I'd best not attend. Don't want to spread the man-flu. (Mind you, I'm not convinced that it isn't Ebola, but My Rozie says I'm a sook.)

I bought a beautiful plate from the Artrageous shop a few weeks back. The shop is chocka full of beautiful things - glassware, mosaic items and other goodies. Well worth a visit.

My apologies, the tree lopper is arriving at 9am.
If it falls through (the appointment that is ;)) I will zip down as I really want to see the farm.

I so wish I had a garlic that I could actually grow at my place.

Hoping to pick up some locally grown Russian Garlic while I'm there!
