Summer 2012

We have had a busy summer this year. We have been camping is Suffolk (at Orchard campsite), seen the Olympic fencing in London, had a day trip to BeWILDerwood and a camping holiday on the Isle of Wight.
The garden has not been at its best due to all the rain and a lack of sun, though we have had 1012g blueberries and lots of tomatoes.

Notes on a Tuesday

Having worked last night and slept most of the night, Hannah gave me the morning off and I went into town and unsuccessfully looked for a mothering sunday present and also new shoes.  Then I went for a hair cut which included hot towels and a flaming cotton bud to burn the hair off my ear lobes!
\nBeing shrove Tuesday I drank 4 double espressos in an attempt to fill up on caffeine before giving it up for lent. Am currently sitting propping the bar up in The United Brethren waiting for a folk session to start. Apparently the beginners session starts at 8 in the back room so may be that is where I will go next time when I actually bring my box.  Am enjoying eves dropping.
