    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 would've thought that was more than mildly interesting!!!

    I saw it in January and loved it, I still prefer Edward Scissorhands though.

    I bought a small bag of compost, so I can repot a small plant (should grow into a tree one day) from the bucket into the bigger pot.... well... owning the compost is stage I. Getting round to it is Stage II. Only time and the weather will decide the difference between the two .... and I probably need to "do something technical" like get some big stones for the bottom few inches of the pot.... I'm clueless really, but I've got the compost!

    Not done anything mildly or otherwise interesting today, yet, except eat a cheese pasty and sing a song.


    Oh! I did try a new facepack, and now my skin is as mildly smooth as a baby's bottom!

    Finally took my bag of clothes with a few mugs and other things - plus two canvas prints to the charity shop. As I bought some new ones to replace them last week,

    Wish I did it earlier before my right leg was playing up.

    Maybe slightly more than mildly interesting.....

    Our doctor sent a form for my son to have medical exemption from paying for prescriptions, due to him now being 19 and having a qualifying condition. The form has been returned today because my son has not signed the form.

    I rang the NHS health costs team (number is on the letter) and asked if I can sign for my son as he does not have the mental capacity to understand - however, there is nowhere for a representative to sign and to say why the applicant cannot sign. I was told that if he can wite his name (he can), then he must sign. I then read out the declaration which states 'I understand...' and pointed out that my son does not understand - he has a severe learning disability, and I am his legal appointee for the DWP. My son still has to sign. I disagreed, and said that there must be some sort of arrangement for those who cannot sign, either because they cannot write their own name, or because, like my son, they have a severe learning disability and cannot understand why they are writing their name. Eventually I was told to sign it myself, but to put a letter in to say why my son has not signed, and someone will make a decision.

    Surely my son is not the only person who is in this position, and there should be a section for legal appointees to sign on a patient's behalf (as I do when he needs surgery).

    That sucks - know a few people who have children who don't understand things like your son. Though they are still under 18.

    Instead of mushroom ciabatta for my lunch at work.......which I have most days........I added a bit of meat in the form of sausage. Was much too meaty for me so will go back to my mushrooms only which I enjoy mildly more.

    Walking past a rubbish skip this afternoon I noticed a cardboard box by the side of the skip. It drew my attention, and I found several packs of unopened Carrefour yummy bakery goods, all of which had just passed their sell-by date.....straight into our day-packs tyvm.

    Yuk to the lovage but have never tried sea beets. Think I've had the purslane, is it similar to samphire?

    Not really. It is small oval leaves, which you strip off the stalks and braise, or just chuck it into stir fries. They look a bit like the succulent Portulaca, to which they are related, but not as fleshy.

    It has a very delicate flavour, slightly salty, and is chock full of omega-3s, which is useful for vegetarians as it is the vegetable with the greatest amount of those, next to fish.

    It was the first time I'd had lovage and I like it......it had a very interesting flavour!

    The sea beets were very nice too..... a crunchier texture than most leafy veg, and a hint of citrus in the flavour.

    My veg supplier is coming up trumps at the moment!

    Another super favourite of mine is sorrel, as it has a lemony sourness which is nice in salads!
