Just poppin in

Just poppin in for a quick chitchat, it's a sunny morning so I must get out walking. It rained overnight, so hopefully we will have a good day ahead of us. Yesterday I was gardening at Helen's, finished cutting back the massive laurel bush, now it is a more suitable size for the garden. The back of it was pushing up against the boundary fence, which was in danger of falling down if left unchecked, it had to have the chop. Next job is to reduce the height of the cherry tree, it is close to the neighbours on the side, and a new fence has to be erected there. I made a start but my loppers are not long enough, even with standing on a ladder, Helen will bring her extending loppers next week so I can reach a bit further.

I called in at the small Tesco at 5pm and managed to bag a few bargains. Celery hearts were 12p so I had two packs. Spring onions, black grapes, stir fry vegetables, and yogurt reduced. I also picked up five jars of Value peanut butter at 62p each. This tastes really nice and is a good price. Total shop £4.80. Last night I made another stew with the stir fry vegetables, celery, swede from last week, and the last few sprouts. This will save me cooking for two more days.

Anyway, must go, got to make my packup. Toodle pip

  6. Aha, a break from broccoli! Well done.
