Last Tuesday I had my first charity shop visit for months and found two Action Men for Jacob's visit. I had no idea if boys still like Action Men and couldn't remember at what age - but it's something a bit different................. Soon found out 4 year olds who are mad on cars and dinosaurs aren't interested in muscly toy men wearing camouflage gear! Oh well perhaps when he's older.
It was a good thing they didn't stay over Saturday night, he would have been woken with a start as I'd just about nodded off when there was an explosion of fireworks somewhere very close - although not in our lane. Looked at the clock -a few minutes after 11pm - a tad inconsiderate I thought, not something that's a common occurrence around here thank goodness, the fireworks didn't last long and I was soon asleep again.
I've returned all my library books through the returns letter box at the nearest library building to get them back into the circulation system. Suffolk libraries are sort-of open with an odd system of ring, say what type of books you'd like and staff will pick a selection for you and ring you to say when you can collect them - all seems a bit of a faff - and how many people are going to want someone else to pick their books for them? Hopefully when the mobile library comes later this month he'll have the books that have been requested and waiting for me since March.
Good news about swimming pools re-opening later this month, I'm looking forward to finding out how it will work at the small pool where I go - on line booking, lane swimming and limited numbers for sure.
A very delicious addition to the food produced at home list last week - The first Green Beans - so good.
Quite a lot to do this week as I want to get organised to do a week of eating local food again, also have grass to cut, much weeding in the veg garden and strawberry runners need pegging into pots to make new plants and probably many other jobs that I can't remember at the moment..
