, fairly windy mph which is classed as a "moderate breeze" on the Beaufort scale, just 2 mph short of a "fresh breeze"
