I was wondering how to distract a bear who is under the weather when his pal called. All I need to do now is keep the snacks coming. I provide healthy snacks, which bear vacuums up, but his pal prefers the high salt/high fat/high sugar stuff. I provide that as well.
I am going to have to get some new scales. I cannot be having with the ones I am using. The Lakeland scales had lasted years but finally gave up the will to weigh a few months ago. I found another set of scales from a while ago and I've been using them - but they are driving me crazy! I can't see the dratted read out because the dratted scales are in the dratted way. The platform for the bowl/plate etc goes over the display and I can't tell if it is grams or ounces. Mind you, the reason the apple crumble was so disappointing the other day was because I forgot to set the temperature on the new combination oven, the crumble measured okayish.
Tesco have some inexpensive scales. I've always preferred an electronic scale since a spider to stuck between the perspex cover and the needle on the old style scales. I suppose it will do. I'll put them on the next order and just continue to use the current scales with extra bad language.
Speaking of measuring, I am without a tape measure. Bear has a habit of acquiring my tape measures and I caught him with a cloth tape measure, stretching it out between his hands to strengthen himself. So much for accurate measuring! I'll have to pick one up from eBay - and lock it up!
Bear is far more expert than I at curtain twitching. Yesterday he complained about someone scraping the wall (next door repointing) and today he spotted the waste team truck 'blocking the road' - the truck was a little way out. Apparently something is Being Done about the bins where there was such an amazing argument the other day. I am just hoping he doesn't shout up with all of a nine year old's indignation about the weed smoking in the street.
