Well, since we're all domestic today, I use powdered Ariel for soaking stain but mostly pots and pans when I've "caramelised" things. Biotex is much better but I can't get it here. Use appropriate liquids for washing clothes, not powders.
We have spent our morning raiding the SM and DIY shop and are about to go and buy compost for my treasures. It's warm and sunny and the birds are in full communication mode but I have no idea what most of them are. We have two magpie nests in teh garden now so there's been argy-bargy over lunch. We get owls hooting at night but I've only seen one tawny since we moved here tho I know there are barn owls out there too.
We had little owls in the Belgian garden for several years and they would bring their young to hunt but then disappeared, never to be seen again. I shall be erecting assorted nesting boxes for owl and smaller birds in due course.
I once sang in the Free Trade Hall as part of the school prize day celebrations. Moved to Cheshire aged 13 and no school choir. I do love the acoustics in churches and cathedrals and have been known to go and sit thru evensong, even tho I am a devout atheist.
