    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

    Took notice of the alarm going off at 0515, so we could get the wheels in motion to get our mildly interesting youngest son out of his pit in order to get a National Express bus to Heathrow Terminal 5 at 0725.

    Mildly interesting chore accomplished.....he'll soon be on his way back to the Magic Kingdom.

    Looked at Streetview of some addresses and wondered why Google have done some streets 6 times in that time and my old address in Wakefield, just the once, about 12 months after I left there.

    36 degrees here and have had to have the ceiling fan on setting number 2 rather than setting number 1, which was milder and didn't knock papers on the floor.
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    I mildly looked at my empty bottles of wine - then mildly thought, did I mildly drink that much.

    I have used plain flour in my pizza dough mix instead of bread flour, as I didn't have any. I await the results.

    Had a lazy day today, sitting in front of the box with the fan on full blast.

    Just feasted on some bits of steak I found lurking in the freezer and home made raspberry trifle liberally laced with framboise (I only use it for cooking, it's been sitting in the cupboard for 2 years, still plenty left)

    Am hoping to order some more Bacheldre bread flour soon.

    I learned that Lancaster is not too far from Penrith where my brother and his family are going on hols to Center Parcs. Doh.

    Ran our workplace almost single handedly.
    Well, there were two of us to be fair. And one had called in sick but came in just to cover my lunch

    Nothing mild about today - it is scorching hot.
    I will, however, find a mildly interesting thing to do.

    I changed the cushion of the sofa around. Noticed they had been put in the wrong covers or even upside down last time I washed them about 2 months ago. Sofa looks "right' now

    Oh, forgot, watched a hawk lift a magpie clean out of the sky and carry it off

    Although that was more then mildly interesting as I've never seen a hawk so close before, certainly never seen one catch dinner

    I sat in Wetherspoons having breakfast and there was an elderly couple that I'm aquainted with who thought that the air conditioning was too cold, in fact the wife put her husband's jacket on to warm up ..... Outside it was about 30

    I was born and grew up in Lancaster.....great place then. Lovely smallish market town, great access to some of the best scenery in UK

    Then along came the University, slowly slowly, before picking up pace, and now engulfs the area....a one-way only traffic jam most of the day, ruined by town planners.

    The M6 between Lancaster an Penrith is a great stretch of road, passing through some truly gorgeous countryside.
