Rayburn diary – Day 3

We’re learning – we’re gradually getting the hang of it.

Overnight banking was fairly successful again and although radiators felt cold on Sunday morning, the house generally felt warm and once again no matches were needed to get it going again. The radiators warmed up pretty quickly. Sunday was a pretty warm day anyway, so the house was actually on the hot side of warm! The kitchen may have even been verging on being able to describe it as hot! While I was gardening, I left the door open.

Although the central heating wasn’t a problem; cooking was. After 15 minutes I gave up on toast in the morning, and finished off in the toaster. Then in the evening, I put in jacket potatoes and they didn’t cook nearly as quickly as they had done on Saturday. In fact I couldn’t get the oven temperature past B for Bake. After an hour I decided to re-read the instruction booklet and found that we should have had the cooker/boiler damper on ‘C’ not ‘H’. So I flicked it over and fiddled with the flue chamber damper – one part of the booklet tells you to close it, and another part tells you to have it half way. Spin wheel advice varied as well – I had it open to begin with, but then almost closed it. Whatever I did; I did it right because the oven temperature rose and within 10 minutes it was on the o of ‘Roast’. Soon after the potatoes were done and once again tasted divine!

Also, my daughter had her first bath in almost two years! She was so pleased as she hates showers! She was so excited; it was cute to see, and she said afterwards how relaxed she felt. Looking forward to my first bath now.

A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz

Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….

Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
