So, who knows how long my week off will turn out to be as not sure how long it'll take for a full mutiny situation to develop. Sigh.
Anyway, I'm free at the moment. This morning I decanted my purple peapod wine into its demi-john with accompanying bloopy airlock thing:
I admit it looks rather like raspberry smoothie but it's blooping away encouragingly and smells pleasantly of wine...
I also went to the nursery and bought some winter veg having been all fired up from watching Gardeners' World last night:
I bought a strawberry plant for £1.29 that had at least 4 runners so that was a bargain:
I had shut the hens in before I went but they had all been really really mean to Maud so as punishment I let her out and kept the others shut in. Maud seemed to enjoy the lack of aggravation and finally got to have a dust bath without being chased off for the sake of it:
|Maud luxuriates in the hen equivalent of a bath with bubbles, candles, magazine and chocolate|
Why is my crochet always so wonky?? Anyway I love doing the flowers, they are great fun. I've done my 9th granny square for the Sissinghurst Hot Garden blanket and a few other bits too. Nicky's coming over in a while for a meeting of the Country Crafters Guild so hopefully there will be some knitting and hooking to enjoy.
