Not any more. Shops here and in Belgium have had strict rules about free plastic bags for years so I have a bag full of long-life bags instead. Shops here are quite inventive about styles and sizes. Just have to remember to take enough when I do a big shop......
Sunny again but nippy in the breeze so I'm pottering inside till it warms up. Possum has headed off back to Namur for summer term but will be back at the end of June unless she finds a student job there for July. OH is driving her to Angers for a thru train to Brussels so only one change. Just as well as she has no concept of packing light and has gone back with new clothes and shoes to squeeze in too.
I hope the cold nights stop soon. I'm using the annex as a temporary greenhouse for toms and squashes and cucs and peppers but need to clear it by Thursday as the tiler is coming to do the floor. My new cold frames are too low now. Might have to get inventive.
Not at all fascinated by Japanese culture and ceremonies but I do love all that cheery cherry blossom and how they seize the moment to enjoy it.
