Having started work at 07.45 this morning after a 35 minute drive, I'm shattered tonight, but, given that A - I've enjoyed every bit of it and B - I didn't get as much done last night as I wanted to, I was determined to do some bits today I left off yesterday.

I've neglected my seedlings a bit over the last week or so, and I was determined to redeem myself to them. So I've re-potted them nicely,fed them all with those ball things wot Lou gave me and given them a good watering. Oh, and a full blown heartfelt apology which they seemed to appreciate.

Talking of rewards, I made a lovely old gent with end stages of motor-neurone disease smile today. It doesn't get more rewarding than that.

My disorganisation has made me pay a price today too. Determined to start beading my heartagram, I have searched high and low for my white pencil. Can I find it? Can I heck as like. After 30 minutes of hunting, I find my alternative scribe, my gold gel pen. Not my first choice because, although it's nicer and easier to use, it's also harder to wash off, but never the less I found it. So I've started out mapping the beading. Please see attached.

It won't be long until I'll be in bed though now. The Co-op in the morning (fruit and veg not supermarket), then a couple of hours of house work, a coffee with a friend and out working again. I accepted my first solo job today also which was pretty cool as they obviously don't think that I'm a total waste of space. I like that.

Talking of Co-op, I cooked paprika lemon chicken for tea tonight. The meat was from the Co-op as my Hubby had picked it up, but it was Freedom Food certified. I don't think I can ever eat cheap chicken again the taste was so incredible. This creates a quandary, though, doesn't it? What is the ethical thing to do? Support your local butcher with standard raised meat or buy Freedom Food from the Co-op? I can't achieve both. I have the same issue with oranges. I can either buy Fairtrade oranges from a supermarket, or I can buy them from a local small business.


  1. I think you'll find that the correct ethical route would be to go vegetarian :)

  2. Vegetarian oranges!!! That's right!! That;s what I need to do :)
