Hello. Just a quickie to say I'm back. I spent the afternoon with Compost Woman and her family at Ledbury. Had a lovely lunch, and a good old natter, just like old pals. Sarah gave me a guided tour of the Ponderosa, I mean the garden , the veg patch, the chicken runs, the orchard, the wood, and the pond. She showed me her crochet and her quilting, and we ate the home made bread. It was all very farmhousey. I came away with a dozen eggs and a plant, and she gained one of my shopping bags, a good swap I thought.
My house/cat sitter has watered the plants for me, she is a star, and the sunflower plants have reached the top of the canes now. Nothing has died while I've been away, and all cats are accounted for, ha ha.
I'll catch you tomorrow. Toodle pip.
Hello, I am a 73 year old retired lorry driver. After trucking for 32 years I'd had enough, went part time when I was in my mid 50's and stopped altogether when I reached 60. Yippeeee, now I am free to do as I like. I live with three cats, I am very careful with my spending, only buying what I need. I have no qualms about buying second hand from car boot sales and charity shops, and getting free stuff from skip diving. Money saved is put towards holidays, a decent car, and days out. I love life, and it needn't cost a fortune to enjoy it.
