HOT GOSSIP - Yippee!

I braved the wind and rain again to go out last night for another 'Scrapbook' workshop. But you probably don't want to read about the 12 of us having a great time in a tiny village hall tucked down a remote twisty turny lane in the middle of nowhere (it probably isn't so bad in daylight, but it sure is the back of beyond on a wild October night).

Get on with it woman I hear you say!

Mrs M phoned whilst I was out last night with the news that the person who took over 3/4 acre next to me for the past two years and left it to grow prizewinning mammoth weeds, has decided to give it up! Yippee. She thought that I might have already heard the gossip on the village grapevine she said apparently. But as I am not one for gossip, I hadn't.

There are now two further 1/4 acre plots available, which can be let in reduced sizes, so I am thinking of volunteering to write up something for the village magazine to get some really interested people up there.

If you're happy and you know it clap your hands
If you're happy and you know it clap your hands
If you're happy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you're happy and you know it clap you hands!

No apologises for spontaneous outburst of joyful singing and hand clapping. I am so looking forward to meeting my new neighbour and sharing a chat over the 'garden' fence. They call our allotments 'gardens' in these here parts of the wild east.

(I wonder if he would keep an eye on my chooks when I go away, I could have even more then. Pat did say 'so long as I don't have to have anything to do with them and they don't interfere with us going away')

Hmmm - Pause for thought!

I will be able to show you the progress over the next year of both our lotties and can compare notes.

It is 6.45am and I am off to peel those carrots - I never did get around to it yesterday.

Clap clap Clap clap Clap clap Clap clap Clap clap Clap clap Clap clap

La la lala la la lala la la lala la la lala la la lala la la lala la lala


  1. Blimey, someones happy then !

    It's so nice to see a dedicated blog by an obviously dedicated person.
    Indeed, the sun, the rain, the snow and the wind are all important to our way of life and sustaining the 'natural balance'.

    You can't moan about it, so sing along with allotment lady - she has the right idea.

    Brilliant blog and lovely graphics.

    Your carrots look normal to me.
    Im making raised beds too.Mine are only about 3ft square as its quite hard work and I dont have loads of spare wood.
    Hope you get someone friendly on the next lottie to you.
