I feel like I'm, drowning in a sea of renovations! We have done so much, but there's so much more to do. The 5 new windows were finished yesterday. Now I have to add the window trim etc and the more painting of course. :(

I am excited to see how it will look when everything is finished though.

I've got no kitchen :shock: We've put the fridge & microwave in the utility room (big cupboard with the washing machine in it), and that's my lot for the next two weeks.

Mum scares the hell out of me. One shelf in her fridge was full of sauces, pickles, etc.

The youngest one was 2011, and the oldest.... 1998.

I told her I was getting rid, and she seemed OK. Then, on Monday morning (at 6.10am I might add!) she comes into my bedroom and tells me that she's "found my stuff that you threw away".

She went to tie up the bin bag, and it was very heavy. She'd completely forgotten about what I'd done, and went rummaging down the bin to get her jars back. She put them in the fridge.

I went ballistic, and reminded her that they'd been in the bin for nearly 4 days, in a heatwave.

That eventually sank in. I got them out of the fridge, and took them into town and threw them in one of the bins there.

Can you imagine? Good god. If she'd ended up in hospital with food poisoning, and the doctors had found out how it came about, they'd have said that she wasn't fit to look after herself, and make her go into a home.

Somebody shoot me.

They're pickles - preserved. Of course they are alright . . . probably. :?

Actually, she had 2 pickled onions that were August 2013, all the rest were relish-type stuff. The beetroot and horseradish (two jars, by the way, both half used) were black.

One of the things she "rescued" from the bin was Anchovy sauce. :shock:
