I seem to have done little but spend money in the last two or three days. First I fixed a holiday in Madiera - a life long wish! Second, Dorothy and I went to the best nearby garden centre to buy an orchid as a birthday present and we looked around - the new garden needs a new garden shed and I fancy a green house. We left having ordered one of each to be delivered in 6 to 8 weeks. Both are a bit bigger than I had envisaged. We got a very nice orchid too.
In the afternoon we went to a smashing birthday party held in a garden all sitting at tables with the family's best linen, flowers, best china - and best cakes. And the sun shone!!
Third by devious means (Debbie Richardson actually), I learnt of a Louet 24 shaft dobby looking for a new owner. And it is going to be me!!!! Well you can't let something like that languish can you? So tomorrow, I drive up to Cumbria and fetch it. Yes, I know it is mad to buy it when it then has to move to Reading but - -
And I have started weaving on the Megado. It is slow but it is working. I shall add a photo tomorrow.
