My goodness me what a week this has been. Retired and with all the time in the world is a myth and it is a mystery as to how you get all the ends tied up and all the bits of the puzzle into place despite having nothing better to achieve than that. We finally got the Explorer through the MOT and that was a long and arduous challenge but all done for another two years. The Camper has a gold plated exhaust system fitted after the chap at the tyre place manage to unhinge Mikes perfectly adequate repair by jacking the can at a ridiculous angle but gold exhaust suits us, well, I hope it is gold at the price we paid.
The allotment is holding it’s own and all we can do now is hope for regular rain. The strawberries have one more harvest and then we start on the broad beans, we have been eating peas and spinach already only sadness is that we are away and we may just miss a few but the house sitter will feast and go home a much more rounded and healthier person. We have eaten two cauliflowers and a ton on spinach and today I made black current, and raspberry jam. Phew..
This is very exciting and interesting picture, Oh yes it is ….This is the beginning of the Electric to the mobile homes, the box is in, the wire is coming down from the supply box on the pole and now we have to wait for the consuel to call and check Mikes handy work, That has the potential of taking a life time to happen but we are forever hopeful that the vans will be habitable by August.
Ann came around to see us and wondered why we were not selling our propagated plants and frankly I don’t know why, so Mike suggested I seriously start taking cuttings from wherever we are and give it a go and here I am packing lush little cutting into a HOSS poo bag to keep them fresh. Well, they are now in the pots so all we have to do……you guessed it…is wait.
