I've been getting ready for the car boot today. I've boxed up the books and DVDs and I'll do some more tomorrow. I like everything to be in order when I arrive so it's just a case of putting it out. This stems from my first car boot experience 20 years ago where I naively expected to turn up, set up my 'display', then open my 'shop'. Instead, as we drove to our spot we had people running after the car. When we got out they were literally stood at the boot and we had to fight our way through to open it. Mum and Dad had come with us and when Dad got out with his flask of coffee somebody tried to take it off him. Me and Mum couldn't do anything for laughing.
Amy brought her focaccia bread home last night which she'd made on Tuesday. That's another reason why we don't eat anything she makes, she leaves it hanging around school for days on end. It actually looked very nice but once again it was the bin that got to eat it.
For the past few days we've had 2 wood pigeons in our garden. It's surprising how noisy they are flying in and out of the trees going about their business. I don't know whether this is Mr or Mrs, but last night the two of them were both flirting outrageously with each other. It looked a lot like the old playground game of 'Kiss Catch' was going on and our garden seemed to be 'base'.Mind you, none of their frolickings seemed to bother Sparky, who for all the fluttering of wings, cooing and leaf rustling that was going on, managed to sleep through the whole thing.
