Up very early again and it is dark outside. It's warm inside though, definitely not a dressing-gown-and-slippers start to the day. Warm and cosy.
I got loads done yesterday. Two loaves of my usual granary bread for a friend, shortbread biscuits (delicious), prepped loads of tomatoes (into boiling water so the skins just slip off) and runner beans - both for the freezer, had two people for coffee (separately and no biscuits left now), took a tour of the allotment with Beth and discussed what we need to do next and finished the ironing. And had a few snoozes as well. Plus other bits and bobs.
I don't know what they were spreading on the fields but yesterday afternoon I was forced to close the windows as there was a most unpleasant pong. Not the usual 'healthy country air' sort of pong, something a lot nastier that made 'airing' the house a very definite no-no.
It's gone now, thank goodness.
I know it's very early but I have an early start so I will make this short and sweet. Good luck for the new school year to all my friend, young and not-so-young and, everyone, have a splendid day!
your pong was probably pig slurry which they spread on the fields but boy does it hum.ReplyDelete
The local consensus is that it was chicken poo. :-)ReplyDelete
