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!
