I awoke this morning at 6.35am, like an excited child on christmas morning.
Keener and I went on an allotment related shopping trip yesterday. We dont have many of these as we are really trying not to buy anything for our allotment, instead recyling, skip rummaging, generally making use of anything we can get our hands on. Some of our findings can be viewed on a previous post Skips, woodchips and local scamps.
Yesterday was an exeption. We had worked really hard on constructing our shed. As we had done such a good job we decided we would treat ourselves to a few essential shed items.
A portable gas stove, 12 gas canisters and a cooking pot/kettle.
Alltogether 35 pounds well spent. This may seem a little extravagent when we go on about doing all this allotment stuff on a very low budget. This will be our only big spend. I dont think we have have spent as much as 35 pounds to date on our whole allotment. We have been really lucky to have been given, found or made most of the stuff we have needed to get our allotment up and running.
Anyways this is why I woke with such excitment.
Coffee in the shed, on a lovely morning looking out over our allotment with a beautiful backdrop of views across bristol.
