Party time!

This morning was the horticultural society’s Christmas party, which was held at the trading shed.  It was all very traditional with crackers, funny hats, lights, tinsel,  mince pies, sausage rolls, mulled wine and seasonal songs.

I vacated my usual tea making corner and found a quiet spot down the other end where I enjoyed chatting, drinking and eating.  I didn’t win anything on the raffle this year.

I heard someone mutter there’s always one when a member came in to buy six bags of horse manure!

I’ll be back there tomorrow morning helping with the annual stock take.  It’ll then be closed through to Sunday, 6th January when, if we get delivery as promised during the week beforehand, the onion sets and seed potatoes will be on sale. One of my first jobs will be to start sorting out a flowers and vegetables seed order.

Have a good week!

    Glad you enjoyed the party. It sounds as though someone’s busy on their plot, I think mine will be left now until the new year.

    Glad you and your gardening friends enjoyed the party it doesn’t seem like 5 minutes since you were telling us about the last one – how time flies!

    aww your allotments sound heavenly, we are just too big to do a lovely party and have a trade shop. So glad you had a nice time, though I would demand a re-draw for the raffle 😉 Love and hugs xxxx

    Carrie thanks, allotments do have a special appeal don’t they. It’s the first year that I didn’t win anything. Thanks. xx

    Sounds like a great idea having a bit of a Christmas do. You all sound very organised. I need to sit down and get my seed order sorted out too, hopefully during a quiet spell over Christmas.

  12. Flighty says:

    Welly it’s mostly committee members, shed helpers and regular customers who go. Mmm I’d like to think so! It’s a good time to do a seed order. xx

    The mental picture of sipping mulled wine, nibbling mince pies, and crooning seasonal songs in your trading shed, is delightful.

    Do have a beautiful Xmas and I truly wish you a healthy and happy 2013, my friend.XX
