The trouble with home made bread though, is that it goes stale too quickly and as there is only two of us it goes stale before I eat it all normally. That's if I can resist eating it all as soon as it comes out of the oven.
Just got back from Clumber Park, a National Trust place where we often go to walk the dog. It pissed down whilst we were there, but at least nearly everyone else buggered off and it was nice and quiet.
I saw a tree that had been in a bit of an accident. Probably the recent snow that made it too heavy for itself, of maybe the wind. Possibly lightning, who knows.
Most people think this is because you will get electrocuted if the tree gets hit by a streak of lightning. It's not, as wood is not a particularly good conducter of electricity.
I once knew a tree that was a particularly good conductor of an orchestra, but that's a different story.
The real reason is that when the tree gets hit the lightning heats the sap which expands and makes the tree explode. You would get covered in boiling tree-sap which would not be so good.
You see, every day is a learning day here.
There is a lake at clumber, a big fuck-off lake. It is so long you sometimes mistake it for a river. The people that work there do too, as next to one of the bridges that cross this
I'm telling you, this is one seriously big fuck-off lake, 87 acres or 352,000m², so how you can mistake it for a stream astounds me.
Anyway, it got me wondering, if you can fish down
Mind you, I wonder if the sign confuses them?
They probably ignore it, knowing that they are in a lake and not a stream.
She just stood there, looking all miserable in the warm water, probably thinking 'I wish I was in a nice cold, dirty river.'
I've got one of those big corner baths. People think they are really good, great to have, but they're not, they're shite.
They aint long enough to lie in properly, and if you try to sit up you end up slipping as you have nothing to prop yourself against due to the curve.
And unless you have an oversize hot water tank, you fill it about a quarter full and run out of hot water.
Not that I use it, except for bathing the dog, I prefer the shower.
Maybe I should try the dog in there.............
