Here's some more bits of my week up the end of the lane.
Last Saturday I went to look at my nearest farmers market. It's in a village hall about 10 miles away on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
The stalls included someone with beef, pheasants and venison; honey and candles; Pakenham Mill flour; and a family who, like me and Col, were in at the beginning of the Suffolk Smallholders Society, they are still going strong with their Gloucester Old Spot pork and jams and chutneys. I hadn't seen G for about 10 years so of course she didn't know about Colin. There was also a market gardener with a stall outside. I bought some lovely fresh purple sprouting broccoli - so delicious - it lasted me for 3 meals.
Drove all the way to the swimming pool one morning only to to find it closed due to a power surge which had damaged lots of the electrical circuits, they said it should be all sorted for next week.......think I'll ring and check before setting out.
When I go to the library van I park in a pub car-park - at lunchtime, so this month I decided to go in and have a carvery roast lunch - very delicious it was too - and a treat not to have to wash up after a cooked meal.
Spent several minutes mid-week trying to catch a mouse that kept appearing and disappearing in the living room, Polly cat was no help, she just stood there looking behind the log basket long after the mouse had gone under the armchair. Next day I got up from the settee and found I'd been sitting on a dead mouse! 😲 How?....................... It was very flat!
This week I've been grateful for
- Being prepared for the electric going off
- Plenty to read
- More wood for the wood burner = More years here.
The weather forecast is more hopeful for the weekend - colder but dry and bright at last. Everyone I know is so fed up with all the wet days we've been having. Perhaps I'll be able to start getting the newly cut logs into a heap and visit a Jumble Sale too.
Have a lovely weekend whatever you are planning
