Hi everyone, just to stand up for we mere males on the tree decoration front I have 4 to do.
The first is already done, for the Shop, in a competition. Our theme is replica fruit, veg., packets of provisions, tins etc. We don't expect to win, but at least we should raise a titter or two. I do 2 trees here, always the same, and will be doing another where I shall be spending Christmas Day.
Sorry to here about you tribulations on the tulip front, Gardengirl, have you time to do some more, which will give you an extended season? You might get some tail end bargains at this time.
Yes, it was a very sad sight to see the house fire nearby. The massive Fire Brigade turnout was in part to protect all the surrounding thatched houses too. One story is that the family left the washing machine going, and this may have been the source, although this is not confirmed. Anyway the village is rallying round to help. The family is well known and popular. They are now staying in a holiday-let house nearby, and there is a collection for them in the Shop. Ironically the lady of the house is featured riding her horse through the Forest, on the front cover of our Calendar.
On a brighter note tonight I am going to see Gregory Porter live for the 3rd. time. Hope you are all catching up with this marvellous and original singer/songwriter. He is destined for great stardom, along with the best.
now to complete my cards.....
