Every since G's dad passed away our house has been filling up with bits and pieces. And to be honest, I'm such a hoarder in the first place there wasn't that much room to put things in anyway.
We found a dog rescue centre that was looking for blankets and bedding so the 4 bins bags full that were siting in the car had a good home to go to. Only problem was the limited opening hours, but we woke up in time to get there so all 4 bags were donated in person along with a carrier bag of cleaning fluids which they said they could use as well.
So as a treat I decided that we'd visit the local farm shop to buy our veg instead of going into town. Some days I really don't want to have to deal with crowds and the farm shop seemed to be a great alternative, with the added benefit of buying British grown food too.
Not bad for £6! And everything was in paper bags too (apart from the cucumber and lettuce) so I have some bags I can throw my vegetable peelings into which can be thrown straight into the composter.
Next G took advantage of the sunshine and mowed the front and back lawns. They have gone a bit loopy since I scattered weed and feed on them a couple of months ago. I took the quiet time as an opportunity to do a bit of beading for my Bead Soup Blog Hop challenge.
Then today, I sat in the garden on a blanket and did some reading.
First I finished a book I've been reading for a while.
Then a cartoony type book. It made me cry!
And then two Choose your own adventure books. I used to read them as a kid, so when I saw these ones at a bookcrossing meet I just had to pick them up and bring them home with me.
