Well my hair was cut yesterday by my daughter's friend for just £14 instead of the £26 charged in the village. After all the lovely comments on my blog regarding hair colour I decided to go for purple...she had run out! I felt cheated! Nonetheless, I am pleased with the cut and it will certainly last 6 weeks until my next appointment. I had a lovely cup pf tea and a chat afterwards with DD and the GC before setting off home to see what G had been up to on the allotment.
He had pulled some carrots for tea. We have not been successful with carrots at all and G puts it down to not having enough time to prepare the soil properly. If you look to the left (on G's hand) you can see a tiny carrot, which is the size I like. I bet the big ones are totally inedible :/
We have been unsuccessful with radishes too. The first few were lovely but the subsequent ones were tough or eaten away . However, we have eaten some lovely lettuces and potatoes and the tubs in the garden have produced lots of delicious strawberries.
In our mission to sell or donate stuff we don't need I went to offer a ceramic pot of Calla lilies to our neighbour, as he had admired them, and shut my blooming finger in the metal gate catch. Cor, it came sharp....
A big welcome to Terra, my new follower. Welcome aboard!
The craft fair on Saturday was dismal. It rained and footfall was poor. I took £5 which was the cost of the table :( No one took more than about £20 so I have decided that I will do no more. I can sell more on the internet than at the fair and can do it from home too, so that's my decision made. I made a sale of £12 last night whilst watching TV with my feet up!
It's raining at the moment and thunderstorms are forecast for this afternoon so I will pop out to post my sale item before lunch....
Stay safe everyone and thanks so much for popping in x
