Back down to earth with a bump now :0) I've got Henry choc lab here with me waiting for a walk, he's coming again tomorrow, and then I'm looking after Ben over the weekend. The diary is looking pretty full for June, not much time for breathing, ha ha.
I've made a start on the hedge trimming, I have a fairly long Leylandi hedge, 6ft tall so I need to get up and down on the stepladders. I thought about making the job a bit easier and getting an electric trimmer, but that wouldn't be very frugal. Also we have to cut down on our electricity use because in a few years time we will be facing blackouts when it is rationed. It aint going to last forever :-( So it's onward and upward with the shears.
I went into the 20 21 Arts Centre yesterday, to pick up a copy of the latest brochure which lists future exhibitions and events. There is my name for all to see, I shall be there on the 31st of July showing my craft work. They are having some workshops over the week, although I won't be running them they are using some of my ideas for which I get the credit for. I know it sounds a bit barmy but I have had to be CRB checked just to set up a table and talk to people, because children will be around. A bit over the top if you ask me, but I went along with it because the council pay for it.
My gas and electricity bills arrived while I was away, and my cat sitter friend Janet duly paid them with a cheque I left for her. Thank goodness they are back to normal, a big drop from last time. Gas was £42.64, down from £96.89, and electricity was £23.44, down from £45.99, and both meters were read. Big sigh of relief, that's more like it.
Henry is pestering for a walk so gotta go. I'll be back later with another holiday report.
