I have no interest in the Commonwealth Games however I am pleased that Tunnock Teacakes got the recognition they deserve in the opening ceremony.
I spent the day footering. I did lots of ironing while listening the The Archers - it is utterly ridiculous - and I a washed a few things by hand and I spent an hour or so in the garden cutting back brambles and then I sat in the sun and finished my novel. I kept getting distracted by a little wren with a big voice that was darting about in the garden.
Later in the afternoon I made a batch of scones which taste quite nice but have not risen properly. I can't work out what I am doing wrong. I am convinced that English buttermilk is just not right for Irish scones. It is impossible to replicate my mother's scones using it.
After dinner TB and I went for a little stroll. There are a lot of cats in this area and TB stopped to say hello to every one of them which also allowed him to surreptiously check out the houses they live in. Once again we managed to complete our walk without attracting the attention of the police. I spotted two things I need to write to the Council and complain about.
Five more days at work and then my staycation starts.
