I have to say that all the shop assistants today were very very helpful and pleasant - I think the shops are hurting and are grateful for any custom. My little effort will have helped a tiny bit perhaps...but I have learned I have days when I can shop successfully and days when I can't find a dam thing I want or like. As I ended up carrying several shopping bags that may have helped....maybe they thought, wow she is buying not just looking.
Isn't this a beauty ? Ages ago I planted caulis, broccoli, sprouts ( ha ha ;remember those pea sized things! ) and cabbage. We ate the first cauli back on July 25 and the last 2 are ready now after all this wait but what beauties they are. When it is this crisp, it's even nice raw . Even nicer with cheese and mustard sauce.
Little roses for Liz if she is reading this. I have been thinking of you all and will remember you especially tomorrow.
I am thinking also of any of my blogging friends who are facing a dreadful clean up after SANDY.
