Ooh - presents!
This week I've had a house guest, a friend from Scotland. She brought loads of gifts with her, including home-made jams and fruit butter, yards and yards of quilting fabrics of my favourite kinds, hand-made toys for the children and lots of other things including some packets of seeds. We had a great time but I'm not going to post a full report here, as I've already done that on the Usenet newsgroup where we met, rec.crafts.textiles.quilting http://tinyurl.com/nq2hq
I also got a parcel containing lots and lots of packets of seeds from a friend I met on a completely unrelated Usenet newsgroup, uk.rec.sheds http://tinyurl.com/lvtjq
And at our favourite farm shop, Norbury Farm http://www.norburyfarm.com/ the greengrocer gave us a packet of seeds.
So now I have lots of seeds, I haven't had the time to get to the allotment and rotavate it. That's planned for this weekend, as well as making a dent in the growing pile of essays waiting to be marked, giving a tutorial in Liverpool, knocking down a wall in the kitchen and boxing up everything from the kitchen and bedroom in preparation for builders coming on Monday. Oh and there's a football match on the telly.
