I have been feeling a bit iffy this week .... always the way when I have no children to look after and some time to myself .... so a battery recharge was called for although I have taken advantage of sitting round on my bum and completed some more bits to take to the Delapre Abbey Craft Fair in Northampton in 2 weeks time.
We popped out to do some shopping earlier so I don't have to visit a shop till next week hopefully .... there is a shop that sells everything for 90p and just look at these seeds ... 15 small packets or 4 large packets for just 90p .... that was a bargain I just couldn't resist and Wilko had some onion sets for £1.25 a bag. We are trying to grow more for ourselves this year as money is tight due to short time working and hope to have a plentiful supply of our own salads, veg and herbs . I really miss my dad's allotment ... prior to his stroke he grew everything for years and I don't think we ever had to visit a greengrocers ... there is something about the smell and taste of home grown that the supermarkets can never capture, even with their organic ranges. Strawberry plants were on offer in B & Q this week too so got some of those to plant in a tub on the patio.
Yesterday the postman brought my lovely giveaway prize from Pat at The Sewing Room - this was my first win and I am absolutely delighted. Pat is a very clever and generous lady - the apron and hat are so cute and beautifully made and she had popped in my fave choc too.
Hope to raise the energy to have a de-clutter at the weekend and do my first car boot of the year to turn my trash into cash. Be back soon .....
