Last night madam’s school had a fund-raiser this was mice racing. For those of you who don’t know (and I didn’t) it is exactly what it says on the tin! Oh yes we know how to live here in Devon!
The mice are in a contraption similar to thisand as tables we could buy a lane in an auction. Some lanes went for as much as £42!! If your mouse came in the first two you won some money. The children could also bet on a lane for 50p. It was very noisy at times with as shouting, sometimes the mouse would almost get to the end and then turn around and gotback the way they had come, most annoying. The evening got very exciting when a local cat came in and made himself at home on my lap, unaware that not very far away were some rodents he could eat.
We did not win, not even the raffle!
Today neither madam or I got a PB at parkrun, disappointing for us both but was going to happen sooner or later.
This afternoon saw us continue with ‘operation fence construction’ with me continuing with the painting and beginning to feel like a fourth bridge worker! Will it ever end?
