It has been a glorious day here, though now at 3.45 in the afternoon, the heat is going out of the day and temperatures are on the decline. Saying that though, we had a field trip this morning and the dash showed 9º C so we were able to wear lighter coats and didn’t feel the need for hats, scarves or gloves.
The roads were eerily quiet even though it was past 11am and we were able to park pretty close to the bank to check on our accounts. We are still solvent and things are looking good there. The Puppy Fund is growing nicely, and all we have to do now is find one!
Into a semi craft shop (they no longer have a large range of card making items) I was able to get the fabric leaves I was after so bought two packs of 50, plus a pack of 12 gold and 20 green in another design for some paper flowers I already have. They also had a sheet of silver sticker for anniversary/birthday/best wishes/congratulations reduced to 50p, so I can now use the stork on my bird sheet with ‘Congratulations’ and put it in the box for sale.
On the way home, we purchased three bags of compost and while dinner was cooking, Hubby dug it all in so the greenhouse is ready for our next set of crops. The ‘free roses’ are flourishing really well so I’m glad I’d noticed the shoots on the stems of those I was about to throw away.
Lunch today was a cottage pie for Hubby and a tomato pasta for me, both from the ready meal range in the freezer. Hubby says the pie will never be as good as mine, and I cannot make a pasta dish for 69p.
