So, may as well do something useful as well as cycling - go for some potatoes and eggs from my favourite smallholding. I always stop to chat to the man there, he has some lovely little dogs, and a couple of ponies. Sadly his wife died earlier in the year and it hit him really badly, they had been married for so long, in their 80s.
A dozen eggs, medium, £2.00, chickens running around the place! Potatoes, not from them but grown within a couple of miles, £1.25 for 5lb. Carrots 3lb for £1.00. I didn't need any this time so helped keep the weight down didn't buy any.
Here are a few photos of the old ads on the wall.
Isn't it quaint. I love these.
I then made my way back home via The Black Sheep Wool Barn, a little detour, thought I'd have a cup of tea there. I took my Wingspan scarf to show them, as the girls love to see what you've created out of their yarn. I sewed crystal droplets at the end of each point.
Took a few pictures of the way back. Sorry for the poor quality but they are on my phone.
The last two were taken at home. I can't understand why my Rowan tree still has its leaves, whereas just down the road, the ones with red berries have berries but no leaves!
On Saturday we had such a hail storm. Also thunder and lightening with the storm right above us. I pulled the plugs on the TV and computer, even though I've a surge protector on the computer. I have seen peoples houses being hit by lightning going through their TV and all the wires, so didn't want to take any chances. It took a lot of non technical fiddling to get the time back on the video/dvd box (which is also a Freeview and I don't understand but can mostly work it by trial and error). The road was white over and the lawn was covered in hail. A miserable day when I didn't go out of the house!!!
Anyway, that's enough for now. It's 23.49 and I need to wash some dishes, not having any hot water earlier. I will be posting some pictures of my latest creation, a pointed front vest top in a lovely stripey Noro Yarn. I can't wait to sew it up and show you the pictures. I just hope it looks as good on as it does off.
