Not a Good Day

Eileen - bear is usually unimpressed with me, especially when driving. He is fifteen, so this is normal. I see the kids on the school run and they all look about fit to drop. I think it's the combination of trying to catch up after all the lockdowns and a long school year. 

Sharon - DH is looking a lot better, so it's likely that it was a bug. 

I bought some mushrooms on sale. I can't remember the exact price, but I remember thinking - this is it! I froze a load of mushrooms a while ago and I'm reaching the end of those so I wanted to put some more in the freezer. 

I was on my fifth punnet (I never learn) and found a tiny fragment of metallic looking glass in the peels. 

I am almost 100% sure that this was a stray piece that had fallen on the floor and had picked something up when I retrieved the peel. But I know myself. I will never feel safe eating the mushrooms, and I will never feel right feeding it to the men. I've just junked them. If I had bunged them in the freezer, they would have sat there forever.

I'm going to pick up one punnet next and check carefully.

Bear had a job fair type thing in school. It's pretty bold of them, considering his year doesn't have their GCSEs for another twelve months. He was a little disappointed as they didn't have any computing employers, which is what he wants to do. He talked a lot about computers and what he wants to do on the way home. I understood about one word in twenty. I nodded, smiled and completely failed to sound the horn in tricky situations. 

Hugs and good health to all. 


  1. A career in computing is definitely the way forward to earn big money. Alexander is earning silly money after only a few years in the industry

  2. How scary that you found some glass in the mushrooms! I'm glad you didn't eat them! Too bad the school's job fair didn't include computer-related employers; hope the next one will include some. Maybe something Bear could mention to whoever is organizing these events?

  3. It's strange that the school didn't have computer employers at the job fair. Understanding one word in twenty is impressive ... I had similar conversations with my nephews when they were that age and I was never sure that they were still speaking English!
