I guess there are many things mind boggling in the world - and I also guess, in fairness, it doesn't take much to boggle my mind, but I want to share a couple with you.
First we are suffering from sleep deprivation today as we had a busy night.
At three am we woke to an 'odd noide'. It was a regular sort of beeping/clicking noise. At first we lay there and debated it. Then Nigel got up and turned the fan off but the noise continued. He listed to where the TV was - nope. Then he realised it was coming from outside. And all the time the noise continued.
He figured it was the burglar alarm bod witht he siren so then we were worried it was a pre-cursor for the siren to go off. And all the time the noise continued.
He went down and opened the front door and realised it was much mich louder outside. Loud enough to be disturbing the neighbours. And all the time the noise continued.
So, clothes on, long ladder out and at 3.15 am Nigel was up the top of the ladder with me shining a torch for him and dismantling the burglar alarm box in the light drizzle. And all the time the noise continued.
He had the wrong sort of screwdriver so down he came and up he went. And all the time the noise continued.
He finally got the battery out and .....
And all the time the noise continued.
That was the mind boggling bit. We both just looked at it, wondering if perhaps this really was a dream. Nope
It must have been residual power as the noise did stop. By 4 am we were back in bed - wide awake and worried we were going to be shattered.
Why did it suddenly throw a wobbly? No idea. Mind boggling.
My second mind boggling blip comes in the form of timetables. I am not a logical mind really. I can do it when I have to but I like creativity best. It is timetable time. Worst time of the year. But there it is. Mind boggling.
Today I have a new page to share made in half term for the June Scrapology challenge.
