I can’t remember…

the last time that I spent more than a couple of days indoors as I did last week. I wouldn’t have minded the snow, which didn’t amount to much and didn’t last long, but with the temperature staying below 0 C it felt much colder due to a strong easterly wind.  I’m thankful that we didn’t get this weather back in December which would have made it a really long winter,  and that it only lasted  a few days.  This coming week is looking much better and warmer, which will be welcome.

This morning I looked round the plot for the first time since Tuesday and was relieved to see that it all looked okay.  Over at the horticultural society trading shed I bought a white flowering primrose which I’ll show once the flowers have opened.

I’ve only ever come across two fiction books that are centred around allotments –  Ivy Lane by Cathy Bramley and Murder Plot by Keith  McCarthy.

However last week I came across the recently published The Allotment Girls by Kate Thompson which I bought for my eReader at the bargain price of 99p.  I’ll do a review once I’ve read it.


Have a good week!

  1. You won’t have any time for reading, too busy catching up!

    thank you for sharing and blessings

    When you are used to being outdoors a lot, having to stay indoors for a prolonged period seems like torture! At least you read a lot, so you have something to keep you entertained.

    We are still in a snowy domain. Temperatures manged to rise to 3 degrees C. Let’s hope that some of your change of weather works its way north. xx

    I bought Allotment Girls too. Currently reading a book set in Rome shortly after Caesar’s death, but think Allotment Girls will be next. Bryant and May place still in Speke, but converted to offices now. Called The Matchworks.

    Glad the snow wasn’t too bad where you are. We’ve still got a covering here, though it’s starting to warm up a bit now and we’ve had some rain today so it’s beginning to clear. I may have to buy that book for my own Kindle, it’s the type of book I enjoy.

      Jo thanks, me too, as more than an inch or so generally causes chaos here. Good to see that it’s improving there as well. Good for you, at 99p it’s worth getting. xx

    I know what you mean about being stuck inside, it’s like being ill. I don’t know how people who don’t read cope. But today, we have a thaw. Hurrah!

  8. CJ says:

    Lovely to see an allotment book, I hope you enjoy it. It was bitterly cold here, but then suddenly warm and springlike this afternoon. Almost all the snow has gone now, thankfully. I hope you have a good week. CJ xx

  9. We went from deep snow to something like spring today and my spirits soared. Hope the warm weather will do the same for you too! Xx

    Not about allotments but gardening, but have you ever read ‘Down the Garden Path’ by Beverley Nichols. I remember reading it in my teens. Hilarious!

  11. Liz says:

    You almost got cabin fever! I agree with the others that it’s good to have a book to turn to when stuck inside. Spring is almost here. . .

    • Flighty says:

      Liz another day or so and I think that I would have! that’s why I always have plenty to read, especially at this time of year. I do hope so. xx

    Brrrrr. 0C with wind sounds like a good reason to stay inside!
