We were coming home from town at about 7.15pm tonight when the YFG said that there were strange lights in the sky and I should look. I explained that when one is driving, one should really be looking at the road ahead and not trying to look at lights off to the right in the sky!
"Yes, but Mum, they're UFOs!" says she.
"No, they're probably just aeroplanes from the RAF," I suggest.
"But you don't KNOW," it went on, "So they are UFOs because we don't know what they are. They could be helicopters, too." So yes, I agreed that since we couldn't identify them, they were UFOs. Anything for a quiet life!
Today has been a cold but clear day, and we've been out and about. The FH has been to his weekly lunch, with his friends. One friend has sent me five duck eggs to put in the incubator - that is going to be interesting as I will need to find out how long to incubate them and at what temperature. Not sure what he wants to do with the ducklings if we are successful!!
