He has also had some success with a painting competition. Last weekend Stuart and Luke went down to Gloucester to a minicon (conference for wargaming), and Luke won the junior painting competition with his dwarf.
I have been busily creating more bunting! Finishing off my order for 30 metres for a nursery, and making a quick string of bunting for general sale, just plain, using some complimetary fabrics. A bit pink for my liking, but then it is not for me!!
Related to my own health, I have given notice on my allotment. Sad, and a hard decision to make when I remember the lovely times I have had down there, and the successful crops. But also having to realistic about what I can achieve, and how having the allotment has been at the expense of our own garden, which has the potential to be enjoyed by the whole family rather than just me enjoying the allotment. I am looking forward to getting our garden back into a lovely state. Before I had the allotment, I can remember a neighbour saying to me that she could imagine fairies living at the bottom of our garden, well, 5 years and 3 chickens later, you can definitely not say that about it now. So I will get my outdoor fix right here, and I hope to sneak a few crops into the flower beds (obviously not on the same scale as the allotment!) Looking forward now to spring, and seed sowing for our garden.
