Lovely surprise in the post this morning

Look what I got in the post this morning

What a lovely surprise. Someone who has stayed on the campsite has taken the trouble to contact the Camping and Caravanning Club and has nominated us in the category of " Most friendly welcome".
Makes all the toilet cleaning worthwhile!

We had a complete change in the weather this morning, as a bank of cloud moved over giving us a little drizzley misty rain, not enough to ruin the hay thankfully. Him Outside spent some time in the polytunnels catching up on tomato de-shooting, which it has been too hot to do for a week. Then he got some weeding done with  me popping in and out to help between making bread and biscuits.

Guess how much mess a split bag of chicken feed makes in the back of the jeep- answer = LOTS!
In all the years of bringing home  bags of feed this has never happened before, but the pellets went everywhere, trickling down into gaps and even getting inside one of the folded down back seats. Took us ages to collect up as much as possible, then the rest was hoovered up with the hoover bag then tipped into the chicken run.

I'm still gooseberry picking and have picked and sold 107kg so far- that's 214 punnets!!!
