I've been manically clearing and tidying everything in sight, even my threads are all evenly spaced with no ends dangling, they wouldn't dare in the current climate, which will of course change when a new wind blows in.
In the meantime there has been lots to do and supervise in the allotment of course, you do have to keep an eye on the staff and make sure they're not slacking.
I do get my hands dirty occasionally, well the gloves anyway.
Looking forward to painting this a nice National Trust green I think.
Now some of you who have been paying close attention will remember that we have had our eye on the next door plot and so far the news is that it is up for reallocation, but there is now a 2 week period for anyone to apply to swap to it if they're a current plot holder and they want to move, so fingers tightly crossed the no-one wants it and it will be ours.
So in the spirit of positive thinking I give you the corner logs/bricks of the summerhouse.
And the boundary (white square) of my personal part of the plot, what do you think of it so far?
So foundations laid, plot division agreed, onto the colour scheme, I'm going to use this lovely Provençal fabric for the furnishings and the summerhouse colour scheme, Ultramarine blue and Windsor yellow I think for accent colour......oooo, I can feel a Kirsty mood board coming on, and the icing on the cake were these wonderful cups and saucers we saw in the charity shop, there were 4 in all, 2 for us and 2 for guests. The lady in the shop thought they were perfect for an allotment summerhouse. So do we so please wish us luck for next Wednesday week.
