The slabs outside were wet when we got up, but the rain appeared to have been very patchy to say the least.
We were on the 10am bus into town to go to the library and the market, the library is closed Monday and Tuesday next week, so we both needed to be sure we had enough book. I have 7, one of which is a really thick one, so should take me a few days to read.
Home for lunch lentil soup with fresh bread, I had a pear DB had yogurt. He has requested stovies for supper, so a fat laden meal with the last of the crumble for dessert.
After lunch DB potted on 2 courgette and a cucumber plant into bigger pots and brought in the chairs as the sky went very dark, more rain on the way I guess.
Last night our neighbour drew our attention to what she thought were wasps going into a hole in one of the flower beds. I have had a look this morning and I think they are hornets, as far as I know wasps do not nest underground. I looked on the web and the advice seems to be to use slightly dilute washing up liquid sprayed into the hole at dusk, when all the insects are in the nest. There was little activity this morning but when I looked at lunchtime there were several flying round and then going into the hole. We need to get rid of them I am allergic to any form of sting and also insect bites and I would hate to see the children get stung. Apparently K has a wasps nest and also wild bees in his bedroom chimney. He spoke to the land lady but she has said he has to pay for their removal himself. She will only do anything if they actually get into the flat. The mood in the house is getting rather bolshie to say the least. We are undecided what to do. If we stick it out to the bitter end all the other apartments will be empty and we will be heating into cold space. We just have to keep our fingers crossed that we find something suitable before the really bad weather comes.
I made chocolate chip muffins, we have eaten all the cake......
