Twiddling knobs!

The incubator has been running since last night, and I have to keep adjusting the thermostat knob! I am trying to get the internal temperature to 37 degrees as recommended in the instructions. You might well ask why I don't turn the dial directly to the mark that says 37?!? Well, the short answer is that there isn't one. No, this is a "cheap and cheerful" incubator and there is a lack of refinements like that. However, we have a thermometer in the box and when it hits 37 and stays there, we will have the knob in the right place...the eggs are coming Tuesday so I hope we get there soon!

Picked a load of lovely broad beans from the garden late this afternoon, and we had half a pound of strawberries yesterday - we had them for tea last night.

Gymnastics this morning - wore the contacts today from 8.45 to about 3.30 so that was good going for me. They certainly do the trick and save my face from attack, but today the YFG kicked my left hand rather badly; sadly I don't think there's anything I can do about that. Exactly 2 weeks to go to the exam now and I am getting a little worried!
