No STS last week as I had no books at all to report but I do have a couple this week. I've spent the week clearing through all the things my mum was been hoarding for years. I've never seen so many towels, plates and cups! We're donating everything to a local charity shop that my mum supported. When we went to deliver the clothes, an idiot woman reversed out of a nearby garage, missed my dad by inches and crashed into our car, destroying the bumper. 'Oh I didn't see you' she says, pulling out her chequebook and offering us money not to report it. Typical rich idiot who thinks they can wave money at you and make it go away. I nearly went for her throat! I was ill the whole afternoon thinking how my dad could have been hurt. Then we had the potato incident. Oh that was good. Back in February we bought a big bag of potatoes for my mum to make soup with. Just after that she started chemo and wasn't well enough to make it so we left the bag on a chair in the kitchen and some old clothes for use in the garden got thrown on top of them. So during our July heatwave this week we noticed a horrible smell in the kitchen and saw a big puddle of what looked like tar dripping down. Yes it was the fermented potatoes and the SMELL!!! UGH! Our eyes were watering and we were gagging as we cleaned up the mess and got rid of the buggers! It was an interesting week...!

    1. I ordered the wolf hat when I was sure that it fitted an adult head. A lot of these things are only in kids sizes. Now I need to name him! Hopefully we'll both like the free book...
