Well, for the interested few, I still haven’t unwrapped the gift, feeling a bit ooo-er about it! Am willing to submit myself to public consensus so I’ve been trying to insert a poll into ma posts but have been unsuccessful so far! Trying again now.
Where’s the poll gone?
Still – today bought more gifts. The magazine subscription bought for me by Himself has finally arrived, so he is now cuddled up reading it, hmm.
Anyway, remember The Quest – our constant pursuit to be more self-sufficient and recreate our homestead as something of a tinyholding (the smallest type of smallholding), on a tiny type of budget? Happily we’ve already achieved that country-type smell, despite living in town, as Himself happily covered the garden in several sacks full of free horse manure last weekend and it’s constantly rained since, so basically the garden is a pool of liquid excrement, which the dogs are happily playing in then running back through the house! Still, in respect of The Quest, the best gift of the day has been the offer of half an allotment just down by the local park -an elderly family member wants to downsize what he’s doing so he’s offered us the chance of using his ‘spare bit’ in the absence of any real progress on what would be the growing area of our garden!
Himself is thinking about it, whilst he’s reading my Christmas present. Kindly, he is reading extracts out from it to me – I feel another hmmm coming on!
