Back Home !
The gardens have gone rampant in just a week! We have winds and rain forecast so we threw our bags in the door, took the fridge we bought at auction in the outhouse and stood it up to settle, and attacked the fruits and vegetables we thought might spoil in rain and wind. We also checked the drains and bought in some wood for the fire in case we needed one. Phew! D. also took down some of the overhanging damson branches which were heavy with fruit. We have had many broken branches this year. It has certainly made picking damsons easier for tomorrow!
My youngest daughter looked after our place (again) while we were away. Again my godson gave a hand when she was otherwise engaged. He and I agreed that a bit of barter was in order for the favour(though he would do it anyway) so returning favour for favour I am going to take zip out of some of his old trousers and put it into his working trousers. Don't you just love a skill barter?!
Was hoping to go a to a local show tomorrow, but I don't think I will have time as there are BUCKETS of produce to process or sell, piles of washing to do and catch-up on the jobs I have been letting slide for the past few weeks, with being away so much. The diary is very full for next week so I'd best buckle down and get organised - not my strong point !
I notice that I have a new follower, but I can't see who they are! So welcome anonymous follower!!
