Best get yours cleaned and on the market asap then Fidget. We thought ours would take up to 2 years to sell, like others in the village, but we happened on the right buyers early on and it took just 10 days on the market. Lovely for us as we could then buy this one which suits us well but maybe just a bit too quick for getting all our stuff well organised. Start sorting now!
Hosta - fingers crossed you're on your way home safely.
We have been to Les Sables d'Olonne again today. We'd hoped the first two Globe sialors would be in by now but the recent strong winds mean they've had to go up level with the Isles of Scilly and tack back down so tomorrow now - maybe. We had to pick up anew chap for the satnav then I took hubby to a big garden centre - Villa Verde - to see if they had water butts on sale. No, but they did have some decent mixed seed bird food and packets of bulbs all reduced to 1€ so I have more scented daffs, botanical tulips, some simple, short gladioli - Byzantine style - and some scillas. Also a tower for the kittens who think the sofas are for climbing on and claw sharpening and a blue Weber BBQ reduced. They had large pots of either dark or creamy hellebores for 19€ - excessive - and smaller ones of doubles, speckled, yellow and picotee for 9€ but those were covered in greenfly and white fly so I resisted. Daphne aurora marginata started at 30€!
Home via fishmonger, SM and freezer shop. I am now resting the broken toe and minding kittens while OH walks the doglets. Fabulous sun again but freezing and with added windchill.
Busy - thanks for posting that link. I shall have a look. Got OH all excited about the nerines advert on here but they don't ship out of the UK. Humph.
