It’s rained all day, we don’t feel like using the kitchen because of the internal politics and I’m not eating biscuits.
So what do we do?
Well, we have to feed and water the chickens whatever the weather.
We also had a good moan about various things (centre left in a mess, one of the new toilets out of order, someone has thrown some of our stuff out of the kitchen).
We did a stock take of what we have left in the kitchen.
We picked the last of the chillies and the cape gooseberries
We made pom-poms. I managed 14 today. I explored a method I found on the internet – using a fork to wrap the wool round. I hope these photos explain it. It’s tricky getting it tied tight enough and fitting the scissors in, but it seems to work OK for producing small pom-poms.
A fork with longer tines may have been better (as would sharper scissors) and I’m just wondering how much wool you’d need to wrap a garden fork…
Then we played indoor balloon volleyball/tennis. It’s a game we invented last year using a large balloon. The rules are not fixed, the umpiring is abysmal and the scoring is random, but it seems to work. So far nobody has died playing, we’ve had no tears, and we haven’t damaged the building (though as we’re under notice to quit I’m not sure I’m bothered).
Indoor Balloonball – just look at the speed of that serve!
As we told the group – only boring people get bored.
